I agree with Cyanea completely. I usually read the text in five seconds, then spend another thirty twiddling my thumbs through a ponderously slow voice over. Another point that should be made here is that in your mind's eye, the voice and inflection are always perfectly matched to the character, whereas most video game voice acting ranges from mediocre to downright awful. There are exceptions, like BioWare games and the voice work of Jennifer Hale, Mark Hamill, Keith David, Ron Perlman and others, but they are few and far between. Good voice acting adds to the immersion, but bad voice acting breaks it entirely. Voice is a great option for those who want it, but I generally prefer text.
