New one. I wouldn't mind having the old one back, but I prefer this new, huskier sound of her voice.

I honestly can't decide. I really like both voices.

I really liked the old one, and was really disappointed when they changed it. Though by the end of book 1 I just got used it.

I like the old one better, but decided to think of the new voice belongs to a new Zoe. After all, she is a lot different Chapters.

I like both voices. From a linguistic perspective though I'd guess that the new voice is more convincing, when you consider how British English is likely to change in two centuries: the old voice was quite conservative linguistically. I don't think we can expect any intervocalic plosives to survive glottalisation - not in the Island Kingdom anyway.

Which do you prefer, Zoe's original voice or new voice?

I like them both.

I can't pick one over the other. I loved the original voice (I'll admit to developing a bit of a crush on Zoë :wub:)  so I was a bit disappointed when I heard the original voice actress wasn't returning. That being said, I actually really like the new one as well  (and I still love Zoë :wub:) so, like I said, I really can't pick one over the other. Both are great!

Not voting either because unfortunately, there's no "I like them both" option.

I think I like the original better, but that may be because it's the original. I rather like the new one as well.

If the Hit the Road voices of Sam & Max were "the original", how many of Telltale's episodes had to pass before the new ones were accepted as the "new original"? :)

I was thinking "How can people like the new voice better than the old one? The old one was way better!".... but the I realized I was thinking about the Spanish voice, which, to me, is way better than both old and new english voices.

 

But listening the old english voice I certainly like the new one a lot more than the old english voice.

 

TL:DR spanish > new english > old english

Ellie Conrad Leigh is a great VA and I'll hear no argument against it, but I just don't think her voice suits Zoë and I always felt it was just a little off. I think that had a lot to do with why I wasn't terribly fond of Zoë as a character before DFC. Now I really like her as a character and her voice is much more fitting.

I LOVE the new voice acting. It feels so... natural.
