For some reason I'm totally not surprised that Simon Pegg likes video games. I mean, why wouldn't he? During a recent Ask Me Anything on Reddit he was asked for his favourite video game of all time. He made a good choice.
Basically, Simon Pegg is most likely scanning every piece of Valve news that comes out of the studio, piecing together incredible conspiracy theories before typing the words "Half-Life 3 confirmed" on some forum somewhere.
Note: Simon Pegg is probably not doing that.
His answer in full:
My favourite game of all time is probably Half Life 2. And I love love LOVE the look of the new Alien game, which is called Alien: Isolation.
So there's another little tidbit -- Simon Pegg is also looking forward to Alien: Isolation.
Guys. He's JUST LIKE US!
(Alright, you now have permission to talk about how much I look like Simon Pegg.)
