Trivia – Famous Game Quotes

I was thinking about famous video game quotes recently, and something occurred to me. Unlike well-known quotes from film or literature, which often gain recognition by being profound or delivered in a memorable context, most video game quotes tend to be remembered due to poor English translation. But as endearing as they may be, they are an increasing rarity in today’s gaming world. Others are simply cheesy or annoying.

But whatever the case, these quotes have transcended the games they originated from, and spread throughout gaming culture, as well as pop culture at large. Just for fun, I thought I would turn it into a trivia challenge. Well, “challenge” might be a bit of a stretch, as veteran gamers will likely recognize most of these immediately. Some even give themselves away, while others might test your gamer cred a little bit.

Just match the lettered quotes with the numbered game titles. I won’t post the solution. You’re on your own!


A) “The humanoid must not escape.”
B) “Wizard needs food, badly.”
C) “Thank you, Mario! But our princess is in another castle”
D) “It’s dangerous to go alone. Take this.”
E) “Blast off and strike the evil Bydo Empire!”
F) “A winner is you!”
G) “What a horrible night to have a curse.”
H) “Destroy the Core!”
I) “Are you a bad enough dude to rescue the president?”
J) “Barf!”
K) “Go home and be a family man!”
L) “You spoony bard!”
M) “Let’s attack aggressively!”
N) “All your base are belong to us!”
O) “Toasty!”
P) “Boomshakalaka!”
Q) “Game over, yeaaah!”
R) “It might be handy if you, the master of unlocking, take it with you.”
S) “Do a barrel roll!”
T) “What is a man? A miserable little pile of secrets.”
U) “Victoly!”
W) “Hey! Listen!”
X) “Do you know of a place where sailors hang out?”
Y) “The cake is a lie.”
Z) “I used to be an adventurer like you, then I took an arrow to the knee.”
