A video game is a program developed by a video game designer or programmer for creating a unique experience of playing a game through a console or computer. The programmers must also add interactivity, unique graphics, sound effects, and a variety of game features to make the video game complete. In order to meet these requirements, a video game developer will often add ambience sound effects, voiceovers, and even video gameplay sound effects. Sound effects are used to create visual illusions in video games and to convey a certain mood or theme that the video game is portraying.

Audio is one of the most important components of a video game. It sets the mood of the video game and creates the character of the video game. The game will not be successful if the characters in it do not have enough sound effects. In fact, the lack of sound effects in a video game may even cause players to lose interest in playing the game. Therefore, it is important that the sound effect designers at the game developer include as many sound effects as they can in their video games.

If you correctly use video game sound effects, you can create a unique gameplay experience. For example, if you know the game Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice you know what I mean! Ninja Theory, the company that developed the game showcased their efforts in capturing sound like never before, using what is known as binaural audio recording. The effect of it’s spooky, almost as if you have voices in your head. This is very important for the storyline cause the main character is suffering from mental illness. And with the help of binaural audio recording, you can feel the struggle of Senua. That way Ninja Theory created a unique game with the help of sound effects!
