I would like to apologize for a previous post of mine that was a bit rude. It was late and I wasn't really paying attention.
However, I would like to agree with several other posts following mine concerning the matter. You can't claim something as an industry standard without proof to back it up. Even then it's mostly subjective as everyone has different tastes and opinions. For some games it works, for others not so much. For Banjo-Kazooie (and Yooka-Laylee), I believe it's the latter. For this type of I feel game text works better as most people will probably read it faster than the va's can speak it, meaning you get back to the game quicker. Which, for a 3D platformer, I think is really important.
