It’s 2018 and it is quite standard for many games to come with a variety of options to choose from, like graphics, gameplay, audio, accessibility and other sets of specific settings. With the reception of both Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy and Spyro Reignited Trilogy, this is a curious case of Activision’s lack of commitment or rather a policy that we do not know of that does not enforce the inclusion of such details options for players to utilize.
Although Spyro from the beginning has more dialogue and has subtitles to read in most cases, the option to enable or disable isn’t available and some places do not feature subtitles outside of dialogue boxes, much like in the original releases. For Crash, the original games also did not feature subtitles and in N. Sane, that was never added and was never addressed officially.
In response to BubbleButt64’s ResetERA thread regarding the lack of subtitles in these Activision titles, I thought it was fitting to have a poll/discussion and see what everyone following the blog thinks of this issue.
