Troy Baker

#102 Posted by jakob187 (21758 posts) -

For anyone that has been putting different answers from Nolan North or Troy Baker...

The point is that Troy and Nolan both have very similar voices in multiple different roles, causing confusion amongst some people about who is playing the role. In turn, the point of this thread only focusing on those two was mainly about that and which side you take on it. In and of itself, however, the entirety of this thread should be taken as satire, since both are incredibly talented voice actors who have had massive success in this business.

Not....really.....
 
Now that you mention it, I have no idea how you managed to confuse the Saints Row 3 MC for nolan north.

You honestly can't hear any similarity in them on Saints Row 3 or even The Last of Us? Hell, even Booker DeWitt in Bioshock Infinite has plenty of times where the two could be confused.

I buy every game nolan north is in, he is the voice king

The extent to which this thread actually got me contemplating a side is absolutely horrifying. Ahh the human condition.

@jakob187: Nah, can't say I do man. They sound pretty distinct to me! When playing Red Faction:Guerilla, I wasn't thinking at any time that Nolan North's would appear in the credits under "Alec Mason." Similarly, I didn't expect "Troy Baker" to show up in Trauma Team as the main doctor.

Wait..... Can Troy Baker win a Northy?

I vote Troy Baker, however I think the only way to come to any true conclusion is to have a game where Troy Baker voices Nolan North, and Nolan North voices Troy Baker.

Sort of like a Face-Off Kind of thing?.... IM IN!

Has anyone else gotten to the point where they can literally recognize most major voice actors semi-instantaneously? Seriously. This website's obsession with Nolan North has actually ruined my ability to see the characters he voices and just see the dude in the sound booth, especially since I actually know what he looks like now. It's a testament to that man's range that I can't tell its him when he isn't using his normal Drake voice. The problem is that he pretty much always uses his Drake voice.

That's not really Nolan's fault, though. The problem is that producers specifically hire him for his "Drake voice" he's exceptionally talented, so it is a bit of a bummer.

I love them both too much to vote. But I do love Troy's "fool!"

#118 Posted by Missacre (566 posts) -

I don't know who either of them are.

#119 Posted by Soap (3642 posts) -

They are both pretty fantastic, I think Troy Baker just clinches it for me at the moment, but only because I've heard so much Nolan North... give it a few more years...

#120 Edited by Pr1mus (3946 posts) -

I'm on TeamBaker now.

He's simply a better actor. Nolan can sell the easy going guy like Nathan Drake really well but anything more dramatic just doesn't sound right. He's still great with creating completely different voices like The Penguin or the personality cores in Portal 2. I don't know if this is a talent Troy has too but for the everyday man i like Troy Baker a lot more.

Edit: Actually Nolan was really good as David in The Last of Us. Maybe he can do more dramatic or darker characters after all. I suppose i'd still give a slight edge to Troy.

Baker for serious roles, Nolan North for ridiculous ones; both have played mass murderers; Nolan North is simply the crazy motherfucker version while Troy Baker is just the "yeah, so? I'd do it again; my survival demands the extermination of the rest of the human race."

You sheep! You deluded fools! You've been brain-washed by the awesome propaganda of two vile conquerors, and you are now being pressed into battle for a false cause! Troy Baker and Nolan North, I call thee tyrants! Tyrants of voice-acting!

The only way to resist is to join the one true force for justice, fighting for every man, woman child and kitten: Jennifer Hale.

All hail Jennifer Hale! All hail the One True Ruler of the land of video game talking, the Rightful Queen of the Voice!

#123 Posted by gkhan (488 posts) -

(so, I went a little over the top there! All in good fun. Seriously though, Nolan and Baker ain't got nothin' on Jennifer Hale.)

They are the same person. Stop falling for this ruse, guys!

I forgot Nolan North did The Penguin in Arkham City, damn he was great.

#130 Edited by Sooty (8082 posts) -

Neither really, I am tired of the industry using the same people all the damn time. Troy especially as he sounds the same in everything.

Nolan is better as he actually has different voices.

#131 Edited by Corvak (1172 posts) -

this wont be solved until they both voice a character in a fighting game.

Seriously, the only reason playstation allstars should ever get a sequel is so that booker dewitt can go up against nathan drake to settle this.

I'll keep my male voice-crush with Robin Atkin Downes, tank ya very mooch.

And I still stand by my assertion!

Also, I would advise we all keep an eye (or... ear, I guess) on Matthew Mercer. Guy has the exact same sort of qualities that's made Nolan North and Troy Baker so popular, so I wouldn't be surprised if this guy follows after the industry finally decides to close the Bakery for a while.

I like em both but I am tired of their default voices, they have more talent than Drake and Snow, come on game directors or whomever decides what voice they want, it surely isn't the voice actor as they would want to showcase all of their talent instead of going back to the well almost every time.

#140 Posted by Verendus (348 posts) -

Both are brilliant in my opinion. I won't take any sides.
