Daniel Craig admits he's addicted to videogames

01-Oct-2010 • Gaming

007 May have saved the world countless times and always got the girl, but actor Daniel Craig, spends his down time with joystick in hand.

It seems that the British born star is not content with taking down the bad guys for a living, so when he gets a spare moment it’s straight to the console for some pixellated pandemonium.

“I play games. Hands up. I’m quite into ones that have a big, fat storyline”, said Craig in a recent interview.

“Those ultra-violent ones I can play for half an hour then I feel dirty. ‘Vice City’ for example – I think, oh yes, alright, I’ve stolen 18 cars. That’s enough now.”

But he is under no illusions about his girlfriend Satsuki Mitchell’s feelings on the matter.

“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.”
