* Some server-side ''VideoGame/{{Counter-Strike}}'' mods are designed to play the UT announcer sounds.

* ''VideoGame/LeagueOfLegends'', descended from the previous game, featured an usually female announcer narrating the game (male in a couple regions such as Latin America), only a bit different: four kills in rapid succession are a "QUADRA KILL!", and slaughtering the entire enemy team is a "PENTAKILL!!!". The same announcer also tells important events such as destroyed turrets and destroyed inhibitors, although the Rift Herald, the Dragons and Baron Nashor are not called out but instead signaled by characteristic screams (they are explicitly called out in spectator mode though).

Added DiffLines:

* The ''Fight Night'' series has them, as it's about professional boxing. However, they highly over-exaggerate how powerful attacks are and aren't aware that health regenerates too quickly for anything but haymakers or constant pressure to do anything but be a minor inconvenience.

* Some of the replaceable lines can get interesting in the more recent ProfessionalWrestling games that try to reproduce the announcers' dialogue, including 'witty' banter. A few can get it horribly wrong, as some reviews for ''SmackdownVsRaw 2007'' indicated--typically, in a niche game like this, it helps to actually, you know, get the maneuvers named correctly.

* ''RidgeRacer 64'' has a terrible, over-enthusiastic announcer saying what's going on during the race. Thankfully, he doesn't chatters too much. ''RidgeRacer Type 4'', meanwhile, has a calmer, much better announcer with a deep echo added to his voice. ''Rage Racer's'' announcer is Reiko Nagase herself.

** ''VideoGame/MarvelVsCapcom3'' not only has one announcer whose lines pay homage to ''Alpha 3'' and ''[=CvS2=]'', but the latest builds also have [[Creator/KateHiggins a second announcer]] (who sounds like Issun from ''{{Okami}}'') who runs commentary throughout the match, commenting on how the fighters fare and their strategies akin to the aforementioned ''Capcom vs. SNK 2'' announcer. (Issun doesn't have any audible speech, merely providing the text for Amaterasu's victory quotes.)

* ''DefenseOfTheAncients'' and ''VideoGame/{{Dota2}}'' started the tradition of always having an announcer narrate the games in the MOBA genre. The original map started out with ''{{Unreal}}'''s announcer calling out kill streaks (Killing spree! > Rampage! > Dominating!...) and kills in rapid succession (Double kill! > Triple kill! > M-M-M-M-MONSTER KILL! > HOLY SHIT!); when Valve took over the game, they added other well known voices of theirs such as [[VideoGame/{{Portal}} GLaDOS]] or the announcer from ''VideoGame/TeamFortress2''.

* ''{{Mechwarrior}} 4: Mercenaries'' has Solaris announcer Duncan Fisher, a former Solaris champion that would talk while you fight through the Mech dueling circuit, often talking about things other than the fight, like a scandal where a famous pilot threw a match, or on the talent pool this year, and would follow you as moved from the Light Mech catagory to Solaris Champion.
** The team behind the Mechwarrior: Living Legends TC for Crysis Wars actually managed to get the voice actor of Duncan Fisher to record new lines for the Solaris Arena gamemode.

* In RealLife, this sometimes happens near the end of a blowout. For example, near the end of a [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4jFfdagwzrA Wisconsin-Michigan St. game]] on ESPN had CaptainObvious himself, Brent Musburger and Steve Lavin killing the final two minutes rambling about everything from Website/YouTube (including a brief mention of sideline reporter and resident MsFanservice Erin Andrews) to Creator/SylvesterStallone using human growth hormone for one of the ''Film/{{Rocky}}'' films (causing an audible groan from Musberger, who had a [[TheCameo cameo]] in the second movie).

* ''VideoGame/TeamFortress2'' has the slightly psychotic female announcer, [[http://www.teamfortress.com/war/administrator/ The Adminstrator]], who runs both sides. When a checkpoint is captured, she's more encouraging to the successful attackers and scornful to the failing defenders, and, if the round ends in a tie, dismisses ''both'' sides with a frustrated "You ''failed!!''". She doesn't keep her contempt for both teams a secret and it's hardly surprising that she has the [[Creator/EllenMcLain same voice actress]] as GLaDOS from ''VideoGame/{{Portal}}'' (and the Combine Overwatch in ''VideoGame/HalfLife2'').
