Day 26 – Best voice acting
When thinking about this category, it became apparent that the most important feature for me was that the voice acting/story was something I actually wanted to listen too. It really didn’t end up mattering how awesome the performance was if it was linked to a story that I just wanted to skip over every single time.
But finding a game that had voice acting and a story I wanted to listen to, that didn’t make me cringe every time some new bit started and that I didn’t try to skip it as soon as possible, was rather challenging. In the end, all the games that topped my list were RTSs.
Why RTSs? Well, they tend to be low on story or monologues, but still have a lot of nifty snippets of brilliant voice acting.
Thus my choice for best voice acting is WarCraft 2. I actually spent extra time clicking on all my little units just to see what they would say because they said some hilarious stuff. ‘Work work’, best line ever, but then I’m easily amused. =)
