Top 10 Acting Performances In Video Games
In strategy games you only see characters in cutscenes, so great acting for fostering attachment is not as necessary as in other genres. Despite that, Joseph Kucan did an amazing job portraying Kane, the charismatic leader of the Bortherhood of Nod in the Command and Conquer series, the grandfather of the RTS genre.
It’s important to note that the cutscenes in all C&C games are live action, which means the actors’ body language is just as important as the voice work. Kucan did an amazing job using both to portray Kane’s range of emotions, whether it’s calm and strategic or loud and maniacal. It’s not that hard to see why he got inducted into the Gamers’ Edition of the Guinness Book as the longest recurring actor in a video game series.
