So you remember the way something smells better than they look? Wow! I best stop arguing with you...
Grahics don't? Wake up...
Rofl...I've noticed that 100% of Ninty fans said music, but please don't say such a thing. Halo? When you look back at the game do you honestly think of music before graphics? False...
If you guys are saying graphics than you honestly must not have played many games. I'm very sure everyone's favorite games have memorable music and graphics are likely an afterthought seeing as how many people love games from the last gens.
Also, good music can help a bad game. It makes the game remembered as the bad game with good music. If a game is bad and has bad graphics then it's usually not remembered.
i'm probably the furthest thing from a ninty fan, but i can tell you right now music makes the game.
despite graphical updates, new features, original katamari> other katamari
before evyone gets on my case about the "furthest thing from a ninty fan" i don't mean i hate ninty, i mean i am apathetic to it.
sorry to disagree with you "itashi", but the op specifically asked what makes a game more memerable. imho (and probably factually as well) music makes for longer more persistant memories, just like smells. Remember, our video memory works only in frames, whereas our olfactory and audition memory recognition persist in entirety.
lol itashi i am so sorry to do this to you. but i will just have to back it up with facts
Research has indicated smell to be the strongest memory-provoker. (McAleer, 1985.p.66) This might be because the receptors for these sensors go directly into the brain through the olfactory bulbs to the hippocampus, and require less processing than do the other senses.
i can find better sources if you want, this was just a quick search, but i can guarantee you right now, that his is proven by science. so, again, sorry to do that to you. make you look completely wrong like that.
in the future you should know that i know my shit.
memory impairments have also been linked to loss of hearing.
if you wanna continue this i'd be happy to. though your opinion is still valid.
