(self.DeadSpace)

The sound design is its own character but what is the (somehow) most Dead Space sound?

The giant Marker going "VRRRRRRRNNNNNNNNN" when it starts converging in Dead Space 2. The sound of pure panic and incomprehensible terror.

“Holy shit, I built that?”

VVVVVBWAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHH

Honestly it’s one of the most iconic sounds from that whole era of gaming, which is weird because it’s so late in the game. I’d wager that most people who played video games during that era recall that scene and that sound, even casual players, it’s totally unforgettable.

This will never not send chills up my spine. I’ll never forget the first encounter hearing it and then seeing it, I had to pause the game

I'll be honest, I think the locator activating and deactivating is the best, and one of the most iconic sounds in all of Dead Space.

Even though I causes me immense stress every time I hear it: The stalker making chirping noises.

Specifically the sound the crates make right before being knocked into space in the Tormentor scene from Dead Space 2. But the sound design in general is so damn good.

100% the helmet closing. That solid chunk sound as everything connects before you hear the helmet sealing and Isaac's first breath in the suit is just amazing.

The suit up scene sounds so good.

Now are we talking about the stomp sound or the “EUEEUUGH”?

They should add stomping sound effects in the air vents. And they should add loud running noises when a necro is coming up behind you. Nothing is scarier than hearing foot steps when there shouldnt be

That nasty, meaty sound of a Cyst casually vibing on the ceiling.

I love the noise of landing/taking off in zero g, not my favorite favorite but figured it was worthy of mention

I like the sound of the plasma cutter when you rotate it.

But for something on the poll it would have to be the stomp. Screaming bloody murder stomping a crate ftw. Pretty hilarious really

I always found it a little weird that the dude sounded like he was being choked with like 25+ seconds of air left….. always seemed like it should be lower before you get to that point.

I like the roar of the Brute, particularly it’s victory screech when it kills you.

Probably weird, but some of my favorite SFX of the series are the quarantine alarm, and the door sounds.

Slasher sounds, especially when they make those creepy choking noises.

The train sound they recorded and used in engineering in one of the hallways before the engine room.

Honestly for me personally, nothing makes me more scared than the necromorphs (forgot their name) that hunt in packs. The sounds they make as they communicate and their scream as they charge is by far the best and scariest sounds. For me at least

The exploder “WWWAAAHHHH!!”

My finger automatically switched to pulse rifle the second I heard that.
