Let's decide why Claude doesn't speak!

My answer would be 'Because He Doesn't Have a Tongue'.

He's a man of few (or should I say, NO) words. In other words, he doesn't like to talk. His actions speak for him.

It has been confirmed that Claude can talk years ago in a Facebook app that Rockstar made. This was Claude's description:

"strong and silent type", "man of few words" both suggest that he doesn't talk much, so he can talk.

Yeah he probably could talk if he wanted to, could just bill it down to a sore throat

^ That is why my vote goes for "Other" - which in my case is:
"Because he doesn't need to" OR
"Because he's to cool to speak"

Q: Why Doesn't Claude Speak?
A: Because R* weren't ready to give their protagonist a voice. In addition they saved money and time on writing and recording extra dialogue.

Play other games and you'll see that not every protagonist has voice. Gordon Freeman for example. It has nothing to do with being a mute, missing body parts or blood thirsty unicorns on LSD.

This. You can't really decide another reason to what Rockstar have already confirmed confused.gif
Good effort nonetheless

Well, Claude just simply doesn't need to speak. His actions speak for him.

^Exactly. Not all Video Game Characters have to speak to be good and Claude is the perfect example. icon14.gif

He's a mute, and I wouldn't want him any other way. He is a mystery. Makes you wonder why he is so quiet. It adds more to his character, and strangely gives him more character & personality.

As I pointed out above, he's not a mute. Also, the reason why he doesn't have a voice was explained by Rockstar in the Q&A they did a while ago.

I think people are taking this topic a little too seriously....these are just silly excuses as to why he doesn't speak.

Most know the real reason is Rockstar found it difficult and/or expensive to do it and then made him not speak. I don't think this topic so much a serious discussion as it might have been in the past, all we know is that he doesn't talk because Rockstar chose to give him no voice.....it's fine for fans to come up with their own reason why he doesn't speak as Rockstar have not given an IN GAME CANNON reason for him not too...just a technical real life problem they didn't overcome. And by San Andreas, they could have easily given him a voice...but of course to keep him in character they kept him silent.

If they aren't going to come up with a in game cannon reason for him being silent, then I think fans are free to make up any reason for it.

Now I'm being serious....

You must mean canon. The ingame reason for his silence would be that Claude is a "strong and silent type". That's a characteristic of his personality.

Yeah, you could say he is the strong and silent type....very silent. But I like some peoples other reasonings sometimes too, that may be his personality...but even people who are like that can have other reasons to never speak.

Interesting. It doesn't appear that Rockstar has explicitly said "Yes, he is physically able to speak" or "No, he's not a mute". Maybe that's for the sake of everyone who insists that he IS a mute?

Claude does talk, however he chooses not too because its simple, hes so f*cking bad ass and it makes him Superior to everyone else, he doesnt need to say a word to get things done, if he doesn't like you, he kills you. Simple as that, hell he even kills the people he likes. He kills everyone probably if the game allowed him too. This is why Claude is the best GTA character, I wish to play as him again in a future Grand Theft Auto. wink.gif )

He resembles Clint Eastwood and the no name, thus his name Claude isnt really important to him or his friends, his voice sounds alot like Christian Bale's Batman.

That would be a terrible voice to have

>_>

I dunno if he kills the people he likes...I dunno if he likes anybody....after Catalina betrayed him I think his respect for anybody but himself went out the window. He only killed former partners because it brought him closer to Catalina for revenge....if it wouldn't benefit him, or if he didn't think it would benefit him, he wouldn't do it. After GTA 3 he doesn't need to get revenge on anybody...so maybe he does make more real friends.

I actually think it's kind of notable that Claude doesn't speak because everyone thinks he's just a lackey and it works for him because no one finds him threatening. That is, at least, until Maria screws it up.

This.

Story reason: He was like that guy who rarely speaks, the only times he really says anything is off-screen.

But the real reason is quoted above.

Just as @Lux said - Rockstar themselves already explained this long time ago so I think that it's needless to discuss it anymore.

I still stand by the fact that claude did infact talk in an early trailer. R* just probably does not want to admit it after so long saying he is a mute, but I believe that possibly they removed his voice overs soon after that trailer.

^ No, that trailer contained a voice sample from GTA2. They never had a voice actor for Claude because they never planned for him to talk to begin with.
