I still smile a little when I hear the PS1 boot-up, which is probably because it was the first game console I owned.

I went out of my way to get the PlayStation anniversary wallpaper for my PS4 because when you login it plays the classic opening.

Good times.

The SEGA logo does inspire the warm tingles for me, as does the original Xbox and Windows 3.1, 95, or 98 boot up sounds. Though it's not quite the same thing, I also take massive damage from the old Cyan logo:

I love that little sound clip so much. Twisted Metal 2, Tomba!, Tony Hawk's Pro Skater...so many fantastic memories.

After reading all this, I'm thinking I should buy all my favorite video games and consoles for the sake of re-living my childhood.
