      Voice overs would have been welcome if they were done in the first place, but they weren't.

      I've always preferred reading my FF games, and the voices I imagine in my head are probably far better than any $10 an hour voice actor deliver lol.

      I mean if it's done RIGHT by a professional. You know how 90% of Japanese anime sounds better than the american counter parts? It's because (in my head) I think the Japanese take it far more serious, than when translated to english the producers / directors don't seem to take the game as serious, it always sounds "goofy" when done in english.

      Well, I voted for "detracted from the game", as I said, I'd rather leave some things to the imagination.

      10.00 an hr.. that's slave labor for voice actors..lol those guys are contracted, they make a few hundred per session and most sessions are about 4-8 hours long pending what they are doing.
      what makes american dubbing so hard is matching the voices up with the game since they were originally done for japanese voices.

      It was a below the belt shot @ the English voice actors they've always sounded cheesy to me. I mean, I WOULD NOT give them more than $10 if we were paying them based on quality, lol. Well not ALL of them. I did like Auron, and that old guy who gave us a tour in FFX in nearly every town (and a handful of others)

      And about the English voice actors, my point wasn't with the syncing up of the voices, but how it was delivered. Like take for Auron like I mentioned, he was amazing throughout the whole game, but as for Yuna or Rikku ..... meh. Don't get me wrong , I still LOVED both characters, but they could have been so much better. Those two voice actors did sound a bit better in X-2 I might add.

      But I'd still like to read the text, and than imagine the voices in my head. I'm sure if voice acting WERE done for a VIII remake it would be much better than previous games, since Square seems to always up the quality of voice acting maybe they could have an option of text OR voice acting in the menu, that way we can experience both.

      I really love these voice-covers, besides I can improve my listening skills as well as speaking skills. Great! I'm going to look for the videos on youtube.
