Hi always on, as some times the voices seem to fade in and out.
In 15 Days I couldn't get the sound up to hear even with speakers so it must have been a bad recording.
Also when a game is in a language I don't speak but the sub titles are in English, otherwise couldn't play.
Yes sometimes the text runs out, when I'm trying so see what is going on and reading at the same time.

Always on. Like Becky, I like to know exactly what they are saying and sometimes I miss things when it's just audio. Or I just can't quite understand them sometimes.

But it's always a question with me when I install the game because they are a distraction from watching the action - characters during the scene. Still I turn them on because I don't want to miss anything. smile

Always on for me! English is not my first language, and I would have big troubles understanding everything without subtitles woozy

Thanks for all your replies. smile
I think I'll continue to keep subtitles on for new games, with (maybe) set to off for a repeat play of a game.

I always leave the subtitles on. For me it's not too distracting, let's me catch words that I might have missed, and gives one more benefit: at a glance I can recognize a character response that I've already gotten. In many games you can click through the rest of the response and move on. Without subtitles you'd have to listen a while longer before being sure the response is a repeat. Guess I'm a little impatient at times.

I prefer to have them off unless a character is difficult to understand.

I like to play with subtitles on - the downside for me is I don't pay as much attention to the visuals of a scene but playing with them off I find myself distracted by the visuals & miss important info in the dialogue! smile
