SA Gamer Awards 2016: Best Voice


A good game can have the right visuals, awesome gameplay and even a great story, but it’s often the voice cast that takes a good game and makes it a great one – imagine the Mass Effect games with a different voice cast – or no voices at all! 2016 was filled with great games with excellent voice casts, but there’s one game that really stood out:

Uncharted 4

Uncharted 4

I’ve done dozens of voice actor write ups here on SA Gamer, but it’s no secret that I hold Nolan North in high regard. I even wrote a whole article about his role as Nathan Drake. I don’t think the Uncharted series would have come so far without him, but he was not alone. With other major characters played by the likes of Troy Baker, Emily Rose, Richard McGonagle and Laura Bailey, Uncharted 4 has one of the strongest voice casts we’ve seen for a while.

Runner-up: Firewatch

Honourable Mention: I can’t leave without mentioning Final Fantasy XV, another game that owes a lot to its ensemble of talented voice actors.
