Donal Gibson As Mad Max... Maybe?
Having a character with a believable presence is what a lot of us gamers connect with the most. With the upcoming game Mad Max there is no conclusive evidence as to who will be giving us the performance we all want. In the film which this game is being adapted from, Mad Max is played by the actor Mel Gibson. But who would have thought that his brother might just be playing as Max in the game?
As a lot of us know, it was an exciting day to hear that Max would be confirmed to have an Australian accent. We were blessed by the gaming gods as fans when CEO of Avalanche, Christofer Sundberg, tweeted to us fans for our outcry.
Attn. fans who want Max to have an Aussie accent in #MadMaxGame : It shall be so. We admire your loyalty. You have been heard.— Christofer Sundberg (@CHSundberg) July 2, 2013
And with the great demo sent over to ausgamers, Donal just fits that part so well. With a gritty and dark voice applied to Max, it fits the setting in the dramatic future wasteland. I say why not keep it in the family, let Donal voice Max.
Check out the demo for yourself here. If you have someone better in mind, let me know! It'd be great to see who else they could possibly cast for the voice role in Mad Max.
