Best Video Game Voice Actors Of All Time

True talent and experience make the best video game voice actors stand out among the hordes. Anyone who can’t tell the difference between a professional video game voice actor and the programmer’s family needs to get their ears checked immediately. Choosing the best voice actors is no trivial undertaking, but here you can find a list without Nolan North. One trick ponies not allowed. (Christopher Robin Miller, Ellen McLain, God of War, Half-Life 2, Jennifer Hale, Mass Effect 2, Max Payne, Nintendo DS, PC, Portal 2, Professor Layton VS Phoenix Wright, PS3, Terrance Carson, Xbox 360)

The entire cast of Heavenly Sword was brilliant. That game has some of the best cinematic cutscenes in gaming. I love Ninja Theory's writers too. Brilliant. Even Enslaved had phenomenal voice acting. That is one thing they do almost perfectly.

No Ray Liotta or Gary Busey from GTA Vice City? Samuel L Jackson and James Woods in San Andreas? What about David Hayter from MGS? Captian Picard in Oblivion? Brian Cox in Killzone 2? Steven Fry in LBP? NOLAN FREAKING NORTH?!

This list needs more than a top 5. 5 doesnt do it justice at all.

Also Terrence Carson has an issue with warming up his voice. At the beginning of every GOW games, he sounds very flat but by the end he sounds really good and theatric. Look at the quote "ZEUS! I bring the end of Olympus" at the end of GOW2 and the beginning of GOW3 for proof.

Simon Templeman is an incredible voice actor. It's such a shame he is so underrated.

Lack of Nolan north is disturbing the man has done so much and so many different voice's. Didnt know playing the voices of N.gin(crash) all 3 corrupted cores(portal 2) Sigmund(R&C CIT) were all the same. Think screen junkies should do some research before they call people 1 trick pony's.

Quite frankly nobody beats malcolm mcdowell who has more acting credits than probably any other brit ever.

What's with all this female shepard praise all of a sudden. She's a good voice actor but not as good as someone like Nolan North.

Really....no mention of Nolan North, Emily Rose or Richard McGonagle, they're the best voice actors I've heard in a video game. So believable.

I've been asking the same question for awhile now. She was good as Naomi in the MGS games, but I think the voice acting for Shepard was sub-par no matter what gender you chose. EDI displayed more emotion in her voice than either Shepard ever did.

Mark Hamill is one of my favorites.
He does the Joker perfectly. He has done so many other titles also, I lost count. All done fantastic.
