How Do Video Game Voice Actors Look Like?

Many of us grew up with video games,and have now developed the ability to recognise the main characters by their voices alone.But we've hardly given credit to those that provided them.Some voice actors look like their in-game counterparts,others...not so much.Why don't you take a look and judge for yourself?

Gordon Freeman vs Some dude

Kratos vs Terence 'TC' Carson

Master Chief vs Steve Downes

Unless Bungie originally intended for MC to look that way,there is absolutely no match.
Nathan Drake,The Prince,Desmond Miles,almost every action game character ever vs Nolan North

Sam Fisher vs Michael Ironside

Michael Ironside is most famous for starring in Starship Troopers.
Niko Bellic vs Michael Hollick

Lara Croft vs Keeley Hawes

Keeley Hawes on the other hand is most famous for baring her body in the pages of The Sun UK's Page 3 section.

EDIT: With the Internet at my fingertips, it is embarassing to admit that I should have done a wee bit more research.The Page 3 model in question is actually Keeley Hazell, and not that woman as pictured. Keeley Hawes is a Brit actress perhaps well-known for starring in the hit BBC series Ashes to Ashes. Thank you for the tip,BloggingMolly.

Marcus Fenix vs John Di Maggio

Sonic vs Jason Anthony Griffith

Solid Snake vs David Hayter

David wrote the screenplays to X-Men 1 and 2 as well as one for the Watchmen movie,which was not chosen but had a few bits made the final cut.

Agent 47 vs David Bateson

Why the fuck was Timothy Olyphant picked over this guy?

Mario vs Charles Martinet
