Guinness World Records Recognizes Star Wars: The Old Republic As Largest Entertainment Voice Over Project Ever

on January 5, 2012 3:00 PM

A rumor floating around tells that voice actors don’t like to work on games. In most cases that rumor is absolutely false, as games quite often include a much larger number of lines than movies or even series, meaning that the monetary aspect of the job is nothing to scoff at.

This is especially true with Star Wars: The Old Republic, that has been recognized in the newly released¬†Guinness World Records 2012 Gamer’s Edition as the largest entertainment voice over project ever, boasting more than 200,000 lines of voiced dialogue performed by several hundred voice actors.¬†

This is just one of the records broken by the new game by Bioware, that is also the fastest MMORPG to reach a million subscribers. Hopefully the positive trend will continue. So far so good.

Definitely a multi-platform gamer, he still holds the old dear PC nearest to his heart, while not disregarding any console on the market. RPGs (of any nationality) and MMORPGs are his daily bread, but he enjoys almost every other genre, prominently racing simulators, action and sandbox games. He is also one of the few surviving fans of the flight simulator genre on Earth.
