As the year 2010 comes to a close, I thought I’d look back at the AVGN quotes I enjoyed saying the most. This doesn’t reflect anything visual, just the quotes themselves. These choices are right off the top of my head, so I’m using memory as the filter.
5. STREET FIGHTER 2010
“Who would’ve thought that Street Fighter’s past lied in the future, which is now the present? Let’s take a look at this. I can only imagine, we’re gonna be Tiger Uppercutting through space and time, we’re gonna be throwing Sonic Booms on the moon, Hadoukens up Uranus! Fuck Street Fighter 4, this is Street Fighter 2010!”
“The REAL Swordquest is the quest for that sword and the other treasures. They belong in the hands of gamers who earn them. You know, everybody who put those games in their Ataris had a chance of winning. It was something to dream about. But that dream’s been thrown about the toilet. It’s thirty years later, but I say the contest must go on. Finish the last game! You can’t have earth, fire, and water without air! The balance of the cosmos must be restored! The true bearer of that sword must be found! The kingdom of nerd-dom depends on it!”
3. HOW THE NERD STOLE CHRISTMAS
“What turkeys worked on this murky mess of monkey jerky? Some quirky jackass from Albuquerque?”
2. BACK TO THE FUTURE TRILOGY
“Why does LJN have to make every NES movie adaptation? Couldn’t they have given somebody else a try? No, they wanted to incorporate the entire spectrum of awfulness: PURPLE for putrid game play, BLUE for bad musical abominations, GREEN for graphical farts and garlic, YELLOW for piss poor lack of loyalty to source material, ORANGE for “orange (aren’t) you a fucking idiot?”, and RED for high-stress, anger-inducing masochism. Put that all together, you got all the colors of the shit rainbow. Hooray LJN.”
1. DR. JEKYLL AND MR. HYDE
“What happened? I killed a bee? I killed something! The only thing you can kill in the whole game, and it’s a little, tiny, stupid, FUCKING BEE!”
That’s my personal Top 5. What were your favorite quotes this year?
