Daniel Craig admits to being a gamer, has warning for Activision

05-Nov-2007 • Gaming

James Bond star Daniel Craig has revealed that he is addicted to computer games - much to the disapproval of his producer girlfriend Satsuki Mitchell.

Daniel said: “I play games. Hands up. I’m quite into ones that have a big fat story line - reports ShowBizSpy.

“‘Halo’ is good because it’s shooting aliens.

“Those ultra-violent ones I can play for half-an-hour and then I feel dirty. ‘Vice City’, for example - I think, ‘Oh yes, all right, I’ve stolen 18 cars. I’ve had enough now.’

“I have to pick my time well. If my girlfriend sees the box then it’s all over. If I get some free time, when she goes away for the weekend, I’ll go and play some games.

“I can switch the phone off and not see anybody for a couple of hours. That is blissful. It’s just as well I don’t have much spare time or I would probably fritter it away playing computer games.”

However, 39-year-old Craig admits that he wasn’t overly keen on being involved in a computer game based on his movie ‘Casino Royale’.

He recalls: “When I started signing contracts for Bond I said, ‘I’m not doing the computer game’ and they said, ‘Tough, you are’.

“I said to the people making the Bond game, ‘You’ve got to make this good because there is so much rubbish out there.’ “
