back in the day you would enter a halo lobby and hear people talking shit from the get go, your team mates would actually talk to u and not be muted zombies like they are now. gears of war 1 was the shit early into x360 life as well as halo 3. i would actually leave a gears 1 lobby if no one was talking, i found it very hard to play multiplayer games without talking to someone.
then around 2010 i feel most people and their friends had bought x360 so they would stay in party chat. more often than not it was me by myself along with a party of 3 taking on a team. this fukin SUCKS. multiplayer is supposed to be a social experience
most of my 80+ friends i have made on xbl are from the gears 1/halo 3 days, now i know what u noobs are going to say 'bu-bu- why dont u play with your real life friends!!!' well smart ass my real life friends are casual gamers who only pay fifa and u cant make new friends if everyone else and their grandma is on party chat all the damn time
now on to the pc sucks part, mod abuse is the name of the game. say anything mods dont like on server? muted, banned, booted. no freedom of speech what so ever.
