Anyone else notice how Jeff talks, he usually starts out sort of loud and as his sentence ends he gets lower and lower (and sometimes faster). And then it picks up again when he says something else. Now that I've noticed I can't unhear it. 
 
Rock on.

@Laketown: No, Jeff doesn't drunkenly slur his words.  Well, not all the time, anyway.

YES. Thank God I'm not the only one who notices this. For those who don't see it: listen to Jeff say "This is not an awesome action game." when talking about Tron Legacy.

No one said you were hating.  This defensive (for no reason) post confirms it, though.

Both Jeff and Ryan get real quiet/mumbly at the end of sentences sometimes, which is fine unless you are like me and listen to podcasts while driving and quiet parts are inaudible over the sounds of the car -- especially on highways.

For some reason I really like the way he talks. I can't pinpoint it.
 
Oh and all the weird-ass references to gangs and drugs are hilarious.

People in general tend to trail off at the end of their sentences.

There are a grand total of three posts before the defensive one. Which one of them says that he is hating?

I guess no one smacked him in the back of the head and told him to speak up when he was a kid

@ez123: All of them! Highlight their posts and you'll see, "Why are you hating on Jeff?" 
 
They used black text so it is hard to see.

No but have you noticed how Brad's reaction to everything, whether good or bad, is a dramatic groan?
"Starcraft" - *groan* 
"Deadly Premonition" - *groan* 
 Damn, it gets so annoying.

I've sort have adopted some adopted some Jeffisms in my daily without noticing. Some of them include:
-Referring to individuals who do actions  hard to understand or justify  as "crazy people"  (i.e. a game developer would perhaps make a design decision that obviously made the game worse than better "Why would they do that? those are crazy people!"
-simplify a situation to another person, starting with the word "yo" and ending it in question form. (I.e. in regards to whether if you should purchase Modern Warfare 2 "Yo, do you like shooting dudes and modern military settings?")
- repeat a subject or verb clause twice in a sentence (i.e. "I was going to buy a second iPhone earlier, but then decided it would be a bad idea if I buy a second iPhone")

I must listen to a podcast to test this. I've never noticed such things.

Jeff talks, I listen. It's what he's saying that's worth my time...usually.  
 
Errr, unless he and Ryan are doing their monotone gag, then he's annoying as hell, lol.

@McGhee_the_Insomniac: I noticed that too but it doesn't bother me. He usually sounds how I feel.  

@luigi8922:
  That's pretty funny. I've done similar. That's why I like GiantBomb they have a similar sense of humor to me so it works.

I've never specifically noticed that, I do notice that all of them like to talk low at some points, and I don't think they move closer to the mic because sometimes I can't hear what they're saying even with my volume all the way up if I'm doing something like mowing my lawn.

Jeff talks how most people speak.
 
If you want a really bad example of trailing off at the end of a sentence, try listening to Nathan Rabin speak on an AV Club podcast.

It would be even weirder if he talked louder at the end of his sentences and started off low.

@Suicidal_SNiper: Because then he would sound like a fucking insane person. I have heard people talk like that and they can incredibly poignant and bright, but they will still sound fucking insane.   
 
@cnlmullen: Yeah I get the same thing riding the train. leaves me with the choice of cranking the volume so my ears bleed, or just not hearing certain things. I have to say it's not uncommon for this to happen whole listening to people talk on any media though.

For some reason I find Jeff's delivery to be not so dissimilar to Paul F. Thompkins.

Ever noticed how Vinny will go "..tst" every few sentences when someone's speaking.

At least he doesn't talk like Mark Wahlberg and end every sentence with an out-of-breath upwards inflection.

Dude, so true. This happened last week when I was driving to work. Ryan got so quiet and I couldn't hear him.

Jeff and Ryan both use "what" in place of "that" which could be a west coast thing. I have no idea, but it's incorrect. It's the only thing that irritates me about them. 
 
Example: Dead Space 2 is a game made by the company what brought you Dead Space 1.

Also, he pronounces "channel" as "chennel." You can hear it in this week's Nintendownload X-press among other places.
