I always use subs when they are available, as I don't really care for the voicing in videogames, and after all this time still feel text based conversations in games was good enough. That being said games don't really have a non voicing option available anymore (unless the sound is turned off) so if given the choice between voices I will always choose the japanese vocal track (I understand enough of the language to have played many an import back on the SNES and PS1) as the quality of the voiceacting tends to be higher than the english dub imo , when both are present.

Many thanks to RaveNScythe18
for the awesome platcard!!!
Never play without them if its an option. I can never hear the people talking in almost anygame I swear and if you turn it up and theres a gunshot or SFX in the game it will blow your dam speakers out lol but still can barely hear the people talk!! drives me nuts.
It's often quicker to read than listen to NPCs drone on and on and on...
This. I always have subs for RPGs, where dialogue can actually be important. For more action-based games I leave them off, because I find myself paying far too much attention to the subtitles instead of watching what is going on in the game.
Always subtitles when an option. I actually get irked when there isn't an option in a game for them. I find it easier to follow and helps articulate things better, especially when the voice acting/accents/general pronunciation is dreadful.
It's also fun for me to pick out the misspelling and grammatical errors that occur in subtitles. You'd think that they would be rare, but nope, I'd say 95% of games bastardize the language at one point or another.
