(Really) bad voice acting in games

November 24, 2009

These are also excellent examples of bad writing in games.

My favourites: “Just before you die, I’m going to tell you a secret so you really don’t want to die!”

“I like girls, but now…it’s about justice!”

“I have to stay awake and write this article before I die!”

…and the Mega Man bit is just unbelievably funny.

Special mention should go to the Irish guy in Bioshock. “Look out! Sploicers!”

UPDATE: many of these come from the excellent Audio Atrocities. The first thing I clicked was…The Taint!

Vodpod videos no longer available.

Or would this get old? (Damn those computer game designers. Every time I think I’m out they pull me back in.)

The people at Boing Boing are disturbed by the Mickey Mouse-stylings of this Georgian riot cop, but I think the resemblance to the bad guys in Half Life is even more worrying.


By the way, The Orange Box is every bit as good as everyone’s saying it is. The gameplay’s great, but for once the quality of the writing is equal to it– the script for ‘Portal’ is superb.


Dang…it looked so good, too…

If you’re thinking of buying Bioshock, be careful
