Ashantara.8731 Posted August 27, 2019 Share Posted August 27, 2019 I created another Charr character last night and am currently playing through the personal story. I've noticed what a great job the Rytlock voice actor (as an example) did at the time and how painful it is to listen to his later work (or the voice acting in general these days), for the following reasons:Back then, the tempo and articulation sounded natural. These days, the tempo is too slow and there is a heavy exhaling at the end of each sentence and before each pause, as if the character (or their actor) was asked to sound super annoyed or short of breath 24/7 (something that goes for almost all the character voices these days, not just Rytlock).Back then, there wasn't as much of that terrible "I'm still chewing on my lunch and half of it is stuck in my throat" sound effect that is being added to all Charr dialogue as there is these days. It was a lot more decent and properly used back then, nowadays it's overused and making me cringe.I hope we will see progress (or rather regress in this case) towards better quality spoken dialogue in the future. Cheers. :) Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
