Just random thought, but I just realized on of hte reasons that I really liked Ultima Online. No General Chat. I could talk to people right next to me....and yell at people a bit further away.
I think it really added to the sense of scale f the world. To get from Vesper to Trinsic took like 45 minutes. It was a dangerous road. There could be Reds and no one could hear me scream lol It FELT far away. Travel in the woods seemed isolated and dangerous.
If I needed something in a town far away, it was a big deal to get there. I kind of miss this element of MMORPG games. Now I have to read crap from juvenile pricks in another city...I can ask someone if the price is better where they are at...like the real world, convenience has taken over.
Just out of curiousity, How many people would enjoy a game with Local chat only (say and yell)? Not even guild chat. If you wanna see what teh guild is doing, you need to go to the guild house. I bet guildmembers start really using their house for something beyond just a giant storage box.
Sure I am in the minority lol, but thoughts?
