Finally showed the English dub of Trials of Mana to my family and my dad was like "I thought you were just exaggerating but you're right that voice acting is bad"

And then we had a good convo about how VAs are widely overlooked in the gaming industry so that was nice.

I don't mean to just dunk on the VAs here, because that's not the point. I just mean to point out how widely talent seems to vary in games in general and how a game that's translated from Japan can receive such an awful dub but so many AAA titles get these great voice actors and even get to let some lesser known ones shine properly. It's frustrating.
