Favorite Sound Efffect

This would be your favorite sound that is not the character talking. For example:
*The flame thrower in Call of Duty 5
*The sound of getting a coin in Mario
*The sound of the lasers in Star Fox
My favorite is the sound of shooting electricity in Infamous. 
Please tell me yours!


  1. I liked the guitar playing dog in Animal Crossing. Also the sound of the people in that game when they caught a fish: woo-hoo woo-hoo.

  2. Cool blog, Pete. I really like the idea of posting on your favorite game elements and I especially love this topic, because game sounds are some of the most delicious things going, at least for me.

    I'd have to say my favorite (recent) game sound is the joyful little "Yamako!" sound gooballs make when they connect with something in World of Goo. It's hard to describe—you have to play it to know what I'm talking about—but I can never help myself from repeating it.

    Oh wait, I've got another one! Do real words count? Have you played Plants vs. Zombies? Sometimes, when the zombies are ambling along in your backyard, they start saying, "Braaaaaiinnnnssss." I love it.

  3. I'm with Peggy. We sometimes make those sounds around the house.

    I also like a lot of the sound effects in Metroid (especially the original). Like when you get an item or turn into a ball.

  4. In Halo 3, my favorite is when you kill an elite and it yells.
