Why can't white people voice act?
Western game characters sound like absolute garbage.
Compare that with something like Yakuza 0 where Japan has a healthy voice acting industry.

      STALKER sounds so much better in Russian it's not even funny. I feel bad for anyone that can't understand all the campfire jokes it's such a huge part of the game to be missing out on.

    you're not as attuned to the subtle differences in Japanese speech that would clue you in to a poor voice acting job

      I'm not sure that's true, we live in a world surrounded by so many accents and foreign languages that you pick it up pretty quick.

        Nta but it's entirely true; you don't retain the ability to notice subtle lingual differences as you age unless you are immersed in that culture, for example, Asian children are able to distinguish L and R sounds but by roughly nine months they lose this ability.
        The same is also true of physical discrepancies, human children are able to differentiate monkey faces from one another where adults are not.

      To an extent. Regardless of the language, you can pick out anger, fear, amusement, etc in the way dialogue is delivered. If you know a scene is meant to be serious and sad, and they don't sound like they're fitting in with that theme, it's easy to spot.

        Yeah and bad voice actors sound like they're reading off a page in monotone it's really obvious.

    Japan is one country, with a united culture so everyone is on the same page. Now try and say the same for white people, all across thousands of cultures.

    because they're not nearly as inclined to spend that much money on VAs for games.
    You'd need to pay for hollywood tier actors to get a non dogshit performance

    Because it comes with a budget, the only western games you will find with good VA are AAAs, Rockstar games always had very good VAs, so do most AAAs to an extend, as soon as you go under massive limitless budget, VA is one of the first things to cut costs on.

    you can't even speak the fucking language
    you cannot understand the context of tone, colloquialisms, inflection, intonation, nor differentiate dialects. You have no idea what good voice acting sounds like
    you're just a retarded weaboo

    It's pretty fucking simple
    Japs get the best of the best to work on their AAA games
    Meanwhile, when those get released on the west, americucks get the cheapest motherfuckers they can find because these games dont sell as well as say god of war or the last of us
    So objectively, japanese voice acting in japanese games will always be a million times better than american dubs

    Lmfao you retard. You have NEVER studied Japanese. You don’t understand why they voice act the way they do. You think it sounds better as a way to put yourself on a pedestal for playing JP dubs. I’ll let you in on a little secret. There are Japanese gamers who DESPISE every male character having an insanely deep voice and every female character squealing at all times. Oh but you probably like the latter because you’re a pedophile but you cover it up by saying “I’m attuned to the Japan culture......”
