I am amazed by this crap and totally agree with what your saying. It's GTA for fuck sake, it's not like anyone care how retarded he sounds at all, the only thing people wanna do in gta is to go on a shooting spree and kick some ass. If this was som fancy rpg, then I would understand since the voice reflects the character and you're going to have put up with him for awhile and to see how he progress in the story while growing in his character development.
Only well-known VA's (who are GOOD) can have the rights to make such a statement. Such as the voice actors for vergil and arkham in the game devil may cry3; those guys have done voices since the time of power rangers. This guy merely mimiced a mafia-accent and should not be gaining any extra praise.
"...but it's the human performances within them that people really connect to..." Blasphemy!

Eh, I don't think that RPG voice actors should get any more praise either. Remember Final Fantasy was famous long before voice acting was included in video games.

I just love how actors think everyone else is stupid. Do they honestly thing that the programmers will be like "Uh duh yeah he is teh actor he should get teh money"? No all of the programmers will want in on the action too. And when they don't get in on it they will find other jobs that do not pay individuals extra because they label themselves artists.

I agree voice is a nice feature but it is not needed .... typically I don't get to hear the voice acting because I click through crap after I've read the text...only on really cool parts of the game will I even bother to listen...

Its a fucking voice god I'd be the voice of a character in a game and do a damn good job for free lol it would be fun anyway why the hell would the video game companies wanna pay an ass load to some retard voice actor. I'd love to help in the story making process of a video game and be a voice. That and give input on art and models (it would also be fun to learn to make textures and models)

O.O He does get royalties... that is so unfair to the guys who actually program the games.
