Will sound dampening in a room make loud sounds less loud?

For instance in the game room with the kids, all the noises they make seem to be ear piercing indoors, but completely tolerable outdoors. Not just loud voices, but things like toys clacking against a table or the sounds the toys themselves make.

it's a small square room, maybe 10 x 10 with carpet and painted drywall walls. If i add something like pyramid acoustical tiles to the walls, will sounds "seem" quieter?

Yes acoustical conditioning will improve the interior noise levels.

Cover as much of the surface as you can.

The more you cover the faster the absorption happens and the quieter it is..
