Video game dubbing is one of the most important elements to make the story believable.
Today's video games are true works of art in terms of their staging, characterization and the plots they develop. Their technical and artistic complexity provide the player with a total immersion in the story.
Therefore, the work of video game voice actors is key so that everything goes smoothly and the dubbing does not ruin everything.
Video game voice actors
Spanish-speaking gamers prefer to play dubbed video gamesso as not to have to be aware of the subtitles and not miss any detail of what is happening on the screen.
In many occasions, video game voice actors perform their work only with the sound files and without a visual support of the story that allows them to synchronize their voice with the lip articulation and gestures of the character.
Spanish language voice actors have a very good reputation in all audiovisual media thanks to the magnificent work they do, which often surpasses the dubbing quality of the original version.
