While I appreciate the effort going into localizing the game, some people like myself much prefer consuming media in their original language.
The reasons for this include:
- humor, puns, plays on words not being translated properly or untranslatable
- easier to discuss with/understand other international users
- sometimes sloppy or unelegant translation (case in point: the german translation swaps a "d" to "t" - "standard" to "Standart" - which is wrong. It's a small mistake but just meant to illustrate here)
Instead of just going with the Windows locale (agreed, it's a sensible default), the locale of the game should be selectable by the user.
