The messages, as with a lot of things, are all part of the atmosphere. As is disabling party chat. It's nothing to do with XP farming or anything else, just atmosphere. Other things you'd miss out on:|
- The messages, obviously; messages that get recommended by other players stay in the world longer, and if you leave a message that gets recommended your health bar will fill up.
- You won't be able to summon help from others, or invade/get invaded
- You won't see ghosts of other players playing the game where you are
- When another player dies in their own game, you can touch their bloodstain to see their final living moments
