That shit is annoying but sometimes it's necessary.
The worst stuff are lazy things.
Like using the same fucking stock sound effect as everyone.
Like that fucking laughing children soundbite, or the rusty door one that even Half-Life uses.
Also, when characters drink from a can or something, and you can clearly see that it's an empty can.
Would it kill you to fill it with water?
>Like using the same fucking stock sound effect as everyone.
I fucking hate this. I don't know why it annoys me so much. It is as bad as using the same video clip from another movie and passing it off in your own movie. Of which I only know of one instance (one of the Transformers movies), but holy fuck nearly all movies have the same sound sources it seems like sometimes.
There's another scream too a woman scream that is repeated in like everything. I've been hearing it for decades and only now just fucking found it online:
These repeated sounds are used in just about all media I think. I've heard many of them in video games as far back as the original Doom 1 (door sounds for instance).
I think it originally comes from something far older because I think it is in some Star Trek episode when a life pod or cryotable thing opens/closes.
Sound and Foley are the worst represented aspects of film making. It is like they are taking a big shit right in your ear. The more a movie uses rehashed stock sounds the worst that movie is, imho.
the thing is that door sound isn't the only sound from doom that's used everywhere. Many of the demon sounds are used in other places too.
I'm sure some of those sounds existed before doom but they don seem to be widespread until after doom
