26 – Best voice acting?
I’m not sure about ‘best voice acting’ but the voice acting I always remember is Max Payne’s.
Maybe there is more heartfelt, passionate voice acting in the world of video games but I will never forget the melodramatic, yet deadpan delivery of lines such as;
“They were all dead. The final gunshot was an exclamation mark to everything that had led to this point. I released my finger from the trigger. And then it was over. To make any kind of sense of it, I need to go back three years. Back to the night the pain started.”
“I don’t know about angels, but it’s fear that gives men wings.”
“He was trying to buy more sand for his hour glass. I wasn’t selling any.”
“Collecting evidence had gotten old a few hundred bullets back.”
To this day, if I need paracetamol I will take a breath and mumble “The pills would hold the pain back for a while.” That’s the deep impression Max Payne’s voice acting has made on me…
