Posted on 17 November 16 at 21:58The comparison people are making between voice actors in video games and voice actors in cartoons or cgi animated "cartoons" is weak.In cartoons, the voice acting is a major and crucial part of the product, whereas with video games it is not. People don't ever buy games - or not - due to the voice acting in the cutscenes. To suggest they do would be asinine.Also, while I have no issue with people being paid a fair wage for the work they do, crying because it is hard to make a living doing something is a very left wing view on things. There are many industries wherein it can be hard to make a living. I see no reason why we should feel worse for voice actors than we do for people who struggle to make ends meet who work in more important industries though. Like many careers in the entertainment industry, you have to struggle to succeed. That is life. Deal with it or find another career.
