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

 Pages PREV 1 2 3 4 5 6 NEXT
 

Line 1: "Great is the weapon that cuts on its own."
Line 2: "All I remember is what I have lost."
Line 3: "What does a brother have to do to pacify a bitch?"
Line 4: "No taxes is good taxes, that's my motto"

Hey, I finally know some!

The Raw Shark:

6:
"You know what time it is."

McCree from Overwatch.

Saelune:

Oomph, ugh...where is it?

Duke Nukem trying to find that light switch in Duke Nukem 3D.

sgy0003:

the easy ones

Line 3: "It means I am the most powerful ____ in the world!"
Line 4: "Stop right there, criminal scum!"

Line 4 is from Oblivion, isn't it? Line 3 sounds like it's your rival from Pokemon Red/Blue just before the final battle. The wording is a little off, however.

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

Elvis Starburst:

Mario for the first from... pretty much every game since he says that all the time.

Hawki:

Gee, I dunno, Luigi?

You're all wrong, obviously the answer is Assassin's Creed 2

dscross:

That's one of the house of dead games. 1, 2 or 3? I get mixed up between the HOTD games. 2 had the cheesy lines so I'll say 2? I mainly remember "seems like my advice had no effect. Suffer like gee did" from that game.

My favorite line is "G's bloodstains!" a mile away from where they last saw G.

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

The Legend of Zelda.


Here's mine:

1: "Do you know of a place where sailors hang out?"

2: "Do you want your possessions identified?"

3: "Wicked rat, you stole my wallet. Admit it! Alright you little snot, you dragged my wallet under there you can just go bring it back! Blob? Blob, come out of there!"

4: "The world ends with you. If you want to enjoy life, expand your world. You gotta push your horizons out as far as they'll go."

Drathnoxis:


Here's mine:

1: "Do you know of a place where sailors hang out?"

2: "Do you want your possessions identified?"

4: "The world ends with you. If you want to enjoy life, expand your world. You gotta push your horizons out as far as they'll go."

1: Shenmue

2: Nethack, every time you die.

4: The World Ends With You (aka It's a Wonderful World)

Really easy one;
"You exist, because we allow it, and you will end, because we demand it."

Much harder one;
"We're screwed! Pants! Pants! Some Pants! Pants! Pants!"

"Here! Left! EUGH HUEGH! EUGH HUEGH! Right! EUGH HUEGH! Right, right! EUGH HUEGH! EUGH HUEGH! We're putting it down!"

Drathnoxis:
"Here! Left! EUGH HUEGH! EUGH HUEGH! Right! EUGH HUEGH! Right, right! EUGH HUEGH! EUGH HUEGH! We're putting it down!"

This might be the first one I think I may recognise...but Shenmue 2?

Oh, and hey!

Drathnoxis:

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

You're all wrong, obviously the answer is Assassin's Creed 2

...I never answered, just quoted! :O

Hawk of Battle:
"You exist, because we allow it, and you will end, because we demand it."

Sovereign, Mass Effect 1, Virmire.

Talk about going easy on us...

bartholen:
Line 1: "Great is the weapon that cuts on its own."

Darkest Dungeon.

And for some of my own.

"My pulse is beating like a drum, but my blood runs cold."

"I object! That was...objectionable!"

"It took hundreds to kill me, but I killed humans by the thousands!"

Xsjadoblayde:

Drathnoxis:
"Here! Left! EUGH HUEGH! EUGH HUEGH! Right! EUGH HUEGH! Right, right! EUGH HUEGH! EUGH HUEGH! We're putting it down!"

This might be the first one I think I may recognise...but Shenmue 2?

Yeah!

Xsjadoblayde:
Oh, and hey!

Drathnoxis:

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

You're all wrong, obviously the answer is Assassin's Creed 2

...I never answered, just quoted! :O

Oh, I quoted you to give reference. Probably should have formatted it differently.

erttheking:

"I object! That was...objectionable!"

I object at such an obvious quote!

Raistlarn:

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

Right series, wrong game, on both counts.

Drathnoxis:

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

The Legend of Zelda.

Correct.

"Like I always tell them, you can be as crazy as you want, but once you try to kill me, I'm gonna stop calling."

"Shadow and light are two sides of the same coin. One cannot exist without the other."

"Look at you, sailing majestically through the air like an eagle... Piloting a blimp."

Here's a line:

"Fye you're itching for the kindling touch of your sister, ye coxfither."

Here are mine:

1. "Run you pidgeons, it's Robert Frost!"
2. "See you around, officer."
3. "There are no choices. Nothing but a straight line. The illusion comes afterwards, when you ask "why me?" and "what if?". When you look back and see the branches, like a pruned bonsai tree, or forked lightning."

Okay, here's some easy ones:

Line 1: "We may die if we make a stand here, but staying gives us the chance to change our destinies. We have the Monado. With this, the future is ours for the taking!"

Line 2: "My name's Wild Fang. And it's a pleasure to meet you!"

Arnoxthe1:

"Shadow and light are two sides of the same coin. One cannot exist without the other."

God damn it I know this one from somewhere...

World of Warcraft?

Kingdom Hearts?

Hawki:

Kingdom Hearts?

Nope.

vasudean:
Here's a line:

"Fye you're itching for the kindling touch of your sister, ye coxfither."

Planescape: Torment?

Kajin:

"Death is not a hunter unbeknownst to its prey.
One is always aware that it lies in wait.
Though life is merely a journey to the grave,
it must not be undertaken without hope.
Only then will a traveler's story live on,
cherished by those who bid him farewell.
But alas, now my guest's life has ended, his tale left unwritten..."

That sounds like a game over message from Igor, from the Persona franchise. As a guess, its from Persona 3, from The Journey story.

Elvis Starburst:

"Well said.
I will make those words your last, replica!"

Tales of the Abyss? At least, I think so. Sounds like something Asch said.

Lemme give this a go...

"I'm telling you for the last goddamn time, lower the goddamn bridge, you greasy vest-wearing monkey!"

Sinister Minister:

Well done o3o

As for a quote from me:

"To each of us falls a task. And all the Emperor requires of us Guardsmen is that we stand the line and we die fighting. It is what we do best. We die standing."

Arnoxthe1:
"Look at you, sailing majestically through the air like an eagle... Piloting a blimp."

Portal 2! Specifically, GLaDOS says this in chapter 3, test chamber 09 after GLaDOS has fixed the Aerial Faith Plate.
One of my favorite quotes.

Line 1: Remarkable! You are like Icarus, if he never flew too close to the sun. Or flew at all. And nobody remembered him. Or cared. That's you. ... You don't even know what I'm talking about, do you?

Line 2: And he cried in a loud voice, 'Lazarus, come forth!' And Lazarus did arise from the grave.

Line 3: We have survived for the past thousand years by hiding, oh yes. Today, that changes. Strategy, my boy, strategy must be employed. You are now the tip of our spear.

Hawki:

Dreadman75:

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

Darksiders 2?

Dreadman75:

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

Borderlands 2?

First guess: Correct! Well done! I loved the interaction between Death and Belial. It was hilarious
Second guess: Not correct unfortunately.

The Raw Shark:

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

Doctor Samuel Hayden from DOOM (2016)?

Correct, my friend! Well done! Any guesses for quotes 3 and 4?

McElroy:
Hey, I finally know some!

The Raw Shark:

6:

McCree from Overwatch.

Right you are my god sir.

Dreadman75:

Doctor Samuel Hayden from DOOM (2016)?

Correct, my friend! Well done! Any guesses for quotes 3 and 4?

I feel like I've hard more games than I can count say those specific words so I'm going to withhold judgement till further explanation is provided.

Dr. Thrax:

Line 2: And he cried in a loud voice, 'Lazarus, come forth!' And Lazarus did arise from the grave.

Kane, Command & Conquer 3: Tiberium Wars

MrCalavera:
Here are mine:

1. "Run you pidgeons, it's Robert Frost!"

Grim Fandango.

Is it sad I remember so many lines from lucasarts games?

I am sad lucasarts no longer makes adventure games anymore. I'm also sad they don't exist anymore, but I considered them dead long before they were shuttered.

Hawki:
Okay, here's some easy ones:

Line 1: "We may die if we make a stand here, but staying gives us the chance to change our destinies. We have the Monado. With this, the future is ours for the taking!"

No one guessed this? It's easy because it's the opening cut scene into tutorial, but no one played this game on two systems; the Wii and New 3DS.
Xenoblade Chronicles! Never finished the first one but still I can't wait for the new one on Switch!

Here's another game that too few people played, yet it was strangely prescient:
"I'll make America great again!!!"

Ravenbom:

Steven Armstrong from Metal Gear Rising?

MrCalavera:

"See you around, officer."
"There are no choices. Nothing but a straight line. The illusion comes afterwards, when you ask "why me?" and "what if?". When you look back and see the branches, like a pruned bonsai tree, or forked lightning."

GTA: San Andreas
Max Payne...ummmm....2?

New line: "Hello. Could you help me treat my injured dinofly?"

New line 2:"Look, prophecies aren't in my job description, OK? I'm just a humble P.I. trying to save the world as we know it."

New line 3: "Welcome to the age of the great guilds!"

Ugh, I only figured out a few quotes that were either obvious, or someone else already handled them well before this post. Either way, here's one classic:

"I wanted ORANGE! it gave me LEMON-LIME!"

I also remember there was a pretty cool extended joke about a tuna and a chef playing chess in one of my favourite classics, but sadly I can't quote it word for word :(

vasudean:
Here's a line:

"Fye you're itching for the kindling touch of your sister, ye coxfither."

I just started playing Pillars Of Eternity this morning.

Dalisclock:

Correct.

Also correct.

Ugicywapih:

"I wanted ORANGE! it gave me LEMON-LIME!"

Deus Ex of course.
