Quotes: What the Hell, Player?
Bernard: Sometimes I do stupid stuff and I don't even know why, as if my body were being controlled by some demented, sadistic puppet master.
Weird Ed: Well, we all feel that way sometimes.

"If I had seen the life that my sons so callously destroyed, would I had left him stranded without hope? Would I had sacrificed his dreams, to claim my own?"
Atrus, in one ending to Myst III: Exile

No, no, no, no, no, no, no! How about saving the prince before you leave? Like, is this game titled "Jill Leaves Level 14 Without Saving the Prince," or what??!?
— In-game prompt, Jill of the Jungle, Episode 3: "Jill Saves the Prince"

"Fighter ships from the Argon Federation are now being launched. They have orders to kill."
— announcer, X3: Terran Conflict

"You get real close to yourself. You freaking moron."
Legends of the Jedi's response to the command "approach self"

"None of this would have happened if you had just stopped."
Konrad, Spec Ops: The Line

"The shooter's ball's the main event, as everybody knows;
Just a shame this year it came to such an early close.
It seemed like it would last all night, at least from six to six,
But Miss. White Phosphorus showed up and made us feel like dicks.
Yahtzee, "The Shooter's Ball", Confessions of a Game Reviewer

"We haven't killed anyone, you have."
Blonde Janitor, Hotline Miami

"You don't have an inferiority complex. You're just inferior."
The hidden announcer, Wave Race: Blue Storm

"Hey! You! Yeah you! I'm down here busting my ass while you sit on yours, watching me jump around? How is that fair?"

"If you take Razzly into battle against the Hydra, she discovers afterwards that the creature was pregnant and performs a postmortem caesarian section, preserving the species from extinction and saving the forest. If you leave her out of her team, the Hydra's young are stillborn and the marshes become unihabitable. With their home destroyed, Hydra Marsh's humanoid residents pack their things, hit the road, and attempt to conquer Razzly's home on Water Dragon Isle for themselves, taking after the example of El Nido's colonialist humans. Razzly's sister is killed during the struggle, but the invaders are defeated. Afterwards, you get to sit there and take it while they tell you what an unconscionable monster you are for driving them to do this, and that the responsibility for their dislocation and decimation is all on your head. Letting events play out this way is the only way to acquire Razzly's level 7 tech, which is a component of one of the two triple techs in the entire game. Saving or harvesting one of the Little Sisters in BioShock only to reap the same rewards either way hardly compares to the burden of a decision like this."
