Hey, this is something that I find quite important you know!

Today at work I was contemplating something of high importance that might seem easy at first, but really requires some serious thought I believe.

Which old Commodore 64 game had the best digitalized voice? I think I have distilled it down to three main candidates; The Ghostbusters game featured here, or should it possibly be Impossible Mission with the great "Another visitor? Stay a while, stay FOREVER"? Or maybe The Last V8 need to be considered? Not only is the "V8 return to base immediately" voice great, but the music is also quite funky, but it also brings to mind how extremely difficult that game was and the only reason we ever played it was because of the voice and the music since it usually took about 10 seconds to crash and burn...

At least, during these days, I didn't have to be annoyed by crappy Japanese voices... Something to ponder indeed...

Impossible mission ruled. They should make another, modern remake of that one.

Impossible mission won in the voice department, but face it - was the game really that fun... ?

Oh and 'the last V8' had a cool voice/music, but it was very hard to understand what the voice was saying... "V8, return to base, uschnuschni"

Yeah, I never really understood the fun of MI...

But Hugo, listen to the link to the V8 song, I think it was a matter of our English abilities, the sample really doesn't sound that bad...

If you're into this sort of retro fun I seriously recommend you to find and download a few mp3s of artist 386 DX. Start with his cover of Layla, the old Eric Clapton classic!
