Where Are All The British Games?

IGN:

Has the UK lost its national video game identity?

Japan is known for its quirky, offbeat games and a devotion to the role-playing game. America, the pioneer, has a predilection for big action games with plenty of gunplay. This might be a simplification, but these countries have a style and way of doing things that gamers feel they can recognise. So what about the UK? Do we have a distinctive identity in the games we produce, and the games we like to play?

Good article, I live in the UK but personally all the over-the-top British accents in games/movies/tv do my head in, I'd take an american game any day over Lara's 'Oh my fiddle sticks, cup of tea' any day.

Lara Croft's accent isn't "over-the-top" especially considering the fact that her voice actresses have all been native English.

I know what you mean but Lara croft was a bad example.
Im gonna get some stick for saying this but honestly the voice acting in Xenoblade Chronicles has awful British accents.You might not recognise it if your not a Brit but it sounds so forced and awkward. Now Balthier from FFXII has an awesome British voice actor (you can easily tell the difference)

Lara is suppossed to be posh and speak the Queen's English without regional dialects because shes rich. Do you expect her to be a Brummy?

Stuart57562390d ago

I know she's 'supposed' to speak the queens english, that's the problem for me, I don't like it, my comment reflected my own opinion, Nolan Norths Drake voice is much preferred by myself, and don't get me started on Fable.

I love British accents! I guess that's why I love the Fable series so much.
