One might be inclined to guess "absolutely nothing." While the Golden Globes is known for parading talented movie and television stars, video games are not. Video game voice acting is generally only mildly inspired and entertaining. Video game voice actors (while becoming more well known) are often B-list at best. For as much as I watch, I can not recall a video game voice performance that moved me. In fact, I rarely even notice much of the dialogue. That is, unless it completely stinks.
So, do you know the answer?
I'll give you a hint: It's an actor
I'll give you another hint: He won an award at the Globes tonight
Ok, one more: His name rhymes with Fristopher Slummer
Did ya guess it yet?
All joking aside, I just want to say well done Skyrim for hiring an award winning actor to elevate an already fabulous game. And kudos, Christopher, for giving some credibility to video game voice acting.
Bonus questions from the voyee (is that a word?)
Which games do you play where the voice acting totally takes you out of the moment?
Which games have voice acting that is so good you actually notice?
I'll give my answers in the comments tomorrow.
