welll...
these werent the sounds I was thinking of before I read it. Funny how they are mostly newer more recent ones.

I would say iconic...

the pitfall sound effect when he jumps on a rope.

the jump sound mario makes in donkey kong (is that the same as super mario?)

those are a couple that should have been honorable mentions.

That's not really a sound effect is it
More of a voice sample.

They had the portal turret, and that is a voice sample.

Half of those are not iconic in my eyes. How its missing the headcrab sound or the headcrab zombie sound is beyond me that sound has scared me shitless so many times *shudders* Ravenholm.

anything with Super Mario Zelda and Pacman is gonna be instantly recognisable

If I was gonna mention a sound effect from Half Life series I would say the sound effect of the crowbar

It just got into my head but where is the damn duckhunt dog in this list.
thebudgetgamer  +   1346d ago
i dont know why but when i think pac man sounds it's the 2600 version that pops up.

Cacodemon death gurgle in the original DOOM. It's just so weird!
MrJack  +   1346d ago
MGS Codec sound?
Pillville  +   1346d ago
Not quite a sound effect, but the "Battle Won" sound/music from all the Final Fantasy games.

The chirp of an actual Metroid.

Link's low health beep in Zelda games.

I always think of that door opening creak sound you hear in games and movies... they have been using that same sound effect for decades.

Does anyone know what I'm referring to?
