Lucy Kee (who hasn't done anything since 2002) as Meru (Legend of Dragoon) and Kasumi (Dead or Alive)



Also, I know people prefer the original silent hill 2/3 voices over the ones in the Hd collection, James's VA was just a businessman who took his daughter to the casting auction of Silent Hill 2

The Bowery, Exodus
This guy called AJ Locascio voiced Marty McFly for Telltale's Back to the Future (which by the way is basically the fourth movie), and he sounded so perfect for the role that it's criminal.
Here's the ending, for those who aren't worried about spoilers

Hands down.

the sports duo in 2k football.

One guys was like a voice actor and another I think a no-name actor, but paired together as Dan Stevens and Peter Okeefe these two were awesome.

I don’t know if either of these guys even knew much about football.

Better than any real life sports commentators..... although Matt Vasgersion from MLB is second best. Most of the rest of sports games have trash play by play.

Until Dawn. The one that played Jess did a great job.

The guy that did Moebius in Legacy of Kain.

The voice actors in Rule of Rose, the lead, Jo Wyatt, can more recently be heard as Ciri in the Witcher 3, there's also Christopher Fairbank who is the guy Michael Keaton said "I'm Batman" to and was also in Guardians of The Galaxy.

There's also the similar Haunting Ground which featured Moira Quirk, who was the referee on the Nickelodeon game show GUTS and Robin Atkin Downes, who was Kaz in Metal gear Solid 5.

All the original voices in Borne, Sekiro, and every Souls. A perfect job, not just decent.

Tommie Earl Jenkins as Die Hardman in Death Stranding. For those who have beat it, they know what I’m talking about.

I’m going to use this opportunity to sing the praises of Samuel Witwer as Deacon St. John.

Days Gone has numerous problems, some narratively. But the character of Deacon and his voice actor were exceptionally good, enough to serve a sufficient hookto keep going through the doldrums of an otherwise bloated game.

We could fill this list up with actors from the Rockstar Games library after the Housers announced they wouldn't hire top Hollywood talent for their games after GTA: Vice City. This is proof that you don't need a big Hollywood actor for a good performance.

I mean, would you known who the following people are if not for the fact they appeared in Rockstar title?



Rob Wietoff (John Marston) - Red Dead Redemption



Steven Ogg (Trevor), Shawn Fonteno (Franklin) and Ned Luke (Michael De Santa) - Grand Theft Auto 5



Roger Clarke (Arthur Morgan) - Red Dead Redemption 2

Okay, anyone here remember the announcer for the original Unreal Tournament?
Head Shot!
Double Kill!
Rampage!
Unstopable!
I dunno who he was, but he deserves hall of fame recognition. He just nailed it, his voice was perfect for that job.

That was God tier work, if I'm being honest. It caught me completely off guard, and was a true moment for the medium as a whole.

The game that's a prequel to the Shadow Hearts series, it has a bunch of lesser-knowns with one actess who was in a Disney channel original movie
Doomguy's unused voice: it sounds demented, haunted. and unsettling. It's possible that it's Caleb from Blood's VA doing the voice. or it's a gamedev doing the voice role
