Its just the norm now.  People are more connected then ever.  8 years ago I used teamspeak for the first time and I was extremely nervous and anxious about it, despite being 16 and a somewhat confident person.  12 years ago, I used instant messaging for the first time and my parents (who were extremely nervous and anxious at the time) told me never to give out my personal information or get in close contact with strangers online.

Now, kids are using facebook, streaming, using webcams, and more - all at a young age.  People are getting more comfortable with this type of technology and because its useful to them, they continue to use it.

Additionally, I've chatted with many people online over 30.  Infact, the first person to suggest I use voice chat was a woman in her 30s.

This is the kind of thing that made me wonder if the chance you dislike or like voice chat has any relation to your age. As you said, the youth today grows up with it and never played online games without it. They started playing when people already claimed that you couldn't be successfull at all without voice chat. When you grow up in such a situation it effects your way of thinking just like any other external influences change the way you think and act.

I have a feeling, just a feeling since as I said I have not researched it, that when you purely look at those that don't like to use it the younger crowd probably have a bigger chance to use being shy and such as a reason while perhaps older players are more likely to use words like immersion as a reason. Also I think with older players the generation difference can be an added negative aspect for the same reason you don't see many 45 yr olds hang out with teens and vica versa. They just think and act different and it often doesn't go well together.

40 here and I don't like it. I can use it sometimes but in general I prefer typing. I find typing less stressful and I've actually had a lot more meningful conversions using old school chat. I think voice chat is so easy to use so that encourages people to fill the channel with a lot of garbage all the time.

In some situations it would help but my old guild was a good one, we could handle dungeons simply by being on our toes and being serious by doing our best to contribute to the team, no voice needed.

I don't really like it, except when it's being used for raids or PvP strategy.

I can do without having my lugholes filled with the sound of someone chewing, or humming, or having a phone conversation with their girlfriend (push to talk is your friend people!) - or my current peeve, idiots e-peening all over the place and calling themselves leet, because if you have to keep on saying it son, it ain't true. And it's kinda pathetic.

I know, I know, I'm a curmudgeon ... and I need to step away from my headset.

I liked MMOs better when gamers didn't play them, and just geeks did.

Age does play a role in liking/disliking voice chat, in that I'm 35 and hate listening to 22 year olds act like idiots. Guess I'm officially old now. In my day we had to type out raid strats during fights. Shaddap ya damn kids! I don't care how awesome you think you are!

I am not a fan of voice chat while playing MMORPG's,the majority of chat is absolutly nothing at all to do with what were doing ingame so I avoid it.When raiding its fine because usually its raidleader only speak apart from calling out for curses etcetera of which I clicked a macro instead anyway haha.

I only ever listened and never spoke.I also never understand why some people while we're getting ready to raid have to play thier music to all on voice....It was usually some scandinavian guy playing outdated heavy metal too...lol.And BTW I have nothing against scandinavians just thier music choices! and maybe food...... my GF is Swedish lol.

Get off my lawn!

I'm older than most, I dislike voice chat for the similar reasons as you, so I guess the OP's premise might be true.

Perhaps though, like you I cut my MMO teeth when there was no voice chat and we seemed to get by just fine without it.

I do see the benefits of voice chat in PVP, or even in today's "Dance with the stars" PVE raid fights, but outside of that I don't really want to talk to people on voice chat.

In fact, I found it extremely annoying when playing SWTOR since every time a cut scene/voice over started some folks would start yammering on Vent and I couldn't hear the story and found myself restarting it once I shut off chat.

Long, long ago, I was in a RP guild called Shadowclan and we took the role playing so far as to have an official pseudo language with specific grammer rules (no e's and c's as I recall) and what not and we almost always stayed in character.   So "taking a bio break" became "niid to find a bushi" or Hello to you became "Ug dir lat"  (there were many total word replacements)

Well, enough of the grammer lesson, point is, while that system was great fun via text, I can't see myself trying to LARP it in a voice channel, just not happening.

So I do the best I can, I use voice chat when "necessary" or feeling charitable, but otherwise you will likely find me logged off of vent and listening to a different soundtrack.

 

Arrogant, Condescending, Dismissive, Elitist, "Meany", you speak as if these are bad things?
Still currently "subscribed" to EVE, and only EVE!!!

In all fairness there are plenty of older gamers acting like idiots as well. Let's try not to risk  turning this topic into a flamewar.

Whether or not you are now old in the gaming world, I am not so sure about that. The average video gamer is 37 according to last year's study, but I am not sure what the average age is of the mmo gamer. Might be the same, might be a lot younger. Personally I call the 30+ age the "older" gamer, not the "old" gamer because in my eyes an old gamer is an ex gamer.  :)
