I can't remember her voice but I can think of a few others! Most of the voice actors in Forever Worlds, the wife in The Watchmaker and most of the voice acting in The Chronicles of the Sword was so bad, especially the fairies, it was entertaining! - loved the game! smile

rotfl I didn't phrase things too well did I!
I loved the game because of the story, despite the awful voices and the terrible accents which after a while I found amusing! From what I remember the graphics were pretty awful too! smile

Becky crosses The Chronicles of the Sword off of her "To Buy" list.

Wait, it was never there in the first place. Never mind.

Fairies with dreadful accents. Curious.

The police officer guarding the door to Eulemberg's bedroom in Martin Mystere--

I can usually just ignore bad voices--and often voices that bother others don't bother me--like Samuel in Black Mirror--but this guy drove me absolutely nuts.

I have to get on the "Watchmaker" bandwagon. That was the worst voice acting I've ever heard in my life. The wife sounded like a junkie on the nod and the caretaker guy...you could barely understand him.

there was some other game I played recently...Niburu maybe? I can't quite remember...anyway, one of the villains couldn't quite get his nationality straight. He kept wandering around Europe, sometimes Scottish, sometimes German, sometimes Russian or Hungarian. Odd.

My choice wont be popular with most here.

To me the voice of the lead in Keepsake. I have not played this game simply because of her voice.
I couldn't even finish the demo because it irritated me so much. Now thats bad. lol

GreyFuss, have you tried the European version of keepsake? The 'American Lydia' grated on my nerves as well, the British was much better for me.

The Beast Within was very funny for me - all the supposedly German characters speaking grammatically wrong German with such a thick American accent!! lol

European version? I didn't know there were two English versions. I wonder if there is someplace to hear a demo of a British voice.

Thanks I'll have to check that out.

smile While I have long considered Syberia a fine game, the kid named "Momo" (Spelling?) was awful. I've even wondered if all the other characters didn't sound pretty good simply because he was pretty bad.

Hi smile

Whilst I didn't "hate" the voice of Gabriel in GK2, I WAS terribly disappointed that it wasn't the lush, over the top tones of the delightful Mr. Curry cry

[Still trying to make my mind up about the worst voices I've ever heard - but the Watchmaker is looming large wink ]

Cheers.

Not the same actress at all. The voice actress in Beyond Atlantis 2 is actually a fairly well known actress, at least in Europe, Chiara Mastroianni. Nico in BS3 was voiced by Sarah Crook.

The worst I've heard was in Watchmaker and in Jazz and Faust. Other games may have corny cartoony accents or weird foreign accents or annoying voices, but for just plain flat out bad voice acting, nothing beats Watchmaker and Jazz and Faust (especially the ship captain Faust).

This is an easy response for me: almost EVERY
adventure game I have played has had stilted
and unnatural voice acting. I'm guessing it's
where the developers (some of whom are likely the
voices themselves) saved the money.

The recent games tend to be better than the old
ones. The ones that fare the best with me are:
Indigo Prophecy, Still Life, most of the Myst/URU
series, and my personal best-of-show: Tomb Raider
Legend (the English actress that portrays Lara in
this recent game is the best you will hear in ANY
game you will ever play).

I actually liked the sound of her voice in Atlantis 3, but she was just so bored. So in that respect it was pretty ordinary acting.
Some accents are particularly annoying, Mustavio among them and the Aussie thug in Dreamfall. Like some others I am not at all enamoured of the Keepsake voices.
All the voice acting in Gothos was so bad it was hilarious.

Oh, yeah! Jazz and Faust--I had forgotten.

"I am Faust, Captain of the Invincible, and I'm too dumb to live!"

I also was annoyed w/Tim Curry in GK3. In GK1, Gabe sounded really kind of sophisticated AND he had no problem with the occasional French and German. But in GK3 he's a total dork who can barely speak English, much less any foreign language. I think that was bad directing, tho'.

The voices that threw me off the most were in Atlantis-The Lost Tales.

Here were all these stalwart, half dressed Egyptian gaurds strutting around, and out pops these off the wall cockney, scottish, lower London, and other strange accents. Really startled me right out of the game world.

I have to agree about The Watchmaker. I almost stopped playing because I had to go back to the wife so many times. It never made my replay list.
I actually quite liked Tim Curry in GK3 because that was the first of the series I played. He was definitely much more urbane and sophisticated in the first one, I think I smiled through all the dialogue in that game.

I simply Have to jump in with my 2 cents in defence of Tim Curry in GK3. I thought that he ACTED like a Dork in order to glean more info if the others thought he was clueless. I Loved, Loved all the Gabe Knight Games.
I also thought the voice of the Caretakers Wife in The Watchmaker was the absolute worst ever and her clothes were at match to her voice. mad

I am SO glad to find that others find some voices annoying too! smile Mine would have to be Samuel from Black Mirror (could he BE more monotone?), and Celeste's father from Keepsake. When I listened to his voice-over I was stunned by just how bad he was. frown
Others would be Lydia and Mustavio (also from Keepsake).

(I'm sensing a theme here....) wink

I'm probably on my own with this one . . . but I really didn't like Delaware St. John's voice. Kind of monotone and for someone who's supposed to be creeped out by his psychic abilities, he doesn't even change the pitch of his voice.

You can add my mark under the Keepsake column. wink

Actually I thought Celest's father was the worst character voice I've ever heard. Not that any of them were very good.

I don't get why so many people were turned off by the voice acting in Keepsake. It just didn't strike me one way or the other--as particularly good or particularly bad. I mean, just NOT like the horror of The Watchmaker!!

I'm in complete agreement. Watchmaker is the absolute worst for bad voice acting IMO. A lot of people had problems with the voices going out, but in the case of Watchmaker it was a blessing.

I also have to go with Black Mirror...the main character. I couldn't finish that game because of it.

Also, the minitaurs...I think that's what they're called...the guardian bull things in Keepsake...anyway, they talked so excruciatingly slow! Had to keep forwarding thru that, but sometimes the characters just stood there silent for the time that it took for them to talk anyway, it didn't help to forward thru. Very annoying.

I agree with you Jenny100, Chrissie and WW - funny how some voices can really bother people, and other people think they're just fine. I haven't seen anyone come out in defense of Watchmaker though. laugh

Definitely Lydia from Keepsake.She just ruined a beautiful game.Also, the other actors from the same game, with a small exception of Celeste's voice...

You have not experienced bad voice acting until you've played the Watchmaker. (Is that like saying, "Arrgh, this stinks! here, smell it!") The game as a whole was okay, though.

Just have to add a new most irritating voice. frown

Played 5 minutes of the new Al Emmo Demo and Al has to be placed in the top ten annoying voices for sure. Didn't care for the game, I can't imagine playing it and listening to that voice every day. And the game hasn't even been released.

Good luck with this one. Not my cup of tea. wave

I didn't like Al Emmo's voice either but as nothing is as bad as The Watchmaker it's starting to annoy me less. Hope to get used to it when I have the full game.

I have to agree with Al's voice- I get that they are going for nerdy but that doesn't have to equate to annoying. Wasn't bowled over by the demo either.

Have you guys ever played Drascula? If not, go play it, come back, and then tell me that is not the worst voice acting ever.

I never could get the voices on that to work, Hammer. Maybe that's a good thing? laugh

Well, you are missing the laughs when some of the dialog comes out in Spanish instead of English smile

I don't know about worst, and I haven't played Watchmaker, Keepsake, or Black Mirror, but for most annoying I'd have to say the parrot in Starship Titanic. I wanted to throttle that bird!
