So hard to pick just one … but Manny in Grim was amazing. Some other great actor/voices: George in Broken Sword, Charlie in Df and Ghen in Riven.

I agree with Tony Plana, Robbie Benson and Jack Angel. I also enjoyed Dominic Armato as Guybrush Threepwood, Rolf Saxon as George Stobbart and Sarah Hamilton as April Ryan.

I have to give a lot of credit to Sarah Hamilton for causing me to care so much for April. I really liked Zoe's accent too in Dreamfall.

Also, I remember really liking that guy who was the voice of Beast in Beauty & The Beast....he was the voice for Prince Alexander in Kings Quest VI.

Fahrenheit, the lead character had brilliant voice acting.

Rolf Saxon as George Stobbart definitely, in fact the entire cast of Broken Sword 1, 2 & 3. Dominic Armato as Guybrush Threepwood including the rest of the cast for CofMI, the guy who plays Lewton in Discworld Noir, Eric Idle as Rincewind, Tim Curry in Gabriel Knight 1 (his voice acting in 3 sounded a tad over the top compared to the first), Mark Hamill as Mosely. I'd also agree that the voice acting in the LucasArts games are excellent, even though the guy who does the voice of Marcus Brody in FoA was laughable. :D

David Boyll as Hugh Bliss in Bright Side of the Moon.

I really like James Woods he hasnt been in too many but the ones I know are
surf's up
scarface
kingdom hearts 1&2
grand theft auto
of light and darkness
hecules

He has the perfect evil voice and I loved him in kingdom hearts and of light and darkness.

Couple of performances really stand out.

Tim Curry as Gabe, Dominic Armato as Guybrush, Sarah Hamilton as April Ryan and Jan Rabson as Larry Laffer.

Almost every voice over in Curse of Monkey Island is amazingly well performed. Also love the voice overs in Quest for Glory 4 and King's Quest 6. Same goes for Sanitarium and Toonstruck.

Worst voice over: Fable (the adventure game that is :) )

Nina and Max from Secret files: Tunguska and all the characters from all Nancy Drew games.

My favorite is Manny in Grim Fandango. Love him and the game.

Squinky 11-08-2007 11:28 AM

Lewton in Discworld Noir.

I thought Charity James as Grace (in GK3) was really impressive, and perfectly managed to convey the subtleties of her character.

SeaTurtle 11-10-2007 07:53 AM

I agree with everyone who has said the cast of COMI. I also think that everyone from Grim Fandango did a fantastic job, especially Paula Killen who voiced Olivia.

I know! If Rolf ever quit as George, the Broken Sword series would be done for.

QFG 11-10-2007 08:18 AM

Manny in Grim Fandango
Guybrush in MI ... Murray in MI ... actually, almost all of MI
The narrator (John Rhys-Davis) in QFG4
The narrator (Gary ... something) in the Space Quest games - spectacular!!
The various voices in Dark Fall were very well done.
I'm sure there are more, but I'm blanking.

Thesaya 11-10-2007 01:26 PM

I love that the actor who play Hercule Poirot in the tv series/movies does the voice acting for him in Murder on the Orient express... Then ofcourse, MI, all tim Currys voice acting and oh, too many to think of...

Voice actors
 
Does anyone know who did the voice for Nina in Secret Files: Tunguska in the US release?

She sounds so familiar to me and I can't help but wonder where I've heard that voice before. It almost sounds like Mission Vao (Cat Taber) from KOTOR but I can't be certain.

Anyone know where to find the US voice cast? :)

Virtually yours...

Too bad i can´t get the damn game to work on Windows XP.:frusty: :shifty:

Christopher Walken in Ripper, that damn fine actor in that damn fine game, is damn horrible. Overacted, he never knows how to approach the character, so he is just gesticulating a lot. One of the worse acting ever seen in videogames by a professional actor. And it's funny, because the main character, which is not he best well-known of all the cast, does a great job.

My favourite voice-acting may be in Toonstruck. The whole of it.

I agree. Man, that was some amazing stuff. Usually you get one or two that don't quite fit, or aren't the best, but CMI was perfect voice work!

Welcome to AG mXm. :)

I looked around and I can't find it. I'm not sure why it's such a secret. :P
