The current trend is for games to use not only the voices, but also the accurate likeness of the actor as the main characters. As with films, this fuels a race to sign the biggest celebs, and at great expense.
Is this the right direction? Is it increasing the cost of games unnecessarily just for the sake of ‘celeb’ status? Are games more immersive if the characters and voices are anonymous? Should the focus for a game be just a good game rather than a ‘star-studded’ cast?
