About the Clash of the Titles tournament

We’re putting games head to head for your votes to earn the honor of entering the Green Man Gaming Hall of Fame.

In this round of Clash of the Titles we pitted a whole bunch of celebrities together to see who could claim the prestigious title of Best Celebrity Appearance in a Video Game.

There’s some serious (and not so serious…) celebrity appearances in some of our favourite games, but who is really deserving of the prize? We asked you to find out. Thousands upon thousands of votes were cast and bitter blood was shed in the digital arena. Finally, a champion was found...

The Contenders

Ezio - Assassin’s Creed II

Ezio - Assassin’s Creed II

Milo says: Ezio would clearly win in this battle because he’s like Altair but with a personality. Armed with every weapon under the sun and Leonardo da Vinci at his back, there is nothing that he could not slay. Who else can say that they’ve punched out the Pope? And even if he COULD fail, he would simply de-sync and have another go.

Corvo - Dishonored

Corvo - Dishonored

Alex says: This whalepunk hero is obviously the superior assassin because not only is he a master of blades and bombs, he is also 100% magic. Corvo is so powerful that he can kill you in a literal blink of an eye. His magic skills are also backed up with the flyest mechanical mask this side of Dunwall.

And the winner is...


There were some serious contenders for this title and it’s no mean feat to push The Illusive Man (Martin Sheen) or Charles Dance’s Nilfgaardian Emperor (The Witcher) out of the running for this famed prize.

It was a close-fought battle but Mark Hamil’s Joker was voted as the best appearance and we think this might just be the highlight of his career. Move over Star Wars, Mark has a new calling...Green Man Gaming awards!

In the end it was Dance vs Hamill, Luke Skywalker vs Tywin Lannister, The Joker vs Emhyr var Emreis (that’s the Nilfgaardian, by the way). After another close round, Mark Hamill takes the prestige of our esteemed award as the greatest celebrity who has ever appeared in a video game (2017).

Ezio Auditore da Firenze (Assassin's Creed)
Corvo Attano (Dishonored)
