Another:

1. "He took out his hip flask when he reached the page that described how he reached the page that made him take out his hip flask.

It wasn't the booze that made his mind reel."

2. "I need to use the bathroom."

3. "Cornered by bikerz. Eugh. Eugh. Eugh. 2 -the number not the word- young 2 die. xx oo"

Drathnoxis:

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!"

Disappointed nobody has gotten this one. No Spoony fans left?

Here's a new one:

"Children are pure, they know who's the strongest!"

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

Darkest dungeon?

Line 4: "No taxes is good taxes, that's my motto"

Crusader stronghold? Only vaguely remember from some meme or something I saw ages ago
No idea of the 3rd one, but I'm curious as to what it is because I'm sure I've heard it somewhere, like a GTA or Saints Row game.

And my contributions (1st one because it's my fav game quote anyway)
1) "Some trees flourish, others die. Some cattle grow strong, others are taken by wolves. Some men are born rich enough and dumb enough to enjoy their lives. Ain't nothing fair. You know that."

2) "Damn it! You guys totally wrecked my shop and I haven't even named it yet!"

Arnoxthe1:
"Shadow and light are two sides of the same coin. One cannot exist without the other."

That sounds so familiar. Is that Twilight Princess?

dscross:

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!"

2: I'm pretty sure it's Under a Killing Moon. It's one of the Tex Murphy games for sure.

3: Loom?

Canadamus Prime:

Yep. Zelda says it at the end cutscene.

Twilight Princess Zelda is best Zelda.

MrCalavera:
3. "Cornered by bikerz. Eugh. Eugh. Eugh. 2 -the number not the word- young 2 die. xx oo"

Can I cheat and say one of the early 3D GTA games? I don' know which one. Before 4. I do remember the line but I can't place which one, other than I think it was one of the spin offs.

3: Loom?

Both Correct. You are very good at old school point and click dialogue. The only one you didn't get that I've said was the Blade Runner game. Can you get these more difficult ones too?

"He must'a jumped. Fell all the way to ground level."

"Cast adrift...floating...a song...a song upon the wind...wind that rushes through leaves...calling me onward...into a heart of green..."

"The weed of crime bears bitter fruit." "But it makes a pretty good milkshake."

"Which of you five, would like to play my little game?"

And an easy one:

"Paris in the Fall. The last months of the year, and the end of the millennium. The city holds many memories for me: of cafes, of music, of love... and of death."

dscross:
"Which of you five, would like to play my little game?"

I Have No Mouth, and I Must Scream

New line: "Good luck, Mr. Bush! I think you'll need it in this neighborhood..."

New line: "Now the Broadcast is my soul. The Broadcast is my body. The Broadcast is my moustache."

I will be very surprised if anyone gets this one.

dscross:
"The weed of crime bears bitter fruit." "But it makes a pretty good milkshake."

I'm guessing that it's from a Sam & Max game? One of the more recent ones?

Okay, here's my three quotes to guess:

"Go legally brain-dead from lack of oxygen due to choking on my whole ass!!"

"The flow of time is always cruel; its speed seems different for each person, but no one can change it. A thing that does not change with time is a memory of younger days."

"I think I broke my skull! I'm all skull!"

"Oh Great. I'm stuck in Colonial Times, Tentacles are taking over the world, and now the toilet's backing up."

Howllons-y:

dscross:

Close enough - it's not from a newer one though.

Canadamus Prime:
"Oh Great. I'm stuck in Colonial Times, Tentacles are taking over the world, and now the toilet's backing up."

Ah that's easy peasy. Day of The Tentacle.

Howllons-y:

"I think I broke my skull! I'm all skull!"

Curse of Monkey Island. (Murray The Invincible Demonic Skull) "Is it a really evil looking doorstop?" lol

New line: "A mage is like a wizard only not as cool."

dscross:

Canadamus Prime:
"Oh Great. I'm stuck in Colonial Times, Tentacles are taking over the world, and now the toilet's backing up."

Ah that's easy peasy. Day of The Tentacle.

Yeah, I didn't think that'd be a hard one.

Howllons-y:

"The flow of time is always cruel; its speed seems different for each person, but no one can change it. A thing that does not change with time is a memory of younger days."

Ocarina of Time? Something Sheik says? I want to say before she teaches you the Minuet of Forest. That's my guess anyway.

"For the Technology of Peace"

"This twisted game needs to be reset"

dscross:

"Paris in the Fall. The last months of the year, and the end of the millennium. The city holds many memories for me: of cafes, of music, of love... and of death."

Broken Sword 1: Shadow of the Templars.

Not sure how easy this one is.

"Yes, Thank you. Goodbye.....Mr. President".

Hopefully someone gets this one.

"You're being charged on over 300 counts of Murder. Do you really expect this appeal to work?"
"I figure with the statue of limitations it's probably closer to 250"
"There's no statue of limitations for murder!"

Howllons-y:

"The flow of time is always cruel; its speed seems different for each person, but no one can change it. A thing that does not change with time is a memory of younger days."

Sheik, Ocarina of Time.

Dalisclock:

"Yes, Thank you. Goodbye.....Mr. President".

Revolver Ocelot, Metal Gear Solid.

JohnnyDelRay:

You're correct on Stronghold Crusader. The 3rd one is from House of the Dead: Overkill.

bartholen:

Now that you mention it, how could it be anything else *but* HotD. I actually played 2 versions of that game too, the motion controller PS3 version, and the Typing of the Dead version on PC. Somehow I did a lot better at the typing...the dialogue and cutscenes in that game is so damn over the top though, not something you'd want your parents to walk in on you playing haha

MrCalavera:
Another:

1. "He took out his hip flask when he reached the page that described how he reached the page that made him take out his hip flask.

It wasn't the booze that made his mind reel."

That'd be Alan Wake, one of my favorite lines from it, too.

I suppose I'll submit this.

Character 1: "That's racist."

Character 2: "YOU'RE racist!"

Hawki:

Dalisclock:

"Yes, Thank you. Goodbye.....Mr. President".

Revolver Ocelot, Metal Gear Solid.

Correct

Assassins Creed Brotherhood.

Going off of memory here.

1. Don't kill and don't be killed, alright?
2. Hold on, that doesn't seem right. OMG, A BOMB!
3. I do not give a wooden nickle about your legacy, you call them off!
4. Your failure is inevitable!
5. They were a waste of skins, scales, whatever.

Saulkar:

MrCalavera:

Nope, the game is 15 years older and based upon a property that is 40 years older than it.

Whether or not you win the game... mattes not. It's if you bought it.

Teh_Moose:

Vampire: The Masquerade.

HEY DUDES, THANKS FOR RESCUING ME.
LET'S GO FOR A BURGER....
HA! HA! HA! HA!

Catch me later, I'll buy you a beer.

Yikes! Don't sneak up on me like that.

Here's a lockpick. It might be handy if you, the master of unlocking, take it with you.

Take off every ZIG ! !

All of my past was just fragmented still shots. Words hanging in the air like balloons.

They don't make animations like THAT anymore.

She grew up in the colonies. She knows how tough life can be out there.

Hinky? You act as if you've never seen a German U-boat in the middle of the jungle before.

Felstaff:

Bad Dudes

Felstaff:

Mass Effect?

Dalisclock:

Felstaff:

Yikes! Don't sneak up on me like that.

Half Life again?

It's the first line of the first character the protagonist meets (and is said by the protagonist numerous times, I believe). I'll give another line, from a different game in the franchise

I'll be back!
I'LL be back!
I'll BE back!
I'll be BACK!

Edit: correct for everything else so far.

Felstaff:
I'll be back!
I'LL be back!
I'll BE back!
I'll be BACK!

Monkey Island 2!!! The original Yikes line is from MI1...

New line: "The old man was trying to tell the future, looking for pictures in the campfire" "Ooooh I seeeee evil!"

dscross:
"The old man was trying to tell the future, looking for pictures in the campfire" "Ooooh I seeeee evil!"

Heh, this quote from mine:

Felstaff:
They don't make animations like THAT anymore.

was directly referencing this game. A few lines before it says "Nobody tells ROBERT FOSTER what to do, lady!"

That one was too subtle for me. We'll see if anyone else gets it from these then. (I also put something from the same game earlier up but noone got it either. It was "He must'a jumped. Fell all the way to ground level". Thought I needed an easier one.)

No, not just an urge, more than that. It was my destiny to be here, in the box.
