Famous Video Game One Liners

Recommended Posts

So people, what are some of the most famous video game one liners you can think of?
The first one that pops into my head is the one in Map02 of Hexen (Seven Portals) where Korax pops up, and says (and I quote):

"Greetings, mortal. Are you ready to die?"

My favourite is also Korax's "Greetings Mortal...", mostly for the way it's said. Otherwise, Caleb says some good stuff in Blood, both in-game and in the cut screens. For some reason, the one that sticks in my mind most is "You're going to need a bigger boat".

Just this one, hehe
"Just when you thought it was safe to make a cup of coffee" - the space invaders game you got to play when some old Activision game (Aliens or something) was loading... on tape (C64 ;)

-- Edited

cup of tea actually, sorry ;-)

the game was named INVADE-A-LOAD

I doubt many of these are famous but I like them / have heard them too many times:

"Is that the best you can do?" from Serious Sam

"It's me, Mario" from super mario 64

"I'm murray, the demonic über skull" from Monkey island 3

"Creetings Turok, how may I assist you" from Turok 2

"Will you go up the ladder?" from resident evil

"There is a green herb, will you take the green herb?"
(these stupid questions from RE can be REALLY annoying)

"By the time I noticed something was wrong, the entire city was infested by zombies." from RE
(WHY cannot you skip the animations, I can remember all of the dialogs from half of the game)

"just leave, next time you come I'll be waiting with a bat." I was about to die in laughter when my brother told me that the bat is THE animal bat.

"i've been expecting you" from maybe hundreds of games (the final boss)

"whatever" from final fantasy VIII

and plenty of others i can't remember just now

"Are you strong enough to face your own masters?"
"My servants can smell your blood, human."
"You have played this game too long, mortal. I think I shall remove you from the board."
"Worship me, and I may yet be merciful. Then again, maybe not."

All these are from HeXen and everything one of those taunts from Korax have stuck in my memory since I played the full version.

There are a lot of famous one-liners where we didn't exactly hear the character speaking. Instead, it was written in a text. For instance, some of the things Minsc (Baldur's Gate 1, 2, and Throne of Baal) said were quite funny, since he tends to talk to his hamster a lot. I haven't played the game in a long time, so I can't remember any right now.

Are you afraid? What is it that you fear? The end of your trivial existence?
-SHODON System Shock II

Foolish man! He prayed for death, and it found him!
-Liquid snake, Metal gear solid

And this is not technically a “one liner” but:

Constantine: …Hidden by the scum hammerights- Oh sorry, you are perhaps, friendly with the order of the hammer?

Garret: No. Fanatics make unreliable friends.

Thief: The dark project. (because it’s so true)

Class, all the why.
