“ Jenny Hale's voice seems to crop up everywhere nowadays.

From her role as the fantastic FemShep, to her lovable role as the hot goth girl Ophelia, she definitely gets around. ” - Macabrewordsmith

“ Thought he deserved a mention, he's had some great roles in the past.

He is known for playing the villainous Gabriel Roman, the exemplar of action-movie villains. Even better was his role as Teyrn Loghain Mac Tir, one of my favourite video games villains. In addition to those baddies, he also did the voice over work for Dr. Gavin Archer, the morally grey bad guy from the Mass Effect 2 add-on, Overlord.

Also, he did a great job as The Angel of Death in one of my all-time favourite TV shows: Charmed. ” - Macabrewordsmith

“ Another voice actour you'll recognise right away, Steve Velentine always lightens the mood with his humour and lovable British accent.

Gamers know him best as Alistair from Dragon Age, and Harry Flynn from Uncharted 2 and 3. Coincidentally, he also played a character named Flynn on House. ” - Macabrewordsmith

Tim Curry
Timothy James Curry was born on April 19, 1946 in Grappenhall, Cheshire, England. His mother, Maura Patricia (Langmead), was a school secretary, and his father, James Curry, was a Methodist Royal Navy chaplain. Curry studied Drama and English at Birmingham University, from which he graduated with Combined Honors...
“ Not normally a very prolific actuor in the game industry, but I still wanted to throw him in here for 2 roles of his, both in 2009.

His role as the sinister Arl Rendon Howe was delicously enticing, and The Demon Emperor Doviculus is one of the most badass villains ever...of all time. Although Dio was originally chosen for the role, Curry was later selected because he better fits the role. That's an understatement, of course.

He was born for that role. ” - Macabrewordsmith

“ This guy just has an epic, distinct voice.

When you hear his voice over work, there's no mistaking it. You recognise him from the Dead Space series as Dr. Terrence Kyne, who probably gave the most spirited preformance in the game. Or perhaps you remember him as the narrator and detective Herschel Biggs. Another intersting role of note is Reed Wahl, the chief antagonist from the BioShock 2' add-on Minerva's Den. Of course, he's played a myriad of roles in the Dragon Age saga, but the best so far has to be Bartrand. Oh, and that Nug wrangler guy too.

Personally, I think it's a crime that his talent went wasted in Mass Effect 3. His role as the ominous and powerful Harbinger in Mass Effect 2 made him one of the most effective villains in sci-fi history. ” - Macabrewordsmith

“ Nolan North is everywhere in the video game industry, because he has the perfect voice. Best known for his role as Uncharted's lead man Nathan Drake, his flexibility, charm, and eclectic Filmography make him one of the best actours in the biz.

You got to give him credit. This man has been a prince, a treasure hunter, alien robot, Mafia boss, an insane dwarf, an emotionless husk of a mage, an alien emperor, an anthropomorphic tiger, a bartender turned assassin, a space marine, a teenage mutant ninja turtle, and much more. He's just that good. ” - Macabrewordsmith

“ If voice acting was like sex, Steve Blum would every STD known to man.

Steve Blum's voice is one you'll recognise right away, every time. How prolific is he? So prolific in fact, he won a Guinness World Record for being the most prolific voice actor in videogames, having 261 credited appearances as of May 10, 2012.

I won't even bother listing any of his appearances. If you play any number of games, or watch any anime odds are you've heard his deep voice. He may get typecast a lot, but that's for good reason; he does his job well. ” - Macabrewordsmith
