The river doesn't move. It doesn't flow. It's been leaded by snider men to make a profit from the poor. Don't want to hear those vile trumpets anymore.

I hate bad voice acting more because it makes me want to hunt down the person who did it and beat their ass (Prime Example: Vaan's voice actor in FF12 because of his vocal frying). Bad writing I can overlook if I don't care about the story anyway, which has been happening with increasing frequency lately.

Bad writing. Bad VA you can overlook if it's well-written, but no matter how great a voice-actor might be, they can't save a game with a crummy plot, crummy dialogue, or poor pacing.

Bad writing. I can always turn off the sound and listen to something else. Which is what I normally do.

"My face is tired." Pretty much covers both bad writing and bad voice acting, not to mention facial animation.

"Hope this isn't Chris's blood"

Bad voice acting can often be hilarious.

Well if it's a game focused on story, then bad writing is worse.

If it's a game focused on gameplay and level design and mechanics, then voice acting is worse.
