Go Gaming Giant looks at the top 5 video game quotes this generation.
Duke Nukem got released on XBLA this generation, he should be there!
lol true, but we only looked at games that came out this generation, things like Duke Nukem don't count
Good list, but seriously, you should'a checked some of Visari's quotes, he was the only reason why I got to the end of Killzone just to hear his words. http://www.youtube.com/watc... Hell everything in the Killzone universe is quotable, except for Rico, that prick needs to quote a bullet to his face.
Halo 3 had some great ones. "Wake me, when you need me." Or, "You are ALL of you vermin! Cowering in the dirt thinking, what? I wonder? That you might escape the coming fire? No! Your world will burn until its surface is but glass! And not even your Demon will live to creep, blackened from its hole to mar in the reflection of our passage...the culmination of our Journey. For your destruction is the will of the Gods! And I? I AM their instrument!" Or, "With my gentle encouragement, our Lords' holy relic springs to life. It is...unfortunate that our enemies also bear witness to its glory, but soon their dull eyes will be closed; seared by the Rings unforgiving light." Very epic stuff. Terrance Stamp does some amazing voice work.
First one came to my mind when I clicked on this was "welcome to america" ahah that stuck in my head for many months. I loved that :) . But yeah there was a lot of good ones and Killzone should have had on in there. But i also think the new batman has some great ones :) "Played you like a violin and cut your strings" haha I love it :)
Eye Have You.
"Don’t ever wrestle with a pig. You’ll both get dirty, but the pig will enjoy it."
I still don't understand that MGS4 quote :(
basically it is saying that whoever controls wars controls history thus war becomes routine since the same faction is controlling it and the outcome will definitely be the same in favor of the powerful in our world the USA and in MGS world, well the USA again(The Patriots) :P The first part about nanomachines describes how The Patriots manages their own army and weapons and have control of the battlefield by controlling their men via technology and science. Hope you get it.
Thanks for the input man! Bubbles for you
lol that's hilarious. MGS4 gets quoted a paragraph, while the other games gets a sentence. Surely they could have just picked one part of it. And I especially like how quote 1 is "War never changes" then quote 5 is "War has changed"
ye we could have but we didn't want to break up the quote, it was such a great quote
Oh I agree, it's a good quote. I just have a stupid sense of humor. Don't mind me.
The problem with 1 is that it is essentially just paraphrasing Fallout. "War never changes" is a direct quote from Fallout.
I personally like the Bioshock one. Never saw that coming.
LOL they forgot the halo 3 machinima quote: My roflcopter goes soi soi soi. And how could they forget HL2 zombie quote: Yabba my icing!
machinima doesn't count and HL2 was not really this generation
Plus, that HL2 quote, really isnt a serious quote. They didnt do funny quotes.
Would you kindly?
"Snake its time to swap out the disk to recieve further instruction. Oh wait, this is PS3, we don't have to swap out disks anymore."
HAHA! when i heard otacon say that, i cracked up!
"A man without a past fight for a world without future" - Lost Odyssey
MGS4 one of the best games ever. Only on PS3.
Uncharted and Heavenly Sword had some good ones too, most of the ps3 exclusives have some great lines Your avatar reminds me, GOW3 should have some epic quotes as well, can't wait.
Agree MGS4 is a great game.
wow I forgot about some of them, good article.
Look at all dat juice!
My favorite was "Food man. Hot Food. All day long."-Dom
"Yankee shankidora" (or something like that) "I'm British you muppet." Who here can guess what game that's from?
I loved that line.
"I had it all under control until they blew up the boat!" "Keep smiling Asshol* I'm coming back for you later" "A man only interested in the climax, must be a real hit with the ladies" On the burning plane: "Easy, just jump, count to five, and pull the cord (jumps) ahhh ONETWOTHREEFOURFIVE (see's hole in parachute) ahhhhhh CRAP CRAP CRAP CRAP CRAP!" And a load others that I don't have the time to type. Uncharted should have a quote list all too itself.
"...Take his wallet." "You're all heart, Sully."
You forgot, "I'm going to kick you to sleep."
"Snake its time to swap out the disk to recieve further instruction. Oh wait, this is PS3, we don't have to swap out disks anymore." lol found this in the gamer zone, so true :P
"Snake its time to swap out the disk to recieve further instruction. Oh wait, this is PS3, we don't have to swap out disks anymore lets just install it and wait 14 min." So true.
Put my "dvd" of Gears 2 in.. oh sh1t. another RROD. [email protected]@rts!
Elena: "You owe me one" LOL. Valkyria Chronicles: "Even in war there's new life"
Not a bad list, sure there are one liner from a number of smaller games that would make them in (some of Heavenly Sword would fit) but many of these are certainly some of the most narrative driven/heavy games of the generation.
Visari "Our guns never tire"
This article pretty much completely ruins the story of BioShock, and does so without any warning. If you ever plan to play that game, I'd avoid reading this. Otherwise, it's a pretty good article.
Or you open your eyes and read "SPOILERS AHEAD" and than don't read it. Or maybe that's just me...
i'm no hero.. never was... never will be... (MGS4) and this is true he never was a hero, he was killing mashine to do some wet work.
It's a great quote, as are so many in MGS4. *spoilers* The most memorable quote for me was Otacon's "Snake had a hard life" speech (at ending). It connects the beginning of the game to the end, and is probably the most emotional quote of the game, at least when he says it again at the end.
haha awesome "would you kindly" and my personal favorite has been my e-mail tag on hotmail since like 2006/2007 from Bioshock as well: "City where the artist would not be censored, where the scientist would not be bound by petty morality, where the great would not be constrained by the small" Personally I ME ME ME I think Bioshock is the best game I've ever played. No game has ever made me actually think about my life and have an impact on me. Kind of goes into the human psyche and shows how screwed up we really are as a people that we would go through such lengths to try and be "perfect"
You should probably read the book that Bioshock was based off of.
what book is that? or is that just a novel written about the story of Bioshock? I'm very intrigued
I saw it on an article on gamesradar a while back, I'll try to find it right now. It's not about Bioshock though, I remember they were talking about a specific book that pretty much had the same ideas in it though. EDIT: I can't find the exact article but I'm pretty sure the book mentioned in it was "Atlas Shrugged" by Ayn Rand. Here's a description of it from wikipedia: "The plot involves a dystopian United States in which the most creative industrialists, scientists and artists go on strike and retreat to a mountainous hideaway where they build an independent free economy. The novel's hero and leader of the strike, John Galt, describes the strike as "stopping the motor of the world" by withdrawing the "minds" that Rand saw as contributing the most to the nation's wealth and achievement. With this fictional strike, Rand intended to illustrate that without the efforts of the rational and productive, the economy would collapse and society would fall apart."
awesome thank you very much!
I really need to REplay MGS4 ... it's such an amazing game.
"this is the year of the ps3" that quote from droids cracks me up :P
"This is the year of the PS3."
"the 360 RROD is well behind us" ha ha Aaron Greenberg crack me up get a life bot
i really liked the dialog in bioshock. damn near perfect. "a man chooses, a slave obeys." just amazing. i think there was a mention of parasites too. i also liked some of the things visari said in killzone 2. "we shall unleash such terrible vengeance, that generations yet unborn shall cry out in anguish!" and doesn't anyone else see the irony of fallout 3 and MGS4's quote of how war has changed/war never changes?
All swell quotes, I was fersure that it'd include the war never changes from fallout and the cake is a lie. :)
My personal favorite is the quote "War has changed"
I'm completely late on this, but I must say this is an amazing article.
COMPLETE. GLOBAL. SATURATION! Epic :D
"You must defeat sheng long to stand a chance." Fighting game fans the world over know what that is from.
"It's time to take Zero back...to nothing." MGS4
Even the best Quote was only available "Only On PlayStation3"
PlayStation only does. EVERYTHING! including quotes. next big quote: Zeus!! U dare to DEFY ME!? THE GOD OF WAR!?
I.. am... KRATOS!!! PS3 has risen above all. Was only a matter of time.
Best MGS quote ever: !
Chronicles of Riddick: Escape from Dark Athena was full of great quotes.
Master Chief!! O wait Master Chief can't talk imao.
uh he talks in every game...
does EVERY post have to involve this retarded fanboy war?
Obviously, the MGS quote is taken from the trailer since the dude most likely hasn't played the game. Also, look at this: 1. “The struggle for humanity is a war without end. And war……war never changes”. (Fallout 3) 5. ” War has changed. It’s no longer about nations, ideologies, or ethnicity..." (Metal Gear Solid 4) So "War never changes" and "war has changed" are both top quotes? The best quotes of all time are found in the original Metal Gear Solid. That game redifined "epicness".
