I bought computer speakers but hooked them up to my TV because I always use headphones.

Mainly because pre-college I used to play FPS games competitively and headphones are the only way to go.

I've tried it. But it kinda sucks. It's nowhere as immersive as it was designed to be. I'd rather just used headphones.

Back when I played WoW I always had the sound off, mostly because I was listening to music and/or Vent.

Most FPS' I play with sound, but I'm almost always listening to music at the same time so it can sometimes drown out the sound.

Overall it doesn't bother me one way or another, if I'm playing in Single Player and there's story I gotta have sound. Otherwise it's all about blasting enemies to Killing In the Name by RATM.
