Don't look at me, I would go nuts over Shintani Ryoko if she ever voice acted for novel games :V

There are visual novels I wouldn't want to see without voices, and there are ones, I wouldn't want to see with voices.
In my opinion, it depends heavily on the kind of novel. For instance, as mentioned before, a voiced Kana ~imouto~ would be... well, I'd prefer without. On the other side, I enjoy VA in more light-hearted ADVs.

All in all, I don't necesserally need voices - but for some genres it's nice to have them and can deepen the 'feel'.

自分でノベルゲームを作ってわかったのですが、TVアニメやドラマは基本、舞台の「台本」と同じで、セリフのみで構成されています。しかし、ノベルゲームって小説のセリフ部分だけ声優が声を当てている感覚・・・わかりますかね?だから声がある事に違和感を感じてしまいます。
I understand because I've made my own novel games, but TV anime and Drama are basically comprised of a "script" just like that for a play. However, novel games feel like it's just the voices for the spoken lines in a novel...Do you understand? That's why it feels off when there are voices.

以前、アリスソフトの低価格ノベルエロゲ「妻みぐい2」では、Hシーンだけボイスあり、という低予算作成を逆手に取った音声の使い方をしていましたが、この決断は見事でした。Hシーンでのボイスは下半身に直結しているので非常に効果的、しかし、日常パートにまで全て音声を持ち込んだら作る手間と録音にお金がかかるので使わない。実際、プレイしてまったく違和感もありませんでしたし。
Before, in the low-price game Tumamigui 2, a low budget novel eroge by Alicesoft, they countered by making use of voices only for the H-scenes, and this decision was splendid. Having voices for the H-scenes goes directly to the crotch, and was extremely effective, however if they had voices even for the everyday-part, it would have taken time to create and money for recording, so they didn't. In actuality, when I played it, I didn't feel anything was off.

音声に関しては、一度録音してしまうとシナリオの修正が後からできない。テキストならチャチャっと直せる修正も録音直しなどが必要になるという。さらに、ノベルゲームって音声の量も多いので、メッセージ単位でデータを切り張り&リンクする作業も膨大になる。この辺も問題が起こりやすいかもしれません。
With regards to voicing, once you record something, you can no longer edit the scenario. With text you can fix it in a flash and update it with the sounds. Furthermore, the amount of vocals needed for novel games is large so the amount of labor for cutting, pasting, and linking a message worth of data is enormous. This might be why problems come up here so often.

最近、据え置きゲームがアクションゲームでもイベントシーンなどフルボイス標準になっていますけど「惰性や慣例でフルボイス化していないか?」ということも考えた方がいいですね。最初から割り切って無いのであれば、ユーザーはテキストだけでも脳内で十分声を想像できます。
 この業界「他社がやっているから」という理由で、費用対価をよく考えずに追随することが、開発費の高騰を 招いているところがありますから。
Lately I've been putting aside even action games where the event scenes are typically full voice, but we should probably think about, "Are they just full voiced out of precedent and habit?" They weren't there at all in the beginning, so users should be able to imagine the voices well enough from just the text.

まあ、PCからコンシューマ移植の際、差別化として売りにするのは間違っていないとは思いますが。それな ら追加シナリオの方がうれしいけどなあ・・・
Well, when it's ported from PC to the consumers it's probably to boost sales by distinguishing it, but if that's case, I'd be happier if they added scenarios...

There you go. a quick, unchecked trans, but. and you can see where I snickered at.

Hahah! The phrase "directly to the crotch" Has never been used in a less painful context.

You can say I have no imagination, but I prefer having voices. It helps me imagine the scenes better. Of course, that's assuming we're talking about professional VAs...

I just like voices in general. For example, I really like listening to drama CDs.
