    Love the list.

    Personally, I'll always love the "ka-CHUNK" sound of a new objective in the BioShock series.

    The "yahvis-dice" from Dishonored sound that happens when you activate the Dark Vision power is another personal favorite, but is more of a spoken phrase than a sound effect.

    That crunchy noise when you get a headshot in Gears of War is pretty damn satisfying.
    My artistic integrity is above your criticisms, and beyond your comprehension.

    The beautiful sound of the boat engines whirring away on Hydro Thunder Hurricane of course!

    I expected that to be #1!

    #2 could have even been the sound your Xbox makes when the Hydro Thunder Hurricane game starts up.

    Good list, I would add the eating and drinking sounds from the Dead Rising games. Those games were just full of memorable noises all throughout.

    Can't beat the achievement pop!

    Also, that Dark Souls dying sound has haunted many of my dreams!

    I can relate to a good bunch of these! Great list :)

    I must have heard that Dark Souls noise about a thousand times...
    I'm Commander Shepard, and this is my favourite website on the Citadel.

    Deadspace (1/2/3) - The sound your navigational tool makes when active.
    Bioshock (1) - New objective sound.
    Borderlands (1) - Bloodwing swooping enemies.
    Halo (series) - Plasma grenade explosion / grunt noises.
    Minecraft - Blocks being mined.

    Just the ones that come to mind :3 gotta love that achievement popping sound though. It's my notification noise on my phone :3!

    Good list. I heard most in my head as I went through the list.

    The bleep-bloop can be dissapointing too when you realize it's just a friend coming on-line or another video clip being recorded.

    When you headshot a grunt in Halo with that skull on and confetti pops everywhere.

    maybe because I'm playing the metro redux now, but the good moral point actions sound is pretty memorable. like a drippy faucet in an echo chamber or something, can't quite pin it

    I really enjoyed the Fable 1 "You've received a new quest card", to the point where I made it my text message notification
