Stop Gaming Voice Actor Nolan North?

Uncharted, Prince of Persia, Halo, Alpha Protocol, Assassin's Creed, Madworld, Dragonage, Call of Duty, Gears of War, God of War, Metal Gear Solid, Lost Odyssey, Lost Planet, Army of Two, Dark Void, Final Fantasy, Shadow Complex...the list continues.

Yeah, I've been hearing a lot of him recently! There are a lot of talented voice actors that I'd rather see get some work :)

Aha. So this is why I keep hearing the same guy in all these games... haha

he's hurting for money or he's no longer hurting for money. But all those games were mainly big sellers. So money shouldn't be an issue for him now.

There are a lot of good voice actors North is very good but he needs to vary his voice and not use the Drake one over and over. He did Sigmund in the lastest Ratchet and Clank game.

He was also in the Saboteur but I didn't recognise the voice and was surprised he was in it.
