>play game with great music and sound
>"hey anon, you should voice chat with us"
>enter the voice chatroom
>all I can hear is a bunch of nasaly neckbeards shouting at each other
Am I the only one who is just not the least bit fucking interested in this?
>enter voice chat
>it's a bunch of spergs shouting at each other
>there's a female whom they all worship
>try to say something relevant to the task at hand
>nobody pays attention
Voice chat is actually awful because its just sound and everyone is at the same sound level
In a normal conversation you see people's lips move and shut the fuck up for a sec. In voice chat it's just a bunch of faggots chiming in at once all the time
No, you're not the only one
>friend talks up his skype group voice chat for weeks
>its full of /b/-tier spergs who say outdated memes and only talk about a few casual video games and entry level anime
I've had other good experiences playing Smash 4 with online friends with voice chat going, but god it was cringeworthy, he still bugs me to come back but I havent been there since.
My biggest problem with is is people have respect for anyone elses ears. One or more people will generally have open mic on and have horribly loud background noise and will then complain if anyone is making a slightly annoying noise to them.
>boot up voip client
>connect to random server that has something to do with counter strike or dota
>9/10 times it's either a group of bronies or animefags talking is broken wapanese
I think this is a big part of why Dark Souls and Journey, for instance, were able to have good immersive multiplayer experiences. Forcing you to communicate non-verbally draws you into the game more.

Feels good to have a manly voice, mate.
>"Hey anon, join voice chat"
>Bunch of autistics having an autistic conversation

>Either get ignored or my comment gets shut down
>"Why'd you leave anon? We were having fun"
>Expect griefers and shitters
>Get welcomed with people using the VOIP for what it is, calling for coordinates and describing the enemy mechs, using clear lingo and working together
>Must be because the fanbase is made of old people
>Release on Steam
>Everyone is silent and can't take a fucking hint of PULL BACK YOU'RE ON A KILLBOX DELTA 4 IS NOT SAFE STOP PEEKING, MOVE AROUND CHARLIE LANCE FUCK
>Friend asks for voice chat
>"I just wanted to hear your voice"
That's because meme girl would probably like it
>Hear a kid on voice chat
>"I firin lasr but they no doing anything? what the fug"
>He's on a Hunchback with mediums only slowly poking a Stalker
>He's actually getting angry
I know it's a game but come on.
>join voice chat
>it's a roleplay voice chat
>people are talking in character
>think it's stupid at first but end up loving it
>hear some kid losing his fucking mind over some F2P/P2W shit game, I think it was Tanks
>complaining about high tiers and how people who use heavies need to die
>I calmly chime in, remind him its just a game, particularly one where you can substitute money in place of skill. They're not gods, they're just shitters with gold
>he comes to his senses, entire team starts actually helping me out for once
Animefag here. I use voice chat all the time. I think the difference between who uses it and who doesn't comes down to whoever has pretension of being "cute", a "little girl", or a fuckboy. They don't want to break the masquerade
>I wanna soundwhore in blops3 but my friends wanna party up and chat.
Don't they care about my KDR?
