You all know by now that I love classic gaming sound effects. Be it a Super Mario extra life tone, a Legend of Zelda secret discovery melody, or a Metroid item collection tune, our gamer brains are packed with short little musical cues and sound effects. The gang at NeoGAF are discussing which of these cues are the very best, hitting titles from Zelda to Street Fighter to Mega Man.
I have a lot of unrealistic dreams, and one of those dreams is to somehow arrange for the Legend of Zelda "opening a treasure chest" tune to play every time I open something. That melody should accompany every opening that reveals something amazing, from unpacking an order from Amazon.com to unhooking a girlfriend's bra. Holding up the revealed item for all to see is optional.
