Famous game characters versus their voice actors

Ah, the humble video game voice actor. A shy, retiring species, rarely seen in public and who always give the glory up to their digital counterparts. Frankly, we think its time they got their 13-16 minutes of fame. That's why we compiled some of gaming's most famous characters and put them side by side with the actors who breathe life into their virtual larynxes.

Kratos vs Terrence 'TC' Carson

Master Chief vs Steve Downes

Mario vs Charles Martinet

Lara Croft vs Keeley Hawes

Sam Fisher vs Michael Ironside

    @greenjoker You're thinking (or trying to think) of Steve Blum.

    Kratos was on Living Single?
  • leprechaun - April 30, 2010 4:57 p.m.

    definitely jack black and Brutal Legend

    @Bravo315 Same voice actor for two totally badass SAS dudes. No wonder the voice was hauntingly familiar. And GR, wrong Army of Two dude for North; it was the dude with the flame painted helmet, not the death's head helmet. North has also done voice acting for about two dozen other games besides the ones listed. reCAPTCHA: pro bovines, WTF!?!?

    If there were ever a MGS live-action movie, Hayter should get the role as Solid Snake. If he doesn't I'll hunt down the people who didn't cast him. Plus Lara Croft voice actor is SUPER h4wt! ;)
  • Skykid - April 30, 2010 2:10 a.m.

    Hey all y'alls, North has also done Romeo in ODST and War Machine in MUA2. And some random Marines in Halo 3; yeah, that was him. @sveini22, suck it up, he was only kidding; plus, its an EFFING photoshop.

    Should have included Kaidan Alenko and his V.A., Raphael Sbarge. (and perhaps Fem Shep & Jennifer Hale, I have no idea what the hell she looks like.)
  • JizzyB - April 29, 2010 7:41 p.m.

    lol, fail on all accounts except the guy who voices Agent 47, he should have been in the movie. Then maybe there wouldn't have been any adolescent love scenes and more ass-kicking, as it should have been. Could have shown some pics of the Soul Reaver/Blood Omen actors. They don't look like what you'd expect.

    didnt kratos have a different voice actor for almost every GOW game. i like how kratos is pale white in the game but black in real life lol. i didnt know nolan north was the voice of N. Gin so hes been with naughty dog for a while now. did he use an autotune machine for that voiceover?
  • Bravo315 - April 29, 2010 5:25 p.m.

    Nice list, but Craig Fairbrass should have been on there. He voices Ghost and Gaz in Modern Warfare. Distinctive voice.
  • alfonso.hdez - April 29, 2010 3:11 p.m.

    Gordon Freeman's voice is the best in the industry
  • philipshaw - April 29, 2010 1:19 p.m.

    Nolan North FTW
  • greenjoker - April 29, 2010 11:54 a.m.

  • MaynardJ - April 29, 2010 11:16 a.m.

    Some of these people look like they could play the characters in a movie. The best one I can remember: Ray Liotta as Tommy Vercetti in GTA Vice City.
  • TheWebSwinger - April 29, 2010 3:55 a.m.

    THATS Michael Ironside? Ooooh.
  • slimjim441 - April 29, 2010 2:53 a.m.

    Gordon Freeman = Silent Bob! I knew it! That's perfect man. Kudos, GR, kudos.
  • ssj4raditz - April 29, 2010 2:51 a.m.

    I saw the Nolan North joke coming, but still chuckled...
  • Harmonator - April 29, 2010 1:43 a.m.
