Metal Gear Solid

My favourite Lunatic, Hideo Kojima, has spoken up on approach to sound and music in video games and Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain. He has already proven his aptitude at using sound to great effect in his previous games and projects, most recently he put sound to great use in PT, the Silent Hills playable teaser.

When it comes to adding sounds and music to games like Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain, he discusses the importance of different audio inflections in the game, striking the balance between environmental and emotional, Kojima said “The Phantom Pain has an open world, so linear games, like movies, have the camera go a certain way in a scene, so the right type of music is easily added along with that.

“So, it’s mostly about the sounds of the environment, but when the player becomes emotional, discovers something, or flees puzzled, sad or angry, adding the all-important melody or rhythm for these situations is a new challenge.”

With many gamers rocking an impressive surround sound system in their own homes, sounds in gaming have come a long way and Hideo Kojima is a great supporter of their importance in games. He said,  “Games aren’t movies. But like movies, I think sound is 80% of it.”

    Surround sound is the single best investment any gamer can make. Don’t ever let anyone tell you headphones are the best way to play. Even Tue absolute best “surround” headphones can’t come close to comparing to even a cheap $200 Walmart special surround setup. There is nothing more immersive for audio.

    I started with a $400 Sony kit. It was a Dolby/DTS 5.1 receiver with all the speakers and a sub woofer. Over the years as I started earning more money i replaced pieces. I started by ditching the small front left and right speakers for 200wattt tower speakers that have speakers have highs mids and lows, then i replaced the 40w center channel for a larger 2 speaker 120w center, after that the 40w rear left and rights were replaced with larger 100w speakers and last but definitely not least I replaced the Sony 5.1 receiver for a pioneer HDMI capable 7.1 receiver.

    Best gaming investment I have ever made. I currently run it in 5.1 but I could do 7.1 if I used 2 of my older speakers which I might do eventually but I’d really like to get 2 wireless speakers instead as its hard to hide wires for side channels.

    The way only thing that could make my setup better is playing with an occulus rift which I will do once a consumer version launches. I also have to get a Morpheus for the ps4.
