Video games have been speaking to us ever since 1980, when arcade and Atari titles like Bezerk began synthesizing robotic voices – hashing out grainy one-liners of instruction and inspiration. These audio endeavors soon materialized into real-life voice acting, and before long extended dialogue sequences were a presentational staple, cinematic cutscenes were commonplace, and riveting characters were uttering riveting speeches and monologues.

Which moments made our top 5? Read on to find out. (BioShock, Gears of War 2, Killzone 2, Mass Effect, Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots, PC, PS3, Wii, Xbox 360)
