    Voice acting and your first class choice...

    Does your class choice depend on voice acting? This was brought to my attention by a friend who decides whether to play the male or female version based on the character's voice.

    Here's an example of the voice acting for each class and gender:

    What do you guys think?

    I can't for the life of me figure out why they thought these thick accents would go well with the monk, especially the female feels like they accidentally switched it with the barbarian's voice. I quite like the male WD, DH and barbarian voice acting though.

    The DH (male and female) has the best voice acting of them all.

    I personally really dislike these sort of videos when it comes to choosing a gender based on voice acting - the best examples of the game's voice acting are when your character is talking to NPCs.

    While the beta was up, I should have made a video demonstrating this. I wish it had occured to me.

    Hearing each class/gender's dialogue about why Haedrig isn't mourning for his wife is one of the best examples. To me, that sort of stuff influences my decision much more than simply each gender's generic "we must go" or "follow me" line. That's where you hear the actual acting.

    Male Wizard is my favorite, only because he's the same voice actor in many english dubbed animes i watch. His voice alone drew me in because it was so recognizable. Male Wiz will be my first character at midnight.

    Oh is he Crispin Freeman?? I didn't actively wonder who he was until you mentioned 'english-dubbed anime'. I don't even watch anime, but I know the actor and he's been in some other stuff I've played/watched :p.

    Haha - some real voiceacting superstars here in D3 ^_^.

    Do you know who the other VAs are? Like the Male/Female Barb, WD, Monk, and DH? o_0

    They should replace all the voices with Morgan Freeman. Just speed it up a bit to get a higher pitch for females.

    No, I'm playing the classes with their lore-gender.

    To be honest it is tempting to decide by voice acting, especially in the German version. I mean you can play as frickin' Gladiator or Wolverine :eek: My main will definitely be the male monk but I guess it might influence who I choose next.

    Nope, but I might be able to find out with a bit of research.

    I never thought about considering voice acting for deciding which char to play. I've already decided on the Barb, I like the Demon Hunter guys voice too though.

    it my opinion that the female wiz has the best voice in the game. this reason alone almost made it my first choice. i ended up going with the male barb who also has a good voice. i actually like all voices except both WD and male monk

    It hasn't swayed me towards any classes, but it's definitely driven me from a couple. I was always going to play the barbarian first, but the first alt was up for grabs. I can't stand the monk's and witch doctor's voices for either gender. The wizard male and both demon hunters are pretty good. So those are all factors. Ultimately it won't make or break a decision, but it's definitely has a substantial impact on it. If I have to spend hundreds of hours with a character, I have to be able to at least stand their voices.

    Funny coincidence. Been trying to find info about who the voice actors were, just a minute ago.
    Even so, no, voice acting wouldn't affect my class choices the slightest.

    Playing fem Wiz first, I happen to like the wizard voice, so all is good, I guess.

    The WD voice acting can get quite annoying in-game :(

    Only the female one - the male noises are ok, I think :p. The noises he makes when he uses Firebomb is the best though :p.
