  • Uncharted 2 was arguably the best voice acting I have ever heard in a game.

    I have to agree, but I also want to say that Dragon Age was a close second. The only other game I spent time just listening to people converse and actually caring about what they had to say.
  • I haven't gotten the chance to play through Uncharted 2, as I don't have a PS3, but everyone says that it's fantastic. My vote has to go to Dragon Age: Origins. I've never seen a game convey such emotion in it's voice acting. Whenever they randomly started talking to each other, I had to stop whatever it was I was doing to listen. It was top notch.
  • Dragon Age for me. I didn't play Uncharted 2, so I couldn't say how it compares.
  • This is Arkham Asylum for me, no doubt. I mean...these are the same voices of the cartoon! Mark Hamill is just so amazing as the Joker. The delivery on so many of the lines was perfect.
  • Dragon Age: Origins, spot on voice acting!
  • Dragon Age has an amazing cast with pitch perfect voice acting...but I had to go with Monkey Island. DA was excellent, but Monkey Island managed to do something I didn't think anyone could; take what I was hearing in my head when I played the game the first time and gave it to me perfectly. That whole experience could have been ruined with bad acting, but instead it made an already great game ten times better.
  • Uncharted 2, Great actors and simple yet humorous dialogue.

    Dragon age was pretty good but I didn't like how the main character never talked, he also stared off like a creep most of the time. I had a greater interest for all of the other characters :). I don't know why Bioware didn't stick with the Mass Effect's more involved dialogue and facial expressions.
  • Uncharted 2: Among Thieves for me, I personally think that the voiceacting can rival most movies.
  • Uncharted 2. Impossible to vote ageinst it if you've played it. Possibly the best voice acting, in any game, ever. Most unforced and natural voice acting I've ever heard in a video game, very professionally done.
  • Gotta be Arkham Asylum, Mark Hamil as the Joker was brilliant

Howdy, Stranger!
