Audio killed the Videogame Star?

post #1 of 19
Thread Starter 
What the Hell is up with, game developers these days, in 2011, making a game and not casting a lead role? i can understand that when games were first starting there may not have been space or poor audio, etc. but its not the 1920's. we dont watch movies in silence, the sly stallones or bruce willis' arent silent, they have kick arse lines and sequences to match, and yes im talking about crysis 2(along with its many other flaws ) even in crysis 1, you didnt see him, but he at least he spoke, he was a functioning human being i find it very distracting tbh, i just dont get it.... feel free to talk bout anything thats bothering u bout games

there are plenty of games these days where the main character "has" a character or voice for that matter, but for first person shooters I don't see a need or reason why there needs to be a voice. I think alcatraz was meant to be a dummy character whereas the rest of the characters around you like prophet drove the story.

now, would you kindly stop ranting.

the problem with providing a voice for the PC is that it turns him from being your character, to being just A character you are playing.

Neither way is wrong, its just up to the Developer what they want to do.

I wish people would stop making a new thread for every flaw they find in Crysis 2.

But to be honest I think it was silly that Alcatraz has no voice. I could see lots of opportunity for a two way dialogue that went begging because the developers decided against it. I have no idea why. You don't need to show the character, but they should have a voice. Dummy characters are boring and do not help with immersion. I understand that its not meant to be a deep game, but they should at least make an effort.

Sometimes it is better if the main character does not speak. It can ruin the game if it is poorly done.

You really think that not having gordie talk improved the game? It could easily have immersed people more in the game if gordie interacted with the people he meets, or enemies.

The fact that people enjoyed the half life series has absolutely zero to do with that gordie didnt talk.
