Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
Michael Hollick is the voice of Niko Bellic in Grand Theft Auto 4. I think the game grossed about a half billion dollars in the first week. The game has been rumoured (or reported, I don't know) to cost $100 million to make. Mr. Hollick is being paid $100,000 over 15 months.
“Obviously I’m incredibly thankful to Rockstar for the opportunity to be in this game when I was just a nobody, an unknown quantity,” Mr. Hollick, 35, said last week...“But it’s tough, when you see Grand Theft Auto IV out there as the biggest thing going right now, when they’re making hundreds of millions of dollars, and we don’t see any of it.
He is the voice of Niko Bellic and, arguably, added much of who Niko is as a character. But what about the animators, writers, people doing mo-cap, programmers, and the scores of other people, including the other actors, who worked on GTA4? Don't they equally or more so determine who Niko is? How do you quantify someones contribution to something this big?
Please keep this to video games. A SAG vs WGA vs DGA vs MPAA is hairy enough as is.
