Gaming kinda had its own silent era.
Yes we had sound in games lots of bleeps and blops, and so forth.
But after playing skyward sword (which i think is very underrated 7.5 on gamespot really?) the biggest problem i had with the game is no voice acting. It makes the game feel stone age. It is a beautiful and detailed game ,but everything is said in text.
I think games like Other M are going to hold back Nintendo form trying this again. My god how did they over do it so much?
Having to take my eyes off whats going on kinda takes me out of the game.
What retro game do you want to see with voice acting?
Even newer games like half life Gordon freeman does not speak a word as people are freaking out right in front of him.
