Your Favourite Gaming Quotes

Post by bonerlaw » Thu Dec 05, 2013 2:45 pm

Apologies if this is the wrong topic area, but what are some of your favourite quotes from gaming?

The obvious ones are things like "all your base are belong to us"

But I always loved "Operation initiated, rescue all hostages" from the start of Operation Thunderbolt!

And: "Guybrush Threepwood? Thats the most ridiculous name ive ever heard!"
"Whats yours then?"
"Mancomb Seepgood"

Love it!

Couple more Monkey Island ones:

Guybrush: I'm on a whole new adventure.
Bart: Growing a moustache?
Guybrush: No. Bigger than that.
Bart: A beard?!

Guybrush: You’re about as fearsome as a doorstop.
Murray the demonic talking skull: Is it a really evil-looking doorstop?


The beginning of Blood Omen: Legacy of Kain has one of my favourite moments:

Barkeep: "The tavern's closing - best be on your way, stranger"
Kain: "What, no mug of ale for a weary traveler from distant Coorhagen? I can reward you well, for I am of noble blood"
Barkeep: "I stay open for no man in these dark times. Things come with the night that no sane man would welcome."
Kain: "And so I left - cold of heart and soul. Forced to the road, and the long, bitter night."

WRONG - It's actually voiced by Jonathan Ross and he says "Wise fwom your gwave"

Although not originally a videogame quote, I still love " It's time to kick ass and chew bubblegum......and I'm all out of gum" from Duke Nukem

"Please don't thank me. In fact, "Don't touch my moustache" - Sodom in Street Fighter Alpha 3

"I'll feel great after I kill everything in this world" - B.B Hood from Darkstalkers

"You must defeat Sheng Long to stand a chance" - Boris Johnson, sorry, I mean Ryu in Street Fighter II

The Monkey Island series has loads but picking from some other games:

"Between you and us, that thing that killed you was a total d1ck. Please disregard this message if you committed suicide"

"The Hyperion corporation reminds you that all spawncampers will be banned from this plane of existence"

"The Hyperion corporation is sure none of that was your fault"

"Would you kindly"

"War, war never changes"

"Wait, that's not how it happened"

"Eat sh*t and die" - Duke Nukem 3D

"You cannot escape from death" - Geese Howard
Retro is a state of mind, and cares not for your puny concepts like dates and calendars.
