MMORPGs are large, enormous repositories of sound design. You may never consciously think about it, but trust me, you notice it. From leveling up to casting spells to being alerted that an enemy is heading your way, the audio of your MMO plays a huge part in your experience with it.
And as with any activity that we engage in repeatedly and for a great length of time, sounds associated with that activity burrow into our head. It could be years after we’ve left a game that we again hear a particular sound effect, ambient soundscape, or musical sting — and all of those happy memories come rushing back.
