Should the characters have voice?

    Hey

    Zelda is a great game for wii:) as I really enjoy.

    But I miss the characters voice, I think it could add some
    more depth to the game if all the characters got voice.

    What do you think?

    nope, sometimes there's a occasional laughter or whatever, but there is no talking. I don't really care though. It makes the game better in my opinion.

    I think that voice would ruin the Zelda 'feel'. Zelda has never used voice, and most likely never will. Voice works for some games, but I think most Zelda fans would agree that it would be best for Nintendo to stick with the dialog boxes.

    If we get voices in the games we have the chance of getting some really horrid voice acting. That itself has ruined some games for me.

    Midna's laugh is slightly creepy lol or atleast it was the first time I heard it come out of the wiimote. At first I thought it was weird not having voices because most games I've played do but it doesn't bother me at all now.

    it would be nice some time to have voice overs in the future of a zelda game as long as they were good. But i agree voices would probably take the classic zelda feel away.

    It would ruin the series. Zelda has always had no voice. We find out more by reading in my opinion and voice actors could be terrible.

    nah, no voice. im so sick of these threads. this has been posted a million times and i think its safe to say anyone whos someone agrees there should not be voices in zelda. it would ruin it. it makes it more creative when you image what they would sound like, and if they started putting voices in it it would totally ruin what you thought they would sound like.

    have you ever read a book before the movie was made. you totally had your imagination running wild on what the characters in the book looked liked and how they sounded. but when the movie came out it totally ruined and the characters looked nothing like you imagined.
    i know this isnt the best example. but i seriously cant even remember what i thought harry potter looked and sounded like since the movies came. but i know i had my own image in my head and it looked nothing like he does in the movies. same thing for zelda.

    Many have complained about it....A LOT! So those who doubt they will add voice acting...guess again. I myself would like to hear voices of Zelda and Ganondorf....but Link is a NO! No matter how much anyone wants Link to talk he never will so get over it...anyways Zelda needs voice acting (make sure its actually good) and Im not asking everyone to talk...just the important characters.
    We are going to see some voice acting, mark my words.....Im positive!

    Thanks for all the replies so far:)

    One of the reasons why I need voice is because I focus
    so much on the text, so I feel I don't see all the graphichs and
    animations especially in cutscenes with camara movement.

    And I wonder how the "Zelda feel" is? sorry, I'm new to Zelda:)

    From a professional point of view, not saying its right, its my opinion:
    I think it should. I mean there are times when I just want something said. It doesn't ruin Zelda's feel. They are so close to full voice acting with all the grunts. It would've intensified the last scene had there been a booming voice coming forth. And as for Link not talking. I draw the line. I know Miyamoto wants US to make Link who we want him to be. But this game felt forced. He has so many facial expressions that he is his own character, there were times when he just needed to say a line.

    wow....maybe that was what felt wrong with Twilight Princess.....yeah we have to remember that Mr Miyamoto wasnt in direct control of the game, Eiji Aonuma was and has been since Majoras Mask.
    Damn, we need a game that is directed by Mr Miyamto again.....I dont care about the long delays...in the end it will certainly be worth it! No wonder there hasnt been a Zelda game that has beaten OOT yet!

    voice acting is good in lots of games, but it just...wouldn't be Zelda if there was voices...

    Yes it would, it would be a better zelda. You got this dyanamic character Link who now has a lot more expression to him (this is good and needs to stay). But it doesnt leave a blank slate for you to write on. Its there. It's time for him to talk. and its time to move onto voices. It would make the story so much better.

    i don't think so :p the zelda creators would never put voices in, because they never have and it wouldn't be true to the series. they have had opportunites for ages, but they still havn't
    but meh i could be wrong

    Remember when Mr Miyamoto told us that this (twilight princess) would be the last Zelda game in this form? well I think they're focusing on adding new things to the games rather than completly staying true to the series. Theres a 50% chance they wont add voice acting and a 50% chance they will. I vote voice acting because it will without a doubt make the Zelda world feel more alive than ever before and Im sure Nintendo realized this too

    and bear in mind this is the second 3D platformer zelda since N64 which doesnt really count as an opportunity for voice acting. They were already strict on space when the game was as it was. They will put voice acting in, I believe, due to the fact that sales in japan on zelda are dropping bad. People are bored with zelda. THey are going to do a lot of changes before the next one releases, and I am sure voice acting is one of those changes. IT will help in the market place. plus since everyones main con for the game was the lack of voices... well you know.
