Mr. Blum has always been one of my favorite voice actors, and it was only a matter of time before he got recognition for his extensive work in the game industry. Hilariously enough, I just spotted his voice as a guard while playing the 2009 "Chronicles of Riddick" game a few minutes ago. xD

Jennifer Hale must be #2 then, because they're both terribly over-used in games (and stuff in general)

the guy does enough work he deserves credit for it. really.

... and amusingly enough I'm just finishing up a game he did voicework in, even tho I've barely been playing games with voicework in them lately. I swear, in Suikoden IV some of the flaws were tolerable because of some of the voicework in it, and his work in it was damn good.

261 video game credits is huge. But what about the HUNDREDS of anime VO credits he has? He has at LEAST that many, if not far more.

And besides, he's T.O.M.!!!!!!!

261 credited appearances? Since hardly any games actually seem to credit voice actors I wonder how many that makes in total..?
