I have to have them on, unlike television, you can't rewind it if you miss something so I do not wish to misunderstand what a character says.

I prefer them off. Ideally the characters speak clearly enough and the audio has been handled well enough that I don't need floating text to shatter my immersion

I have them on even if the audio is handled properly there are many strange dialects the people sometimes use..just hard to understand what they're saying even if it's blasting..

I used to think I couldn't play without them on. That I couldn't hear the dialogue unless I could read it as well.
Then I actually turned it off and made the effort to hear what was being said and found I didn't need the subtitles at all.

Not true for all games, but most of them. Some games have wonky sound levels and you can't hear things well enough, but I find that pretty rare these days.

On.
Games like GTA IV benefited from this. Whenever a foreign language was spoken, the subtitles translated it to English.

This.

Borderlands 2 has this problem, especially if the 360's audio options are set to Surround Sound, and you can't hear certain voices unless you're far away from the one speaking.

Sleeping Dogs also has a similar problem, you can't hear any voices from phone calls when set to Surround Sound.

I usually turn Subtitles on for the first playthrough, then turn them off for other playthroughs after that.
