>pick black character
>have white voice
this is some bullshit they couldn't get black voice actors
It sounds so off. When that one leaker made a huge black guy, his voice was that of a beta white male. It didn't fit at all. Same for and evil character. The default voice sounds so weak and passive.

Not sure why, but a white person doing a black character's voice doesn't bother or affect me, but a black person doing a white character's voice surprises me. Not unpleasantly or anything, it just strikes me as weird.
Kimberly Brooks, for example.

>think that the racial and cultural dynamics of my particular country are the same everywhere for all time
I'm from Canada. The black folks I meet come from Haiti and speak french.
Why don't they have "black voices"?

Although to be fair, Bethesda completely forgot Fallout's society is based on what the '50s thought the future would look like (only for it to become Mad Max.) They pussied out on all the stuff like racism.
Voices don't always correlate to skin color sempai
It's mostly all in inflection and the culture you were raised in
ie. if you learn to speak from ghettoass niggas, you're gonna sound like a ghettoass nigga regardless of your lineage
I'm afraid I have to agree.
I'm sorry, but you've made a significant portion of a sub population speak like caricatures of themselves.
While I'm normally not in favor of a death penalty, I don't believe we can properly match your crime with anything less than execution.
Based on 50s society but certain elements did advance beyond it while the game had it's child killing balls.
I'm sorry /pol/, but the 2077s America was racist against the Chinese. Most American's stuck together under a tune of jingoism.
Guys I need to know this, this will literally dictate if I buy the game or not.
Is it likely that someone will be able to delete all the voiced protagonist files? I don't even mind look at him move his mouth I just don't want to hear his voice.
It's entirely possible to determine a person's race by the sound of their voice.
I can't find a text article of the study done that isn't hosted by some bullshit clickbait site like io9, but this is the NPR story that I heard where they talked about it:
>make big strong melee/enforce black man in NV
>rushing up to bustas with my super sledge
>do a power attack
>"haaaah~" in pussy ass white boi voice
This is unacceptable. Why not just give the play the option of changing the sound of the of the voice of the character's grunts, moans, inhaling, and what have you? Of all the features the Bethesda could have added, this could have been an easy one. Cheap work from any voice actor/actress.
>No you see.
>Having a voiced character with an established background and obligatory story intro is so much more immersive.
>It's not our fault if you want to play as anything but a white voiced, middle class person with a wife and a black baby.
>You can be anyone you want to be
>People purposefully choose to be a nigger
>Someone edited this because they were too inept to realize chuck is term meant to rhyme with shucks, not a name
Sometimes I worry about you people
>I'm sorry /pol/, but the 2077s America was racist against the Chinese.
Yet you see Asian characters in vaults, mingling freely with everyone else. You don't even meet any ghouls who hate the Chinese.
You also don't see anyone dying of thirst in FO3 except the odd karma dispenser outside some towns.
Or any renewable source of food.
It's almost like Bethesda are terrible at world design.
Bethesda is terrible at world design, but at least the guy dying of thirst was an attempt at it.
It doesn't excuse everyone living off 250 year old potato chips and packaged noodles, but if you have high standards at this point it's your own fault.
People of different races do sound different just like we look different. There may not be a difference in the words said, but just how the voice sounds is in fact different.
I'm black and it was annoying in Mass Effect when I looked like Obama and sounded like John Carmack.
>where do the perk centric speech trees fit in?
>Yet you see Asian characters in vaults
What if they were Japanese you racist fuck.
No, but really, the Shi (chinese faction in san francisco) seem to be doing rather well and I don't recall people muttering about them because they're chinese or any racist ghouls.
I guess racism died after the first blast, but don't worry. You can scratch any racist itch you might have with ghouls.
>Newspaper stream up again
>Stream dies a thousand times due to fag admins

>Streamer speaks out loud to say it's on Ultra settings
Well, we know why the gameplay looks like ass.
You're a nigga weeb, so you're cool and more than likely chill, as I will judge you based on a mix of your skin color and interests in which literally every nigga weeb I know is cool and chill
In fairness, it's canon that the civil rights movement happened anyway, just further down the line than it did in our timeline, closer to around the 80s, and it was more peaceful overall. Just because the old world is based on what the 50s thought the future would be like doesn't mean it stayed culturally stagnant.
You don't have to look closely. All they did to make it "black" was make his nose extremely wide and his skin dark.
Shit is ugly. Not all black people have noses like that. I'm black and I think wide noses and huge lips are ugly.
>Voicing your protagonist at all in a wRPG
>*abandondons chillen at little lamplight*
Are all female player characters lesbians who presumably adopted a baby? If the intro for males and females is exactly the same, I wouldn't be surprised. I also wouldn't be surprised when its touted as a feature instead of extreme laziness.
>living in such a nice area
He's a military vet and I think in the house there we signs that you were decorated.
You don't need to be of or sound like the upper crust to make it to suburbia from the military.
Look at the nose on this nigga then look at somebody like Denzel Washington or Idris Elba.
Niggas like this nose so big you can use it as a water slide.
>be balck guy
>get sent to vault 223

You were supposed to make a modern human that would "survive" nuclear war, not an extinct proto-human that went extinct 250,000 years ago.
got bad new 4 u whitey...
>try to make black person in fallout 4
>end up with homo erectus every time
Bethesda hates OP
I can't breath from laughing so hard, holly shit the apperance is uncanny hahah!
In fairness, EVERYONE in the original trilogy was dubbed over in post. Stuff on the set was so loud (especially C-3PO's parts) that you simply couldn't hear the actors. They talk about the voiceover stuff a lot in the commentaries for the OT.
