The Intense History of Sound in Video Games
Today, we take sound in video games from granted. But how did sound evolve from the pings of pong to the toe-curling growls of The Last of Us? What innovations now allow us to slash boxes to the beat in Beat Saber, and what music genres have grown out of the video game community? It’s a wild ride with the SoundGuys, and they’ve brought a friend for the ride. Juan Carlos Bagnell of SomeGadgetGuy.com joins us on our journey through the bleeps and bloops of video game sound.
