    He has a clear voice. I think we need someone with deep and more distinct voice that resembles an old man. A voice that is associated with wisdom, age etc.

    We've had that because that is how it should be done. Though, voice is one thing; the narrator skills (the way quotes are read) is the other — as in the case of Civ5 :)

    There are some of this board who do no like his narration. I fully expect a new narrator so my vote is with Keith David ; as he has something a lot of other narrators don't have. His relevant work narrating Egypt's Golden Empire lends his voice gravitas.

    Anyways there are a lot of good narrators out there working. I will say who I don't want.

    Donald Sutherland.

    I was always hoping that Sir Christopher Lee would get this job. Sadly that is not to be.

    This might sound strange, but I think Meryl Streep would be a nice narrator ^^

    EDIT: Or Viola Davis, or Christine Baranski

    I'd prefer Michael Hogan. He's a great voice actor.

    and when you research techs for Army corps allowing you to combine your units, he should do the Voltron narration.

    Woah! That would be awesome! Awesome enough to make me forget about the new cartoony style.

    Viola Davis would be a great choice. In fact, it'd be interesting to have a female narrator. What other voice actress could we suggest?

    Kate Mulgrew would be a good female voice. She has been terrific in the Dragon Age games.

    Shohreh Aghdashloo has an absolutely epic voice; she would be another great choice for narrator. Sara Kestelman would be another great choice, though perhaps a bit harsh for general narration.

    Marbozir :D because who doesn't like his voice? Or Michael Dorn to keep the Star Trek thing going. If Sir Patrick Stewart was chosen, I may never stop playing 6.
