NowGamer: Slow news day? Hell yeah!But thank the lord for that. Otherwise how would we be able to bring you such irrelevant silliness as this? Game heroes’ rumbling vocals are a point of ridicule at NowGamer. So here's the ten worst offenders...
There are two many generic, gruff voices in gaming now. Every bald, generic space marine has one :( Though, some of the voice acting on the list is great. David Hayter and Vin Diesil for example :)
Nathan Drake has an awesome voice.
"Riddick......Sounds like: A whale belching into a cave" "Solid Snake...Sounds like: Corn Flakes in a jet engine" "Alex Mercer...Sounds like: Jeffrey Dahmer" "Chris Redfield...Sounds like: Darth Vader farting in a church" LOL, funny article. . EDIT: @the comments about Kratos and Hades The God of War characters don't sound like they're straining themselves. Terrence 'T.C.' Carson and Clancy Brown are good voice actors.
where is Kratos ?
Seriously! If you have a great surround sound system like me then you'll feel Hades Bass throughout your entire house. It's so hypnotic & surreal. Check it out. I haven't read the list because I don't give any of these sites hits but if hades isn't like # 1 or even there it's a failure of the highest order. WHAT?!? Hades Isnt the HERO? Thats news to me.
Because like the standfirst says, Hades is the 'Hero' of a videogame. You may not want to visit the site, but you might at least read the one sentence which runs the description. Or can you actually not read past the headline?
Worst top ten list ever! *EDIT* They don't even have audio examples to listen to.
You'd see it's light-hearted and very FUNNY. Dang, some people are just too serious.
Dead now, God rest his soul. But that dude was packing some pipes! He voiced the Elder God in the Soul Reaver series for those that remember.
I hate when top ten lists start with #1. once I see number one, who cares what # 10 is. Is that just me?
Although he was a one-time character, Benjamin King from Saint's Row has an incredibly deep voice. Of course, the voice of King is none of than Michael Clarke Duncan.
Of all the top 10 lists this is just as silly as the top 10 beards lol
Son, I am disappoint.
Kratos really does deserve to be on the list... Marcus Fenix sounds like an 45 year old Lesbian smoker..
Great article. LMAO! :-) I also question why Kratos didn't make the list. Michael Ironside needs to be bumped up a little too... I agree with most of the other choices. Its entirely subjective, regardless.
I must be one of the few people that likes Vin diesel's voice? why? because he actually SPEAKS like that, he doesn't strain his voice like other voice actors. some games insist on having a guy who sounds like Chris Tucker in real life do a deep "manly" voice and it comes off as head scratching hilarity.
Snakes voice isn't deep, it's just raspy and fake. Chris's voice isn't either. Take those out and throw in Lambert and Sam Fisher from Splinter Cell, those are natural deep bassists.
Sam Fisher is in there at number 8. Someone didn't read all the way down. Maybe a good thing to do before posting comments.
