    Gaming Look-a-Likes

    (thanks to Jane Douglas on msn tech & gadgets)

    "Ever begun playing a new game with the sneaking suspicion you had seen this guy (or gal) before? We certainly have, and we have assembled a collection of our favourite gaming lookalikes accordingly.

    Some resemblances may be coincidental, others intentional; game developers might well have certain celebrities in mind when they design characters, even if they don't admit to it. At any rate, check out gaming's dead ringers and tell us who we have missed off our list..."

    Half-Life's silent hero Gordon Freeman bears more than a passing resemblance to Eric Clapton…

    An obvious choice, perhaps: Rhona Mitra was an official Lara Croft lookalike, after all - though it's a tough call between her and Angelina Jolie of the Tomb Raider flicks.

    Sam Fisher of the Splinter Cell games is a dead ringer for George Clooney in the right light (and the right camo gear).

    Two blonds fond of archery and green clothing: it's Legolas rather than Orlando Bloom who resembles Link, to be fair...

    Joanna Dark of the Perfect Dark games might well have been inspired by Milla Jovovich as Leeloo in the Fifth Element.

    Andrew Sachs (Manuel of Fawlty Towers, that is) could pass for Mario at a pinch.

    Max Payne has a touch of Michael Madsen about him. It remains to be seen whether Mark "Marky Mark" Wahlberg will do quite as well in the title role of the upcoming Max Payne movie.
