Scottish actor James McAvoy is no stranger to the world of video games. The person recognized in the geek community for playing the young version of Professor Charles Xavier in the X-Men franchise on the big screen recently showed off his voice in the game “Twelve Minutes” for PC and Xbox.
McAvoy seems to have some affinity for titles like “Call of Duty: Warzone”, although he asserts that there has been a period of nearly ten years that he has been away from them, due to “the serious obsession he introduced with ‘The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion'” Which apparently ended up destroying the record in order to avoid continuing its operation.

In an interview McAvoy gave to Forbes about the release of “Twelve Minutes,” the actor recalled his obsession with the game released in 2007, which developed during the filming of “Becoming Jane.” “My partner at the time bought me an Xbox 360 and “The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion.” It was the kind of game I always loved when I was a kid, RPGs, Zelda, Secret of Mana and all that kind of games. I love role-playing games wonderful.”
James McAvoy admits there came a point when he fell asleep late at night and woke up too early to continue playing Oblivion. “And I’d stay up until four in the morning just to play Oblivion.” Then I thought, “This game is sending me into oblivion,” the actor commented.

Things came to a head when one night McAvoy stayed up until 5:35 a.m. to hear a car horn waiting outside at 5:45 a.m. That’s where he thought of sending some messages to the case. “So I got up, took the disc from the Xbox 360, and turned on the gas and stove. I put the log in there and watched it almost melt. And I thought, ‘Okay, we’re done, never.'”
Fortunately, James McAvoy’s relationship with video games has fallen off a bit. In “Twelve Minutes,” he shares credits with Daisy Ridley and Willem Dafoe. In this title, the player has to experience the same 12-minute time loop over and over until they can solve the puzzle in the apartment building where the hero lives. It’s available on PC, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S.
