Except that voice acting hasn't made games "better". That's completely subjective. Some people prefer it, some people don't.
So, you're saying Mass Effect would work better without spoken dialogue?

Seriously, though, I think that voice acting is better when done well - and it's done well in Skyrim. It's done well in Fallout 3 and it's done well in New Vegas.

I'm not sure whether I prefer Morrowind or Oblivion - as they're about equally bad.

Sure, with voice acting, you do lose a bit of verbosity - but you get a much, much more immersive experience out of it. I'm not a big fan of too much text - and I think Torment is a good example of text dominating the experience - turning it into something other than a game. Which is fine - but such a thing is better suited for books, I think.

That's just me, though.
