Midweek Meanderings: Soundtrack to your Escapism

Bracken Lee-Rudolph from ITF Gaming writes: Sound presentations in video games are both incredibly important, and often woefully overlooked. Many developers look past the soundscape of their titles in an effort to focus on another facet of their title – usually graphics – or to reduce costs. However, soundtracks, scores and sound effects are vital parts of creating an immersive experience, and many games, such as the blockbuster Call of Duty franchise and Skyrim opted to forgo a focused sound performance to benefit other aspects of their title, such as the multiplayer in the former and the expansive environment in the latter.
