11 random objects that look like gaming executives

Objects of desire

Every year, the most powerful men and women in the games industry put themselves in the spotlight at E3 and other press events. So, naturally, our first thought was to make fun of them. It's all good-natured, of course. We found a bunch of random objects that looked like the games industry's biggest stars, and Photoshopped them next to images of the real people for comic effect. Now, we make our fair share of funny features here on GamesRadar, but honestly--genuinely--we're deeply proud of what we've created here...

Here's a picture of a potato that doesn't look like anyone in the games business. Oh well. It's amazing how many people from this industry find their mirror image in every day items. If you find any more, let us know in the comments below.
