Archer, Asura, Kariya are his best roles for sure. XD

Happy Birthday Liam! Thanks for being both ridiculously handsome both voice and looks!

Happy birthday to you mate. I laughed since it's also my little bro's birthday as well.

Happy Birthday Liam, Great job as Nightcrawler, Asura, Lloyd, Inigo, Shin and Archer!

Happy birthday, Liam.

Gaara is his best role IMO. But I also liked his Inigo, Nightcrawler, Asura and Ieyasu Tokugawa.

Dr Kenzo Tenma 1 of the best characters i've heard in anime and all credit to Liam for that, i also heard he was the voice director for The Last of us. One of the best games I've played in such a long time.

I think his deep voice is iconic, especially as Gaara and Nightcrawler, but I think he also needs more younger pitched voices once in a while similar to Jonathan Morris from Castlevania and Mugen from Samurai Champloo.

Well, he has a lot of great roles by the looks of it. I must hear more of him as I seem to end up listening to one of his not so great roles.
said at 11:54 AM on Thu Dec 12 2013
@Ross123 Unfortunately, sometimes he's directed in such a way where it sounds like he's just groaning constantly. He can do a simply amazing deep, powerful, mysterious voice; but sometimes the director's have him force it so much that it just sounds ridiculous, such as Silent Hill 2. Still, as I watch more of his work I can't help but completely admire how frickin' cool he can sound, and I'm sure if you see some of his work like in Darksiders you'll really grow to enjoy his voice-work.

@PsychicVoiceSpy I'll see Darksiders when I get a chance. One of the good roles (well I thought it was good) I heard was his Red Skull. He did well there.

I think if a Dragon Ball Z project was ever dubbed in L.A. nowadays he would make an awesome Vegeta. He's no stranger to voicing angry anti-hero's, characters of royalty or with a noble attitude, and so on. I would love to see that, actually. What do you guys think? Would he fit the character? Not that I would want Chris Sabat replaced, but it would be epic nonetheless, IMO.
said at 2:39 AM on Sat Nov 30 2013
@PsychicVoiceSpy I completely agree, mate!
He'd honestly be like the perfect middle ground between Brian Drummond & Chris Sabat.

I loved all his roles but my personal favorite will have to be gaara
said at 7:19 PM on Sat Nov 9 2013
@TheDark_Abyss actually I changed my mind my favorite would have to be akihiko from persona

The first time I heard Liam's actual voice I had to do a double take. I expected that he was a bass after seeing some of the anime he voiced in (like Gaara), boy was I surprised. Awesome work!

All I have to do is cover your big Mouth and you'll be dead, But that would be too Easy and too Boring.

Happy birthday, Liam! I'm so happy I got to hear you in Bleach, Ergo Proxy and Monster; you got me into anime and voice acting in general, but I rant; today's about YOU! And I hope you have/had a GREAT day!

I look forward to hearing you in future roles! :D

Happy Birthday Nightcrawler/Gaara/Kain Highwind/Caius Ballad/Archer. :)
said at 3:04 AM on Fri Apr 26 2013
I was so happy to hear Liam's voice come out for Kain in Final Fantasy Dissidia. I also liked his Ergo Proxy and Dr. Kenzo Tenma. When i was reading the manga I kept thinking he would make a great Dr. Tenma and it made my day when i turned on the anime and IT WAS HIM. lol

AH, his voice. It's, like... hard to describe how much I love his voice. I love his Nightcrawler and his Ukitake and his everything else, for that matter. It's amazing how different his voice can sound while still maintaining SOME sort of quality that says "Hey, I'm still Liam."

It's pretty funny how Liam's natural voice sounds nothing like the voice he uses for many of his characters.

My favourite roles of his are Miguel (love the Spanish accent he used!) and Kain.

@NCZ And now I can add Dist the Reaper to my favourites. He's without a doubt one of the game's best characters, and Liam's cackling, gleefully-evil performance is one of the biggest reasons why.

he is truly among the best VAs.

I'd have to say that although the voice acting for Overture (precisely the english version) was a bit decent or mixed for some people, I really think he did a good job as Ky. Seeing how this Guilty Gear installment takes place after X2 Accent Core Plus, I've actually noticed this character doing more than ever. Nonetheless, Both Troy Baker and Liam O'Brien did the respective voices of Sol Badguy and Ky Kiske as being overall average for me.
