They're waiting for you Gordon. In the test chamburrr.
>>446390948I fucking love the sound design in Half-Life. >DUDUDU BRRRR
>>446390948Why did HL1 have such ridiculously superior weapon sounds to HL2?
>>446391919Half-Life has pretty good and memorable sound design. I bet you can hear all these in your head.>healing/HEV units>picking up a weapon>creaking door sound>stomping on metal floor>headcrab sounds>vortigaunt sounds>HECU chatter>flatlining death sounds>body parts splashing around>getting dragged upwards by barnacle>barnacle death vomit>electric bolt sound>hurt by fire>fall damage with the little bone>all HEV suit lines about your injuries>snark sounds>access denied>door opening sound
>>446391919except all the sounds were fucking awfulguns, footsteps, explosions, doors, falling debris, impact, enemy grunts, everythinghow do you fuck this up so badly
>>446392618> t. contrarian faggotHL really had very memorable sound design.
>>446392618>it's garbage!>it's not!It should be a rule in /v/ that when someone calls something garbage they need to provide an explanation and a counter-example to stop all these useless posts.I'm not even mad. Just exasperated. I'm genuinely interested to find out whether you're a troll or not and what you think constitutes good and bad sound design.
>>446392573The fucking houndeyes, though>BWEEEHHHBWWWWWEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE
*explosion**gore splatter*>camera flings backwards and falls sidewaysBEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE-Why don't more games make death this cold and brutal. No game over/you died. Just you watching your skull on the ground.
>>446392957hello illiteratememorable =/= goodall the sounds were of dogshit quality, and i dont just mean bitrate, they were actually fucking awful and unfittingpistol sounding like a pop gunshotgun sounding like an oil drum with rocks in itonly the .357 sounded decentfootsteps so lofi it makes your teeth itch and for some reason theres a fucking WHISTLE in one of themexplosions having a 'whew' near the end>>446393310take off the rosetinted glasses faggotquake, dn3d, serious sam etc all did sounds better than hl

>>446394596That's literally your fucking argument you faggot
I admit, I fucking love all of HL sound because I've played hundreds of hours of HL and it's mods. If I was a zoomer and played HL for the first time this year I'd probably hate the sound design, but I'm a nostalgiafag boomer and it feels great.
>>446393883What's more important than utmost technical mastery is how they make you feel.But speaking of technical mastery, did you completely ignore how well the game did directional sound and the different sounds in different environments?
>>446393883what noise should be at the end of an explosion then?
>>446392618fuck off zoomer
>>446394829desu in retrospect the sounds are actualy kind of horrible in quality but really creative.thats probably the best part about valve games, they tell realism to fuck off and do whatever sounds cool.
>>446394972Too bad the sfx in HL2 sucks.
HL1 has 10/10 sound design. A lot of thought went into it, you can tell when you can hear the weird alien animal noises around corners and such, when they aren't even aware of the playerhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_fQqmqib3a4&list=PL9F420C6C2DB3F01B&index=5
>>446394972Hardly, just in HL1. Here's the pistol from HL2: >piff paff biff baff paff piff
>>446395093Out of all HL sounds I find headcrab screeching the most annoying and unpleasant.
>>446394959>zoomeri was blasting through doom on uv before you were even conceived you flossing waste of spunk>>446394757im sorry youre illiterate>>446394928this doesnt fucking matter because the sounds dont fit well with the objects that make them>>446394942you ever hear a MEOW after a grenade explodes>>446394597keep backpedallingcall me when your shoes fucking whistle on a concrete floor
>>446395175>>446395059shit taste. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nTbL5elVXrU
>>446395093That's not sound design, that's sound engineering. Sound design takes place in the choice or generation of the sample, and then manipulation of the waveform. Sound propagation is an engineer's issue, and choosing which sounds play when and where is a lead's issue.
>>446395467>I'm literally an autistYou could infer that I actually like the sounds themselves, you fucking potato
>>446395567I know man, I'm just helping you out. Now you know, and when this thread dies, you'll always have that information with none of the shame for making the small mistake to get it.
>>446391472he's literally in power armor
>speak gordon freeman _comma you have an inoperative johnson
Holy shit the arrogance on this guy.Who made you the lord of sound design?

>>446390948FREEMAN YOU FOOL
What sound does it make ?
>>446396648No, no and NO!
>>446392573never heard the death sound in my life, sorry kid.
>>446396924AVOO AVOO AVOO AVOO
>>446391269Stop attacking! He’s a friend!
Some may call it lazy but I always enjoy playing a valve game and hearing all those Half Life sounds.

>>446396648Take that ugly mess away from this thread!
>>446391586The gibbing noise in Quake II is always so satisfying to me.
put that down, it's a prototypewhy aren't we using it??it's much too unpredictable, DON'T LET IT OVER CHARGEWHAT DO YOU MEAN OV-
>>446391472Based on the sound it produces when it's swung through the air, Gordon's "crowbar" is probably hollow.
>>446390948Oh no. It's probably those /v/ people again. Always pushing their autism too hard, dabbling in who knows what. I'd be surprised if there's one good brain among them!
i think i'm going to extract my good old black mesa iso from 2012 and fire up that steam emu again. swwwwwoooosssshhhhh
>>446398012they are the hardcore aspies, so no. stupid kids with keyboards. that being said, you don't find intelligent autists on cuckchan (with a negligible exception to the rule)
Jabroni Brawl WHEN?
Friendly reminder that Sven-Coop is available for free on steam and there's a lot of active servers.
>>446391586Probably the worst single player campaign id ever released
>>446400595I try to run a hardcore difficulty server for /v/, at times, but get nary a joiner. >>446400625It's fun
>>446400765The multiplayer? Of course, I have great memories about it. Single player? Fuck, no.
>>446398465WHAT COULD IT MEAN?
Are there any modern (say released after 2010) FPS games that have modding community as big as HL1 and 2? Are newer games even open for modding? Is it possible to make and play on custom maps in Battlefield or Call of Duty, or even make your own game modes?
>>446402153>modern FPS game>modding communityPick one and only one
>>446397474w-who has these ready to go on command
>>446400595>no p2p serversSomeone made half life co-op in gmod, and since you can have addons, and it has p2p servers, I find it better than sven coop
>>446396924QUIRK K-SCHEEBEEP BEEP BEEP BEEP BEEP BEEPWOOOOOOMMMMMMWOOOOOMMM
>>446391586AH AHH AHHHHHHHHHHHH~
>>446402153Nunreal Tournament tried it. Dusk has some tools but I don't know what you can do besides maps.Maybe smaller games will have full support for mods, like Prodeus, the three next 3D Realms FPS and hopefully the new Romero game will have it too.
