  • Army of two: the 40th day : Salem
  • Assassin's Creed Brotherhood: Desmond Miles
  • Alpha Protocol: Steven Heck 
  • Dark Void: Will
  • Resonance of fate:  Vashyron
  • Singularity: James Devlin 
  • Transformers war for cybertron: Brawl 
  • Mafia 2:  Alberto Clemente and every Pedestrian in the game
  • Spiderman shattered dimensions : Deadpool
  • Call of duty black ops:  Richtofen
 
The many many many games where he is listed as "additional voices" do not count. 
He has to voice a named person for Northies.
My pick goes to Alpha Protocol, because Steven Heck is the best character ever.

It has got to be Mafia 2. He voiced everyone in that game. You walk around the city and everyone sounds like Nolan North.

I played through black ops like 5 times and never once noticed him. Dude is effing talented...Or really forgettable. Either way Mafia 2 wins.

No matter the gender. 
 
In all seriouness though, I think he's pretty kuuuuul in Alpha Protocol. Of course he also happens to voice a great deal of nameless NPCs much like Mafia 2, with the CIA in particular being made of Nolan North clones, but he's also quite hilarious as Steve, that crazed 'Agent' who also just happens to claim he's apart of the CIA too!

Don't forget, Resonance of Fate is really funny...
 

#8 Posted by OldGuy (1492 posts) -

Yep. Mafia 2. Book it.

#9 Posted by Voxatron (352 posts) -

 Tron Evolution: (Behemoth) should be up there too, but yeah Mafia 2 for sure. 

#10 Posted by OneKillWonder_ (1689 posts) -

I thought he was really great and funny in Alpha Protocol.

#11 Posted by GunslingerPanda (4603 posts) -

I haven't played any of those games.

#12 Posted by MikkaQ (10261 posts) -

Yeah I'm voting for Alpha Protocol, funny character to be sure. 

#13 Posted by Crono11 (1634 posts) -

Like I said in that other topic. Mafia 2. How many other games does he have a conversation with himself.

Wow. Shades of Deadly Premonition AND an embarrassingly juvenile attitude towards sexuality? Your definition of funny is pretty much in line with my definition of fucking terrible.

Deadly Premonition wishes it had as good of a combat system this had vOv

@Laketown: Not doubting the gameplay - I haven't played it. Just commenting on what I saw in that video, which I found to be painfully unfunny.
#17 Posted by WalkerTR77 (1351 posts) -

Steven Heck, that character would have just been really annoying if not for North.

Was going to say brotherhood until I saw this.
#19 Posted by Yanngc33 (4496 posts) -

I would say Brotherhood because he plays a good character in that one, one with depth and personality. I'm not saying Desmond is Nathan but he's probably the best choice even if for me that voice does not fit the physical appearance of Desmond
#20 Posted by MooseyMcMan (10332 posts) -

He was in Blops?! 

#21 Posted by solidwolf52 (300 posts) -

ACB in terms of performance, but i think mafia 2 should get it based on just the ridiculousness of north talking to north.

This is incredible. Since it's just Nolan North, this is a monologue right?
#23 Edited by valrog (3671 posts) -

Wait, Nolan North was in Singularity?! Great, now I won't be able to unhear it. Thanks a lot OP.

Going to have to side with Matty and say nothing beats a whole city of Nolan North.

Yeah, He's your partner for the first 40 minutes of the game.
#28 Posted by jonnyboy (2920 posts) -

Mafia 2, best part of that game was an entire city of Nolan Norths.

#29 Posted by Little_Socrates (5675 posts) -

Only one I played was AC: Bro, but Resonance of Fate and Mafia II make strong cases for it.

#30 Posted by rjayb89 (7716 posts) -

Wow, I forgot that that Army of Two game came out this year.

So much epic win! Kinda bummed out I played that game in Japanese now... :(
#32 Posted by DystopiaX (5291 posts) -

I feel like he's kinda disappeared lately. Yeah he's in a ton of games but there aren't as many memorable ones as last year.

#33 Posted by Peredur (32 posts) -

I'd vote for Steven Heck.

#34 Posted by nickv2002 (1 posts) -

Steven Heck in Alpha Protocol is one of his best roles outside of Nathan Drake.  He definitely gets my vote.  

One game you missed that he's a major part of is Supreme Commander 2 (which came out in the spring of 2010).  In SupCom2, North voices the player character for the  UEF campaign.  Not a memorable performance though....

#35 Posted by ProfessorEss (7253 posts) -

I vote "None of the Above". 
I think there should only be Northies on the years that Uncharted games are released - and there should only be one nominee on those years.

#36 Posted by Jimbo (9767 posts) -

He also has multiple roles in Alpha Protocol, but sadly they don't talk to each other.  Has to be Mafia 2.

#37 Posted by ViciousReiven (815 posts) -
Definitely RoF.
#38 Posted by Undeadpool (4902 posts) -
@trophyhunter: Waaaaaaaaaaitwaitwaitwait, that was Nolan North as the voice of Heck? That's AWESOME!!
#39 Posted by KillyDarko (1888 posts) -

I actually really liked his version of Deadpool in Shattered Dimensions :)

My vote goes to this game! Alpha Protocol!
#41 Posted by LiquidPrince (15833 posts) -

Assassin's Creed or Resonance of Fate. Maybe as DeadPool.

He was a pretty obvious choice here - he already portrayed him in Hulk vs Wolverine and I think he's back in the role for MvC3.

After watching the above video for Mafia 2, my vote goes to Mafia 2.

I still can't believe they actually did that.

I think Mr. Miles should win.

#50 Posted by TeflonBilly (4713 posts) -
@Ghostiet: I haven't played Shattered Dimensions, but yeah, he was pretty great as Wade in this flick. 
Waaaaaaaaaaaaaaay better than John Kassir who voiced him in MUA2.
