Thumbpad: The Best voice actors in Video Games

Production value in games is more relevant than ever. With budgets to rival Hollywood, it is becoming more common for titles to receive star treatment and include some great voice talent.

Publishers understand the importance of great voice acting and the importance it has in the potential to make or break a great game. Over the years there have been some superb performances that have helped propel games to another level.

Let's take a look at some of the vocal talent that has helped pioneer the industry as we know it. Here is my top 3 for Best Voice Actors in Video Games. (Batman: Arkham City, Culture, Gears of War 3, Industry, John Di Maggio, Mark Hamill, Nolan North, Thumbpad, Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception)

Am I the only one tired of hearing Nolan North everywhere? He should just stick with the UC series.

How many games have you heard him in?
He's done more games with completely unrecognizable voices than games with his normal voice.

On another note:
Nolan North will always be Nate, except when modifying his voice.
Mark Hamill is a better Joker than Luke.
And John DiMaggio will always be Bender :)
