Memes: Videogames

One is all began.

Surely someone out there knows why so many video game-born memes exist. We think it's all Metal Gear Solid 2's fault. Probably.

The following games have their own pages:

As well as the following studios:

Please add entries in the following format:

  • The name of the video game or company.

    • Further mutations and successor memes, if any.

Formatted examples:

  • Age of Empires: Wololo Explanation 
    • Roggan? Explanation

    • Briefly, a picture of Bernd Lehahn, one of the developers, at his computer, posted during the announcement of X Rebirth. The image on his computer screen started getting Photoshopped into all sorts of things ("this is what Bernd is really looking at"), including a picture of Bernd at his computer. This became a Discredited Meme after the people with Photoshop basically ran out of ideas.

    • Duke Nukem Forever: "Always bet on the Duke!"
      • ALWAYS!
      • Release date: When it's done.
      • The game itself counts as a Running Gag meme, due to the fact that it has taken all but forever for the game to be released.
      • "Duke Nukem, Forever Delayed" Explanation 
      • Conveniently, "Duke Nukem" sounds like "do que nunca" - portuguese for "than never". From this, the "antes tarde Duke Nukem" (a pun on "better late than never") joke is created.

  • "A POOL OF WATER!" from RC de GO, a very underrated racing game for the Playstation.
  • Sony's E3 2006 press conference brought forth three instant memes:
  • Zero Wing's "Blind Idiot" Translation opening is one colossal meme by itself, spawning edits, remixes and variations by the thousands, along with creating a host of lesser memes, though it long ago became a Discredited Meme. Even on this very wiki it is the Trope Namer or redirect for five tropes (War Was Beginning, Somebody Set Up Us the Bomb, All Your Base Are Belong to Us, You Have No Chance to Survive [which also has You Are On The Way To Destruction as a redirect], For Great Justice).
  • Perfect World: Asoteric Runewolf is casting a powerful attack! Keep your distance!

  • DeJap's Fan Translation for Tales of Phantasia featured, most prominently, adult humor that was never in the game to begin with. The most well-known line comes from this line of dialogue delivered by Klarth as the party is traveling on a boat to the next continent, as Klarth is asking the hero, Cless, which one of the girls he's going for, "Mint has that quiet elegance about her, but I bet Arche fucks like a tiger." Any Phantasia fan will tell you that Klarth is probably right.

  • Shout "Ubwaa!!" in any populated area of Phantasy Star Universe. Watch what happens. You all have Kireek to thank for that, by the way.
  • A simple complaint about a bad pick-up group experience on the City of Heroes message board turned "Go. Hunt. Kill Skuls" into the game's official meme. The boards went wild when then-head developer Statesman used it on the message boards. Then it morphed into a badge earned by defeating 200 members of the Skulls gang. It was incorporated into the official site's backstory for the gang. Most recently when loading screen messages were added to the game, a random message of "Go. Hunt. Kill Skuls" will occasionally appear.

    • Hey, Helen, I got you a diamond necklace...
    • Duke's declaration in Episode 10 that he is a terrorist has caused people to comment on how interesting Duke's life must be. It's become a meme that Duke is a detective by day, a marriage counselor by evening, and a terrorist by night.
      • Additionally, "because [I'm/he's/she's/it's] a terrorist" seems to be becoming the Retsupurae fanbase's answer to A Wizard Did It. This one is arguably the biggest meme the games have produced so far, to the point that some people have already begun to see it as an Overused Running Gag.
    • Ted's rendition of "Amazing Grace."
    • Ever since Retsupurae riffed on "Sir Basil Pike Public School," it's common to make jokes about Ted's actions in Ambition based on his role as a math teacher in that game. Examples include:
    "I hear Mr. Hartrup's class really blows."
    "Really? I've heard it's a blast!"
    "He does have a rather short fuse."
    "All his lesson plans tend to go out the window."
    • "[insert command here], or I'll blow us all to Hell!"
    • "Well, I hope you're jamming with whole-wheat bread."
    • A minor one is "I know that _______________________, because my bike has a unique bell."
  • HELLSINKER:
    • AN AWESOME PRAYER IS CONFLICT WITH US — KEEP YOUR DIGNITYexplanation 
    • YOU GOT INSANITYexplanation 
    • The game's barely-comprehensible plot and extensive use of proprietary terminology have become memes in and of themselves.
  • The Hungry Pumkin [sic] — from an edutainment Minigame Game teaching basic English, this specific minigame involves a Pumpkin character ordering various foods and eating them whole — including entire glasses and the tubs that fries come in. Maybe it's the phrases he says ("I'M VERY HUNGRY!"), the rude behavior ("NO! I DON'T WANT THAT!" in addition to leaving the restaurant without paying), the appearance of the Pum(p)kin, or all of the above, but this has gotten a small following on the web. Particularly on YouTube Poops.

  • Stay Tooned has Show Within a Show "Whinefeld," a parody of Seinfeld that consists of animated versions of Jerry, George, and Kramer saying "meh," "uuh," "uh huh," and such. It has gone on to become a huge thing on Youtube, appearing in a few Youtube Poops and the original clip having several remixes (most of them, however, appear to have been deleted for copyright reasons).
