What are the best quotes in gaming?
Click to go to bottom
Been a while since I made one of these huh.
The title is pretty self explanatory. What are your favourite quotes from video games, be it inspirational or joking. From a good guy or a villain. Can be anything really. You can post the actual quote or a video of the actual quote if it's too long or you can find it. I won't judge. Much.
I have two from the top of my head.
Andrew Ryan- A time for all things
Kefka Pallazo- Life, Dreams, Hope
The former is because of the brilliant acting of Voice Actor Armin Shimerman. While many people point to the "Would you Kindly" scene as the games best, I absolutely love "A Time For All Things". It goes to show just how willing Ryan is to his beliefs. It's amazing.
Simiarly, Kefka's "Life, Dreams, Hope" is what pretty much defines his character and his Nihlism. I like the Dissidia version due to Dave Wittenberg's delivery and the "Why cling to life knowing you have to die?" part. Also, the dual beliefs shown between Kefka and Terra is pretty great in this scene, but that's getting into great scenes, not great quotes.
Surprisingly good analysis OP.
Personally the first quote that came to mind was "Pick a god and pray" because it's simple and powerful for a crit quote.
Y'all know who says this one. Unless you don't know FE Awakening
I'm sure I can remember others given the time, but I personally love Auron's "Now, now is the time" speech at the end of FF X.
This one is infamous
I've come up with a new recipeh!"
Ya know THAT game.
or... my other favourite Ignis: Seems like some kind of entrance.
Prompto : For entering....
Noctis: Damn right.
“Pick a God and pray” does deserve mention as one of the most badass one-liners in video game history.
In general Tales games are good with these towards the finales of their arcs, a couple of my favorites would be.
First would be from Asbel Lhant at the end of Tales of Graces
When Big Bad Lambda goes on a rant about how humans always cause suffering to those around them and don’t deserve to live, you know, the usual, Asbel responds with this.
“Okay, Then What? If you kill everybody you’ll be all alone, and you and everything in the entire world will die. Do you really want that? To which Lambda has no answer.
Then more recently in Tales of Berseria, Velvet’s Bird speech
Why do birds fly?
They fly because they want to.
Even if they don't have a reason.
Even if there wings break and they might die.
They don't fly for others or because they've been ordered by anyone.
They just feel "I want to fly", and take to the skies on their own.
That is my answer. That is who I am.
Pretty much says it all, in a game that illustrates the contrast between a desire for freedom and safety, Velvet clearly states her own values by answering a question asked near the beginning of the game.

Nero’s awakening speech is one of my favorites:
I’m also fond of this masterpiece from everyone’s favorite JRPG:
Some of my favorites from FFVII are:
Aerith: This guy are sick.
Cloud: Alright, everyone, let's mosey.
and of course the one from one of the most emotional scenes in the game;
Cloud: ...Shut up. The cycle of nature and your stupid plan don't mean a thing. Aerith is gone. Aerith will no longer talk, no longer laugh, cry...... or get angry......What about us...... what are WE supposed to do? What about my pain?
These are just the ones I could come up with off the top of my head.
"Everything that lives is designed to end. We are perpetually trapped in a never-ending spiral of life and death. Is this a curse? Or some kind of punishment? I often think about the god who blessed us with this cryptic puzzle...and wonder if we'll ever get the chance to kill him. Don't forget 2B's most cryptic puzzle.
Disappointed nobody else posted this
found another one. Just now in fact
"I am told when I was a baby, a monk prophesized tgar I would one day ascend to the Highest domain. When I learned about this, I was furious at him for sticking his nose into my affairs. It was not providence that brought me to the top! I would never permit something like that to interfere! I stand here now on my own two feet. As such, I am the on;y one who decides when those feet will move. There is no-one else who helped me get here - no others who are responsible for my success. There was no sage's admonition, no fool's blade, no impassioned entreaty pushing me upwards! Thus, not event the heavens themselves can force me to kneel in defeat."
- Wu Zetian, F/GO
I kinda love this quote. It takes place after you have defeated Wu Zetian and yet she gets back up and, even dying, refuses to give up. This quote just shows Wu Zetian's determination. She rose to the top, becoming the Empress of all of China, the only one in history I might add, from just a lowly girl beaten by her abusive relatives for fun and refuses to accept that anything other than her own actions helped her rise to the top. And her little speech just shows off her powerful spirit and determination to not let these actions be shown up. It's pretty amazing.
It's just a shame Megalos crushes her right after she makes this speech. It kinda ruins the impact.
"wake me when you need me"-Master Chief (2007)
This is like taking candy from a baby, which is fine by me
"Heya. You've been busy, huh? . . . So, i've got a question for ya. Do you think even the worst person can change. . . ? That everybody can be a good person, if they just try? Heh heh heh he. . . All right. Well here's a better question. Do you wanna have a bad time? 'Cause if you take another step forward. . . You are REALLY not going to like what happens next. Welp. Sorry, old lady. This is why i never make promises. It's a beautiful day outside. Birds are singing, flowers are blooming. . . On days like these, kids like you. . . Should be burning in hell.

"I am the pillager of twilight, Arsene!" Is one of the ones that pretty quickly popped into my head...
"Shadow and light are two sides of the same coin... one cannot exist without the other" -Princess Zelda, twilight princess, is another one I really love,
"Time to change fate!" -Lucina, it is another nice one,
"Don't misunderstand, you're the one who's going to disappear!" -Goro Akechi, the scene is sad but Goro is so admirable in it, (why he is one of my favorite characters)
"Shut your damn mouth you money-grubbing asshole!" -Makoto Niijima
"This is just my opinion but... being a hero doesn't mean you have to be perfect" -Robin, fire emblem warriors, this quote is one I agree with one hundred percent!
your quotes have like
no substance or impact to them twilight, imo
"No. You don't understand. I've been dead for 35 years. Today is the day I live." - Brad Armstrong
"You have to know this, Buddy. I was completely lost before I found you. You made me feel something again... Things no one has ever made me feel. You showed me what love really is. And that's why when I look into your eyes, it's the scariest feeling in the world... It's why I buried myself so deep in the darkness. But, I promise you. I tried so hard to fight it. I tried. And no matter what, I really did love you with all my heart. I'm sorry I failed you, Buddy. I miss you so much. Good bye." - Brad Armstrong
"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." - Sanae Hanekoma
"Every war is the result of a difference of opinion. Maybe the biggest questions can only be answered by the greatest of conflicts." - JC Denton
"Time... Time rots everything. Even hope." - Elizabeth Comstock
Another good one would be "hope will not die!" Which is also said by Lucina
It's " Hope will never die!".
Also, I like Sho Minamoto. He's fun
"Any tree can drop an apple. I'll drop the freaking moon."
And Cecil has a good one.
"I can turn darkness... INTO HALLOWED LIGHT!"
I don’t remember where this comes from but “doing the right thing isn’t always right, but it always has to be done.” Is a great quote for me
"It's funny because we're all living in a simulation and free will is a lie."
