I am a fully grown 27 year old adult male. I have a BA is Child and Youth Care. I have a professional job working for a non-profit organization. I have a wife and a small family and I am generally a mild-mannered individual.

Now please forget all of these things as you imagine me adding sound effects to the following games, mostly on an involuntarily basis.

Playing as the corporation or a runner it make no difference when it comes to sound effects. The runners seem to lend themselves to the sounds of keyboard typing and ice-shattering. When installing a piece of hardware I usually hear myself giving it a "powering up" sound, making it ready for use, obviously.

The corporation mostly makes sound effects when installing a piece of ice. The type of ice will modify the sound that escapes my mouth when it is being installed

Sound Effect Level: 9 (Out of 10)

A visit to the dungeon in this game can get pretty noisy as there is a lot going on at once. We have: the equipping of weapons, magic vs. physical attack, spells, light, battle effects, defeating monsters, curses, familiars...WHOO! This S**t's getting real!

Now, with this game, I have seen few people play this WITHOUT making sound effects. So essential are the human-added sound effects to this game that I am fairly certain that the rules state you must make some kind of noise when playing. Ah, here it is found in the rulebook:
Quote:
"Between each program ensure that the active player produces a sound-effect that is befitting of the circumstances currently being encountered by your robot" For Example: If your robot has fired at another robot you must produce the appropriate sound. Variations in pitch and volume may be experienced. Failure to do so kicks you out of the game and you will be asked to leave the table and quite possibly the generally vicinity of the playing area"


In this case I am only following the rules to there really isn't anything out of the ordinary.

There is absolutely nothing about this game that is sound worthy.

Spoiler (click to reveal)
PSYCHOLOGICAL!!!


This is one big mix of gadget appropriate sounds and trucker related banter.

Gadget sounds:
1)Over half my ship is blown off by a large meteor
2)A boarding party spreads disease and I loose most of my crew
3)My neighbor spots an error right off the bat. That a crucial piece of my ship is removed and I am left with an engine, my main cockpit and a universal socket...not speaking from experience of course.
4)I actually do manage to thwart a small meteor with a shield
5)Open space = Thrusters!!

I haven't played this one and reall I think it might be challenging to find someone to play with me. From box-fart-open to box-fart-close there will be one long continuous tie fighter flying through space screech. I would also need vocal chord surgery afterwards.

Orcs vs. Humans? Chaos vs. Skaven? Head-to-head action? Bloody-blowl awesomenessess?

BB:TM is some great fun for a soundbyte like myself. With the addition of the Vampires in the Sudden Death expansion this game has been pushed over the top of greatness. Now there are downed skills too. Just when you think I've been tackled, guess what {insert old-school windows reboot sound here} I'm back!

There is nothing quite as satisfying as pretending to shoot your friends in the wild-west. Just make sure you are within range to ensure that the spittle reaches across the table to add to the wound your opponent just received; just hope it is one of the outlaws or you might find yourself be shining the Marshall's shoes or worse.

Did you know that monsters make sounds? Some of them are really slimy, too. And there's stuff like doors locking and winds howling. Plenty of sounds in an old mansion.

One cannot simply toss people into the volcano without sound effects.

Maniacal evil laughter or helpless pleas for mercy (never granted of course) are required by house rule.

From the grating of the walls closing in at the beginning to the ominous thunder of the giant boulder threatening to flatten the laggards. The Temple of Chac is full of sound.

I think this is the only game I make sound effects for, but I do it every single time. Every time a zombie moves I am compelled to make a groaning noise, or moan "braiiiiins".

Not just the start of my turn, mind you. Whenever a zombie moves. People tend to not play this with me very much anymore.

Everytime the Worm Hole card appears I uncontrollably go: "Whoosh whoosh whoosh" in a high-pitched and very shrill voice. I don't know why and it's just something that I did from the very first time I played the game.

I mean seriously, what's the point in playing if you can't swagger your monster around and let out a good roar--even if you're the Cyber Bunny? (Did you know that the movie Godzilla is in the Criterion Collection? http://www.criterion.com/films/27755 )
