We already have a thread for silly glitches, so let’s have one for another of my favourite game features: weird voice acting! You can post hilariously terrible voice acting, intentionally bizarre voice acting, whatever you want as long as it makes you laugh.
I’ll start with this amazing speech from Star Ocean 4.
Here’s Shadow the Hedgehog at his all-time edgiest.
I didn’t get very far into Star Ocean 5 because it got super boring, but I did enjoy this guy.
And to conclude, here is a wonderful video of Majima from Yakuza 0 getting way into a karaoke performance.
There’s one that I really wanna find but can’t remember what exactly it is… it’s a video of all the lines Troy Baker (or someone similar) had to shout in some anime-ass game where everyone has to announce their attacks a million different ways. Someone pointed out that it just sounds like Troy Baker getting increasingly frustrated that he can’t remember his password and it transformed the video into the best thing ever. Someone’ll know it.
The PC-Engine is one of my favorite gaming systems. But the voice acting for it stateside as the Turbo left a lot to be desired. Every game that has English VA has these problems too it’s not just the bad acting but the fact everything sounds like it was recorded in a bathroom into a tin can.
I see Star Ocean 4 continued the series’ legacy for voice acting.
I bought Star Ocean 3 once and returned it in the same week. This is just a small example of why I returned it. (although this is an ending scene, so, , not one I saw while playing)
