    I would rather listen to Nimoy saying "Beep. Beep. Beep." than having Bean reading about how the Roman Empire collapsed due to air conditioning, Mount Kilimanjaro lacking Wi-Fi, and other such atrocities.

    It's interesting to hear Bean narrate, but only once. Afterwards, I get annoyed.

    I disabled all voices in-game; if I want to hear leader voices, there's always here: https://soundcloud.com/user-137283764/sets

    I know a mod for civ 5 was made to add in Leonard Nimoy quotes, hasn't been done for Civ 6 to my knowledge. Civ 6 is the one where its needed! I didn't have a problem with Civ 5 quotes, quite liked the horseback riding one.

    For Civilization VII I'm hoping Firaxis gets Logan Cunningham (Bastion, Transistor, Pyre). He's the most underrated voice actor in games.

    Beep beep beep was classic. Nimoy in cIV was really the icing on the cake. :goodjob:

    I do like the Mount Kilimanjaro one, though. It is poking fun at someone dependent on technology and it is hilarious. :D

    What really annoys me about Sean Bean's voicework is how frequently he mispronounces names.. Some times I can just picture him as Ash from Evil Dead; Klaatu, Barada, N......

    I always see Sean as Sharpe and so I forgive him, he is just a Napoleonic footslogger with no education.
    I think I would tire of anyone saying the same thing over and over, to me its a sonic attack of sorts so I just have to turn it off.

    Quiet your filthy mouths! Sean Bean is going to be my husband. I will make him so happy. Once he's safe in my basement, we will never need anything again.

    I've played without any sounds for a while now, usually listening to radio instead. The only negative is that you don't hear the barbarian camp spawn sound.

    There is a speech volume in the audio options. Doesn't that mute the narrator? Or does that only/also mute the conversations of leaders?

    Edit: I tried it out. The speech volume mutes/sets the volume of both the leaders and the narrator (loading a game and quotes).

    I guess I find Yorkshire accents wearying.

    Maybe we can get Morgan Freeman, James Earl Jones, Helen Mirren, or David Attenborough for Civ VII.

    But I doubt it. Leonard Nimoy was such a treasure. Civ V's narrator wasn't bad either--his delivery was better than Sean's (with all due apologies to Lord Stark).

    Civ 7 should use Smoggies only.

    Starcraft Adjutant voice actor ladies. So calm and peaceful. Remove the robo-voice digitizer and call them gold.

    James Earl Jones is still one of my favorite male voices. Morgan Freeman is always nice as well. Captain Sisko is always nice as well, but I think he's retired.

    For female voices, I'm not sure any stand out. I always like Jennifer Hale of course. I can't think of any others at the moment.

    We could always get the computer voice that says Turn Complete from SMAC. :lol:
