What's your ringtone?

by nightrnr Tue Nov 23, 2021 12:38 am

My ringtone is currently
Mega Man (GB) Wily level
https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=bIYketbtjPM

Seems to fit so well as it's immediately upbeat, fun, and somewhat obscure (your typical Mega Man fan wouldn't be able to place it).

And just for fun:
My notification sound is:
"Someone shot the food" from Gauntlet.
...just another lost soul...

Leonard Cohen - Nevermind from True Detective 2

In general, this series has a lot of cool songs and a great soundtrack. I have had it for several years now and I see no reason to change it

I have the Vampire Savior character select music for when my wife calls. I used to have the Darius coin sound for texts but that got really annoying. I've had trouble finding high quality coin jingles and arcade short-tunes to select for rings.

Mine was this for a while...

But then I changed it to this...

I like them because they sound like cheesy ringtones that come with a phone, so most people are unaware that it's from a video game.

LOL, didn't mean it like that. That trilogy is my favorite video game music, with 2 specifically probably being my favorite. Musically, David Wise influenced me tremendously.

I'm just teasing. It's great stuff, but it really does sound like it could fit in with ringtones. Especially that first link you posted.

I myself just use a simple ringing tone (Atomic Bell on the Galaxy phones). I have thought about using the Meta Gear Solid alert for notifications, but I take a much more relaxed approach to those, and the alert is just too high energy for a text or simple app update.

You don’t want the Codec ring for texts?

Nice ringtone selections, Ziggy and nightrnr! I'm boring and usually keep my phone on the vibrate function. Got so used to keeping it in that mode.

Not video game music, but back in the day I had a MIDI version of the Mobb Deep - Shook Ones Pt. II instrumental which I used for my ringtone for a few years.
