    There's a lot of red tape. Many of the voice actors will have clauses in their contracts that prohibit their voices being used anywhere else other than The Simpsons.

    It wouldn't be worth it for EA to bother regardless of how much money they've made from the game.

    EA if you do listen to us you've made way to much money on this game not to pay the royalties to have all the voices. I mean seriously the characters that do talk say 4-5 lines anyways it shouldn't cost that much for 4-5 lines for the ones that don't.

    This can be very tricky. Not only would the voice actors need to agree (which is most likely the easiest part), but the entities that hold their contracts would also have to agree. Once all the agreements are there, then you need to make sure that there are no conflicts (eg. what if Joe Montegna was under contract with Disney or something like that...NOT saying he is, but those are the kinds of things that get touchy).

    I have gotten used to the silent bunch (Milhouse, Fat Tony, Luann, Ms. Krabappel, etc..).

    Continuing along this topic, though, it would be nice to have a 'refresher' of sorts. Maybe give us a few different lines for some of the characters who currently ARE voiced.

    And who else here responds to "HI Everybody" when they tap on Dr. Nick...

    On a sort of related note - did you know that the actress that voiced/sang as Snow White for Disney signed a contract that forbade her to ever do voiceover work for another company?

    I didn't even notice some didn't have voices for a while cause I'm so used to hearing their voices as a die hard simpsons fan that I still hear them when I read their text

    That's known as schizophrenia :)

    Well for me it **** me off. How would you feel if you where playing GTA V and only Michael talked and not Franklin and Trevor? Keep in mind you pay once for GTA V and you pay so many times to buy donuts for this game if you do buy donuts.

    It would be nice if they did. Especially PAID characters should be voiced.
