I have to say, there are a few incredible games that I just cannot play because the callouts and/or music just drive me nuts. I happen to be one of those folks who gets music stuck in my head - I think it's called getting an earworm.
So for instance: Lord Of The Rings is a very good game and I happen to be a fan of the theme. But those callouts! "2 Souls of man!" "3 Souls of Man" . . . AARRGGH! And I had a Metallica, which I loved, but I really don't care for heavy metal music. So although I truly enjoyed playing it I'd turn the music off and listen to something else while playing it. THAT didn't last. Really detracts from the intended theme. Sold it.
What callouts/music have kept you from playing/enjoying/buying a game?

Shaq Attaq - "Shoot The Basket" and "Shoot The Spinner" ultimately drove me to sell this game. Game itself wasn't bad but the audio drove me nuts.

Guardians of the Galaxy - the Micheal Roker mode saying "bobbily Bo Bo bo" over and over every time you hit a switch drives me insane.

"Shoot the pyramid!"

And pretty much all of them from Scared Stiff. That lady sure is annoying.

It can get really repetitive but I don't think it's that bad.

XMEN is very bad, not so much because of what they're saying but the terrible voice actor delivery.

Yeah: "Oh god! Stop the spider!". Thinking of increasing the number of ramp shots before the spider hole lits.

I do however love the "that's a huge bon-eh-us!"

The callouts on LOTR are extremely well done and MET is pretty good.

XMEN, GOTG, DI, and Black Night all drive me crazy.

Wipeout.

Shut your dirty mouth!

Scared Stiff's callouts are incredible. All of them, but especially the Stiff!

TMNT is pretty rough. "Excellent!" "Whoa!" "Awesome!" And a tinny, repetitive soundtrack.

Dialed In puts me to sleep and Big Bang Bar makes me cringe

World Poker Tour grated on me quickly.

I hate hearing PotC being played. Enough so that i basically never play it myself except when forced to.

#18 2 years ago

GOTG because at this point, there is no excuse. Older games get somewhat of a pass.

#19 2 years ago

The Walking dead. But cleland and other users who made modified pinball files made it 10x better.

#20 2 years ago

Xmen - callouts. Atrocious.

#21 2 years ago

Dr Who for me.
So much so I can't be in the same room as one as I cringe too much.

Black Knight's are annoying after a while.

Guardians of the Galaxy is the easy "winner" in this regard. The sound package is independent of what you're doing, and it's not dynamic. A scene starts and just KEEPS PLAYING. There's nothing telling you what to hit or what your shots are doing in the mode. It's just a movie scene, playing. There's absolutely no reason to do this. Literally every other pinball machine in the solid state era does a better job indicating through sounds what you're shooting than Guardians does.

Big Bang Bar? I guess we all have different opinions but to me it has some of the best call outs.

Music in Judge Dredd is hideous. Equally bad is the “saxaphoney” music in Jackbot, totally not aligned with the sci-fi robot theme.

"Shoot the pyramid" is the worst

I don’t understand the hate for LOTR call outs. Gimili has some of the best call outs in Pinball!

That said; my vote for worst call outs is T3.

#32 2 years ago

Dr Who. Sold mine because of the friggin audio.

#33 2 years ago

WPT: bad call outs + music from what I remember, ear wrenching. And I used to watch world poker tour on tv all the time.

#34 2 years ago

Hmmm... nothing from anyone about the old bleeps and ching ching ching... ? Maybe us old guys of the pre-vocal soundcard (and no sound card) era have got something. interesting thread... I'll think twice and read this again if I am considering buying a talkin' pin!

Maybe but I know you "love" the music in Jokerz too.

Medieval Madness...
every hit is a JAAAACKPOOOOOT . Boring.

Jokerz is a menace. When that attract music goes off, it will clear a room quickly. SO LOUD.

Got old real fast

Agree with Dr. Who. Might feel differently if I knew the show, but those high-pitched static monsters screeching whatever they're screeching is nails on chalkboard bad. "Millions!" is fun, though

Fish Tales has pretty awful music. Not sure I'd claim the worst, but it's bad.

How has 24 not been mentioned? ....jackpot... Jackpaaaaht!

#45 2 years ago

Meteors monotone background "music" is probably one of the most annoying things I've come across. GOTG callouts are awful, it's all bickering and yelling. If I wanted to hear that I'd just stay home.

In the shit sound dept. it's hard to stray from DE.
R&B & Simpsons will always be to 2 for me.

I'd take it all day long over Carlene Carter on Roadshow.

#49 2 years ago

I think that's the same lady that did the call outs on Breakshot, and that is THE only reason I got rid of that game. Can't believe I'm thinking about getting another one. That'll learn me!

That's pretty rough too.

Country and pinball don't mix.
