The Worst Accents In Gaming Ever

Megabits of Gaming writes: "Ever since Mario added his first unnecessary vowel to the end of a word, the scripts and voice actors of the gaming world have revelled in the ability to trot out dialogue and deliveries that would have performers in any other industry up in front of a tribunal, or at least hung out to dry in the court of public opinion. In gaming, however, they just keep on coming, and they range from those that are inappropriately hilarious, to those that are just inappropriate full stop. Here is our pick of some of the worst accents ever to bless the gaming world" (Culture, Dead Island, Halo, PS3, The Saboteur, Xbox 360)

"My name is Bolo Santosi"(in a really harsh, manish voice). That was a terrible attempt at an accent, it's like they just picked someone of the street and said attempt the weirdest accent you can think of.

I also reckon that Vanille from FFXIII could be put in this list.

Most of the accents in Just Cause 2 were ridiculous. But it was supposed to be a game that wasn't taken too seriously so it didn't really matter too much.

What about Easten European accents in GTA IV? And the French guys in The Saboteur was also funny.

Just Cause 2 has legendary bad acting, and I love it.

The weird thing about Vanille is, her voice actress is actually Australian. So it's strange that her accent kept changing throughout the game. I can't help but wonder what the voice director was telling her to do, because her natural voice sounds far better. :/

Don't even get me started on Dead Island's Australian accents. Would it have been that difficult to hire actual Australians to do the voices? They were downright atrocious. You'd think that in this day-and-age of gaming, voice acting that bad wouldn't be seen anymore.

Dead Island was really funny with those bad accents. Game was good tho

As an Australian I couldn't stand it. I obviously barely notice the Australian accent because its where I've lived my whole life, but it is so thick that it is just irritating in Dead Island, indeed it isn't a true Aussie accent.

Absolutely everyone in Fable II and III except Stephen Fry. Everyone! As a Brit, it pisses me off that every NPC has a ludicrous stereotypical regional accent - and one that's horribly forced at that.

Brit accents are either Mary poppins or gangster... it sounds rubbish
