Sound is a huge component of any video game, especially in the high-def games we are used to playing now.
It adds a whole new dimension to the experience, and can increase the tension, make you happy/sad, or even make you forget it is even there. And sound effects help it along.
But what if classic games, which involved nothing more than beeps and boops, got realistic sound effects akin to those in Halo or Call of Duty?
As it ends up, YouTube user virtjk did exactly that with one of the most beloved games of all time, the original Super Mario Brothers.
The result? Rather bizarre, but worth a look!
