    Alright, since pretty much all of the year's hottest games are out already, vote which debut character you liked best. :up:

    It was between Altair and Big Daddy, so I thought "who would show up in the dictionary first if they were both included?" :o

    Damn you all! Nothing can live up to the sheer brilliance of Captain Price. Nathan Drake comes second.

    Yeah, the voice acting wasn't exactly on par with the rest of the character's awesomeness though. I think what bothered me most about it was the bloody American accent. It's obvious that Altair is an Arab, like everyone else in his cult group. He just didn't sound exotic or sophisticated enough like he is supposed to.

    I don't believe there's any such thing as an "American" accent, considering that there are around four different accents in the nation alone. So that doesn't make much sense. If you're talking about the neutral Midwestern accent (the one that people can actually understand), then yes, you would be right.

    technically no. Same Voice actor, probably same personality just a different time.
    Hell same beard.
    I am not disputing the awesome of the Captain for dammit he was freaking awesome. Though I liked Soap as well:o just that Price as a Character harkens back to CoD1

    Big Daddy, just sheer badass, although admittedly I haven't played any of the other games on the list.

    exactly...the voice actor was a big issue with me. it's ridiculous that the towns people and Alta'ir's contacts sounded more authentic than he did. not to mention, that voice actor was just BAD. if they were going to pick a voice actor who can only do an American accent, the least they could've done was pick a decent one but that guy was just BAD. i honestly could've done his job 10 times better than he did and i have practically NO voice acting experience.

    they spent so much time and effort on this video game that was a collaboration between all different races and religions, yet they couldn't find a decent voice actor with a middle eastern accent? shame...



    ...either way though, Alta'ir (sans his voice actor) is definitely my fave newcomer.

    As awesome as I thought Price was, Altair is simply in a whole other league compared to all the other characters this year.
    I mean, just look at this:

    It's the ultimate convergence of all things cool and badass. :up:
