Just wondering how FFXI users feel about this because it came up in a discussion between my friend and I.
Would you guys want in-game voice/mic support for FFXIV?
Personally, I do not. Something about communicating with other players with a mic seems to ruin the role-playing aspect of the game for me...
When I'm role-playing some Dark Knight Tarutaru(-esque) character, I don't want to sound like the 16-year-old white kid that I am!
It would also be really awkward to say a lot of things Square Enix comes up with aloud.
I know these aren't the reasons why the rest of you might be opposed to it. (awkward for people without mic, annoyed by other players talking, etc.)
BUT, voice/mic support is becoming pretty standard for online games, so I have a feeling it may be included in FFXIV; especially if there's a 360 release.
I know that when I played Phantasy Star Universe on the 360 everyone used a mic only to communicate and it was one of the most awkward things ever. Made me basically want to solo.
