More and more each year, we see video games featuring voice acting that is absolutely top class, as developed begin to realize its importance in telling an engaging story in an effective manner. From the likes of Red Dead Redemption 2 or Life is Strange to Firewatch or basically anything that Naughty Dog puts out, the number of games where actors deliver some standpoint performances has continued to grow exponentially. But of course, things weren’t always so rosy.

Over the years, we’ve also seen a lot of games with absolutely horrendous voice acting, sometimes with a particular character, other times in the entire game as a whole. And while that’s become less common now than it was a few years back, it still happens every now and again. In this feature, we’ll be taking a look at fifteen games with some of the worst voice over performances we have ever come across.

TIDUS IN FINAL FANTASY 10

The scene in Final Fantasy 10 where Tidus and Yuna laugh into oblivion like maniacs has gone down in history as one of the cringiest in our industry- and for good reason. As bad as that scene is, though, it’s also emblematic of just how bad Tidus’ voicework was for the entirety of the game. Sure, Final Fantasy 10 does deserve some slack, considering that it was the first game in the series to even have voice acting- it’s a good thing the series learned from its mistakes.
