Black Friday Lite! (Canadian version)

Picked up a PS4 pro with COD WW2, Horizon New Dawn and Wolfenstein.

Ummmmmm, why the heck are us HT guys into movie sound at all? COD is crazy. Horizon new dawn is outstanding. Seriously! Have an accomplished HT? Don't game? better get started.

I'm awakened. cool Tell me gamers, what are your fave picks for video game sound design. Let's game it up.

I read Dirt4 is pretty awesome too for sound. Almost like a rally simulator. Might check it out.

Project Cars (& PC2) are great for audio. Also StarWars Battlefront since I see from COD you're playing first person shooter. The thermal imploder weapon in BattleFront is awesome for the sub.

Be warned if you get into VR however! Because of the positional 3D sound interaction with head position and the headset, you're fancy shmancy HT becomes unnecessary. I had a hard time accepting this when I got to play on an Oculus Rift with good headphones a while back. It was setup in my HT and my big UHD TV was just a secondary monitor for people to see what the player was doing.

Last night we had a bunch of people over and a couple were really good at COD. We were into the pops and were playing at reference. BEWARE! The dynamic range of this game can damage speakers if you play really loud.

The Dayton 8's in my towers popped. (Over excursion) No damage, but sobering to realise the super towers are not invincible! Have to re-set the volume governor lower now. Booooo!

I dont game but my 18 yr old does and the war games like COD etc hit some serious low notes that i let the sub take care of. I suspect you may be on to something with regards to the booze. I recall when i used to drink the spl increased exponentially with the amount of alcohol consumed.

Horizon zero dawn sounded amazing. Great game too!

Zelda breath of the wild has some great orchestrated music and the level of realism to the tiniest miniscule sound effects is incredibly immersive.

Destiny was another good one

The uncharted series and the last of us are hands down the best sounding games I've heard tho. Triple A titles with an almost unlimited budget
