    So a dead, monotone voice so much better than a voice that actually -had- emotion had emotional scenes? Mmmm, not buying it.

    She doesn't have to reach, because he's way below her.
    Statix will suffice.

    It's all their opinion.

    Mine is that Male Shepard was acted brilliantly. I let these silly fools believe that Fem Shepard was superior. But in secret I gloat over their foolishness!

    I'm in agreement with the Male Shepard group, the voice just seems so much more suited, i've said it before and i'll probably say it again when I pop back to the thread and play catch up. Jennifer Hale is not bad as a voice actress, but I feel that Mark was just... suited perfectly for Shep, especially when Shepard is lashing out at someone, the attitude he puts over in his voice is really well done.

    Just my opinion though, to each their own.

    Stop this madness!

    Mark is good as a renegade Shepard.
    Jennifer - paragon.

    I don't mind either Shepard but Bro Shepard is my preferred choice. Still Imagine if he was voice by Patrick Stewart, his voice makes love to my ears!

    This I can agree with.
    Statix will suffice.

    I think both Mark Meer and Jennifer Hale are good at both alignments

    If he was voiced by Patrick Stewart I might actually be able to play Broshep.

    For me it's exact opposite, Hale better as renegade and Meer better as paragon. Hale's also overall better voice actor than Meer !IN MY OPINION!, Meer is fine too mostly. There are just few scenes where Meer's acting is just in completely wrong tone(eg. there is one scene where Meer is pretty much yelling while Shepard's not angry or anything, and while everyone else speaks normally). I don't know if that is Meer's fault or if he was directed poorly, but I've never noticed scenes like that with Hale.

    Also I just think that Hale's Shepard has more personality in her voice. As I said earlier though I think they are both good voice actors.

    And i would be able to play BitchShep if she was voiced by Sir Christopher Lee, who i am DEEPLY sorrowful over the lack of in ME.

    Indeed, I played the prologue of ME3 with a broShep. Could not stand it. I was like "dude, show some fucking emotion."

    Even the famous "we fight or we die" line was flat. "The Reapers are more advanced than we are. More powerful. More intelligent. They don't fear us and they'll never take pity on us." Also flat.

    Granted, Meer is a better VA than whoever did Geralt in the Witcher.
