best FMV acting in a 3do game

Post by 3DOKid » Fri Dec 03, 2010 7:53 pm

Terrible acting is easy enough, but good acting?

X Man from NFS I reckon and/or the voice acting by Gir Draxon in Stellar 7?

(Can anyone else tell I'm on a long and boring train journey and my mind is full of 3do? I thought this thread would make a nice article for the mag, if it goes anywhere.)

I would have thought Kid that WC3 would be on your list, isn't that one of your favs?

If the X man is in the game to piss you off then he does a good job because I think he is a turd. He reminds me of someone from high school that was in no way cool and did not possess the snappy taunts. Frankly I hate him (X man) and if he wasn't in the game I wouldn't miss him :x

Don't know if you call it acting but I like the victory/loss FMV clips in Road Rash. Its also been a while since I played Daedalus Encounter but I didn't mind the acting in it. Favorite acting would have to be Wormington and Otis and the preacher on Twisted. 8)

Demolition Man should be somwhere near the top also. How many actors film scenes exclusively for a video game?
Most wanted - Eye of Typhoon, 3DO Magazines issues #14 & #15, Pro Stadium, Defcon 5

Good point.

Stallone and Snipe weren't all that bad either.

I'm going to consciously limit myself from judging professional productions and concentrate on the other stuff. I have to say that Shockwave 2 had as many proficient actors as it did huge hams. Both Twisted and Zhadnost had people very good at playing caricatures of Russian stereotypes (and the one inexplicable Russian Jersey wiseguy.)
