You must be joking.
In a game that is supposed to encourage you to interact with as much stuff as possible in as many ways as possible, the idea that the voice that narrates those interactions should speak as slooooooooowwwwwwwwlllllllllyyyyyyy as humanly possible and in an awkward sounding accent is utterly absurd. I would rather shave my genitals with a cheese grater than play GK1 with the narrator voice turned on. Thank God they included an option to turn it off and allow the other voices to keep playing. That tells me that someone on the development team understood how bad it was, and that a fair number of players would hate it, because no other Sierra game I can think of has included an option to turn off JUST the narrator voice.
And yes, English is my first language.
I know I'm not alone on this. I've spoken to much bigger GK fans than me who can't stand the narrator voice either. Different strokes for different folks though.
