Playing games without sound is like cycling with headphones on ,
Stupid and dangerous!

I have tried it and it does make the game very boring. You really need to sound to make the game a good experence and how the developer wanted you to fell when you played it.

I do use headphones 100% of the time, but sometimes i have played without them on..and it does help focus more in online gaming, ie no distraction from sounds, so all focus is on the screen..

I've tried it, but it just doesn't work. If I have to I use headphones. I'd rather not game than game without sound.

i game without sound... well let me explain. i play cs:s without sound and have metal playing instead of the game sound to work on my twitch gaming. i typically do this for most fps' that i play online. it makes you learn typical patterns on where people will be, how to recognize where you're getting shot from, etc. so that when you finally start playing with sound, it's feels like you are cheating because you can hear where everyone is.

I use headphones, only time I'm not playing with sound is when I'm on the phone playing games, it really drops my skill level in games, especially online.
