Why don't all games have caption?

Ever since Half-Life 2 was released, I believe all of their games have closed captioning.

A very good friend of mine is a serious gamer/collector and is also deaf. I sometimes forget that part when we chat about the latest games on yahoo IM but he manages to play almost every game. There needs to be more closed captioning in games no matter the game type.

There are hearing impaired gamers who should have the right to play games we hearing gamers take for granted. Even if it is just being able to read the dialog of the game and not hear/feel the imursion the music and sound effects create.
