The main idea of this section can be summarized as such: Even if it did go against the sound team’s instincts, it was worthwhile to actually minimize the number of sounds and dialogue variations in order to create a Pavlovian Response during gameplay. Pavlovian Response helps players intuitively memorize and, therefore, quickly identify sounds, which in essense helps them optimize their reaction time.
