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.

"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!"

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

World of Warcraft?

Kingdom Hearts?

"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.

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!"

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."

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.

"You die here!"
*scoffs* "We both know that isn't true."
Darksiders 2?

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.

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.

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.

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!!!"
