NowGamer: "I was playing Mass Effect 2 yesterday and I met a minor character whose voice I immediately recognised, but couldn’t place. “I know I’ve heard that voice tons of times before, “ I thought, “But I can’t think where...""
Nolan North is everywhere, and while some gamers complain about that, the reason is simple: He's a good voice actor. Rather have him than some half-assed voice actor who simply isn't up to the grade.
Good voice actors are generally fairly anonymous IMO, whereas bad voice actors can drag a game down
Uncharted and Prince of Persia - Nola North So same voice :D
Don't forget Desmond from Assassins creed.
It's hard to play a game with Nolan North in it and not think "it's Nate!" :P
Didn't he also do the voice of the sidekick at the start of Singularity?
Another good voice actor is the dude who did Cole's voice in infamous 1. He really captured the guy's darkness. I wish they could bring back this voice.
Solid snake - david hayter. Bubbles?
cuz u mentioned a ps3 character, you expect bubbles? i disagreed with you just cuz u asked for bubbles. so maybe you are lying thru ur teeth, just to get bubbles from the ps3 fans lol fess up, which xbox 360 character do you think has the best voice? lol
At above - would mario be a better answer. Look at my history and try and tell me which console I favor. Smarty smart pants. I ask for bubbles because I like bubbles. Who doesn't like bubbles?
Yea he's good. But he's not the most prolific. He's been trying to build his resume to the status of Steven Blum's. Now Steven Blum is prolific. Both in games and anime. Compare the resume's. http://en.wikipedia.org/wik... http://en.wikipedia.org/wik...
Lol Nolan North is even in MGS4 as one of the PMC soldiers
Thank You! Now people can stop complaining Nolan North is in everything. I wish he was in everything, I love Nolan North.
Nothing on David Hayter? But he's a champ!
Only been in, I think, 14 games.
Still a champ bro.
Article's still about the most prolific actors, not the most champ-est.
Snakes voice is just too awesome... welldone David Hayter.
My point is complete. and by none other than Leonidas
Nolan North is great, don't get me wrong, but I'm really liking what Malcolm McDowell is doing in Killzone 3. He fits the part perfectly. He also had a small but great part in God of War 3 (old guy hanging in the labrynth)
Brian Cox was awesome as Visari. McDowell has big shoes to replace.
@Jony_dols Brian Cox is awesome in most everything he does. I'll always think of him as the Scotsman he played in Braveheart (his best role, IMHO). "I'm your uncle, Argyle"
Malcolm will be a welcome addition - they could do a lot with his character. Sidebar: Speaking of God of War, Linda Hunt would absolutely be my nomination for Most Prolific Narrator. Masterful throughout the entire series.
Steve blum is in everything
I think he has a annoying voice when he does dempsey in [email protected] and black ops.
He's pretty much the Samuel L. Jackson of voice acting.
Blums a filthy whore, He'd sell his oral skills to his own mother to fund his whoreise ways.
Nolan North. That's because he's so good.
Mark Hamill as The Joker in Batman: Arkham Asylum is pretty cool as well.
Yeah, but Mark Hamill does WAY more stuff outside of video games than he does in them.
Yeah like Star Wars, but thats 30 something years ago
Steve Blum... erm, who?
You may know him better as Spike Spiegel and Mugen from Cowboy Bebop and Samurai Champloo.
What character does he play in ME2? I'm playing ME2 again currently. The female Shepard is a very nice actress as well.
who, steve blum? he played grunt.
So they still use a picture of Uncharted even though its not Nolan North...
Throwing you off the scent. And who'd recognise any of the 219 characters Steve Blum has played anyway? Alright, expect maybe two of them.
Steven Blum is a voice acting GOD. A lot of people would probably recognize him as Wolverine from various games, especially the first Marvel: Ultimate Alliance.
I just realized Steven Blum is Spike from Cowboy Bebop. He made dub voices preferable in an anime which is insanely rare. I agree that he is a VO god. Over the past few years Johnny Yong Bosch has been getting popular, I really like his voice. He played Nero in DMC4.
DAVID HAYTER. PERIOD. Anybody who says otherwise is a Hayter, so it's a WIN/WIN. ^_^
David Hayter only voice acts in one video game series idiot, how does that make him the most prolific voice actor in video games?
That scientists guy in ME2 sounded a lot like Dr.Kleiner... That's the only thing I recognized in that game. =/
Robin Atkin Downes Phil La Marr These are 2 of my favorite voice actors.
TC Carson and Nolan North, household names right there, well, in the PS3 world anyway.
i really like the guy who done kain in the legacy of kain games and was also loghain in dragons age, he has an awesome almost imperial voice.
Claudia black as Morrigan in DAO,Hamil in Batman and Thane's voice actor in ME2.
Lulz @ people thinking the word "prolific" = "good".
Micheal Ironside, great job in Splinter Cell. Also John Dimaggio who voices Bender the robot in Futurama as well as Marcus Fenix in Gears. He has been in a ton of games aside from Gears as well.
lol yeah solid snake davaid hayter ... and also kratos -T.C CARSON watever his name is
Phil Lamarr if you don't know who that is get out of here
it's funny the way his head got blown up in pulp fiction.
Patrick Warburton does a few
I dont even need to say it, as im sure most will agree. Hell even the picture for the article agrees with me. xD
I'll tell you. My ass, because does a very Prolific voice when i fart.
