Could Trion NOT find an older black guy to do Jon Cooper's voice? I laughed out loud when I first met him in the game. It sounds a lot like a white guy trying to make his voice raspy with a southern accent. Maybe it is a black male voice-over but the voice seems seriously disconnected from his appearance. I like his character though. Seems like he has an interesting back-story.

Sounds fine to me - though it is a white guy (guy who did Illidan and War from Darksiders). Liam something.

Not that skin color has much to do with voice acting - Ashley Williams anyone?

Because every single black character needs to be voiced by

1) Ice Cube

2) Morgan Freeman

The voice sounds good to me. What kind of a voice should a black character have for you?? Something stereotypical?

Oh, for pete's sake.

I don't think the voice matches the look of the character either.

There are people like this in real life, where I see them on TV and am expecting one sound, and then they open their mouth and deliver something completely unexpected. Too high pitch, too low pitch.. it happens.

Thing is, I'm not so sure it's a good idea to have it unintentionally happen in a game, especially when the developers have direct control over what a character looks or sounds like.

If the NPC was portrayed as a skinny Hawaiian native who sounded like Arnold back in the days of his most raw English, I'd be agreeing with the thread of this title all the same. There are voices that match the look and then there are those that just.. don't. There doesn't have to be anything more sinister behind the opinion than that.

I'd wet myself if that was possible. But Cooper does sound a little too white for the character, throws the whole immersion thing off when you hear him open his mouth. "Point, then shoot!"

Maybe Cooper is originaly from Canada because he sounds fine, though with that voice he could also be Asian I guess or even Hispanic, oh that's right its a voice and its pretty much racial stereotyping to suggest a person of a specific skin colour should also have a specific voice. He sounds great and I hope they don't change his voice as the money required to do that is better put into more content and not into making this game racist.

Because when someone offers an honest criticism as an opinion and people immediately play the racism card as a counter, it comes across like they're the ones that can't get race off their minds.

It's like when someone takes something you say the wrong way and makes a comment about your mind being in the gutter, when in reality it wasn't at all.. it's THEIR mind that apparently went to the gutter.. it's just very telling.

Don't be that person. :P

The OP (and others) have made a complaint about the voice. If you disagree, just say you disagree. There's no need to be tagging comments like "What kind of a voice should a black character have for you???" on top of it like you're about to bag a hater.

The only issue I have with Cooper is that sometimes the voice sounds a little too 'read in front of a mic' for my tastes. Cass is really the only voice actor I've come across so far actually sounds like a person responding to the situation with non-scripted dialogue, as opposed to reading something off a page in an effort to make sure everything is perfectly enunciated.

Mind you, I don't have a problem with the voice acting in general in the game -- it's much better than a lot of other's I've seen -- but when it falls back into dry reading, it's far more noticeable than if something was of middling quality from the get-go. :D

Black characters are different than white characters. Unless a black character is voiced by a black person, it is clearly racism. It is also racism if they are voiced by a black person who isn't black enough, apparently.

As for Cooper, his voice never bothered me. I thought his VA did pretty decent, especially in comparison to some of the others.

Meh, I've never thought anything about it up until now. The voice acting in general isn't 'bad', but it's certainly not great. This isn't Guild Wars 2, nor is it a Mass Effect - it's just simply there. Honestly all of the characters - with the exception of Cass - could use a little more personality behind them imo, but most games are this way due to how difficult voice acting really is.

Actually it fits perfectly by your own description id say.

Badass lawkeeper with a badass cowboy hat, matches perfectly with a "southern" accent and raspy voice

kids these days so hard up to dry hump some fameballs leg that they don't realize that cooper sounds like one of the most iconic black actors in history. who he also somewhat resembles, and his character seems to be somewhat written based on his most famous role.

I think it has a lot of relevance if the voice actor has a lot of the same features as the person they are voicing for.

As someone who has spent far too many years living in both areas, that is not a brooklyn accent. It sounds like someone tyring to pretend they have some sort of hybrid southern/Texan mix accent, and it's not very good, which is part of the problem. And it doesn't sound anything remotely like Danny Glover, not even close.

Ive seen/heard alot of voice acting over the years, and coopers is some of the most beliveable voice acting I've seen/heard in any game to date.

He sounds young to me, but his character looks old. That's the other part of the problem.

Lastly, I want to say that there's nothing wrong with having a stereotypical voice. In fact, in a video game I think it's preferred. For example.. the stratocarrier commander, Noah Grant, sounds very much like you would expect a stereotypical military commander to sound like.

Now (and I said this earlier) you can turn on the TV and come across people who don't quite sound like you expected.. voices are surprisingly high or low pitched, that sort of thing. The difference is (and this is key) their voice is syncing perfectly with their lips, and so it's easy to accept.

In a video game, that doesn't happen. Your brain is already struggling with the fact that you're hearing dialogue that's coming from a character whose lips are flapping completely out of sync. So, if you can't get that right then you should at least make sure the character has a stereotypical sound that sells the player on this pairing. But when it doesn't, on top of the syncing issues.. it becomes more difficult to believe.

Cooper, to me, just doesn't sound tough enough. And I think his voice should be deeper. And finding someone that can nail the accent he's floundering around wouldn't hurt. As is, it's a little higher than I was expecting and a little too gentle. Non-stereotypical for the way he looks. Of course, I say "sterotype" and you all are immediately thinking skin color and start talking about racism. (shakes head)

None of this is a huge deal to me. Cooper is, however, the first character I came across in the game whose voice made me go "huh?", though. Well, that's not quite right.. EGO struck me as funny starting off too. I think I was expecting something.. British. :P

now danny glover is from georgia. i'll give you that.

No, seriously.. not even close in my book. About the only thing they have in common is they're semi-close in pitch. Danny Glover's voice has a rasp to it, Cooper's doesn't.. it's borderline crystal clarity, except for that twang he's trying to toss in there (which keeps slipping in and out).

Not all black guys sound black, not all white guys sound white. Also remember that your voice can change over time as well as your dialect depending on where you move to and even be a mix of dialects as well as being affected by the country you were born in if you moved to some other country. That's not even taking into account that you might talk differently depending on the area in your city/town you live in, how your friends talk. Some people also quickly pick up dialects depending on who they talk to.

you can't hear the rasp in cooper's voice in that video?

maybe you need better speakers? or a hearing check up?

I think what you call/consider a rasp and what I call a rasp are two different things.

LoL.. and why is it the person who hears differently from you automatically the one in need of better speakers or a hearing check up? Couldn't possibly be on your end? How's perfection working out for you over there? ;)

Be careful with that or you're going to end up with vision problems on top of hearing problems.

I kid, I kid! :p
