Not really no, most of the games I play involve killing and blood. If Left 4 Dead was properly smelling then it would just be rotting flesh, flames and smoke. Not something I want to play. Second option would be to only introduce the good smells in the area, like donuts in NM3, but that would just make things feel unrealistic I think.

Some games it could work maybt, but honestly not something I really need.

it's more of gimmick and you'll enjoy it for next few days before you turn it off forever.

Not suprised they are researching this given smell is very strong memory trigger and would help soldiers recall what to do on the field.

I think there was some research into burning different electronic doobries in different combination's which negates the need for lots of different smell carts.
