    The Arkham series has original voice actors, nothing wrong with that.

    How much is it worth ? Is it same like that of Batman(1966) series ? If it is real, then it would be a great fun to watch the animated characters in the original voices of the actors who performed their roles in this series.

    Kinda, it feels like a more updated version.

    There may be a hack out there for the PC version of Arkham City that alters a few textures and replaces a few sound clips.

    But I'd still like a full fledged game.

    The Arkham series is nothing like the campy stupidity of Adam West's Batman series though...

    lego batman is the closest you'd get currently, but it'd be rather interesting to see...

    there is one problem with a games based on the 1960s TV series, and its pretty glaring, while the actors for Batman and Robin are still alive most of the rest have died including most of the villains so you would need an extensive recast.

    for example the actors who played The Joker, The Pengiun, and one of the actors to play the Riddler are all dead ( Frank Gorshin) . one of three actress to play The Catwoman is dead. ( Eartha Kitt).

    as well as many others.

    I would love a game based on the series just the same.

    I agree with you Grimlock. This is a fact that most of the villains who played their role in role Batman series are no more in this world, regarding which the voice overs of the characters can be altered and this is also a fact that the real fun and interest will come if voices of original characters will be used, but sometimes we have to compromise.

    Huh? I can only presume one of two things here. Either you misread the post and meant that the games had the original voice actors from the animated series or you meant that it could be done since they used original voice actors and were unaware that they used voice actors that had previously voiced various characters.

    I'm going with the second and would go so far as to suggest that they could use voice actors to mimic the various actors from the original series. Though I would also be fine with a DLC that replaces Kevin Conroy (as much as I love what he brings to the character) with Adam West hamming it up.
