Why does every FF game always have such iffy English translations? For a franchise that's one of the most popular all of time, that sure feels lazy.

That's correct though. It's old English.

None of the Viera speak old English.

>XII
>bad translation
You just found a typo, calm down. XII probably has the best translation out of all of them. And best voice acting. And best everything.

This educational system has failed when people who speak English don't know it when they see it.

>>323200370
>best voice acting
*awkward pause in dialogue*

Seriously though, I couldn't stand most of the characters not named Balthier, Gabranth and Cid.
>>
>>323200749
Why is everyone come in Old English
>>
>>323200749
That is early modern english at best. Even middle english is hard to read.
See >>323200515
>>
>>323197490
no its not, this is old english
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dYsD4DPg4ls
its not middle english either, its just a dialect of plain old english
>>
>>323201302
Try not confuse old English with Old English. "old" as in archaic.

It was when grammar followed what the French call vandertramp association. You "are" whatever you were doing.
>>
>>323202016
When something is called Old English it is annoying to pretend you weren't ignorant of it when you say "old English."
>>
>>323202540
Some of us actually went to school, you realize.
>>
>>323202870
Lot of good that did you, should've gone to google instead.
