I saw this link earlier — a video which mixes Battlefield 3 visuals with NES sounds — and what blew me away, when I finally got round to watching it, is just how good the NES sound effects are, and how well they fit!
It sounds good! I'd actually play a game that used sound design in an inventive way like this. Why not? I love the sound of the explosions. Somehow it sounds like the noise a child would make with a toy gun.
