Voiceovers had nothing to do with swtor not catching on. It was that there was so much empty space in the beginning combined with lackluster gameplay. It's hard to play SWTOR and think of your favorite scenes in the movies because rarely in the movies is someone standing and taunting darth vader while another guy heals him and someone shoots from the shadows .

This thread is still going? The OP is an obvious troll.

What is wrong with voice overs,is this a sarcastic statement?

The only drawback to them is if you lose that voice,then that character has to leave the game or find another voice,then it sounds wrong.So keeping the identity of a character in game would be the only draw back.I love voice overs but i also like an accompanying cut scene,yes i just like any kind of added effort.

Considering the last few games in the series, especially Skyrim, were voiced over...not a big surprise. And no, I was not literally shocked. That would hurt.

Edit: Honestly I'd be worried if I heard there weren't voice overs.

I'm with you. Fully voiced npcs has become an integral part of the ES games and imo does wonders for immersion into that world. They could use a more varied pool of voices for their characters but all in all the VO has always been a plus for me.

Get ready, drum rolls please.............ITS ITS


Elder scrolls will have full voice overs, DEJA VU anyone ?? ANYONE? someone didnt learn a lesson from swtor, its  a sad sa  sad sad news. i know you all must be shocked and disbelived right about now....



me too.

im sorry to be the bearer of bad news.


Full voice overs was not the fall of SWTOR, your point is invalid.

the fall of SWTOR was not the story telling ether.

but it was the lack luster combat, skills, and content outside of the main story.

treating SWTOR as a single player game it's a good game, as a mmo is fails is so many ways.

Agree 100%. Story is good, but don't sacrifice gameplay and features for it.  If I want to be immersed in a story, I'll read a book or watch a movie. I play video games for fun and challenging gameplay.

I know the thread was posted in in July, but it was started six months ago. Starting a new one to discuss this topic would be best.
