** The vorcha usually speak this way. They're the only species met so far to do so. This is justified in that their average lifespan is twenty years, if they're lucky: such short lives leave little time for them to become well-educated. Shepard does meet one or two well-spoken vorcha throughout the game, and even those that don't have a great grasp of Basic are not necessarily stupid, as seen by the vorcha soldier speaking to a human soldier in the third game's ''Citadel'' DLC, who displays an impressive understanding of tactics and multiplayer mechanics.

Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/Bioshock'': Dr. Suchong speaks this way, including referring to himself in the third person (Chinese languages tend to lack articles, but this is not a typical result in new English speakers). Dr. Tenenbaum, in contrast, has a Russian accent but her grammar is perfectly fine.

** Also, the passive voice is spoken in by Emps in ''UltimaVII''.
** In ''{{Ultima Underworld}}'', The Stygian Abyss, the goblins are a perfect example for this (especially the Green Goblins except for their king). Try to trade with one of them and make an offer he rejects. The answer: "No, I no like!"

Added DiffLines:

** In the [[{{Woolseyism}} English localization]], that is. In the original Japanese, ''Grego'' ([[DubNameChange as he's known there]]) speaks in a somewhat rough-and-tumble manner befitting a globetrotting mercenary {{Oyaji}}, but is perfectly fluent in whatever the world's language is.

* ''{{Warcraft}}'':
** In this video game series, the "primitive" language is actually named "Low Common" in Warcraft [=DnD=] - implicitly there's a "low" form of many other languages, as well. ''WorldOfWarcraft'' actually subverts this at one point:

* ''{{Runescape}}'': The Ogres speak a vaguely Jamaican accent, which is commented on multiple times. Some Ogres that have lived with humans speak grammatically correct, albeit short, sentences. They still use lots of slang, making some sentences almost unreadable. The goblins, though speak in a 'stupid' way with incorrect grammar. In an inversion of this trope, they are revealed to be very smart, but most tribes of goblins care more about warfare and physical strength than science, art, and intellectuality.

* ''VideoGame/{{Homeworld}}: Cataclysm'': The [[HiveQueen Beast]] starts by speaking in broken English, and has an...idiosyncratic method of speech when controlled by the player. However, as the campaign goes on and the Beast adapts and learns, it finally speaks to the captain as an equal.
