Over 2.5 billion people play video games today.
Since the release of Pong in 1972, video games have become a worldwide phenomenon. The 80s and 90s saw the industry explode into the mainstream with games like Mario, Doom, Sonic, Mortal Kombat, and the Lucas Arts Star Wars games, to name a few titles. Most, partly voiced.
As video games matured, the need for professional voice actors grew, and this trend has continued with many modern games now featuring a fully-voiced cast.
Several decades later, from gaming's inception and we have games of all niches and genres, from story-driven single-player titles to massively multiplayer online titles and everything in between.
In recent years, a competitive eSports scene has also popped to entertain over 456 million people. At the heart of this ever-growing industry are the voice actors that breathe life into the video game franchises we love.
With the industry projected to reach $256.97 billion by 2025, to stand out, more and more publishers are turning to exceptional video game voice actors to give their characters an edge over other titles.
