It's not the criticism the issue, but the online harassment of individuals. WHich does happen and has become expected to happen. Movies and games aren't made by individuals but groups of people taking decisions.
I'll argue VA is needed if a series want to put more emphasis in it's storytelling for a mainstream audience. Fact is most people have become used to hear their characters speak or act the part in games that have more cinematic storytelling, which this game has, and the most the Zelda series has ever had.
In regards to VA, I think that's still growing pains, considering the direction seems to be different in every language handling the same script but with different delivery. Japanese games have still to improve compared to western developers in regards to acting drama in their games. Since it can still feel very stilted.
