Up For Debate - What Are Some of Your Favourite Quotes From Gaming?

Written by Jon Sutton on Sun, Mar 17, 2019 2:42 PM

Fantastic, memorable games writing is a rare thing. It’s not something that can just be conjured on a whim with the absolute knowledge that it’ll embed itself into popular culture. But plenty of games do still manage to weave in iconic, unforgettable lines that are forever inked in our minds.

Some of them are so etched into our brains that you don’t even need to have played the games to have stumbled upon them countless times. Oftentimes they don’t even need to be good, but something about them just sticks in our mind.

War, war never changes. Thank you, Mario, but our princess is in another castle.  You were almost a Jill sandwich. It’s Super Effective! It’s time to kick ass and chew bubble gum…and I’m all outta gum. The cake is a lie.

I’m guessing a lot of you can name the games these quotes are from without even breaking a sweat. I’ve also just realised that putting food in a quote instantly makes it more memorable, or I’m just too greedy for my own good.

I’ve taken the low hanging fruit with my quotes (there we go with the food again), but what are some of your favourite video game quotes of all time? They can be wacky, dramatic, unheard of even, but what are some of your favourite pearls of wisdom from games?

"I've seen your kind; time and time again. Every fleeing man must be caught, every secret must be unearthed; such is the conceit of the self-proclaimed seeker of truth. But in the end, you lack the stomach; for the agony that you'll bring upon yourself."
