    To be fair, the delivery is a little bland at times. At least it makes Benny seem more like a smarmy git and less Matthew Perry.

    I never had any real problems with it. I just think if people are gonna bitch about bad celebrity voice acting Liam Neeson's a bigger culprit.

    The lack of any emotion in Neeson's James when he brings up the LW blowing up Megaton really should be highlighted. At least Patrick Stewart sounded regal and important in Oblivion.

    Of "Bethesda" performances I felt both Patrick Stewart and Malcolm McDowell gave good performances. Beyond them I can't remember any decent performances in Oblivion, Fallout 3 and Skyrim. I just feel Perry's been unfairly highlighted.

    Who needs emotion and stuff like that. The fact that it was Liam Neeson was enough for me.
    He is such a bad ass that he does not even need to try and it is good

    @Bond Fan see, that kind of mentality is why we got mediocrity all these days. I'm generally neutral toward Neeson, and still think he was somewhat decent in some of his movies, but the execution in Fallout 3 was severely lacking, I can't believe it was Neeson at all.

    What was it you found lacking about what I thought was an excellent job?

    To put it bluntly, Neeson was an emotionless dullard in 3, almost like a robot with no AI and delivered his lines with little to no inflections. His delivery of his 'scolding' of the player in Fallout 3 for destroying Megaton is a prime example of this. Such a horrific action perpetrated by his own child and all he sounds like is a person expressing mild disapproval at best.

    @Bond Fan like I said, the execution was lacking. But that's also can be attributed to the fact that the writing there was generally shit, Neeson probably had to suppress him cringing at the fact he had to only mildly show disapproval at LW nuking Megaton, instead of having to, you know, maybe stop his child from continuing his evil somewhere place?

    Imo an actor is best when you *don't* recognize him. "What in the god damn" is one of my favorite lines of FONV. And I hated Liam's performance, so flaccid... :D That said, Perry's coulda been better

    I don't actually know. The criticism was that his lines sounded like the first take. It's not something I noticed. I think it was just arseholes who knew Perry was voice-acting and decided to overcritique his performance.

    Video games are notorious for bad voice-acting. Perry's performance was, at worst, acceptable.

    Well it's not like all old men had the exact same voice. Like say in... Fo3. And holy shit was that generic old man voice cartoons as fuck. I mean I like the voice just fine but did it have to be every old man's voice?

    Imagine if when you woke up doc Mitchell spoke to you in that voice.

    Yeah, New Vegas did the smart thing in that every character that mattered had a unique voice actor. Would've been disappointing if we heard Doc Mitchell's voice with every old man you meet.
