During the PS2 era, there were some great games, but the voice acting was pretty bad, which fans love to hate.
During the PS2 era of games, developers started to put a lot of work into making the story feel as alive and interesting as a TV show or movie. Even though games for the PS2 didn’t always do this well. The voice acting was often one of the weakest parts.
When the speech acting wasn’t great, it was hard to get players interested in a story or world. A game could go down rabbit holes if it had a bad story or too many NPCs with bad voices in an RPG world. Most of the time, the games were worse because of it. But sometimes the voice acting was so bad that it was funny and added to the game’s appeal.
