    tbh i cant choose. so many games sound nice these days, its hard to pick just one.
    one thing i do remember, farcry1 at the time it was released it was head and shoulders above the rest at that point.
    when playing in 5.1 or 7.1 (if supported) everything seems just awesome these days. really like its happening in the same room.
    kind of annoying with some games, as some have some sounds as my doorbell. :D

    lolololololol

    So true.

    Playing Bulletstorm and Mass Effect 2, the sound quality and surrouns mix is very nice, then I play some older games and it's multichannel stereo only and compressed MP3 sound, the difference in sound quality is bigger than the visual difference even.......

    I suppose it doesn't matter much if you're rocking 2.1 satellite speakers, but when you have my stereo......it makes a difference

    You do know that sounds in ME2 are highly compressed too and 32Khz? That annoys me greatly; it doesn't sound that good.

    @Anarion

    Well they certainly don't sound compressed, it sounds better than most games, Crysis for example sounds far worse.

    I just found this over at the Metro.co.uk gaming section. Worth mentioning since so many gurus have said BFBC2 has the best (use of) sound.
