    Dr. Freeman's voice wasn't necessary to build the world of Half-Life, and they actually drew attention to the fact that he was essentially a mime standing in for the player. Check out Freeman's Mind if you want to see a hilarious take on Dr. Freeman. CoD: Ghosts wasn't nearly self-aware enough to pull off something like that, so instead we get Logan, who would be considered a functional mute at best in the real world and who'd be pulled from any combat zone on the planet for not communicating his position to fellow operatives.
