Personally I absolutely love Michael Ironside's voice acting as Fisher in this series, even if he sometimes descends into slightly slurring his words for the sake of 'grittiness'.
However with this new entry in the franchise not featuring the voice of Mr Ironside, I kinda wish they'd created a new character, with maybe Ironside's voice on the other end of the headset.
This guy could have been someone Fisher trained over time, therefore explaining why/how he handles like Fisher, but then that also allows them to add new animation and abilities that would be slightly incongruous with an ever-aging Fisher (even though with the last game they just said 'fuck it'). I kinda thought the new guy in the E3 demo sounded almost like he was doing an impression of Fisher, although I understand he has to maintain consistency with the older games.
Anyway what do you guys think? Is Fisher as big as Snake or Drake as an iconic main character with a very definable voice, or are you happy with other people voicing him in a similar fashion?
Would a new character work in a game like this? Narratively I think they could totally tell the story of different SC agents and how Third Echelon keep them secret from each other.
