Arnold Schwarzenegger might have had a soft side for Nintendo games

The Nintendo fans would be amazed to know that the Terminator star is a gaming fan. In the above video, the conversation about video games starts with Arnold talking about reprising his role as Dutch in the Predator series. The Predator series returned in 2020 as a video game called the Predator: Hunting Grounds. Here is what Arnold had to say when asked about returning to the franchise:

“The other day, Predator came on, and I said to my girlfriend, ‘Let’s watch the beginning.’ And we ended up watching the whole thing because it still held up today. Other movies don’t hold up, but movies like Predator and the first Terminator really hold up, and it was really fun to watch…”

He further added, “Interesting enough, a week later I was asked to do some voice-over for a video game that is coming out about Predator. So it was great that I watched it to get back in that mood again to do the voice-over.”

After this, we get to see an amazing compilation of Arnold giving hilarious voiceovers to games like Tetris, Super Mario Bros., and Animal Crossing. It seems like the Terminator does have some niché for gaming, particularly for the Nintendo classics.
