So we all knew that at some point this year, people were going to get sick of Nolan North's starring-roles in Video Games. What I didn't realize is that it would be so early on in the year.
In this week's Totally Rad Show, while reviewing Dark Void, the hosts expressed an overall feeling of what can only be described as Nolan Fatigue (North Fatigue?)
They went on to talk a little more about it. If you want to catch it, it's about 22 minutes in to the episode.
"... Huge fan of the dialogue stylings of Nolan North, um, however, totally played out. It's actually a problem. It actually affects the game."
I'd probably agree with them, if I had played any of the big Nolan North games like Uncharted 2 and Assassin's Creed. Just a little too much oversaturation on the most major game releases (and in a main character role, no less). Though I don't begrudge the man anything. After all, dude has carved out a great position in Video Game voice acting, and I hope he's getting the pay he deserves.
What do you think? Found any earlier examples of Nolan Fatigue? Do you feel the same way? At what point does it actually hurt your experience of a game, if any?
