If you are a classic video game fan, you have probably spent many hours playing “Golden Axe”. It is a fun multi-player beat ’em up, with interesting gameplay and impressive graphics for its time. It also has some really unusual sounds. Most notable are the screams and grunts you hear when you defeat villains. I had always though those sounds were just something that had been created for the game, but after watching a video posted on YouTube by SUB ZERO LIN KUEI I know differently.
These sounds that stood out, even in a very loud late eighties arcade, were pulled from movies like First Blood and Conan the Barbarian, and are illustrated in the video below. After watching it, you might never hear Golden Axe the same way again.
