Well, to be fair, Hayter's not done much beyond Solid Snake/Big Boss. He's one of the greats, but this article also takes quantity of work into account.

And that really does make Troy Baker top of the list. I mean, geez, he was in pretty much every GOTY candidate of last year. And the author said he has a pretty samey voice?! HE VOICED THE GODDAMN JOKER!!

Joker and Joel couldn't be further from each other.

Then he kills it when doing "Troy voice" in inFamous.

While I don't have a favorite, he is without a doubt one of the most talented. With quite an impressive range, to boot.

His voice and even personality as Delsin was basically identical to the leader of the Saints in SR3 and 4.

David Hayter was Lupin III, and a great one at that. Not to knock on Sonny Strait who was in the respectable Funimation dub, but Hayter was fantastic as Lupin.

Hayter is great, however, he is not top tier voice actor great. Nolan North and Troy Baker are truly talented, and we can see with all the characters they voiced.

Did you not play the cel shaded Prince of Persia? The prince was Drake, no different style, no different voice, not even his mannerisms differed. It was the worst thing about that otherwise good game.

GameSpawn998d ago

More importantly no Steve Blum.

Granted Blum's foray into gaming isn't as big as he is in animation, but still he's a damn good and noticeable voice.

Over 500 acting credits (multiple voices in some credits - best known as Spike from Bebop and Tom from Toonami):

The five they have chosen are pretty popular voice actors, but to choose just 5 people is a tough task without leaving out a few other gems. They should have bolstered the list up to 10 people.

MysticStrummer998d ago

I forget his name, but the guy who does Gordon Freeman is an amazing voice actor. I hope they bring him back for the next one.

LarVanian998d ago

I think the actor who voiced Claude in GTA3 is much better.

ThichQuangDuck998d ago

Wanderer in Shadow Of The Colossus is better

MysticStrummer998d ago

Yes all people with great range. Tough to choose a favorite.

randomass171998d ago

Link's had a pretty great collection of voices. The guy in the NES games deserves a medal for his work. :D

Agent2009998d ago

Claude in GTA3 is definitely my fav, much better than Troy Baker.

Dameon Clarke, the dude who voiced Handsome Jack in Borderlands. Great voice actor.
