Resident Evil 7 So... Is it Chris or not?

Is it the real Chris Redfield?

Dont you guys find it weird that they brought back hunk's ( Who only had a canon appearance in re2 and then he's mentioned in a recv file. ) previous voice actor for re2 remake and yet they didnt bring back roger craig smith for chris ( who had a lot more appearance than hunk ) in re7?

Speaking of hunk, re7 chris' awful design reminds me of hunk's design in many ways.

Like, try comparing these; they look similar imo which is still dumb:

Hunk definitely has a very light beard, which RE7 Chris also has (could be due to aging though).

Chris in the previous games have always been a dark brunette with dark beard.

So yeah, no wonder its confusing...

When you think about it, Roger Craig Smith has such range to his voice acting talents. Chris, Ezio and Sonic are all so vastly different and unique (though Kyle Crane in Dying Light sounds exactly like Chris :lol:).

I never really doubted that it was Chris in RE7. However, I did have a discussion the other day about a potential way they could salvage it with HUNK. He's the one who's called Mr Death because everyone dies around him... but this also happens with Chris because he loses his team almost every time we see him. This spun into a scenario where HUNK impersonates Chris and gets angry about the whole Mr Death thing.

But yeah, I'll never forgive Capcom for wrecking one of my favourite video game characters of all time. In both appearance and voice, Redfield just doesn't cut it.

I always love hearing the Dodge Ram advertisements on the radio. It sounds like Chris is talking about their truck specials. :lol:
But yes, they really screwed Chris up on a major number title no less.

When Roger Craig Smith played Batman in Arkham Origins, it also sounded exactly like Chris (Also, Troy Baker was a very good Joker too). Ezio though? That's a very good vocal range, because the first time I played, I had no idea RCS was voicing him.
