Annoying lines in a vid game

What lines, in what games, have gotten on your nerves (either b/c of the actor's delivery, their triteness, etc...). I'd have to say the "Embrace eternity" line in ME would be an example for me.

On another note, anything Kaiden Alenko says in Mass Effect also annoys me

Me too, but only because he sounded like Carth.

Blasphemer! Kaiden's voice was awesome!

Y'know, uhh...despite being Carth's voice, which I absolutely hated. Guess it was because Kaiden didn't whine all the time.

The male Shepard's voice, on the other hand...(/shudder). I started playing ME1 as a male just to see the differences in the story, but by the time I was half-way through the Citadel, I wanted to strangle the PC just because of his voice. Also, pretty much any conversation with Liara had me grinding my teeth together. (The "Embrace Eternity" line was the worst, hehe.)

Other games...

Final Fantasy X: Tidus's voice was bland. His "laugh" was worse, somehow managing to remind me of a constipated owl instead of, y'know...laughing. Wakka practically reduced me to tears whenever he opened his mouth. Yuna was sorta like Tidus's voice pitched a little higher. Frankly, the only voice in the whole game that didn't annoy me at least a quarter of the time was Auron's voice.

Those are the main game voices I can think of. (shrug)


Chapter 12 of A Soul Adrift is out.

Short stories:
T'katlu: On the planet Felucia, a young apprentice of the Dark Side thinks back to the beginning of her training as she lies in wait for her prey...

All the Time: After four years in the Unknown Regions, the Exile returns to the known galaxy to visit an old enemy.

Broken: A master of the Dark Side finds himself about to lose the one thing he cares about--and he will do anything to stop her from endangering herself.

I realize this and yet it still bothers me probably because I didn't like ether of their characters especially Kaden

Carth could at least handle himself with a blaster. Kaiden got stumped by a simple assault rifle. point and shoot. Ashley doesn't annoy me, but the fact that no matter who you pick to die on Virmire, Kaiden or Ashley, they both complain and say it shouldn't have been them.

That and repeated use of "Single, glorious..." (Bastila and/or Darth Malak in KotOR; Shi'ala in ME).

"Glass Mother" is either number 3 or vying second place.

Funny I thought the actor that voiced both was Raphael Sbarge.

Actually, I checked and Raphael Sbarge is voiced by Carth.

In Dragon Age Origins, Leliana always yells 'AAAAAHHHH!!!' (worst battle cry ever) whenever a battle starts. It's really annoying. I never liked her anyways (dunno why specifically, her personality just irks me), so I never talk to her nor have her in any party, EVER. In fact, I might just not let her even join the group at all in my next game.

In Star Wars the Force Unleashed, Kota always says 'Pull down that star destroyer!' and the way he pronounces 'Destroyer' sounds a bit distorted , which really gets on my nerves. It sounds like 'Destr-oo-y-er' or something.

There's also 'Do a barrel roll' and 'You must construct additional pylons' in two other games. XP


Please feed the trolls. XD

That extra 'uh' is the sound of a classically trained actor, see.
