    Another 9/13 here. I haven't played most of them so it was mostly guess work. Harder than I thought it would be.

    9/13 isn't bad. Great article by the way! I love reading great quotes, no matter where they come from.

    well, I got the bioshock ones right.

    I DID think it was from V for Vendetta!

    9/13. Not bad, considering that I was only sure of two of them.

    Really should have gotten B ~_~ I wasn't a fan of BSI, but now that I'm told where it was from, I remember hearing it. I should have gotten 12 right, but alas I did not. As it is, I'm a failure at 6/13 The only one I was really sure of was #13, because I actually played that game to completion. Most of these games I either didn't play, or didn't play far enough to hear them. On the writers, I don't read much in the way of memorable quotes. The only one I can really recall offhand, is "I am become death, the destroyer of worlds."

    #2 I mean. I should have gotten 2....

    Fun fact: that phrase is actually from Hindu scripture, said by Vishnu. Then Robert Oppenheimer, speaking about his witnessing of the first atomic bomb test, quoted the line. it gives me chills every time I watch the video. Here: http://www.atomicarchive.com/Movies/Movie8.shtml

    9 out of 13. Only one that I knew for certain.

    who is frederick niche? nietzsche's french cousin? anyway, as a fellow proverb lover, this article is quite pleasing to see on this site. i also happen to be a fan of all of the games used as examples, so props there, too. "the more you know, the more you know you don't know what you know." daevid allen, paraphrasing aristotle. always been one of my favorites :)

    Oh my god destroyed by phonetic spelling, fixing that asap. Thanks for pointing it out.

    Alright, I have a new favorite article on GR.

    Chrono Cross!

    I love how for Question 10, you used the cover from a foreign version of A Name of the Wind.
  • GR_ZachBetka - October 11, 2013 5:42 p.m.

    It's my favorite version of the cover, save maybe this one: http://www.patrickrothfuss.com/images/page/cover_277.jpg

    Heh, interesting article, and those were fun quotes to read, regardless of whether I got them right or wrong XD Anyway, I got 9 out of 13, which I think isn't bad considering I haven't played roughly half of the games in this list. I will say though, the Bioshock Infinte ones are the easiest because the game is very recent, and those quotes still linger in my brain XD Most of the others I guessed right though, were definitely thanks to the screen-shots above, honestly. I also took the approach of choosing the longest quote each time a JRPG appeared... Worked every time, save for FinalFantasy X, haha.
