Why is it said that sound effects are useful not only in movies, but also in video games and music?

            You might have noticed that sound effects are used not just in films, but also in television shows, live performances, animation, video games, music, or other media too.

            As far as video games are concerned, the effects play an integral role in their success. To understand this better, one should play a game with sound turned off. Imagine scenes of battle with no sound. Boring, aren’t they? That is because sound effects play a major role in communicating the narrative, and enriching the experience of the player.

             In the past, game environments were simple and hence, they reduced the required number of sounds. As the business of video gaming grew, more people started getting involved in the sound part. Today, most successful projects have a specialized team of sound designers who work to improve the quality of games.

             However, such importance is given not just in video games, but in music too. Some pieces of music use sound effects to enhance its beauty.
