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

 Pages 1 2 3 4 5 6 NEXT
 

I thought it might be fun to have a guessing game thread if anyone wants to play... Please add new ones for people to guess.

Aim:
Guess which game the quoted line is from.

Rules:
Only one or two sentences (or a few very short ones) allowed when writing a line of dialogue.
If you guess one, you have to add a new line of dialogue for people to guess in your post.
Any cutscenes or in game dialogue allowed, but no ridiculously obscure lines no-one will be able to get. Also, no lines that could literally be from any game like "roger that" or something.
No Googling (we can't really police this, but you'll just be cheating yourself).

Starter 1
"Did you think those ancient phrases were mere words man fool? LOOK AT ME."

Starter 2:
"You're the ugliest monster ever created! If you don't count all the ones you've dated."

Starter 3:
"Sorry, but it looks like your party has been cancelled. Urrrrrrrghhhhh."

Starter 4:
"Talk about low budget flights - no food or movies? I'm outta here... I like running better."

Starter 4

That's all I got.

Starter 3: Resident Evil 2 (Marvin talking to Leon)

Starter 4: Sonic Adventure 2 (when Sonic escapes the GUN copter)

So, if I guess two, I'll add two:

-Line 1: "I saw my death in my dreams many times. A nightmare that I'll never forget."

-Line 2: "I thought he would be. But you're too fragile. You're all...so fragile."

Hawki:

So, if I guess two, I'll add two:

-Line 1: "I saw my death in my dreams many times. A nightmare that I'll never forget."

-Line 2: "I thought he would be. But you're too fragile. You're all...so fragile."

2 is... Tiberian Twilight?

-Line 1 "There is a shadow of a nation behind you, the hope of a people."

-Line 2 "The truth is you're here because you wanted to feel like something you're not. A Hero."

Kreett:

2 is... Tiberian Twilight?

Correct. Have a brownie. Tiberium included.

Ooh, ooh, I got one!

"Your right hand comes off?"

"You're more of a meal than a man."

"Police don't have any suspects at this time but they're pretty sure it was you."

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

"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..."

Kreett:
"The truth is you're here because you wanted to feel like something you're not. A Hero."

Spec Ops: The Line
-
"Just one question. What if you miss?"
"I won't."

dscross:
Starter 1
"Did you think those ancient phrases were mere words man fool? LOOK AT ME."

That's got to be the first Thief.

"What is a drop of rain, compared to a storm? What is a thought, compared to a mind?"

Elvis Starburst:
Ooh, ooh, I got one!

"Your right hand comes off?"

Resident Evil 4.

Arnoxthe1:

"Just one question. What if you miss?"
"I won't."

Halo 2.

The Rogue Wolf:

"What is a drop of rain, compared to a storm? What is a thought, compared to a mind?"

Guessing, but Prince of Persia 2008?

And since I guessed two, here's two more:

Line 1: "Even in the heart of Heaven...angels...can still feel fear."

Line 2: "In time, one man will seek to rule over all. It is human nature, inescapable. And it will come sooner than any of you think."

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

"What is friendship, but a chance encounter?"

"HiyYIAHH!"

"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?"

Rather challenging ones if I must say so myself! Teehee!

Hawki:

Elvis Starburst:
Ooh, ooh, I got one!

"Your right hand comes off?"

Resident Evil 4.

Too easy?

Xsjadoblayde:
Snip

Mario for the first from... pretty much every game since he says that all the time. And Conker's Bad Furday, said by The Great Mighty Poo.

Let's try another. Ahem...

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

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.

And two more:

Line 1: "Keep your head down! There's two of us in here now remember?!"

Line 2: "But you were dead a thousand times. Hopeless encounters successfully won. A man long dead, grafted to machines your builders did not understand. You follow the path, fitting into an infinite pattern. Yours to manipulate, to destroy and rebuild. Now, in the quantum moment before the closure, when all becomes one. One moment left. One point of space and time. I know who you are. You are destiny."

Here's a hard one. I think perhaps only three people on here though will know what this is from. Although the game itself is definitely not obscure at all.

"What is the measure of a man, or of his murder? By what insane calculus can we answer questions like these? Should we even try?"

And another from a different game.

"My mommy can run faster than that. :)"

Although it's from a famous mod of it.

Hawki:
"Keep your head down! There's two of us in here now remember?!"

Halo: CE

Xsjadoblayde:
"HiyYIAHH!"

Hawki:
And two more:

Line 1: "Keep your head down! There's two of us in here now remember?!"

A Halo. Is this thread turning into a Halo quote thread?

Edit: here one: "The right man in the wrong place can make all the difference in the world"

Also: "if our lives are already written, it would take a brave man to change the script"

"The ending isn't any more important than any moments leading to it"

"Hard to see big picture behind a pile of corpses."

"NOTHING MORE BADASS THAN TREATING A WOMAN WITH RESPECT"

trunkage:

"NOTHING MORE BADASS THAN TREATING A WOMAN WITH RESPECT"

I'm 99% sure thats in one of the Borderlands Games. I'm gonna say 2?

My lines are:

"I'll pull your skeleton out by your ass!"

"Down you go!"

"Yeah? Well this thorn... is about to take you down! Man, that sounded a whole lot better in my head."

trunkage:

Hawki:

Half-life 2! It's not our fault that Halo is such an immensely quotable game.

How about this one: "Trouble with the trolley, eh?"

trunkage:
"Hard to see big picture behind a pile of corpses."

That one's Mass Effect 2 I think?

New line: "Whenever I smell asphalt, I think of Maureen. That's the last sensation I had before I blacked out: the thick smell of asphalt. And the first thing I saw when I woke up was her face."

The Rogue Wolf:

"What is a drop of rain, compared to a storm? What is a thought, compared to a mind?"

Well done. I love that scene where he loses his eye. Is yours System Shock 2? Man I haven't played that in a long time.

New line: "Eversmile. Set in the realm of joy, the people of Eversmile are plagued only by aching facial muscles, and not anthrax as we had hoped. Eversmile is a disgusting land of good humour and polite frivolity."

dscross:

New line: "Whenever I smell asphalt, I think of Maureen. That's the last sensation I had before I blacked out: the thick smell of asphalt. And the first thing I saw when I woke up was her face."

Full Throttle.

dscross:

Starter 2:
"You're the ugliest monster ever created! If you don't count all the ones you've dated."

I'm 90% sure that's Curse of Monkey Island.

Here's one(I might be paraphrasing a little):

"Terrorists? You surprise me. I would at least thought you'd keep up the pretense of sympathy for the group that is paying you"
"I didn't say I wasn't sympathetic. I said they were terrorists".

Dalisclock:
I'm 90% sure that's Curse of Monkey Island.

Correct. I wondered if anyone would remember the insult sword fighting lines.

necromanzer52:
"Trouble with the trolley, eh?"

Haha - Is that the Seagull you have to talk to when you crash the cart in Spiro The Dragon 2?

New line 1: "It's time to kick ass and chew bubblegum... and I'm all outta gum."

New Line 2: "GET OVER HERE!"

New line 1 "It's time to kick ass and chew bubblegum... and I'm all outta gum."[/quote]

Duke Nukem

dscross:

New Line 2 "Get Over Here!"

Scorpion. Pretty much any game he's in.

##

New Line 1: "I've been waiting for this time to come. You people have no future. Either I get you, or the emperor will. Either way, your fate is in our hands."

New Line 2: "Yeah I'm a little short to be a trooper, but just...just a little."

dscross:

New line: "It's time to kick ass and chew bubblegum... and I'm all outta gum."

Duke Nukem.

New Line: "What family finishes building their own cemetery before the house?"

And another: "CONGRATULATIONS! YOU ARE THE 1032ND PLAYER TO INSPECT THIS GARBAGE!"

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

Hawki:
"I saw my death in my dreams many times. A nightmare that I'll never forget."

Pretty sure that's Ace Combat: Assault Horizon.

Hawki:

New Line 1: "I've been waiting for this time to come. You people have no future. Either I get you, or the emperor will. Either way, your fate is in our hands.."

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.

maninahat:

New Line: "What family finishes building their own cemetery before the house!"

This is What Remains Of Edith Finch i think. I completed this recently.

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."

Hawki:

Line 1: "Even in the heart of Heaven...angels...can still feel fear."

Diablo 3

1 "It's a giant worm, they're sinking cities with a giant worm!"

2 "It's not the end of the world, but you can see it from here."

Kreett:

1 "It's a giant worm, they're sinking cities with a giant worm!"

Gears of War 2?

New Line: "You exists because we allow it; you will end because we demand it."

Kreett:

Diablo 3

1 "It's a giant worm, they're sinking cities with a giant worm!"

2 "It's not the end of the world, but you can see it from here."

1: I think that's Gears of War? But I never played it so I could be wrong.
2: Deus Ex Human Revolution.

Try these, first one's rather obscure second isn't.
1: 'Your future hinges upon this fight!'
2: 'Please can't you spare something? I'm poor and sick and hungry!'

Mr Companion:

2: 'Please can't you spare something? I'm poor and sick and hungry!'

Oh god, those annoying beggars in Assassin's Creed.

Hmm lemme think of one...
"Hi-Fi? As in, High in Fiber?

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

Is this Crimson Skies?

Here are some easy ones to make everyone's lives easier

Line 1: "Did I ever tell you about the definition of insanity?"
Line 2: "We must construct additional pylons!"
Line 3: "I used to be an adventurer like you....Then I took an arrow to the knee"
Line 4: "Thanks ____, but our princess is in another castle!"

Now, here are some more obscure ones

Line 1: "Don't you remember your duty? Don't you remember your Friends?!"
Line 2: "No matter what, you keep finding something to fight for"
Line 3: "Hmph, you humans...always taking what you please. Then, I shall do the same"
Line 4: "Only a jackass can change the world"

Easy
Far Cry 3
Starcraft
Skyrim
Super Mario
Obscure
Line 2 is from The Last of Us and Line 3 is from Dark Souls. I think that's Ciaran?
