OMG Jikla you have it right on the money, Solid Snake is the toughest voice ever.....Bubbles for you!

Agree'd they did forget about Snake's voice, I wonder why they left him off the list, guess he's not famous enough in the hollywood world?

Cyrus3654666d ago

Some fairly big names lending their voices to games...I wonder how much they get paid for the voice gigs.

I'm sorry, but where the hell is Mike Patton in all of this?

The guy did Darkness & Minions in The Darkness, the evil computer piece in Portal, and is slated to do most of the zombie VO's in Left 4 Dead.

What a rip off, I can't believe he didn't make it.

Cyrus3654666d ago

True, How could they forget about Sam Jackson, but I guess he hasn't voiced in any other games?
