The author should have mentioned the Souls franchise. That one benefits a lot by not supporting in-game chat -- great for the atmosphere the game wants to maintain.

Next gen consoles will have a party chat feature. Sony recently announced this. So "voiceless multiplayer" games are no longer a growing concern. We will have voice and text chat capabilities...whether the devs incorporate it into their games or not.

Counter-Strike is still an amazing game/mod.

Personally I think the "voiceless" multiplayer in Journey was phenomenal. Without any words I formed strong, sometimes slightly dependent relationships with people who didn't even have a name to me. It really resonated with the game, especially when you'd get separated from somebody.

in journey's case it was part of the game design and message thatgamecompany wanted to communicate. otherwise, this author thought it was a technical issue.
