What happened to all the people getting on Halo and just hanging out?

The Mic thing just got old. Back in halo 2 and 3 it was still kind of new. Now people just don't bother

Call of Duty happened.

Back in the day of CoD4 everyone had mics in , even in WaW.
There was this one time the Turians tried to wipe out our entire race. That was fun.

Yeah, it is kinda sad that today no one communicates in Halo 4...that was part of the allure to me when I started back in Halo 3. But if anyone wants a teammate with a mic, hit me up.

Party chat changed XBL. When that feature was introduced, the amount of people using mics in-game plummeted. It's a shame. I remember playing Halo 2 when it came out and almost everybody was mic'd up and chatting. Now people just set up a private party chat with their friends.

Most people dont like getting verbally abused and being told that their mom is getting sodomized all day long.

This. And I do think parties changed the game.

I think there was an allure to headsets for a couple years when they became accessible to everyone. However, when all the kids, music-blasters, and downright mean "your mom/girlfriend" rage-quitters saturated lobbies basking in their anonymousness, people just started getting fed up with it.

Reach happened. Halo became less social and more about getting those unlocks.

More like party chat happened.

Yeah, it's all about that Party Chat now. Plus we can talk s*** and not fear the ban hammer.

As much as I love party chat, it's destroyed gamechat. They should have done it like COD, no party chat when matchmaking.
