These are the Men and Women who Bring Skyrim to Life

One very valid complaint that was levelled against Elder Scrolls IV is that it often felt like there were only three people voicing the game's entire cast.

In Skyrim, for the most part, that's been fixed. And then some. Even when you get past the token celebrity voice actors, you see there's a vast, talented cast bringing the game to life.

So let's meet some of them!

i disagree, it hasn't been fixed. the actual voice actors and actresses are amazing, no doubt, but there are still far too many people with not only the same VA, but repeating the exact same lines in the exact same tone of voice. i understand that it wouldn't be feasible to hire hundreds of VAs, but could you at least attempt to change your tone of voice or accent slightly when going from character to character? and maybe switch the lines up a little? it's just kind of an immersion killer for me when two people on the opposite ends of the map deliver the exact same lines in the exact same voice.

like i said, the voice acting itself is fantastic, just give us more variety, even if it's from the same VAs.

They mention paul eiding but omit his role as Roy Campbell?

They left out Jason Marsden, who plays Sven, Gwilin, Eltrys, and a bunch of other characters. The first time I went to Riverwood, I heard the voice of Haku from Spirited Away and was like, "where is that voice coming from!?"

They also missed Claudia Christian best known (to me at least) as Ivonava from Babylon 5. Some of the best lines in that show so am pleased to have her as a sidekick.

Susan Ivanova: Who am I? I am Susan Ivanova, Commander. Daughter of Andre and Sophie Ivanov. I am the right hand of vengeance and the boot that is going to kick your sorry a** all the way back to Earth, sweetheart! I am death incarnate, and the last living thing that you will ever see. God sent me.

I like VAs, but I think one day it would be awesome to meet some of the people who truly bring TES to life: the devs.

Seems like we never get to hear from the guys in the trenches.
