The SWANTONMASTER Team goes over The Top 5 voices in gaming
My favorite voice actor is Steven Blum. He's been in over 200 anime/games etc. I really dont think the guy gets enough recognition. Sure he does a lotta small roles but he does some pretty good ones too. http://en.wikipedia.org/wik...
oo Orichamaru , that voice was creepy
well you gotta admit he's contributed alotta good voice acting to both games and anime.
Nolan is in everything
Steven Blum is in everything else. Ace Combat, COD, Socom, Batman Arkham, FF7, and tons more. I've compared Steven's and Nolan's records and Nolan's is impressive. But Steven's been more places and had more memorable roles.
Because he is awesome lol, surprised Hayter isn't in a lot
@oliverasadi That's because Hayter is more of a screenplay writer than an actor or voice actor these days.
Was it Nolan in Prince of Persia. That voice acting was the worst thing about that game. Maybe bad casting but it was terrible none the less.
John Di Maggio! Not for his work on gears as marcus, but because he did that AND Bender, The worlds greatest robot.
Rofl yea Bender is hilariously awesome, cant wait for the new episodes i think they said it was coming back this month!!!
Yeah man! And comedy central this time too, so its 100% less likely to be canceled. I can't wait!
There appears to be a lack of Heavenly Sword in this article... why do people forget about this game, I honestly don't know ...
but only a few of them stand out as really memorable... Jennifer Hale on the other hand, she should be on (and near the top) of this list. She is a much better Shepard in Mass Effect than the guy... plus is great as Naomi in Metal Gear, Samus in Metroid Prime, and Bastila Shan in KOTOR.
I'd love Samuel L Jackson to take more of a plunge into voice acting in games, he's got such a cool voice, he was great in San Andreas.
shit....he was Tenpenny? I never knew lol.
I'll second Steven Blum (he's the lead in Epic's new game, Bulletstorm!) but I have to ask, where's Mark Hamill? Is there a more respected voice in gaming (other than perhaps Nolan). I mean, everyone knows his incredible work as the joker, but he's been in like 30 videogames as huge roles (not minor ones), changing his voice and just doing an all around incredible job, literally making his roles memorable just from the quality of his voice work! http://en.wikipedia.org/wik...
The guy's very talented, it's quite surpising the amount of voice work he's done. After Star Wars you'd be forgiven to think he's not been that successful, but he's been very busy.
Fun fact: the actor who voices Mr. Krabs also voices Hades from God of War 3 lol. Mr. Krabs to spongebob: "Your soul is mine!"
Yea he actually does a ton of voices especially for kids shows, and if anyone has seen the series Carnivale he is the Demon preist if u haven't seen Carnivale check it out, its an amazing HBO series
Did you know he was the extremist head prison guard in the movie, Shawshank Redemption.
Nice list but i would change out 4 and 5, like what ExgamerLegends2 said, steve blum needs some recognition
david hayter (solid snake) nolan (nathan drake) T.C. carson (Kratos) Niko Bellic (Niko Bellic) Mark hamil (The Joker)
Oh yeah! Kratos is awesome! Just like Arnold Schwarzenegger! All their lines are awesome!
What about Jack Black? Didn't he even win an award for perfectly portraying a character that was modeled after Jack Black?
Rolf Saxon, who has provided the voice of George Stobbart in every Broken Sword game. The exquisite script-writing certainly helps, but Saxon just completely inhabits that character, he's perfect to the point that I think of no one else who could be more suitable to portray the wise-cracking, instantly likeable American. Please Charles Cecil, give us another Broken Sword soon so that I may bathe in his delightful tones once more!
Actually Reuben Langdon did not do the Opening of DMC 3. He said in an interview that he was so jetlag from arriving in Japan or Los Angeles that he couldn't do the opening and that another stuntman had to do the Opening. But other then that Reuben motion captured everything else...except the Cerebus Nunchuck scene. I think either Dan Southworth (voice and motion capture actor for Vergil) did the nunchuck scene or another stuntman did.
One of the coolest characters in gaming imo, Leon S. Kennedy's voice actor Paul Mercier deserves some recognition. he also is the voice of the merchant, who everyone loves
Johhny Yong Bosch Nolan North David Hayter Phil Lamarr Steve Blum Yuri Lowenthal These are my 6 guesses.
What about Robin Atkin Downes? WHAT ABOUT ROBIN ATKIN DOWNES?
The voice of Raziel.
Kratos is black? Never would have picked that.
