I know of at least one computer game, Wizardry Gold (an installation in the D&D inspired Wizardry series) that did
allow the player to input their own dialogue, and the NP Cs
would respond to it. The game is actually quite old, but the ability of the computer to come up with a reasonable response was actually fairly good. The problems in this case were that it made the game extremely difficult
, since it was often hard to think of something appropriate to say
, and it was even harder to give NP Cs
distinct personalities with which they could respond.
Related trope idea: games and possibly old cartoons where all the characters are mimes, and where the story is told entirely through visuals instead of text/dialog. The original Sonic the Hedgehog
series, the intro to Super Mario World
, Another World
and LEGO Star Wars
are all examples. —Document N

Does Kirby count? He never talks in his games.
Okay, this is not a video game which is why I'm checking before adding but Gone-Away World
, a novel by Nick Harkaway features an entire troupe of heroic mimes. Literally. If not here, where?
