This reminds me of those old games where every sound effect was the same. When I was a kid we had a floppy drive with a bunch of DOS games on it One was Nightmare 3D, which my brother and I loved playing. The sound effects for each of the different bad guys was the same. For example, skeletons would rattle, mummies would moan, etc. The sound was great because you wouldn't always see the bad guys before they saw you and they would make a sound when they first noticed your existence.

I remember at once point, we were in a maze or something. Bushes everywhere. We thought that we had already gone down the path so we run full speed ahead into a huge open area with about 100 skeletons waiting for us. If we had crept around the corner, only a few would have seen us at a time. But we ran straight through them, causing all 100 skeletons to wake up at once and igniting a rapid fire, glitching echo of the single rattling sound effect.
