Playing Games with the Sound off?
 
So im working from home today as is my sister also working from home and has to give a phone interview. So I had to play games with the sound off so I wouldn't disturb her, while playing I realized how boring games are without sound... its freaking crazy boring!

Does anyone play games with the sound off regularly? Ever try it?

I have to sometimes depending on where I am. Like at work for example. Sometimes in WoW raids I'd turn the game sound off to better hear people over vent.

when i'm playing over the LAN i use speakers,when it's night i use headphones.:)

But yeah playing without sound is awful because Sound is 50% of the immersion factor in games:(


That's why it kills me to see people playing with 2.1 speakers instead of 5.1 because your missing half the sound from the game world:( and the only way to hear it is to keep turning around.

It would look kind of weird if I were sitting at my desk with a headset on doing accounting work. :p

I only play flash games or emulated games at work anyway.

They hurt my ears in the long run, I have a pair but their not good quality. Plus I want to be more wireless but I don't know any good wireless ones that wont add some large reciever to my system.

I never game without sound.

Sound is extremely important in any game.
