"It’s all voice acting whether you’re doing an animated series or a video game, or any of those kind of jobs,” Lowenthal said. "They all have their different techniques. For video games, you’re in a booth, by yourself. Only on one or two occasions ever have I gotten to record with other actors at the same time for a video game. I guess it’s just more efficient for them to do one character at a time.”

Lowenthal said the workload on a video game voice project is faster, and can be harder on the voice, as there are multiple yells and grunts to record.

"Usually for a video game, you show up on the day of, and you get right to it,” Lowenthal said. "The director may go over some basic things with you, so you have a little context. But then you’re in there, using your imagination to create the world that they’re trying to create in their game, you have to create that for yourself.”
