Oh, someone else wrote the escapist article, very cool.

Unfortunately, GTA: San Andreas is not captioned as the author states.
What she's talking about is subtitles.

- Subtitles = dialog
- Captions = dialog + sound effects and music
- Open Captions = equal captions that are burned into the video signal
and can't be turned off
- Closed captions = equal captions that are encoded into the video or
game data and can be turned on or off at will
