Does 3D audio really enhance the enjoyment of any 2D game? The tech seems to be forever in development, with something new appearing only to be tossed one generation later.

I have never heard anyone say: "you have to play this game, because the 3D audio is so cool". Have you?

I don't think I've heard audio as a selling point in games for a long long time...

My favorite 3D audio experience was with PS4's Fallout 4, combined with the Playstation Gold wireless headphones. They (probably) did a lot of proprietary sound stuff for it, so It feels like true surround sound. It was the first time in a videogame that I've ever heard somebody walking behind me, where I could pinpoint their exact location.

It's great, but I don't know if anyone else has done that with the headphones since. I don't recommend you go out and buy everything necessary to replicate my experience, but it's something I'll tell people about for a while.

I think rockstar might've done something similar with gta v, since they mentioned something about a setting with the playstation headphone when i launched if i remember correctly
