Party chat is both the single greatest and worst thing to happen to gaming.

I LOVE a variety of different games.

From a competitive FPS game, to a strategy game like CIV, to a story well told, my tastes are as eclectic as most gamers who would post on a forum such as this.

For multiplayer gaming I love the convenience of party chat on my ps4. However, it's essentially a catch 22 that will damn any game that I am trying to enjoy for its story.

Appearing offline is a move that's guaranteed to annoy my friends, and fleeting in its usefulness. Most of the people on my friend's list no longer fall for that trick. Additionally, just ignoring party invites is an amazing way to be bombarded with even more invites to a party that I have zero desire to be in.

What do you guys think?
