10 Awesome Games With Terrible Voice Acting

Thankfully these days, we mostly find ourselves applauding games for how realistic and cinematic their voice acting tends to be, but just a few short years ago, this really was not the case at all. We weren’t always blessed with the likes of David Hayter delivering steely, wholly believable performances that made us totally buy into their characters; no, once upon a time, we had to deal with the horribly stifled performances that populate this list (though a few of them are, embarrassingly, from recent games). The only plus, then, is that in some instances it can enhance the game’s iconic status, as with Resident Evil (pictured above), and somewhat accentuate its B-movie-inspired tone, even if completely by accident.

Whether we’re able to glean some humour from it or not, here are 10 awesome games with terrible voice acting. (Baten Kaitos Origins, Castle Shikigami 2, Castlevania: Symphony of the Night, Deus Ex, Heavy Rain , Nintendo DS, PS3, PSP, Resident Evil, Shenmue, Sonic Adventure, The House of the Dead 2, Time Crisis, Wii, Xbox 360)

Heavy Rain's voice acting wasn't terrible... It wasn't the best, but it wasn't terrible. :\

Heavy rain wasn't bad and where is ff 10 it was unbearable watching and listening though I suppose that wasn't the acting.

Also Connors voice actor isnt bad but the character is.
