Well, it should be private chat so you can talk privately and invite people to your game, such as, in Achievement Unlocked 2 I could send my friend code to them so they can play with me or otherwise just talk without tons of people. I site I think that does this very well is a website named OMGPOP. The whole set is, there is a little button that you can click and it automatically send an invite link to your friend. They also have a whole group chat, where people can make there on chat rooms and ban or silence those they please and there is one big chat that the actual site owns and CREW members are moderating it. In that chat the site hosts games that gives away coins and XP. So it is a fun way to gain XP.

On xat you can talk in the main or click on someones name and press private chat.

The xat chats are better though. You can actually appoint people to control them.

The Meebo rooms failed miserably. I am only for another AG live chat service if some sort of effective moderation system is put in place.

I don't think Xat would be a good choice. I'm not too sure why. IM programs are one of the several ways you can communicate with specific users, but not everyone is able to or willing to download them.

I'm pretty sure Xat would be too chaotic, even if there were multiple rooms. And then you have the groveling for mod/owner/main status...
