The other characters [[LampshadeHanging wonder exactly what he's thinking]].

* There's one point in the remake of ''VideoGame/{{Flashback}}'' where main character Conrad says, "Awesome-sauce," in response to some good news. And the way his voice actor says it, it's like he's actually talking about a physical sauce which he believes to be awesome.

* Griffith "Griff" Simmons' speech in ''VideoGame/{{SSX}} 3'' was... painful. And, indeed, he does say "TOTALLY RAD!" as he's hitting a particularly awesome trick. Not to mention Mac Frasier's terrible street lingo, which aged pretty pathetically. Yeah, Mac, we ''can'' say "bling bling." But nobody has wanted to since 2004.
