From Nathan Drake to Desmond Miles to even the Prince in 2008’s Prince of Persia, Nolan North has made his way through a number of video games. We’d have to sit here for quite some time to list out all the games he’s been in.
He’s had quite the prolific career in video games and he doesn’t seem like he’s going to stop voice acting any time soon. His most recent voice role will even be Tony Stark in the upcoming Marvel’s Avengers game.
It’s gotten to the point where it’s weird when Nolan North isn’t in a video game.
Another notable voice, Troy Baker has been in quite a number of video games as well.
He’s dabbled in all kinds of genres and games such as Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare, Final Fantasy XIII, Mass Effect 3, and Catherine. He’s yet another person you’d typically expect to hear in a video game.
Troy Baker is known for voicing many lead protagonists like Joel from The Last of Us, Booker DeWitt from Bioshock Infinite, and even the protagonist of Saints Row games.
He’s still going strong with roles including a role in the enigma that is Death Stranding.
Yet another notable voice actor, Steve Blum has a voice that’s hard to forget. You’ll know it when you hear it because it’s incredibly gruff and deep and what earthquakes would sound like if they had a voice.
He’s been blessing video games with his voice for quite some time and you’ve probably come across it at some point.
From Toru Higashi in Judgement to Tank Dempsey in Call of Duty’s zombie modes to our space son Grunt in Mass Effect, Steve Blum has been all over.
He has a tendency to fill the voices for supporting characters but he’s got the kind of voice that makes him incredibly unforgettable.
Jennifer Hale is another voice that many should be familiar with. She’s got an impressive resume and it continues to grow with more iconic roles.
Probably one of her most notable, she graced the Mass Effect series with her voice for female Commander Shepard. With the way she takes the character, she sounds particularly intimidating when players choose the renegade path and there’s a reason many people consider FemShep to be the best Shep.
She’s also been in Bioshock Infinite, Dragon Age: Inquisition, the Halo series, Overwatch, and Mortal Kombat 11. Of course, those are only a few of her most recent roles.
Jennifer Hale has a very versatile voice and we won’t be surprised when we eventually see her in future roles.
Yuri Lowenthal’s voice tends to be scattered among a number of characters within video games. Often times you hear him in the background of whatever game you’re playing.
Though, he has had a few up front roles like Luke in Tales of the Abyss and the Prince in a few of the Prince of Persia games.
However, he’s voiced a bunch of other characters like Matt Miller in the Saint’s Row series, Marth in the Fire Emblem series, and Tobias Nebbins in Catherine. You’ll also catch him yelling about how he just won the lottery in Fallout: New Vegas.
Most notably Matt Mercer was the voice of McCree in Overwatch, Cor Leonis in Final Fantasy XV, Robin in Batman: Arkham Knight, and Leon Kennedy in Resident Evil 6.
Of course, he’s been in a few more games like Judgement, Injustice 2, Kingdom Hearts 3, Fallout 4, and Destiny.
He’s even slated to voice a character in the oddity that is Death Stranding so we’ll be sure to hear him again. alongside Troy Baker.
Laura Bailey has an incredibly impressive resume. She’s voiced a number of characters in a wide selection of video games and anime as well.
Some of her most notable voice roles include Kait Diaz in the Gears of War series, Catherine in, you guessed it, Catherine, Nadine Ross in the Uncharted series, and Serah Farron in the Final Fantasy XIII games.
Hers is also a voice you’ll catch often and there’s a distinction to it like some of the other voices on this list that’ll make you go “I know that voice.”
Most recently, you’ll find her in the newest Gears of War and in the upcoming Avengers game.
Robin Atkin Downes
Here’s a voice that you may or may not have a name for. Robin Atkin Downes has been voicing video game characters for quite some time and he has a wide spread of roles.
Fans of the thieves guild in the Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim might recognize him as Brynjolf or Kingdom Hearts fans might know him for voicing Luxord.
He’s also a voice option for a male boss in the Saint’s Row games and he’s even the Medic in Team Fortress 2.
Robin Atkin Downes is someone to keep on your radar if you haven’t put his name to his voice until now.
Dee Bradley Baker
Here’s someone with a talented voice. Dee Bradley Baker can mold it to fit a number of characters with a lot of them not being human.
One of his most iconic roles comes in the form of Gravemind in the Halo series. He’s also Hammond in Overwatch, Techies in Dota 2, RAAM in the Gears of War series, and a few of the special infected in Left 4 Dead 2.
He just has the talent for non-human characters and he does pretty well in these roles anyway. You can’t ask for more.
Finishing out the list is a voice actor who’s also been in quite a lot of video games. You’d probably know Fred Tatasciore as Soldier 76 from Overwatch or Damon Baird from the Gears of War series.
If not, he’s been in a number of other games like Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood, Prince of Persia (2008), Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice, Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night, and even Minecraft: Story Mode.
Like everyone else on this list, you’ll catch his voice often in video games and there’s a reason for it. He’s just got that voice.
