"Now the first Modern Warfare, by the same token, appeared to have been made with more than just a slightest nod in the direction of the Military-FPS genre's "angrier fans." Particularly the ones who felt the constant focus on boring old WWII meant there weren't enough desert-dwelling brown people to shoot, thus making it that much harder for them to use the game as their personal 9-11 revenge simulators."

Brian: What are you playing?
Tim: Tomb Raider III.
Brian: She's drowning.
Tim: Yeah.
Brian: Is that the point of the game?
Tim: It depends what mood you're in, really.
Brian: What sort of mood are you in then?
Tim: Well, I got a letter from my girlfriend this morning three months too late explaining why she dumped me. It was full of "You'll always be special" and "I'll always love you" platitudes designed to make me feel better while simultaneously appeasing her deep-seated sense of guilt for running off with a slimy little city boy named Duane and destroying my faith in everything in the world that is good and pure.
Brian: So it didn't really work then.
Tim: No, it made me want to drown things.

"Finally, I get to kick his ass!"
The Angry Video Game Nerd, upon confronting the Final Boss of The Angry Video Game Nerd Adventures, Fred Fucks/Fred Fuchs

"It's the end of Pokémon Hunter J, and a more fitting end there never was. After an entire season of her easily and callously defeating all efforts to capture her - after her deadly competence and indifference to any form of morality, after stymied attempt after stymied attempt to give her comeuppance.... Pokémon Hunter J dies, impotent and enraged, roaring useless commands to terrified lackeys as her ship groans under the relentless pressure of millions of pounds of water and crushes the ship and her inside it. She dies a horrible, miserable death - there is no escape, no last minute redemption or arrest or any of the usual bullshit. She dies. Unlamented. A more fitting end there never was."
— "Pokemopolis", celebrating the death of the biggest case of Vile Villain, Saccharine Show in Pokémon
