Let's be real here. We live in a world where just about everybody plays video games once in a while. Maybe you play Mario Kart with your kids. Maybe you are the master of Minecraft. Or maybe you just spend the bus ride playing Candy Crush on your iPhone. Regardless, video games have touched all of our lives in one way or another.

Even with their busy schedule, some celebrities also have a passion for gaming. Some actors have almost lost movie roles because of gaming, and some have even named their children after their favorite characters. These celebrities have certainly taken gaming to the next level (pun intended).

Henry Cavill

We all know Henry Cavill as Superman from Man of Steel, but did you know that a video game habit almost lost him the role? He was such a fan of World of Warcraft that he missed director Zack Snyder's phone call saying that he got the part! He is also a big fan of Skyrim, but honestly, who isn't?

Rosario Dawson

This Daredevil and Sin City star is a fan of all things Nintendo. She specifically is fond of Nintendo's main three franchises: Super Mario Bros., The Legend of Zelda, and of course Pokemon.

Mila Kunis

Like Cavill, Kunis had a major love for the fantasy MMO World of Warcraft. However, the game started to take up too much of her life, so she moved on to more casual games like Call of Duty.

Ronda Rousey

Ronda Rousey is such a huge Pokemon fan that she claims to have owned every iteration of the game since the very first. Not to mention she has invested many hours into both Pokemon Stadium and Pokemon Snap. Aside from Pokemon, she is also a fan of The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time.

Matthew Perry

According to Friends star Matthew Perry, he played so much Fallout 3 that he developed carpal tunnel. I'm not sure we can blame him though. Fallout 3 was an incredible game!

Megan Fox

If you have ever played Halo on Xbox Live, there is a slight chance that you may have played a match with Megan Fox! The Transformers actress is a big fan of the shooter game, and has even stated that other players have often made fun of her in the game. If only they knew who they were playing with.

Vin Diesel

Of course we all know that Vin Diesel is a huge fan of Dungeons and Dragons, but he also shares Henry Cavill's and Mila Kunis's obsession with World of Warcraft.

Zac Efron

When Zac and High School Musical co-star Vanessa Hudgens were dating, she bought him an Xbox 360 as a gift. He apparently spent so much time playing Halo on it that they almost broke up a lot earlier than they did.

Daniel Craig

Even suave, tough, super-spies like James Bond like to rock out from time to time. Craig is a big fan of Guitar Hero, as well as Halo.

Robin Williams

Nothing shows true dedication to video games like naming your child after your favorite characters. Take Robin Williams for example, who named his daughter Zelda after his love for The Legend of Zelda. Together, Robin and Zelda Williams filmed several promotional pieces for The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D.

You see? Video games are for everyone! If Superman, James Bond, and Ronda Rousey can all enjoy a good game, so can all of us. Video games aren't just for the "nerdy" types anymore. There are games for each and every one of us.
