Maniac Mansion, when you give a recording of the tentacle mating calls to Green Tentacle. So you don't actually see it, but I'd say getting humped to death has gotta be up there...

Syndicate on the Amiga when your four men get hit by rockets and they are on fire, you click on then and it says on the on screen panel "ON FIRE" and you here them screaming AAAAARRRGGG! AAAAARRRGGG! and finally they disappear into a pile of ash on the ground.

theres nothing more satisfying than hitting the nuke button on lemmings if youve messed up the level.....just the 100 or so screams of "Oh No" and then the exploding lemmings....classic!

One of the Easter Egg deaths in Tomb Raider was holding down several buttons at once to watch Lara instantaniously explode. Always bought a smile to my face....... :twisted:

I think it has to be "Guru Meditation Error" - that always made me smile ;-)
