VGA 2009: Nolan North talks about Nolan North

Joystiq: This past Saturday brought us the Spike TV Video Game Awards and – before experiencing the litany of world exclusives that awaited us inside – we spent some time outside cruising the red carpet and talking (briefly!) to many of the game developers and talent. We squeezed them for information as fast as we could while simultaneously wishing them holiday cheer and good tidings. Yes, it was as awkward as it sounds. Here's what we learned from Nolan North.

The story is too old to be commented.

Nolan North is absolutely brilliant as Nathan Drake! He brought the character to life so well..

My fave voice actor. I even liked him in PoP, when a lot of people didn't think he fit...

DigitalAnalog3314d ago

No wonder the voice of POP was so memorable.

DarkBlood3314d ago

zeeshan3314d ago

Yeah but I played POP after I had played Uncharted and I couldn't help but think that his voice fits Nate the best!!

He was amazing in Uncharted 2. Can't wait for Uncharted 3!!!!

...think this guy needs to slowdown a little for the sake of his career. Uncharted, Assassin's Creed, PoP, Alpha Protocol, Halo ODST and I think he is even in Army of Two 40th day as Salem. Any recent blockbuster has him in it. His voice and character will soon be so oversaturated, no one will want to hire him. Except for Sony that is :)
Great voice actor though.

Actually, it's the other way around: believe it or not, he also does plenty of secondary roles, being done with very altered accents and voices (Seriously, it took me a long time to recognize his voice until I payed attention to the credits again to notice his name in Resistance: Retribution). He isn't over saturating, it's the voice directors who want him to talk like Nathan Drake, otherwise he can play any character they want him to be (yes, even a stereotypical gay dude)

Don't forget he was Sgt. Forge in Halo Wars.

I do agree that he should slow down. I mean, he probably wants to make as much money as possible, though it isn't ALL about the money, BUT if he's the main character in too many games, all the characters have the potential to sound the same.

All that said, Nathan Drake is such a charismatic character, and Nolan North did an excellent job as Drake.
