So, the article can be summarized as "My opinion is objective fact. Here's one arbitrarily stacked example that proves it."
If anything, I'll point to people to this article when they think that rose-colored glasses don't exist, as yours is the very definition of the phrase.

Most people don't use voice, so maybe most people playing MMOs are 14-year-olds with peer pressure issues.

That's fantastic. I didn't say that all guys who plays girls don't want to talk on vent.

So, wait... You're saying TALKING makes you feel like you're working but TYPING ON A KEYBOARD doesn't?

Sorry Nearly... the crappy comment system of Massively put my comment on the wrong thread.

Mar 31st 2011 3:56PM I know some people won't like this but I've found that a lot of people who don't like chat are guys playing girl characters and don't want to be found out.
Now, more seriously, chat is what most games will continue to support more and more as bandwidth becomes more available and no having a microphone is a poor excuse for not talking as they cost as little as $8 at Wal-Mart. And this move makes perfect sense as player demographics is expanding from the antisocial weirdos who alone used to troll the MMO scene to the more "average" individuals who have no hang ups about voice chat or haven't developed the habit of chatting.
Personally, as an old school gamer who used to play MUDs and MUSHs, I prefer voice chat over text any day. It's easier to simply talk instead of type, I don't have to stop what I'm doing in game, I can stay in contact even when I'm out of the game, it is MUCH faster than typing regardless of how fast you type, and you develop much personal relationships with people.

Meh... I don't wanna spend my money on the games but still wanna play them. So, I download them. That's my justification. Oh well.

Ummm... I hate to break it to you but the DS or DSi isn't dead, yet and won't be a quite a while.
