What makes a good game great? 

Oftentimes its attention to details, like voice acting, that will turn a good game into a blockbuster.

Troy Baker is the new voice of the Joker in Batman: Arkham Origins, and his participation bodes well for this 75 year old franchise. Troy has already helped two of the biggest games of 2013 become the leading contenders for game of the year. He was the voice actor for Joel in the mega-hit The Last of Us AND Booker DeWitt in BioShock Infinite.

At the New York Comic-Con, Troy provided an impromptu performance of his new role as Joker in Batman: Arkham Origins. The performance is a must see.

As Troy says, the monologue provides “one of the best cross-sections of who the Joker is.”

Troy takes over the role of the Joker from Mark Hamil (Yes, Luke Skywalker).

Are you too “sold” after watching the video? Thinking of playing Batman: Arkham Origins? And what do you think of Troy Baker? Could he top Mark Hamil, Heath Ledger, Jack Nicholson, or Cesar Romero as the Joker. Comment below.

Troy Baker has a very impressive list of roles in Video Games, Anime, and Movies. At just 37 years of age, his best performances may be yet to come. Check out all his roles at

I've been with JA in one capacity or other since 2003. I'm currently website administrator. I'm also a digital artist (my avatar is one of my creations). I write reviews and articles, create graphics and basically help tend the site. It's work I enjoy very much. I love playing games of all kinds, but adventure and RPGs are my favorites (particularly scary/dark/unsettling ones). At the top of my list are The Cat Lady, The Longest Journey, Dreamfall, Still Life (first one only), Scratches and Culpa Innata. I'm a dyed-in-the-wool recluse and prefer the company of animals, hardware and ghosts to human beings (no offense). And no bio would be complete without my saying that I do NOT care for phones of ANY sort. Further, I think Dell computers are garbage and that Microsoft has become megalomaniacal.
