Robin Williams Talks Online Gaming
You know what's cool? Learning that one of the true geniuses of comedy is a definite gamer.
Long-time comedian and Academy Award-winning actor Robin Williams was a guest on "The Tonight Show with Conan 0'Brien" recently, and he took some time to talk about his online gaming experiences. Not surprisingly, he tosses in plenty of jokes to go along with it - he does this better than anyone - and we laughed at the idea of video game military veterans. "They're spawning everywhere!" HAha. Feel free to check out the relevant video clip and be prepared to smile; we think it's bad-ass that this guy plays online. Who wouldn't want to run into him on the battlefield? He'd have the unfair advantage; he'd make everyone laugh so hard he'd be able to mow us all down without much effort. We've also heard Williams has a thing for the Battlefield franchise and let's not forget that his daughter is named Zelda. Oh, there could be other reasons for that name, but it's apparently true that she was named after The Legend of Zelda. We've heard stories of other big Hollywood names being into gaming, but some of those are just bogus claims for the sake of publicity.
Williams sounds like a true-blue gamer. And if that's the case, we officially invite him to a match in any online game he chooses...maybe Killzone 2?
