Carolyn Koh returns today with an editorial on sound in MMORPGs and how it can enhance or kill a gaming experience.
Dana Massey's editorial entitled Graphics Whores stuck a chord when I thought of my own gaming experience and what I look for before I consider a game really good. For that, I want sound. Good sound. Well produced sound.
Turn off the sound in a movie and what have you got? A bunch of moving heads and not much else. Turn off the sound in an MMOG and you don't know that an Orc has come up behind you and is beating on your head like a drum, or that a pesky trooper has dropped down under you and is trying to take your BFR out with a popgun - that seems to be the challenge in Planetside currently - soloing a BFR.
