    I had no idea that was him as the Penguin, you can't even tell!

    Great SPACE article Cooper I SPACE forgot how accomplished SPACE Nolan North really SPACE was. Hopefully he SPACE has a long and SPACE distinguished SPACE career. Also SPAAACE.

    While I prefer the work of Troy Baker more, do enjoy many of Nolan's roles, especially the ones that don't sound like him. For instance, HE WAS DAVID?!

    Gee, how strange that Desmond didn't make the list. Must have had something to do with him being an unlikable whinny douche that was featured in the worst parts of the AC "trilogy".

    Ah Nolan North, what the hell are you gonna do next!

    Coming soon the top 7 best Troy Baker roles in gaming because HOLY CRAP he's in a lot of games now.

    When I saw Nolan North as David in TLOU credits I was pleasantly surprised. Even now hearing David again I still can't really tell it's him, and the voice fits the role perfectly.

    Prince of Persia (2008) may have been a really good game but Nolan as the prince was an absolute miscast imo.

    i hated 2008 PoP sooo much! it was barely a game at all.

    Spec Ops was a welcome change for North. He just put such conviction into the orders he yelled towards the end of the game, it was almost terrifying what was happening to him. I can agree that he was fantastic as N. Gin as well, and while Baker may be overtaking him now, he'll always have a place in my heart. Mainly because whenever I almost ran someone over in a game like Mafia II and heard his voice, it just completely took me out of the narrative. Freakin' Nolan.

    Man... I really think 2008's Prince of Persia is greatly underappreciated. It was one of my favorite games of the year. They took the franchise in a new and refreshing path. I just hope they don't let it die, it's obvious they wanted to do more one they put out the Epilogue DLC.

    eh.........that's where i'll respectfully disagree. The game was a boss rush with assorted puzzles and forced collectibles. And don't get me started on that ending....but hey, that's just me.
  • Sinsational - August 5, 2013 3:37 p.m.

    I actually enjoyed the ending, and the fact that bosses had a major role, not just in the game but story-wise as well. I enjoyed the fluid puzzle-platforming, and the collectibles weren't really forced on you. You never had to collect them. And to be honest, I loved the ending. I think that was a great way to end it. Much like other recent games have done, it painted the Prince in a more human light, making us feel conflicted about the ending.

    Interesting Top 7. Never would have thought of Nolan North as a topic for an article, but it was a great read nonetheless. Yes, the man is very talented at his craft, so points to him.
  • Satchurated - August 5, 2013 1:58 p.m.

    When you mentioned that David was a sexual deviant, I really didn't think that until I saw that clip for the second time. It just sucks because it seemed like a likable dude until he showed his psychopathic nature.
  • WrathLord03 - August 5, 2013 3:41 p.m.

    By the end of his 'boss fight', just before Ellie deals with him, you can tell just from his eyes he's thinking all sorts of horrible things. David's nature stood out more than Bill's secret to me, but then again, the secret that he was voiced by North was an even bigger unknown.
  • Flashinthepan - August 5, 2013 1:57 p.m.

    Woot for the Malcolm Reynolds mention. Only two men can ever play Nathan Drake, unless Nolan North were to play the role on the big screen, in which case the number would be one.
  • JarkayColt - August 5, 2013 1:30 p.m.

    I remember playing the demo for Spec Ops and thinking "man, this guy sounds way too much like Nathan Drake". Derp. Oh, also, the new Crash Bandicoot games kinda sucked but I really liked Nolan North's portrayal of Dr N. Gin. He stayed relatively true to the original voice and also made him hilariously funny. "I hate them with CHEESE!"
  • Cyberhero18 - August 6, 2013 3:35 a.m.

    My jaw literally dropped when I read your comment. Every time i think Nolan North is done surprising me I find yet another role he played that sounds nothing like him. I also loved N. Gin from the newer games. "I hate you stupid bandicoots! You don't even look like bandicoots!!!" Ah, good times....
