Default KH and subtitles

Yeah, that's one thing that's been bugging me and I don't think I am the only one.

What's with this weird tradition of KH having subtitles that can't be turned off whatsoever?
It's been persistent throughout the whole series and I just don't know why. Crisis Core did this too, for some reason.

Whenever there are subtitles, my eyes tend to automatically focus on them instead of the actual cutscene and it's really distracting. x.X

Why can't they put in a simple option that allows you to turn subs on or off?

I can't think of any good reason why the subs HAVE to be turned on the entire time. Can you?

Well, I like them the first time I play through a game because sometimes I don't understand if they mumble or I miss a word or something. Especially names and locations.

But I didn't realize you couldn't turn them off in KH. That's dumb. I agree with you that they are distracting.

Yeah, unless its a game like Xenosaga I in which the lips don't even pretend to match what is being said, I turn them off. (And I think I still turned them off in XS anyway because teh game was already like a movie, I wanted to keep the atmosphere going.)

That said...I must not have ever though to bother with KH's because I was unaware they had to be turned on, or least I didn't remember.

He's saying they're always on in KH games. They don't have to be "turned on". Did you mistype or do I not get what you mean?

Little bit of both, I mean that they had to be on, as in always on. But I said it awkwardly anyway.

To miss including such a basic function... SHAMEFUL.

It's really weird imo. It's just a nitpick, but I'm still curious as to what their reasoning was for excluding something as basic as this. :huh2:

Same goes for Crisis Core. It's the only FF game that doesn't allow you to disable subs. It's just so...random.

Huh. I honestly never noticed that. I wonder if it was an intentional thing or just an oversight.

The only game I can think of I willingly kept it on was for XII, and that's because half the time it seemed like you could barely hear them when they talked. Could've been my TV though
Nah, XII did have some bad audio compression that made the characters sound like talking into a can. >.<
