  1. I'm beginning to feel like people who have been claiming that Ben would be a better voice for Sonic than Roger haven't really considered the full implications behind that. Because he would be subjected to the same direction and script readings that people claim Roger is terrible for. 

    I'm not gonna comment on the voice itself because that's subjective, but good direction plays a significant role here too.

      Schwartz was great and the closest we've ever gotten to Drummond since Drummond himself, but tbh that just makes me wish Paramount would've reached out to Drummond to begin with since they have deeper pockets than Sega. Plus Drummond under the kind of voice direction that Schwartz got to have would've been amazing.

      I don't really like Schwartz's voice; I think it's fine for the movie version of Sonic (who is a bit different and a more childish version of Sonic from what I've seen) but I don't think it really fits the game version. I'm not really keen on the idea of the movie having any kind of influence on the games or any offshoots of that though.

      I like Ben's voice a lot actually and feels its appropriately energetic for a character like Sonic.

      But movie Sonic is a decidedly more childish and immature take on the character that I I don't think would translate well without a better voice director.

      Ben had a great showing as movie Sonic; though emphasis on the "movie" there. Sonic has no chill in the movie so it's hard for me to hear him in any other version of Sonic. I'm not saying that movie Sonic is a bad take on the character, but it also really isn't like anything we've seen before. This really just makes me hesitant on hearing Ben's take outside of this. On the other hand, we've seen Roger's ability to encompass a wide a range of emotions as the character proper so, to me, it really is more of who's directing him at this point.

      Though, one thing I'm also not seeing many people bring up in this whole current VA discussion is cost. Paramount didn't just use Ben because he was a good fit for the role. He has a rather sizable name to him that carries weight on a movie poster for the causal movie going audience and not just fans (something that I sadly don't think any other Sonic VA has... well besides Jaleel). With that name also comes a sizable cost associated with getting him in the recording booth. I'm sorry, but I can't help but slightly chuckle a bit at the notion of current day Sega paying that much every single time they want to use their own mascot.

      I'd take Ben over Roger any day. I'm sure as an actor he can alter himself to fit an older more chill Sonic. I doubt he will move over to the games if he costs a lot but I'd be all for it.
