Can you guess a game from a line of dialogue? (thread game)

I'll go with the easy ones.

sgy0003:
Here are some easy ones to make everyone's lives easierLine 1: "Did I ever tell you about the definition of insanity?"

Far Cry 3

sgy0003:
Line 2: "We must construct additional pylons!"

Starcraft

sgy0003:
Line 3: "I used to be an adventurer like you....Then I took an arrow to the knee"

Skyrim

sgy0003:
Line 4: "Thanks ____, but our princess is in another castle!"

Super Mario Bros.

Here are mine.

Line 1: "Truth is...the game was rigged from the start."

Line 2: "There's nothing to speak about, really. Oh, actually... Something strange did happen. That crow flew off with somebody in its clutches."

Line 3: "You don't have to lie! Go ahead and say it! Or you could just force me. Beat me up like... he... he always did. You only care about yourself, anyway! You disgusting pig!"

JUMBO PALACE:

"Hi-Fi? As in, High in Fiber?

Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory?

Here we go:

"It makes this noise! Goes Ting! Makes a Ting noise! Goes Ting. *Ting* Ah, see? Ting!"

"Wrex."
"Shepard."
"Grunt."
"Shepard"

"Excellent choice, Monsieur! Keep the phaser, you're going to need it."

"Uuff, stepped in some Steiner!"

"For the Emperor!"

Okay, I didn't make it in time last time, so I'll guess these ones.

Silentpony:
"Wrex."
"Shepard."
"Grunt."
"Shepard"

Mass Effect.

Silentpony:
"For the Emperor!"

Oblivion

Silentpony:
"It makes this noise! Goes Ting! Makes a Ting noise! Goes Ting. *Ting* Ah, see? Ting!"

My lines remain the same:

Line 1: "Truth is...the game was rigged from the start."

Line 2: "There's nothing to speak about, really. Oh, actually... Something strange did happen. That crow flew off with somebody in its clutches."

Line 3: "You don't have to lie! Go ahead and say it! Or you could just force me. Beat me up like... he... he always did. You only care about yourself, anyway! You disgusting pig!"

dscross:

New line 1: "Animal Sales was a profitable and prestigious business, since most real animals had died out during the Terran War. There were plenty of electric ones though, powered by rechargeable batteries. No self respecting human would own one of those frauds."

New line 2: "Eager to engage in battle once again, the orcs constructed ships of war to bear them across the great sea. The Orcish warriors yearned for the sounds of battle to fill the air and looked to the far horizon for new blood to spill."

First: Bladerunner, loved that game. :D
Second: Warcraft 2?

New Line One: "This is Rupture Farms. They say it's the biggest meat processing plant on Oddworld. I used to work here."

New Line Two: "AHAHAHAHAHAHAHA HA."

ninja666:

Line 1: "Truth is...the game was rigged from the start."

Line 2: "There's nothing to speak about, really. Oh, actually... Something strange did happen. That crow flew off with somebody in its clutches."

Line 3: "You don't have to lie! Go ahead and say it! Or you could just force me. Beat me up like... he... he always did. You only care about yourself, anyway! You disgusting pig!"

Lets see,
Line 1 is Fallout New Vegas

Line 2 is...no idea...

Line 3 I'm pretty sure is Silent Hill 2 with that crazy lady

Also:

Silentpony:

Line 1 is Fallout New Vegas

Line 2 is...no idea...

Line 3 I'm pretty sure is Silent Hill 2 with that crazy lady

The second line is from Dark Souls. The chainmail-clad guy you meet at Firelink Shrine says that when you talk to him after ringing the first bell. The rest of the answers are correct.

JUMBO PALACE:

gigastar:
"On a distant island, far away from civilization, the protectors of the peace take to the skies."

Is this Crimson Skies?

Nope.

Ill be nice and say that this quote comes from the opening cutscene of this game.

sgy0003:
Line 1: "Don't you remember your duty? Don't you remember your Friends?!"

"I remember everything... and it changes NOTHING!"

Dust: an Elysian Tail, said by General Gaius. That part of the trailer and the following quote I added always gave me chills~

Nile McMorrow:
New Line One: "This is Rupture Farms. They say it's the biggest meat processing plant on Oddworld. I used to work here."

New Line Two: "AHAHAHAHAHAHAHA HA."

1 is Abe's Oddysey
2 is Final Fantasy X

Here is one: "And __ cast himself from the highest mountain in all of Greece. After ten years of suffering, ten years of endless nightmares, it would finally come to an end. Death would be his escape from madness..."

hermes:

Nile McMorrow:
New Line One: "This is Rupture Farms. They say it's the biggest meat processing plant on Oddworld. I used to work here."

New Line Two: "AHAHAHAHAHAHAHA HA."

1 is Abe's Oddysey
2 is Final Fantasy X

Here is one: "And __ cast himself from the highest mountain in all of Greece. After ten years of suffering, ten years of endless nightmares, it would finally come to an end. Death would be his escape from madness..."

^God of War! Narrated by Gaia. Yay I finally recognized a non-obvious one! "Greece" kinda still gave it away though.

New one: The enemy may shatter our bodies, but they cannot break our spirit. Even now they advance on our home world, to seize by force what they cannot claim by right. They cannot imagine what awaits them..."

Nile McMorrow:

New Line One: "This is Rupture Farms. They say it's the biggest meat processing plant on Oddworld. I used to work here."

New Line Two: "AHAHAHAHAHAHAHA HA."

Ooh. Abe's Oddysee. Classic. The second line could be a number of things, but I'm gonna take a shot in the dark and guess Specter from ape escape.

Here's a couple new quotes:

1. "I've got bigger fish to fry."
"Bigger than the galaxy?"
"Well, different fish anyway."

2. "Gee, I really care about your lame people and your crummy temple, but we're gonna have to pass."

"It shone pale as bone, As I stood there alone, And I thought to myself how the moon, That night cast its light, On my heart's true delight, And the reef where her body was strewn."

Hawki:

Xsjadoblayde:
"It's a me!... Mario!"

Gee, I dunno, Luigi?

Xsjadoblayde:

"HiyYIAHH!"

Link from 3D Zelda games, as early as Ocarina of Time.

Xsjadoblayde:

"Do you really think you'll survive in here? You don't seem to know which creek you're in. Sweetcorn is the only thing that makes it through my rear.
How do you think I keep this lovely grin?"

The Great Mighty Poo from Conker's Bad Fur Day.

Luigi isn't a game, silly! No treat for you. ;)

But the rest are correct. Have a smoked salmon biscuit thing...

Am disappointed nobody recognised the Bloodborne quote though. Oh wells.

One more;
"Is there anything that we associate more closely with intelligence than curiosity? Every intelligent species on Earth is attracted by the unknown. Our mythologies are full of riddles and mysteries and divine knowledge. Even the word apocalypse... Even the word apocalypse means revelation. It seems like our ancestors always imagined that even at the very end we would solve one last mystery."

I know none of these (bar the really obvious ones).

1) "You feel an evil presence watching you..."

2) "Ah... You're here. Good. We've got a problem. A big one."

3) "Then do what needs to be done. Bolster our defenses. Prepare for the attack on Pearl Harbor."

1) "After all you have sought, after all you have sacrificed, it all ends in another stunning failure!"

2) "Science isn't about why, it's about why not. You ask: why is so much of our science dangerous? I say: why not marry safe science if you love it so much? In fact, why not invent a special safety door that won't hit you in the butt on the way out, because you are fired! No, not you, test subject, you're fine. Yes, you! Box! Your stuff! Out the front door! Parking lot! Car! Goodbye!"

3) "The Grail is a concept, a general understanding of Good. The search for the Grail is nothing beyond an ordinary quest for perfection. The Grail has no specific form or shape. It differs for each individual: it can be an object, an idea, a discovery. It can also be a search for the truth about oneself. This theory claims the quest for the Grail to be the goal in itself. The result is of secondary importance."

4) "Sometimes things work out best when you don't try as hard. No matter who you are, bearing too much weight will lead to the eventual collapse of everything."

I've got one.
"Why do you keep touching me?"

DoctorObviously:

2) "Science isn't about why, it's about why not. You ask: why is so much of our science dangerous? I say: why not marry safe science if you love it so much? In fact, why not invent a special safety door that won't hit you in the butt on the way out, because you are fired! No, not you, test subject, you're fine. Yes, you! Box! Your stuff! Out the front door! Parking lot! Car! Goodbye!"

Good ol Cave Johnson from Portal 2

trunkage:

"NOTHING MORE BADASS THAN TREATING A WOMAN WITH RESPECT"

That is Mr. Torgue Flexington in Borderlands 2. One of the best characters imo

Line: "Half as long, Twice as Bright"

No idea if that is too vague but its from one of my favorite games

1) "If this is a taste of the afterlife, I think simple oblivion will do nicely".

2) "Madmen toil surreptitiously in rituals to summon the moon".

3) "Over the bones of the bird of prey, the fires are put out, and the diabolic gathering is closed off once again".

4) "Stay fresh!"

1. "Out of all the women ive known, youre the only one that does that before."

2. "No one will ever find it. In the drawer between the top and bottom."

Canadamus Prime:
I've got one.
"Why do you keep touching me?"

Silvanus:
1) "If this is a taste of the afterlife, I think simple oblivion will do nicely".

2) "Madmen toil surreptitiously in rituals to summon the moon".

3) "Over the bones of the bird of prey, the fires are put out, and the diabolic gathering is closed off once again".

4) "Stay fresh!"

1) Crysis
3) Guild wars 2

Here's my 2.

1) "Congratulations Professor. With Hitler removed."

Kajin:
"I shall wait for you in death's halls, my love."

Planescape: Torment, Deionara, when you encounter her as you leave the Mortuary.

Let's see if these aren't too obscure:

Line 1:

And there's the greatest triumph of all, to have compelled the one player who could choose into doing exactly what we required. Well done, faithful servant.

Line 2:

Builds your roofs of dead wood. Builds your walls of dead stone. Builds your dreams of dead thoughts. Comes crying laughing singing back to life, takes what you steal, and pulls the skins from your dead bones shrieking.

Hawki:

Canadamus Prime:

Hawki:

Orc grunt from Warcraft III?

You're close, but no.

Um...orc grunt from Warcraft II?

Nope Warcraft I, the Human Footman. You had the right franchise though.

Ah yes, we've been expecting you. You have to be recorded before you're officially released. There's a few ways we can do this and the choice...is...yours...

Oomph, ugh...where is it?

Im no match for you... I admit defeat...

Elvis Starburst:
Ooh, ooh, I got one!

"Your right hand comes off?"

*You're(sic). Resident Evil 4.

"Great. We all just got cancer."

Saelune:
Ah yes, we've been expecting you. You have to be recorded before you're officially released. There's a few ways we can do this and the choice...is...yours...

I think that's Morrowind, but I'm not sure.

My line: "It's a secret to everybody."

Here's a few lesser known lines from well known franchises:

Line 1:
"You die here!"
*scoffs* "We both know that isn't true."

Line 2:
"I am not the villain in this story."

Line 3:
"I'm not trying to prove anything."

I will drop four easy ones and four hard ones yet again;

the easy ones

Line 1: "I coveted that win, I suppose"
Line 2: "The numbers, _____! What do they mean?"
Line 3: "It means I am the most powerful ____ in the world!"
Line 4: "Stop right there, criminal scum!"

The hard ones

Line 1: "Even in dark times, we cannot relinquish the things that make us human."
Line 2: "It's easy to forget what a sin is in the middle of a battlefield."
Line 3: "The world fears the inevitable plummet into the abyss."
Line 4: "No matter how dark the night, morning always comes, and our journey begins anew."

DoctorObviously:

2) "Science isn't about why, it's about why not. You ask: why is so much of our science dangerous? I say: why not marry safe science if you love it so much? In fact, why not invent a special safety door that won't hit you in the butt on the way out, because you are fired! No, not you, test subject, you're fine. Yes, you! Box! Your stuff! Out the front door! Parking lot! Car! Goodbye!"

Cave Johnson in Portal 2

Yeah c'mon, I've read Dracula, I know how this works."

Dreadman75:
"
Line 2:
"I am not the villain in this story."

Doctor Samuel Hayden from DOOM (2016)?

Here's some for y'all

1:
"Remind me again why I even try to enlighten your mind?"
"You must be pathologically stubborn"

2:
"Shit, this is a fortress."

3:
"Whoa! Password to the club?"
"Yeah, 'Don't shoot my ass'."
"Don't shoot my ass."
"Entres vous"

4:
"People are messy, awkward, sometimes selfish and cruel. But they're trying, and I'm going to make sure they have a chance."

5:
"OH NO, THE ZOMBIES KILLED GOD!"

6:
"You know what time it is."

7:
"Mr. ___, you've been convicted of over three hundred murders, do you really expect this appeal to work?"
"I figure with the statute of limitations it really should be closer to two fifty."
"There's no statute of limitations for murder!"
"Why the fuck not?"
"Watch yourself Mr. ___."
"Or what, you'll hold me in contempt of court? You're already planning on giving me the chair, you think I give a shit about you not liking me? Fuck off..."
"I'm curious if you can keep your cavalier attitude when 2000 volts are running through your body."
"Oh yeah? And I'm curious if you can keep acting like a douche bag when I shove that gavel up your ass."

sgy0003:

The hard ones

Line 2: "It's easy to forget what a sin is in the middle of a battlefield."

Solid Snake, Metal Gear Solid.

...seriously, how is this one of the "hard" ones? Couldn't get any of the "easy" ones. :(
