A Cataclysmic Dawn: Atmospheric Gaming

EGMR writes: "Atmosphere is vitally important to the success of a game. The sights and sounds of a title do a lot to add to the overarching feeling of it, and without them, games struggle to establish meaningful context or impact to their setting or events which occur throughout the game. Yet still, many games fail to establish any defined atmosphere and suffer quite severely as a result." (Call of Duty: Ghosts, Culture, Mass Effect, Tearaway)
