"One last thing left to do. I was compelled to give Vlad his gun back..."
(Dramatic Gun Cock)
" bullet at a time."
Max Payne

"What do you mean he's unstoppable? You are superior to him in every way: You are better trained, better equipped, and outnumber him twenty-to-one. Do. Your. Job."
Nicole Horne, Max Payne

"Mine wasn't the most original approach to the problem. It wasn't as if it hadn't all been done before. An eye for an eye, the first principle of revenge, old as dirt, still going strong. The cardinal rule in going after someone with an intention to kill was not to make it personal, which it almost always ended up being anyway."
Max Payne

"They were all dead. The final gunshot was an exclamation mark to everything that had led to this point. I released my finger from the trigger, and then it was over."
Max Payne

"Max. We've gotta stop meeting like this."
Mona Sax

"The flesh of fallen angels! Am I dead? Am I alive? I don't know!"
Valkyr Addicts

"The truth was a burning green crack through my brain. Weapon statistics hanging in the air, glimpsed out of the corner of my eye. Endless repetition of the act of shooting, time slowing down to show off my moves. The paranoid feel of someone controlling my every step. I was in a computer game. Funny as hell, it was the most horrible thing I could think of."
Max Payne

"This is love. When someone drags you from the wreckage when you have given in, ready to just lie there and die. This is love. When someone, no matter what the cost, shows you there is hope, a choice, that you can put down your gun. This is love. Love hurts."
Max Payne 2

"You will never feel stupider than when you're lying on a heap on the floor wondering if it's worth asking the surviving armed thugs if they wouldn't maybe mind maybe amusing themselves for a few minutes while you get up, reload, and relocate your shoulders. Other great moments in my hall of fame include attempting to dive through a window that wasn't actually a dive-throughable window, which did nothing to help the comparisons between Max Payne's face and that of a pug in a front-loading tumble dryer, and a couple of occasions when I attempted to burst out into a corridor of hostiles guns blazing but crucially misjudged the position of the door frame."
Yahtzee, Zero Punctuation

If there's no light, it ain't a tunnel. It's a hole.
Max Payne 3

There it was, the soundtrack of my life. And, for a few seconds, came harmony.
Max Payne 3

I felt like the Avenging Angel. I looked like a fat bald dude with a bad temper.
Max Payne 3

So I guess I had become what they wanted me to be: a killer, some rent-a-clown with a gun who puts holes in other bad guys. Well, that's what they had paid for, so in the end, that's what they got. Say what you want about Americans, but we understand capitalism: you buy yourself a product and you get what you pay for. And these chumps had paid for some angry gringo without the sensibilities to know right from wrong. Here I was, about to execute this poor bastard like some dime-store angel of death, and I realized: they were correct. I wouldn't know right from wrong if one of them was feeding the poor and the other was banging my sister.
Max Payne 3

It's dark in some places, but it's sunny everywhere else.
Max Payne 3, closing
