Not once. That said, having Stephen Fry as the narrator for LittleBigPlanet was the icing on an already amazing cake, as was having Kevin Conroy and Mark Hamill reunite for Batman: Arkham Asylum/City.

Nope, but I am playing through Megaman X right now because of the soundtrack.
Best songs in MMX history:

Sky Lagoon (X Mode) from MMX4
X Hunter Stage from MMX2
Zero Grand Theme (MMX3)
And finally, the best song in series:

X vs. Zero (MMX5 and MMX6)
Ahem


Captcha: Fancy pants

Damn straight.

I only play Nolan North games. Which means I don't have any restrictions.
Ah dammit, you beat me to it!

OT: I wouldn't play a game just for some good voice acting, but it is always nice when Nolan North pops up in the strangest of places.

Bastion. Definetly Bastion. And soon, it's going to be Transistor, also by Supergiant Games, also with Darren Korb behind the soundmixer and also with Rucks, this time as a kick-ass sword... *drooooools*

Lollipop Chainsaw. (Tara Strong voices the main character.)
I mean, c'mon! Twilight Sparkle mutilating zombies. How could I not?!

No, but I really want to play Bulletstorm purely for Steve Blum and Jennifer Hale. Love me a bit of Grunt 'n' FemShep.

So potentially this will one day be a yes.

And while it wasn't the main reason, Mark Hamill, Kevin Conroy and Arleen Sorkin were major selling points for Arkham Asylum.

I bought Fistful of Boomstick because of Bruce Campbell (I can't remember the title of the other Evil Dead game...Hail to the King I think...need to get that on the Dreamcast).

I got Brutal Legend because Ozzy is in it.

That's about it I think.

Not yet, but every time I walk by I keep considering picking up Lollipop Chainsaw, just because Tara Strong does the main character.

All I can think of it Twilight Sparkle vs Zombies, FIGHT!

No but I might if Christopher Walken decided to be a voice actor
Good news. Sort of. True Crime: New York City [http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0462582/?ref_=sr_3] and True Crime: Streets of LA [http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0378918/].

OT I have never played a game for a voice actor but I put off buying Persona 4 Arena, Persona 4 Golden and watching the anime because Tracey Rooney was no longer voicing Chie Satonaka.

So I recently finished Saints Row The Third, which I fucking loved. I think a big part of why I loved the game, besides the fact that it was just balls crazy, was the voice talent. I especially loved the voice actor for the female player character, Laura Bailey. I actually kind of want to play other games she starred in, just because shes in them.
Unfortunately, I don't think that's going to happen. I think almost all of her roles are supporting. The best you'll get is things like the Dawnguard DLC or Catherine where she plays a major supporting role.

My list:
Grey Delisle
Jennifer Hale(yeah, I know...)
Tara Strong

I know, all females. Not because I hate male voice actors, but I can never recognize male voices. Besides Keith David, but he doesn't do a lot of video game stuff, let alone major roles in them.

Only game I've ever bought because of the voice talent was called Tachyon: The Fringe. Bruce Campbell was the main guy. Turned out he was the only decent voice actor in the game. The game itself, was a pretty good space sim shooter in the same area as Wing Commander.

I've considered getting the Amazing Spider-man game because it has Josh Keaton from the Spectacular Spiderman cartoon. I haven't gotten it yet, and form seeing unskipable it seems he isn't playing the character the same way. Other then that I've never really considered getting a game on acting alone.

I like Jack Black way more than I probably should, and he was pretty much the entire reason I got Brütal Legend.
