        Isn't this a video game board? Shouldn't years of gaming have gotten you to have your eyes easily be able to take in everything on the entire screen? Video games have tons of HUD elements hidden in corners and some need extra awareness so your brain doesn't even see it as extra work to casually move your eyes to take in the entire screen.
        Like come on lads this is an extra normie tier complaint that get 0 screentime aside from their phone, you shouldn't be having trouble with this.

        The voice acting industry isn't taken seriously in murrica. Most Murrican VAs are either failed actors, or regarded as such. It's somewhat similar to the situation with nurses, where retards insist that nurses are dropouts who failed to get their MD, even though nursing is a completely separate occupation

        No wonder americans are the most butthurt about the popularity of jp voice acting. They're used to eating shit since early age and when other countries don't enjoy same shit it makes them feel like they are not so MURICA #1 anymore. Maybe also because Hollywood is falling into irrelevancy fast, and their actor celebrities are slowly becoming nobodies. Nobody new to replace charismatic actors like Tom Cruise or Bruce Willis.

            I once coached some Japanese middle schoolers how to act in English. Some could not use their eyebrows to show emotions, even simple things like raising their eyebrows to show surprise. When you learn about their cultural concepts like tatemae, it starts to make sense why showing extreme emotions become novel ideas in their media.

            That's not to say all Japanese media is like that. For example, Hirokazu Koreeda's movies are grounded with little to no overacting due to the seriousness of the subject matters. It exists, it's just not "popular".

      Japanese natural speech has a weird pace, it wouldn't work in theatrical work unless the point is to sound as "real" as possible. Though I wouldn't like English or my native language to be spoken "naturally" either, action movies wouldn't be the same without silly and cheesy one-liners. Many movies where the actors are made to improv a lot tend to need many cuts or are just terrible, like Ghostbusters 2016.

      Whether someone can tell if voice acting is good or not, really dependents on how much they understand that language and hears others talking said language.

That's why those who were born learning one language will never sound natural when speaking another, unless they spend a lot of time learning and getting immersed in it.

        This. Remember when everyone was sharing the other Mario dubs for the movie? We may not understand the language, but we can tell whether or not a voice fits a character and if the delivery fits a scenario
        My problem with dubs in other languages is that I usually can't tell the difference between different voices for the same type of character. For example, most middle-aged male characters may sound the same to me in a piece of media and I'm not sure if I'm just ear-blind

    calling it objectively better when you have 0 knowledge of the language may be an ignorant statement but you can absolutely call it better sounding. some languages inherently sound better than others, on top of that japanese voice actors are better trained and have different kinds of voices compared to english speakers, so if someone prefers that it's fair.

            I listened to some c-pop to get more familiar with the language. It doesn't sound that bad, but it's certainly different if you expect anything like Japanese.

            If I had to pick from CN or JP dub, I'd go with JP anyway because they take voice acting so seriously and act their best even in insignificant projects.

    Are you too spastic to understand that "it's better" can mean "I enjoy it better for whatever reason" and not just "I can tell that those actors performed more skillfully in their language than these others did in mine"?

    Also, there is no evidence to the idea that if you don't speak a language then you're completely incapable of evaluating somebody acting in that language. Much of acting is about expressing emotion, and you should be able to tell when somebody is doing it well.

      Because I haven't yet heard an English dub that didn't make me throw up a little in the mouth. I mean, Japanese voice acting school is pretty bland, they have, like, limited amount of voice templates that every VA has to adhere to, but at least they train their VAs and expect them to adhere to some standard. Americans, on the other hand, recruit their VAs by leaving the vocal booth open and waiting until some nerd wanders inside by mistake.

      This guy gets it. It's not that the Japanese dubs are particularly good, it's that American dubs are insufferable

      You collect trading cards for yellow 8-year-olds as a grown "man."
      You have never had a single W in your life, and your death will be miserable and lonely.

    It's usually about tone and cadence for me. English voice actors tend to be reserved and dead-panned.

    American voice actors sound obnoxious and white. I’m not playing a samurai yokai slayer game with a dub voice that sounds like an Ohio housewife. That’s retarded

    the only bad voice acting in a japanese game i recall off the top of my head is shiro-no-sho in replicant, and yes I can into nip and nip tonality

    if I listen to dubs it's usually because it's a JP dub, like in case of metal gear solid, or sometimes I watch JP dubbed western shit for practice and memes, I played most of the new AC games in JP, watched breaking bad and pulp fiction in japanese etc... you almost never hear bad voice acting in modern productions even if it's a whogivesafuck dub of a TV series

          Think, that means that the devs built the game around the english voices. They picked the voice actors themselves and directed them. Not the same thing in most jap games where they never consider the eng voices.
