However, despite the aspersions of the ever-shrinking number naysayers, many of the biggest names in Hollywood are increasingly embracing videogames as a valuable medium to tell stories and perform their craft. In fact, some of those who have attained acting immortality by winning Academy Awards for their work in film have begun lending their talents to videogames.
