All of them did a fine job in their own way, even though Michael was a bit more hammy than evil. Patrick Seitz and Douglas Rye are my favourites.

Alan Rickman as Dracula, perhaps? I think it could work.

It definitely comes down to between Douglas and Patrick. Douglas, however, sounds older, and a bit more European, if that makes any sense. He also has a naturally deep, chilling voice while Patrick sounds a bit forced at times.

It's a real shame they replaced Douglas for future Castlevania games.

Douglas Cao Cao Rye is the best, the first time I heard him I knew he would be the best Dracula

@HienFan And it matches well with Robert Belgrade's Alucard(incidentally both voiced Cao Cao)

Seitz and Rye are easily the best here, but Seitz edges out as my favorite for me.

It's a shame Patrick and Douglas aren't playing Drac anymore. Robert is ok, but he sounds too much like Durza (Eragon). Douglas is my favorite however, I think the accent suits Dracula best given that he orginates from Transylvania (I think).

Patrick Seitz and Douglas Rye FTW!!! Both are incredibly intimidating and have voices that scream pure evil. Michael G is incredibly hammy in the role and hard to take seriously, but is also incredibly fun to listen to! Robert Carlyle has a good voice for the role, and it does show potential. I don't know, I'd probably have to hear more of it. Garry Chalk... no comment.

1. Douglas Rye - Sounds the most natural, deep, and powerful in the role. Just one clip of that voice and I can tell that this is Count Dracula!

2. Patrick Seitz - He's the favorite in the poll, but I think he lacks a bit of something that Douglas had. I get "evil vampire" from his take, but there's less European nobleman charm. Still a fantastic villain performance, though.

3. Robert Carlyle - It's a great fit, but I'd rather Dracula not sound like Durza the Shade from the Eragon movie.

4. Michael G - He is not intimidating, just a hammy blowhard.

5. Garry Chalk - A cartoony, stereotypical Bela Lugosi impression for this butchered portrayal.

I just realized something out of pure boredom!

If Michael G sounded more like the voice he used for Harry, he'd sound almost exactly like Patrick Seitz's take on Dracula.

...Minus the acting ability.

@Metabad Yeah, if he deepened his Harry voice a little he would sound quite a bit like Patrick Seitz.

Hey, where's Peter Stormare from The Batman vs. Dracula?

@loredragonmaster ...this is for the Dracula from the Castlevania series.

@NCZ What about Bela Lee and Christopher Lugosi?

Douglas Rye. I wish Michael G would have stuck with voice acting, he has a great hammy voice and I think he could've gotten good. He was passable as Harry from Silent Hill as well, he could've improved a lot.

Douglas Rye, for sure. Though for Gabriel's Dracula, Robert Carlyle did a good job.

Well anyways, I like Douglas Rye the most, with Patrick Seitz as a very close second and Scott McCulloch's performance is pretty funny.
said at 12:21 AM on Mon Jan 23 2012
@Metabad Whoops, I mean Michael G is pretty funny.

Wait, what?

Garry Chalk has 4294967295 votes?


I mean he's not a bad voice actor, but for Dracula...

Wow, I'm at a loss for words, either the poll was hacked or some people REALLY have a LOT of time on their hands.

@Metabad Definitely hacked. That is absurd.
said at 2:31 PM on Sun Jul 31 2011
@NCZ Yeah, oh well. At least its fixed.
said at 7:05 PM on Tue Mar 22 2011
Seitz and McCulloch for the win in either case
