Here is a Yuletide log for your holiday delectation.
Heavy, Machine Gun!

Tell us which video-game sounds or voice-clips are the most burned into your brain for life.
Maybe it's not the game you played the most, but a certain sound or voice-clip still attached itself to you permanently, and from time-to-time - even decades later - that clip will pop back into your head and play itself randomly.
Here is an odd example for me: 13-14yo, the 1990's had just arrived, and my first local arcade had a terrible Street Fighter 1 cabinet, and my friends and I learned how to dragon punch (etc) on it. The cabinet had a woeful single speaker, no treble, and was somehow simultaneously both hard-to-hear and boomy-and-annoying. We would lose to the CPU often, and the post-fight losing scene is for no good reason at all forever stuck in my brain to resurface at random moments in excruciating fine detail, this low-fi booming You've got a lot to learn before you beat me. Try again kid(do) heh-heh-heh-heh.... <Continue Timer counts down>
