Voice Acting and Zelda

ZD writes: Voice acting in Zelda. It’s one of the most heated debates in the series today, and it has been for quite some time. Many fans are opposed to seeing voice acting in the series, some even to the point of being vehemently resistant to it, convinced that it wouldn’t work no matter what. I can’t do anything to change someone’s mind if it’s made up, but I urge those of you that have read this far to read the rest of the article and take consideration to my points.

Music and MTV.

I am cool with this as long as Link stays mute. Kinda like what Naughty Dog did with Jak in Jak and Daxter.

seriously i think zelda games needs some decent voice acting, and skyward sword proved that.

they focused on the relationship between zelda and link but without voice acting you dont quite feel the connection.

Sure, why not. Casting Link? No problem. They can take the Valve approach and not write so much as a single line for their main character while nobody else shuts up for so much as 3 seconds.

Before LoZ:SS I would have agreed.

Now, I don't care, I think Nintendo could make voice acting work, but it is not necessary.

A pitfall of voice acting is bad casting. Either the words suck, the voice sucks, or the acting.
At least the LoZ:SS way allowed any imperfection to be filled in with my own expectation of the characters and human emotion.

Besides the model animations (director blockings) have all been very well done.
