Without them we probably wouldn't have gotten this huge number of different English dubs, including the Westwood/Blue Water/Big Green dubs which were created as a reaction against them.
If they couldn't have afforded experienced VA's and had to resort to use a bunch of nobodies, then maybe they should have never gotten the rights to this franchise. What should have been done was giving the rights to a company that could afford experienced VA's, get good translations, etc...
Also, I'm curious. If you don't like Ocean at all, then what the fuck are you even doing here, commentating on a thread about a dub that has voice actors you don't like? At least Scsigs and Mewzard actually like them as actors even if they don't care for the Ocean dubs of this franchise. If I were you, I'd piss off from this thread because I don't see any reason for people who don't like these voice actors to be in this thread, unless you are trying to change your mind on them which I doubt you'll ever do.
But whatever, if you want to keep on commentating on this thread, then fine by me.
