I was just playing “Grand Theft Auto: Vice City” stories and I’m at the very end of the game, I have 5 more missions left of it. Phil Collins is an animated character in the videogame and I was thinking if the voice overs of Phil Collins was really done by him.
So I went googling some research information to see if it was done by him.
To my surprise, Phil Collins the man himself is the one doing the voice over playing himself in “Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories” videogame.
Here’s an old news story about it before the game even came out back in 2006, it was first released for the Playstation 2, I believe.
It is confirmed that Phil Collins is the first celebrity to appear in a videogame to play himself. In “GTA: Vice City Stories”, you have to save Phil’s life from getting killed by the mob, it happens in the missions “In the Air Tonight” part 1 and 2 in the videogame.
It is a great videogame. I’m also looking forward to playing “Grand Theft Auto IV” when it comes out to the PS3 on April 28th.
