Parameters aren't completely necessary. Whenever you add a parameter to an event, you can define that parameter as anything of the type specified every time that you call the event. They make the events customizable. For example, when you tell an object to move forward a certain amount, the way it handles that distance is using parameters. Anything that is set when an event is called are parameters. It's basically just a way to make your events act more like the events that are already created for you. Anything tan that you use is an event.

Hope this helps!
