I like how you talk about objectivity and then you set demands for what would be required for something to be claimed as such - whether just an attempt or not

There's no way to establish what's objectively better - ever - and unique voices for every character certainly isn't any closer to that either. That's just something you - subjectively - think is highly important.

I do believe the majority prefers voice acting - but obviously it needs to be done reasonably well. Same goes for any text-based implementation.

I won't bother trying to prove it, though. If you really think there's a chance the majority prefers text-based games - then I won't get in the way.

But what the majority prefers has nothing to do with what's objectively better - so it's all very pointless.
