    Tbh it's weird having a voice coming out of my characters mouth at all. And it's not weird having a white man voice a black character for me but that voice from a black character is a bit strange.

    Perhaps it would have been better if it started off with you walking into the vault and being checked in, and you hear a loud bang when the bombs fall, and then you go into the cryosleep chamber.

    True. Dragon's Dogma even had consequences for your physical choices. If Fallout 4 had the same ambition, a afro american character with a caucasian wife/husband would trigger generic lines in NPCs to hint that you are a polemic couple, considering that hey, this is the 50's (kind of). And if you had war scars, you could hint a past in the army, whereas if you started fresh and young, you could only hint that you were in the reserve, protecting the silos, but you weren't in the frontlines.

    I played as a black, big middle age guy too, the voice doesn't fit at all. You could have, at least, been able to choose the pitch/formants, to actually try to match with the character's age and origins. THAT is not complicated. Hell, even the Sims allow you to do it.

    Select "Sarcastic" option, terrible male voice actor yells "OH YEA??? YOU WANNA GO FOR ROUND 2???"

    That's not sarcastic, Bethesda.

    "WHAR SHAUN WHAR KELLOGG???" I'm not interested in roleplaying a contrived, overly emotional father figure, Bethesda.

    You guys have got to admit that the tits are amazing in the CBBE naked mod. Then again, it was created by an independent modder, not Bethesda, so no surprises there.

    This video aptly describes most of your dialogue in game:

    Before someone tries to backroom moderate I'd just like to say that tits by themselves aren't pornographic.

    To hell with emotion, sole survivor is a dense piece of wood no matter how intelligent you made him/her. S/he could ask anyone about a bald guy with a scar aswell as yell SHAWN. Especially in diamond city to that matter. Like when Chosen One asks both about KEK and Vault 13.

    I like how the script renders a personal story that doesn't fit into roleplay.

    Well before Fallout 4, the male Sole Survivor's voice worked on such great titles as Call of Duty and Aliens: Colonial Marines lol. Great job Bethesda.

    He's not bad, I think with the right direction and a fitting role he could do some great work. Voice actors are also treated pretty poorly in the industry, so they often take as much work as they can to get a decent wage. Hopefully this role will bring in some more work for him so we can see what he can really do.

    Yeah, I've heard that the guy who voices Adam Jensen in Deus Ex now has trouble finding contracts, because his voice is too recognizable as Adam's, and many studios want to avoid that. Sounds like a difficult job ; either you have a regular voice, and you struggle to get a job, or you have a unique voice and you have trouble finding new jobs once you had a hit.

    Everyone in the game making industry is treated like shit. Working conditions and hours are ridicoulous for everyone.

    Yea his voice acting and lines were bad enough that 40 hours into Fallout 4 I had to start a new playthrough with the female character, who still had awful lines but at least her voice acting didn't make me cringe every 5 minutes.

    It's not entirely his fault or anything though - the writers are absolute garbage and even a good voice actor couldn't fix this game. Voiced protagonists have zero place in Fallout. I don't care what anyone else says. Fallout 4's little experiment has already proven this.

    Back on topic, here's another thing I don't hate about Fallout 4: The mod that mutes the voiced protagonist's horrible dialogue and voice acting.

    I assume there are "voice directors" right? Because I'm always shocked at how terrible the directing of the actual voice acting is in Bethesda games. Skyrim was just so, so horrible.

    And no, casting a famous actor and just having them read lines with their iconic voice does not equal good voice acting. There is ZERO emotion in Liam Neeson's voice it's shocking.

    I have to disagree with that. The Resident Evil voice-acting might be bad, but at least people are STILL talking about it. Skyrim only came out a few years ago and already everyone has forgotten about ALL of the characters. Bad voice-acting is at least memorable. Bland voice-acting is a cardinal sin.

    The Resident Evil voice acting is supposed to be bad. It's a B-movie style horror game and it has weird English voice-over work.

    The writing in that series was always awful, the voice acting was always weird.

    I would have preferred an actual serious horror franchise from Resident Evil, but they took it in the B-movie direction and kept going and it worked for that series I guess, although now the remakes seem to be more popular than the new games, which is sadly true for Fallout in that a remake of previous games would be more popular than the new pile of garbage.

    I thought it was just because it was an English dub.

    EDIT: I dunno, parodying B-movies just sounds like an excuse for bad writing and direction. Any B-movies in particular?

    That's also part of it.
    Yea but at this point there's like 10000 Resident Evil games and they all have campy, B-movie level quality. So it's basically a part of the franchise now.

    Like I said, Resident Evil had a lot of potential for a serious survival horror franchise but they went off the rails with the writing and direction, so it's now known for being a campy B-movie type game with bad voice acting. At this point, it would be weird to have a Resident Evil that didn't look weird.
