Samus in Metroid 1 Metroid 2, Metroid 3, Metroid 4, and the Metroid Prime Trilogy: I’m a strong independent bounty hunter that doesn’t need a man!

Samus in Other M: THE BABY THE BABY THE BABY THE BABY THE BABY THE BABY THE BABY THE BABY THE BABY THE BABY THE BABY.

Seriously, Nintendo, Team Ninja, what the Hell?

That’s what’s funny – the voice actress that was chosen can portray emotions, but Yoshio Sakamoto wanted the character to sound detached and stoic. I don’t mind her voice when she converses with the other characters, but think that got really grating when you had to listen to lengthy internal monologues.

Yeah you have to forgive to voice actress, it’s not her fault at all. It’s just so dumb when players blame a VA for screwing up the character’s personality, when really it’s the writer/directors fault for telling the VA to give that kind of personality to the their character.

I don’t fully accept this. While I agree that she doesn’t deserve all of the blame and she may be a very fine actress, her performance in this game was still mediocre.

You can do stoic and still be compelling to listen to, pulling in the listener with every word. There are many games with characters that prove this. She sounded more bored and I felt the same way along with her with much of her dialogue. Some of this is writing but delivery also counts.
