Because he is mute. Like Shell!

Because it's an RPG.

I am glad he doesn't. I can alter my looks for a character. With voices that is not as easy, and you might end up with something you don't like.

Because hiring 20 different voice actors, one for both genders of every race, would be an unnecessary and expensive cost that ultimately would add very little to the game?

Does not include dialogue (naturally), but gives a bit more life to your character. I am using this.

I'm using this too, but it scares the crap out of me sometimes because I'll randomly trigger a comment (from myself?), and it's way louder than NPCs etc usually are :)

I'll reiterate above though... it's mainly for immersion, oddly enough. There's no feasible way they could include enough voicesets to allow for people to roleplay their characters the way they want to. What if you want to play as an Orc with a slight lisp, or a High Elf with a Valley Girl accent?

yeah, it's neat for a while, but i've been thiking about just uninstalling it too :-\
... and that's another issue. do you really want the same narration happening constantly during the game? even if there is variation, how many times do you perform X action in Skyrim? People HATE Lydia for this reason.

"Chell is alone."
The part of Portal 2 where you're down in the old facility is the only place in the game Chell is actually alone.
Wheatly and Glados are everywhere else.

I thought you as the player were supposed to do the talking.

Sure he can, just say the dialogue aloud.

Nothing like waking your neighbors shouting Ice Form in a dungeon.

Now where is that tinderbox? Hmph. Could have sworn it was here just yesterday. Those thieves from Riften.... probably thougth it contained a lost jewel of ancient elven queen. Hah! Oh, well. Wife? Wife! Bring some mead. I am going to invite our neighbor to say Yol. Be polite and keep Ros behind your tongue. Wouldn't want to repeat what happened the last time.

I've always wanted to try that Nexus mod where Thu'ums are voice activated.

You'd have to really learn the words though. And if you say it wrong, it won't work which is how it should be, anyway. How awesome would this be with an Oculus Rift? I'd have to soundproof my room though.
