NHL 16’s Obsession with Audio

NHL® 16_20150923131742

“Video games are an industry of visuals, where frame rates are counted and resolutions reach the peak of modern televisions. Those numbers, 60fps/1080p, are a sales pitch. They’re rated and reviewed. Audio is difficult to parse in ads, more so in text. There is a stadium intimacy to the NHL franchise, different from Madden’s 90,000 seat virtual domes or the reflective wooden floors of NBA Live. As NHL the series grew, so did the focus on audio.”
