Hey, I just thought I'd start a thread that isn't about Microsoft or Apple.

What's the best sound effect you've ever heard in a game? And for the record, what's the worst?

My vote for best goes to "whonnng" when you get the shield in Sonic.
Worst is when you lose baby Mario, Yoshi's Island.

OK GO.

I'm sure there's one to top it, but the BFG9000 (original version) is satisfyingly badass. [tschik-iszhik] FWAAAAOOOMMMMM! In fact I like most DooM sounds, especially monster deaths.

Worst? There was this one sounds in Half Life 1 deathmatch, I think it was the item respawning sound. Part of it was a really grating buzz sound, usually louder than anything else, especially when a group of items spawned at the same time. Snarks got pretty annoying, too, though hilarity usually balanced it out

I always thought Doom 2's super shotgun reloading sound really hit the mark too.

Also, snarks, yeah. Let's not forget "LISTEN! " from Ocarina of Time.

Yeah, the Doom sounds are definitely some of my favorite ever.

Buuut I think my favorite sound effect has to be the death sound from the NES-styled Mega Man games. It gets extra cool points because bosses use the exact same sound. :3

In a close second, I rather like the hilarious sound effect that plays when you collect a piece of chicken in Tekken 3's beatemup minigame.

Worst sound effect? Tough call, but I'd probably go with the cliff racers from Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind. Eeeuurgh. >.<

This is a great idea for a topic. I'm going to stick with click games. Why?

My favorite just so happens to be from my own game (Sorry, couldn't resist): http://splotchesgame.com/brownsplosion.wav

And because the worst sound was all of them from the game they played at the click convention.

Yeah the best, let me see.... Nothing obvious comes to mind.

Worst, SO MANY TO CHOOSE FROM. But I'll definitely go with the "electric spark" sfx used in so many old movies and low-budget games. Even in newer ones. It pisses me off that they still use that sh*t tbh.

I'm real annoyed by the omnivore ape-like mouth sounds on Spore. Do those count?

Maybe we need a separate category for voices, since most voices in games are annoying.

Except SLIPPY TOAD.

My choice is the sound of a sweep kick/uppercut connecting in Mortal Kombat 1
