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.

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.

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 )

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

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.

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.

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...

Default 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...

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.
