The worst voice acting you'll ever hear on a PlayStation console

PSU.com writes:

"Still, the videogames industry has played host to some right stinkers in terms of voice acting, and it’s these audio atrocities we’ve decided to ‘honour’ in our latest feature. Bad acting isn’t just negated to Sony platforms of course, but hey, we’re a PlayStation site, so what did you expect? With that said, sit back and join us now as we show you the worst voice acting you’ll ever here on a Sony format." (Castlevania: Symphony of the Night, Chaos Wars , Final Fantasy X, Heavy Rain , PS Vita, PS2, PS3, PSP, Resident Evil: Director's Cut, Retro)

I dunno about them but Socom Special Forces (UK voices) were god awful. The team sounded awful.
PoSTedUP  +   1286d ago
they sounded like mercenaries from the UK...

and SO3:TTEOT had some pretty bad voice acting too.

Sonic Adventure for sure, my 4 year old daughter has it on (she is now) so i tend to hear a lot of it, it is very bad

Heavy Rain? not so sure about that, i dont mind Jaydens voice personally
Ser  +   1286d ago
Oh, man...Sonic Adventure's voice acting is something else. lol

I agree on Jayden's voice. I appreciate his "Nahman" accent.

I would hate to play Resident Evil with no voice acting, it gave its charm.

I remember when I was playing resident evil 2 back in the day. My friend Paul and Chris were over and they both had n64 and they would bust my balls so hard about how bad the voice acting was. They were literally laughing histarically during the scene when Leon goes into the gun shop and that guy pulls a gun on him. "Don't shoot, I'm a human!". HA I loved it though.

You know what gets me, "Where's Barry ?", " I don't know he is probably...." *Jill gasp*

My favorites: "What is this!? Wow! What a mansion!"
"Hope this is not Chris' blood"
And the famous "You were almost a Jill sandwich!"

lol.. I love the older resident evils.

One of my favorite scenes was one of the endings with the live-action actors...

FFX and star Ocean ? Did that guy even play jrpgs ? Someone has never touched games like Shining Force Neo on ps2 . Horrible on all accounts already , then comes the awful english voices

And that's only one of countless badly dubbed jrpgs of the era

FFX had awesome voice acting!
SpaceFox  +   1285d ago
This, honestly the only bad part of its voice acting was the one laughing scene. But even that was bad on purpose, the goal was for it to sound forced. They did that pretty well.

I just fell in love with the characters and I dont think I would have without the voice acting.

this generation i'd have to give it to bayonetta that game made me wanna tear my ears off lol, but i've heard worst voice acting than the games he listed here.

I agree listening to her and her friends talk made me want to mute the television. The only other game that made me want to do that was *braces for disagrees* was Gears of War. It has awful voice acting.The dialogue was laughable at best. And what made it worse were people going about that guy finding his wife and having to kill her was the the most emotion and moving scene they ever saw in gaming. Really? Never saw such a wooden performance in my life. I figure they must be joking.
TBM  +   1286d ago
i agree 100% even though i love the series the voice acting was subpar imo, especially part 2 if i had to hear Dom whine about his wife one more time id of lost it. also there was nothing emotional about the gears series when Dom died i cheered, and laughed at how they tried to make marcus seem at broken up lol.

You guys ever play Disruptor? It was made by Insomniac. It was a great ps1 era fps. It had live action cut scenes that were so cheesy. The game was a lot of fun though. The stuff they did in that game was really ahead of the curve for a fps. Actually I think bioshock borrowed a little from that game with the melee upgrades.

The new game Expendables 2 is preeettty bad.
Tonester925  +   1285d ago
I played it yesterday and was like "this is so terrible that it's not even funny"

It's like an arcade game or something

I used to be a voice actor, you know. I did the voice of Gordon Freeman for about half a second. I went into the voice actors booth, sat down, put on headphones and opened my mouth to talk.
The voice director just screamed "you're crap, get out!!".
And that's how my voice acting career ended.
THE END.

That's annoying, not bad. There IS a difference.

FFX didn't have bad voice acting, either. Dunno what this guy was talking about.
Greyslash  +   1286d ago
This isn't a Playstation game, but it's on Xbox 360 and PC, Raven Squad has THE WORST voice acting I've ever heard. I'm playing through it now and just want to die every time anyone talks.
ado908  +   1286d ago
I always believed the characters in Haze had the worst voice acting. "What was that noise?" "Just animal, JUST AN ANIMAL!" Lol like what kind of script is that?
Greyslash  +   1286d ago
That was done to show how the drugs fucked up your teamates. The Voice acting in HAZE was amazing, that whole game was great, but people expected Halo, not a war game where there was actually a message and plot behind it. :/

Vanille was so bad everytime she would talk i would mute my tv.
CanadianTurtle  +   1285d ago
I know this isn't a PS1 game but, I think Vanielle from Final Fantasy 13 was the worst voice acting in the history of gaming. I stopped playing the game all together just because of her annoyance. Thats how bad it was, and I'm a hardcore FF player.

I don't expect a war game that is supposed to have some realism to try and have professional voice acting. As long as it sounds like most people in the Army then it is fine.

Don't know why some people in the comments think Socom needs professional voice acting.
