Max Payne has some beautiful writing and good narration, I remember:

But dreams have a nasty habit of going bad when you're not looking. The sun went down with practiced bravado. Twilight crawled across the sky, laden with foreboding.

As already mentioned, Vae Victis!
Powerslave/Exhumed intro on PC. It starts with a wimpy laugh showing lobotomy’s logo and then right after that *** skull thing shows up and goes MUHAHAHAHAHA!
Random fart noises in Atari 2600 games, usually those meant you did something wrong.
Lots and lots of fighting game sounds and voices

I like spotting sound samples from games in other places - I've heard the rusty door open / close sounds from FarCry in countless movies and TV shows. And of course the various monster groans from DOOM - some of the imp sounds are often used for camels 😀

Life? Don't talk to me about life.

Yes, this is interesting and I have done the same after I watched a documentary on the Wilhelm scream years ago.

NES Contra level end jingle. Doom baron of hell acknowledge sound. And somehow I just love Carolco intro sound.

I am aroused about any X86 motherboard that has full functional ISA slot. I think i have problem. Not really into that original (Turbo) XT,286,386 and CGA/EGA stuff. So just a DOS nut.
