I just got a new smart phone (finally) and was trying to think up some good video game ringtones and notification sounds. I currently have Castlevania (NES) Vampire Killer for my ringtone and Protoman's Whistle as my alert. What do you guys have?

I know a lot people have that Metal Gear Solid codec SFX, which is cool, but somebody at work has it and would be a little redundant.

I do have MGS Codec as my text message alert.

My wife's ringtone is the Final Fantasy 'Prelude'.

For quick alerts, I like things like Zelda's 'open a chest', or Final Fantasy 'won the battle' theme.

You cant go wrong with SMB 1up mushroom sound.

I've got the MGS codec on mine. I tried to do the Super Mario World notification box noise for my text messages, but it was just too short of a noise.

A friend has his text set to Navi "Hey! Listen!". It's annoying.

The soothing sound of a codec from MGS.

Right now I'm using the SNES-era Capcom jingle, but for the longest time I used "It's a Sonny" from PixelJunk Monsters:

The tinymedal noise from older Dragon Quest games makes a great text alert.

I have Bloody Tears from Castlevania 2 as my ringtone, and the Zelda "got item" for text messages.

Even though it's a bit cheesy I had the Final Fantasy 4 Fanfare for a ringtone for a while, like in FF7:AC.

When Gamecrazy was still around in Old Bridge, NJ, one of the kids there had the "!" alert from MGS for text messages.

I now use the beginning of Xpander(from Wipeout) where the chick says "I need somebody who can move" for my message alerts.

if you want to go real old school, the pager tone from GTA3

Before my iphone, I had the MGS codec sound for my text messages. Some at school had the coin sfx from Mario which is neat.

Ha, that's my ringtone, too. I always get the strangest looks when I forget to put it on vibrate in public.

I'm totally stealing the ME2 notification idea. I've used the victory fanfare from FF7 for forever and I'm tired of it.

I have the theme song from One Piece: Unlimited Adventure (Wii) as my ringtone since 2009 (when I got a phone where I could put custom ringtones on). I never have got to play the game due to its rarity, but I'm a huge One Piece fan and always loved this theme.

First 30 seconds of the video.

I highly considered getting the MGS codec as a ringtone last year when I played the series for the first time (beat all 4 games in a month, whatta month that was!) but ultimately didn't after having trouble finding a good sounding one and in retrospect that was probably for the best, I wouldn't want that sound to ever get annoying.

I use the MGS codec because I wanted something that sounded like a phone and not a jingle.

I got the killing spree from halo as my notification sound and Mario bros theme as a ringback when I get calls o and big bang theory theme as my ringtone

I'm currently using the Uncharted theme as my ringtone. I switch my notification sounds and ringtones all the time though.

Defender person abduction as my text alert, Defender opening music as my ringtone. I really wanted Robotron sound from between levels, but can only find the music with the brains sound combined and I don't like it as much.


My son has Pokemon evolution as text message and one of the other music as ringtone.

I use this for my text notification. I use "Yell Dead Cell" (MGS2) for my alarm. And I'm still looking for a good one to use as my actual ringtone

My phone has a few on it. I use the MSG codec as my fiance's text tone, and random games are the rings. TMNT Arcade game Boss music for my mother, Sonic the Hedgehog for Master System, Sky Base theme is another notable.
