Give to A Good Cause and Land A Voice Acting Role

I think it’s an undeniable fact that everybody who’s ever been a fan of video games has thought, at one point or another, “Hey, I’d sure love to be in a video game.” Well, here’s your chance.

An auction recently surfaced on eBay for a voice acting role in Saints Row 3. Now before you get all up in arms, let me just make clear that the legitimacy of the auction has been confirmed by THQ and Volition. The voice acting role was one of many items donated to the family of Ashley Ames, who died in a house fire back in July. The proceeds of the auction will be used to fund a memorial scholarship in her name.

The voice acting role may not be a very big part, but you know that you’d be more than happy to be the guy who shouts obscenities as the main character flies by in their tacky purple convertible with reckless abandon. At the time this article was written, the auction was up to the price of $510, with just over three days left on the clock.

So if you’ve always wanted to be part of a video game (which you know you have), head over to the auction page and check your piggy bank for some spare change. If you’ve got enough, you could end up in the credits of a major title and feel good about helping an underprivileged kid get an education.
