From those unintentionally funny translation disasters to entire new languages being developed, much has changed with video games in terms of their writing. So here I present 100 of the most famous and the most infamous, the best and the worst, of video game quotations through time! Keep in mind that I only put one quote per game in this video. Enjoy!
For the sake of these quotes being overused beyond being anywhere near funny, "the cake is a lie" and "arrow in the knee" aren't being included.
