When you think of Uncharted you think visuals. You think insane vistas, incredible views, perfect lighting. In short, you think of the visuals because Naughty Dog are real wizards in that department.
But what about the other side of that coin — that which you are not supposed to notice?
What about the sound design?
What about it? Well, if this video is anything to go by, Naughty Dog put the same amount of effort into making the sound as seamless as the visuals. The only difference: the job of sound design is to make the player forget that sound design exists. A thankless task to be sure.
That's the interesting part of sound design I think, and it's something that Naughty Dog's designers discuss in this short documentary. Well worth watching.
