Do you think Claude should have had a voice?

Rockstar has said they deliberately left Claude mute to focus their creative resources on things other than a main character with personality. Paraphrasing, but that was it.

 

The story would be quite different. Claude would need to have reasons to do the things he does; as it is he's sorta just dumb muscle doing work for people higher up in the hopes they'll lead him to Catalina, or so it seems.

 

It always bugged me that he just watched Catalina and Miguel talking to Curly Bob from a distance, instead of busting up their little party. Salvatore would have made him on the spot.

No, a simple dangerous man taking orders and doing them without a word coming out makes a very

rememberable and unique character in it's own way especially the way he walks.

Yes, me too. Also he spares their lives for a second time on the construction site. So much missed opportunities.

I don't think so. As 3 users above me stated, the story would be different (albeit still in a same content). I think Claude is perfect as a "Silent Killer".

His inability to speak actually adds to his character if any thing. I like to go over what claude sounds like in my head and I like to think he sounds alot like Bobcat Goldthwait

I would have loved that. I think he’d ask like “So what do you need/want me to do?” It would also make cutscenes livelier (like w/CJ). For example, I’d love to have heard Claude and Ray argue in “Plaster Blaster.”

No. Lack of voice makes him unique. I'd rather not have a claude creaming about getting shot. That's just irritating after awhile.

It would have been cool to hear him speak like Tommy Vercetti.

Best thing about Claude is that he doesn't run his mouth nonstop.

A. Yes, he should have

B. It's good that he didn't. It made a great game.

I like that he didn't. He was very reserved. Niko was about on the same page as Claude as far as being vocal goes. Niko got his point across.. but not in a way that's overly vocal. Now that I'm playing GTAO (my 'parents' are Claude and Misty) I have found it very awesome that my character doesn't speak either. Makes it much more of an homage to Claude.

Claude doesn't need a voice, all he needs to is end his ex-girlfriend's life.

I like him without the voice. He's like a cat, you never know what he's thinking.

I like it better when he is silent. It fits him so well.

 

If they gave Claude a voice, I probably would sigh a bit in disappointment. Especially if he starts asking "What's a paladin?" or starts saying "Great! I can't wait to bomb some Dodongos!".

 

Yeah... I think it's better to leave Claude silent...

claude silence adds to his character as a dangerous man, but i think it would be cool if he has a voice with a slightly heavy tone.

Maybe if GTA III was a newer game, I'm sure R* could have figured out a lot of ways to make him express something without talking. A character in any form of art can express something just by the way he looks, talks, walks, acts, etc. But in a 2001 game, it's very hard to see all these representations. So, let's say GTA III is PS4 release, I would have loved to see a mute Claude by today standards.

Nah suppose the va sucked or he was too "whiny". I like Claude as a strong silent killer who will do any job as long as it pays. Although now that everyone mentions it it is a plot hole why he didn't kill catalina while tailing the leone rat.

In the eyes of an revolutionary perspective of blowing away millions of people around the world with its 3D sandbox, why the hell would we need this hired grunt to have a 'voice'. That would just take away the idiosyncratic traits of this guy.

 

Heck, I would've not minded him retaining his 'Fido' nickname as his main identifier.

Nah I love him just as he is. A remorseless killer who doesn't speak a word.
