    Best game voice acting?

    By which I mean most hilarious game voice acting.

    This gets my vote: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=av6vK6Q4JNE

    The Dawn of War series immediately comes to mind (excluding Dawn of War 3, which is much poorer.)

    The Chaos Sorcerers are among my favourites there, but the voice acting in general is great (and sometimes so awful that it's great in other ways, especially in Soulstorm.)

    Edit: I think I somewhat misunderstood the purpose of the thread.

    I still go through this site now and again to hear terrible voice acting:

    Most of those are in the video I linked as well.

    Well let that be a lesson for you, WK. Embed your videos or noone's gonna bother watching!

    This actually is the best voice acting in a video game. Along with the most patriotism in a video game.

    Man if we're going to go down this road:


    Castlevania - Syphony of The Night


    Zero Wing - Sega Megadrive (remixed)


    Last Alert - Turbo Grafx 16

    And for one that is actually good:

    Somewhat embarrassingly, I only twigged recently that Vaas was played by the same guy who plays Nacho in Better Call Saul (where he is absolutely brilliant, but there's not a bad performance in that show).
    He also played Vic in Orphan Black, but every other performance kinda takes a back seat to Tatiana Maslany's tour de force there.

    Wildly OT, but: yeah, when I saw him on Better Call Saul, I was going 'waaaaaait a minute, this dude looks familiar'. He's doing a fairly good job with BCS. 'course, the fact we never see him in Breaking Bad bodes ill.

    Also, I really liked the first season of Orphan Black, it's somewhat B-television hokey but with Tatiana absolutely ruling every scene with the ridiculous amount of performances and inter-character interplay she juggles. Still, I kinda bounced off early Season 3 pretty hard. Worth getting back on that train?

    And back on topic: all of your videos suck when weighed next to the mighty Xenus 2: White Gold. Over-acting can be hilarious, but no, true terror can only be found in something that's pure, distilled, undiluted deadpan.

    BEHOLD:

    I finished it off recently, and I enjoyed it enough. Every time I found myself getting incredulous at the plot (and B-TV hokey is the perfect description), I just put myself right and said to myself "Yeah, but look at that performance! That is something special."
    I do wonder if she might be a little bit mental after all that though.

    Edit: Oh dear lord, I'm watching that White Gold video you posted Sulphur. That's... INCREDIBLE.

    Not quite as epically shit, but a grand example of the early Noughties amateur earnest Sarge:

    You can't beat the voice acting in the Ultima VII: Serpent Isle intro...



    Stand back!

    Come on. People can bash Ultima 8 all they like (though I quite liked the game at the time). But the intro to that. Great stuff:

    All of the voice acting from Sins of a Solar Empire is special, and the Vasari faction the most special out of the three factions the game has, with every unit doing a bad imitation of Cobra Commander. But the absolute standout performance of the game is that delivered by the Sivuskras Ruiner, their mine-laying frigate. The only reason you have to produce this unit is if you want a laugh.

    Sadly I don't know the name of the intern they roped into doing this.

    A sample of its brilliance
