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

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.

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

Except SLIPPY TOAD.

I think he means Bob Holness's Colour Wheel Bonanaza Super Mega fun game, becuase the never ending footage of it was super smashing great.

Anyway I nominate the boost sound from a fast start in super mario kart. Worst sound? I'll have a think...

I always liked the sound that's made when you don your goggles in Splinter Cell.

The sounds that really annoy me is when someone is using a minigun but they devs use a machine gun sound fx >_<.
(Now I have to wonder if they got it right in Predator, the first movie I saw with a minigun in it.)

I just remembered another awful sound effect: The "boss getting hit" sound from Super Mario Land.


I guess I should follow this up with a good sound effect too. I prefer the PS3 Trophy sound to the 360 Achievement sound.

Augh, that boss-hit noise. But the Birabuto Kingdom theme negates its terribleness.

The creeping (bass sound, later in the video), swishing, attacking (BLAAAAM!), and pretty much all other comic book sound effects in Sly 2 were great.



Could be one of my favorite games ever.

Sly Cooper 2 was pure, addicting awesomeness. Still haven't finished the third yet.

As for favorite and worst sound effect, probably the menu beep sound in Half-Life 2. I guess my worst ones are alot of the sounds TGF1 came with.

Yep, they make it on the list of games whose quality and aesthetics I would one day like to be a part of creating something similar to. (There's a tongue twister for ya)

Sly 2 is the best, and 3 is a close second. The first one was okay but it's a different type of game.

I wish Sucker Punch would make the 4th one already. Even though I don't have a PS3. I'd get the PSP version though.
