For me it would have to be the sound when you complete or receive a quest in Fallout 3.

I love hearing Marcus Fenix yell while chainsawing. Makes me happy in my pants.

Speaking of sound, does anyone remember the game Black for original Xbox? Apparently it's arguably one of the best games to have been made for the old nv2x 'box... and the sound is said to have been uniquely set up...

Realising in the chaos of a heavy gun battle the heavy mix of sound and music would produce a cacophony of noise, the sound designers developed the "choir of guns" concept. Whereas, traditionally in a shooter game, each weapon model would be assigned a different sound, Black assigns each enemy their own "voice", similar to the way in which each member of a choir would have their own distinct voice. For example, there are three enemies firing, one would be assigned a low voice, another a medium voice, and the third a high voice. This allows all the weapons being fired in any particular scene to harmonise and deliver a distinct sound for the game. Black's sound was nominated for Best Audio at 2006 BAFTA Video Games Awards, and won Best Art & Sound jointly with Burnout Revenge at the 2006 Develop Industry Excellence Awards.

The music for Black was composed by Chris Tilton, using a theme co-authored with Oscar-nominated composer Michael Giacchino. It was recorded at the Newman Scoring Stage.[6] A soundtrack album was released on iTunes by Nettwerk Records.

Anyone ever play this and notice the sound being at all exceptional? Sorry for the slightly OT, but hey, this is about sound!

Uhm, we're talking about sound, not words.

The announcer from TFC used the computer voice from Half-Life. Very memorable.
