EDITOR'S OPINIONIn this Ys Voice Compare we have a little something for the good mayor of Redmont... EDGAR! We shall begin this with the TGCD version of Ys III with Cliff Harrington doing the voice of the Mayor of Redmont (whom was actually called Grady in this version). Anyways Cliff's voice for Edgar had a somewhat gruff Southern accent which I actually thought was fairly suiting for the role. Cliff's performance as the Mayor was probably one of the better performances in that version of the game (yeah I know that's not saying much) as Cliff's performance did have a good feel of friendliness but authoritative as well. Oh sure Cliff can sound a little flat at time but compared to how certain other characters can be he is a relatively mild offender so in other words Cliff's performance as the Mayor is one of the best performances in the TGCD version of Ys III and is pretty good in general.
Now for the PSP version of Ys III in which Mayor Edgar is voiced by Jamieson Price this time and Jamieson is a rather suitable alternative for the role here. Unlike his TGCD counterpart Jamieson does a older light British accent instead of a Southern one but it still does work for the role pretty well nevertheless. Anyways Jamieson's voice and performance for the role does suit a middle aged gentleman like Edgar as Jamieson's performance can go from kindly father figure to reasonable authority figure pretty well and his performance is a good example of the voice work in the PSP version of Ys III. Overall surprisingly enough I am actually not sure who to go with here as both of these guys did pretty well with the role in their own way.
