You know in any game, where there is a cool voice announcing a game's title once you start the game, or even when "Deathmatch!" is yelled in game.
Post which announcer voice is the best and the reasoning behind that.

Mine would have to be the Announcer from Resident Evil 4 at the title screen.
Go to around 30 - 35 seconds into the video and you'll see why.


No matter what your weaknesses are, make sure your own abilities supersede them.

Ratchet Gladiator is a game that was made around this concept. It's got a few hillarious one-liners shouted randomly around in the game.

I think he funniest is Cruisin World for N64.
You'll just be racing, then an almighty bimbo yells out "CHECKPOINT" or "GO BABY!"
Enough said about that, I think one of the better sounding ones if from Smash Brothers Brawl. Although you don't hear it much, it sounds pretty bold.

The guy from Street Fighter Alpha 3 sounds kinda cool "Live and let die... Go for it man!", but I think the guy from Capcom vs SNK 2 is better, even if he doesn't sound as excited.

He also has more phrases and sometimes talks during the rounds "That's what I like to call, big damage"; and he's not as annoying as the voice in the Real Bout Fatal Fury series.

The original announcer was awesome, but in SSBB, the new announcer was a buzzkill.

Minus Super Smash Bros. (he sounds like a nerd trying to do the Quake announcments), I agree. NBA Jam's annoucer was just so over-the-top hilarious and exciting, that I couldn't help but fall in love with it. Team Fortress 2's announcer has that tension built into every line, which only adds to the gameplay experience.

your dumb, the resident evil 5 announcer sounds better, also the Halo announcer sounds dumb too, he sounds like a cheezy voice you get from a Disney gamer stereotype.

i liked the timesplitters anouncer guy, skip to the 0:50 point to see what i mean, this voice sounds cheezy too but it's still better.
