Favorite video game quote?

My question is: what is your favorite video game quote? My personal favorite is "The evil lawn mower sucks you into its whirling blades. Your body is reduced to a thin slime." It comes from SimAnt, the only game I've ever owned that was older than me.

There's only one rule: you must have played the game and gotten the quote yourself (I don't want to get flooded with AYBABTU).

This is my first thread, so tell me if (when) I do something completely wrong.

EDIT: I found another good one from Final Fantasy Tactics A2. When one of the supporting characters says something extremely optimistic about facing an enormous monster, the main character says "if you've gone crazy, tell me now when there's still time to run."

I am Grahf, the seeker of power. Doth thou desire the power?
My fist is the divine breath!
Blossom, o fallen seed, and draw upon thy hidden powers!!
Grant unto thee the power of the glorious 'Mother of Destruction'!


It's corny, over the top, and accompanied by awesome music. I love it. Oh also, hello XKCD forums.

Not to exclude any other quotes from Grim Fandango of course, what with the whole thing being awesome.

Hmmm. A Combine zombie. That's, that's like a...ah...a Zombine! Right? Heh... Zombine, get it? Heh heh. Okay.


I laughed myself half to death after that (maybe thats why its called half-life). Alyx has the same sense of humor as me (I like puns please dont kill me)

And a few others. I can't recall all of them right now. I'll work on it. (been seperated from my games for a while now).

I enjoyed the beginning and ending stories for all the characters in Twisted Metal: Black.

I'd say that's one of the biggest reasons I liked the game.

As for a compilation of quotes from a game, the funniest thing I've heard is Left 4 Bed (would provide youtube link, but I can't access at work).

That is only a selfish perception of people. Truly skilled trainers should try to win with their favorites. I like your syle. You understand what's important. Good Luck Butch.

I'll just expand that further and say pretty much anything said in any Sam & Max game. I should really get around to playing the new ones.

Sadly, one the first season of the new sam and max games are good, or so I hear. I only bought the first season anyway.

My favorite video game quote was from Realmz, in the bottom-left corner of the main screen. It was elvish-script that said "Realmz is always for apple". Later versions translated it to english. And even later versions turned it into a copywrite notice (as Realmz was infact for both mac and windows at that time).

Or, the entire argument that occurs in Warcraft 2 between the ogre mage's two heads when you click him repeatedly.

"Having a house on this bridge is strangely convenient. You can dump the owner - uh...I mean the garbage right into the water!"

This is from Mario and Luigi: The Superstar Saga. A great line because some random, unimportant citizen in some village sprouts it when you talk to him, and because it doesn't seem to make sense the second time you read it.
