The stars behind gaming's voices

Game: Omikron: The Nomad Soul (PC, Dreamcast)
Star: David Bowie as Boz
Known for: The Man Who Fell to Earth, Ziggy Stardust

Not only did David Bowie provide the game's soundtrack, but also appeared as a virtual being named Boz in the game too. We must admit, he did look rather cool, with a polygon face that broke into sections of colour... but the game itself was a bit pants. Especially with a text font so alien it was impossible to read. Bah.

Game: Ecco The Dolphin: Defender of the Future
Star: Tom Baker
Known for: Doctor Who, Little Britain

Tom Baker - Narrator (Ecco The Dolphin - Dreamcast, PS2)
Tom Baker's had a bit of a resurgence recently. We'd imagine it's hard to be known for anything else after being Doctor Who, but in Britain at least he's probably known more now for narrating TV comedy series Little Britain. Either way, he managed to bring much gravitas to the opening of Ecco the Dolphin: Defender of the Future. And we suppose he had to accept the job of narrating the awful Little Britain: The Video Game.
