Favorite Video Game Sounds


#1

With the Scott Pilgrim Trailer out one of the things that stood out to me, and hopefully to the majority of you on the boards, was the SFA3 announcer saying K O ! Favorite part of the trailer and probably the only reason I watched the trailer like 6 times.

However with that said, it just brought up the idea in my head, what are your favorite video game sounds? Not quotes obviously, engrish perhaps, or sayings during a move (hadoukens etc.) nor video game music since we already have a thread for that, but the bleeps and bloops we get from the characters we control? Of course shorter musical sounds are welcomed such as the Contra Beating a level theme. Here are a few of my favorites:

MvC2: When the announcer says “FINISH” kind of over the tops everything about the game, but it’s a far more definitive ending to one KO when you’re in the middle of the match.

Strider: The “shing” of his sword. Positively the most badass video game weapon of the 80’s.

Link to the Past: Link falling into a pit. It’s comedic and sort of sad at the same time. You know that you fucked up but it plays on the good old cartoon version of dropping from a height.

-The “clank” sound when you hit metallic objects in MvC2
-The shotgun blast sound when you land a super combo in 3S
-The last hit of Dan’s super/ultra in SF4
-When someone gets stabbed by Hyo in Rival Schools
-Super Shotgun from Doom 2

There’s probably many more I could list…

Pause sound in SF2:WW, sounds like an excerpt from robot porn.

Sonic

  • jumping (whoop)
  • getting an item (boo)
  • getting a shield (wong)
  • getting an emerald (YES!!!)

Edit: looking at the LttP one reminded me of falling to your death in Oddworld: Abe’s Oddesy (WWWWWWWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOoooooooooaaaaaaahhhhhhhh crash dun dun)


#6

Pretty much any sound effect in Super Castlevania IV. Anything from when Simon takes damage, the creaking of those huge chandeliers, or Gaibon’s battle cries.


#7

This for sure, and the old school shotgun sound, and like EVERY monster sound.

Also, for some reason I love the nazi vocals in the original Wolfenstein.

And C Viper getting beat. Sounds like you just ripped out an ovary.


#8

The sounds of both the boomer and she-boomer. I want that shit as my ringtone.

-The sound that Link makes when he takes a hit in Zelda 2
-Mr. X’s laugh in Kung Fu
-When you hit someone with the flying knee in Double Dragon 2 for the NES
-Buster Wolf sound when Terry rushes at you in MotW
-Disappearing block sound in the NES Mega Man games
-That “ping” sound when you hit something in Contra for the NES

Sonic sound effects are always ear candy


#11

The only sound that will ever matter is that sound the Diablo 2 game makes when you drop a skull in your inventory.

Clunk.
