GamingLives.com talks about voice acting in games and the lack of effort that seems to go into them sometimes.
Tenpenny in Fallout 3 is supposed to be a British guy, but he doesn't have a British accent. It isn't even a bad British accent, he just doesn't have one. I think one of the major reasons some voice acting in video games gets such praise when it really isn't that good (FemShep), is because so much video game voice acting is mediocre. There are a lot of good VAs, but most of them have a lot of experience in either animation or previous gen games, and often they get supporting roles in games rather than top billing (Steve Blum).
