Mark Wahlberg has never played popular video game MAX PAYNE - despite starring in the big screen adaptation of the iconic computer hit.
The actor will play the game's title character in the upcoming move version due out in October (08), but won't buy the game because he has an addictive personality.
And the star insists it wouldn't be fair on his family to spend all his time in front of the computer enjoying a virtual world.
He tells People.com, "I didn't want to play because I have an addictive personality.
"I got more responsibility now than I've ever had with the kids and everything else. I don't want to be spending 14 hours on the videogame and then eight hours on the set. It's not going to work out."
