I dont mind at all. on the other hand, i was always annoyed when there was only dubbing in a game and not an option for the original speech with subs. In general, I am a believer that the original version is the true version. If you can read Homer, Shakespeare, Kafka in the original rather than the translation (which looses quite a lot of the nuances), why not do it? With games and movies, its the same or more because half of the character is the voice actor. Try going to Germany/Italy/Spain and watch a Hollywood movie and instead of the classic voice of James Earl Jones or Tom Hanks, you hear something completely off. So i do not mind if the dev goes the extra mile to dub a game but i definitely want to have the original with subs for me.
