Pixelitis Picks: The corniest game dialogue ever

"Some people can’t act worth a damn (except for Andrew, he was a theater kid in high school).

This is especially true in the realm of videogames, particularly in the 90s, where the idea of real voices permeating through our TV speakers as we played was a sight to behold. The reasoning behind bad acting in games can be a bevy of things: budget constraints, poor writing/localization or unqualified actors. Even fantastic voice actors like Paul Eiding (of Metal Gear Solid fame) can’t shine if the quality of the writing is cringe-worthy.

Even so, bad game dialogue can be a blessing in that it can create some of the most unintentionally hilarious moments while one plays. Love it or hate it, games have it in spades, and so we’d like to share some of that cheese with you.

Please feel free to leave your own favorite example of awful game dialogue and/or voice acting on the comments section of our page."

I remember playing the Cursed Crusade demo and came across this gem "But Milord, they rain arrows down upon us like a pissing cow."

Aw man, I saw the RE photo and expected a line from there. I can't remember but I remember odd pauses when he talked to Jill about the lockpick

That's hilarious, when I read the Title and intro, the first game that popped into my head was Castlevania: SOTN. Then what do you know, it was the first game in the article.
