Nope, you're not on your own . . . I liked him too! Maybe I'm a sucker for bad english accents!

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.

Zak was ok I guess. woozy

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!!

Have to agree with you there WW - I was surprised to see Keepsake mentioned - Mustavio aside! I thought the voices were okay! smile

I thought Mustavio's music was more annoying than his voice. The first few hundred times I heard it I thought it was cute. The next few hundred times, though...

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 child-proofed my home... but they're still getting in!

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!
