Until there is a Video Game Voice Acting Hall Of Fame, we will have to make do with The Great Performances, an ongoing celebration of those thespian moments that could not be found in any other art form. Mostly because those other art forms have bigger talent budgets.
After development of The Gameological Society was well underway, we received a letter from a law firm in Woodcress, Missouri, demanding that we cease operations immediately. It seemed that there already existed a Gameological Society, established by one Arthur M. Gameological in 1932 as a forum where the Woodcress elite could drink highballs and discuss snooker strategy. Arthur’s grandson, the last scion of the Gameological family, told us that he would forgo a lawsuit under one condition: that he be allowed to host a moving-picture series dedicated to his deepest passion, video game voice acting. Since changing the site’s name was not an option—how would we ever find another moniker that was so catchy, so easy to pronounce and spell?—we grudgingly agreed to grant Arthur M. Gameological III the platform he desired.
Thus, with deep contractual obligation, we present The Great Performances. In this episode: Last Alert, a 1989 run-’n’-gun game for the Turbo-Grafx system that possesses strong attitudes toward pork.
