So not sure what the fits about.
It all depends on how it's done. Fallout 1/2 are damnly immersive and they have almost no speech at all. If used properly it's great, but speech does not equal moar immershun. The biggest problem with MMO's in general is a lack of sense and the fact that you see hundreds of other players doing the same thing as you do, which sometimes can make sense but other times it's just silly. It's the reason MMO's can never beat a proper single player game in storytelling and dialouge.
