What voice acting parts really made an impression on you?

Link or mention them. Unless you have a video clip that's short, consider queuing to that moment, saying where to start, and how long one should listen for


I had to drop everything just to hear this again from Halo 2 (20s)
https://youtu.be/WCPJgyofFeo?t=3m8s

Portal 2 ending
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y6ljFaKRTrI

from MDK2 (10s)
https://youtu.be/y54_IKL0e6g?t=31s

... hmm, I thought I'd have more. Will post back if I remember them

StarCraft2 Legacy of The Void (6s)
https://youtu.be/sB-S_m0CZho?t=2331

Mega Man 11 (5s). Might sound gay out of context

Some memorable lines that I like:

"I invited your best friend the companion cube. Of course, he couldn't come because you murdered him."


"Stay awhile, and listen!"


"SUPER. HOT."


"Warrior needs food badly!"

Portal, Diablo?, Superhot, Gauntlet.

The Gauntlet line immediately reminded me of this one:

"Blue Elf is about to die".

Change colour and class to suit your choice of character.

Likewise. Something about the delivery of that line and its repetition makes it completely unforgettable. Though ironically, it makes it easy to forget the other 99% of the game.

Can't beat Zaeed Massani's stories from Mass Effect 2. He had a great gravely voice that was perfect for the character.

He was like a way cooler Uncle Albert from Only Fools & Horses.

"Jack, subject Zero, whatever you call her, helluva girl. Could've used a destructive little b&@*h like that ten years ago when we dropped blind in a Krogan DMZ. Took out a lotta Krogan that day, but we lost way too many men".

He practically had a war story for every situation, and he loved his gun.

Also, the bromance of Dom and Marcus through Gears of War, when Dom finally finds Maria and when he drives that truck.

There are a lot of voice lines from games that I find memorable, but I'll try to just list a few games and usually one line per game.

Command & Conquer Franchise:
Notifications: "Unit ready, unit ready, unit lost, unit lost."

The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind:
Ordinator: "We're watching you, scum."

The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion:
Guard: "Stop right there, criminal Scum!"

The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim:
Heimskr (What I effortlessly remember): "Talos the mighty! Talos the unerring! Talos the unassailable!...???...born of the North...???...I do this for you, Red Legions, for I love you. Aye, love. Love!...???...the future of Skyrim! The future of Tamriel! And there it is, friends!...???...We are the children of man! Talos is the true god of man!... with man? Ha! They can barely tolerate our presence on earth! Today, they take away your faith. But what of tomorrow? What then? Do the elves take your homes? Your businesses? Your children? Your very lives? And what does the Empire do? Nothing! Nay, worse than nothing! The Imperial machine enforces the will of the Thalmor! Against its own people! So rise up! Rise up, children of the Empire! Rise up, Stormcloaks! Embrace the word of mighty Talos, he who is both man and Divine!...???."
Heimskr (full): Skyrim:Heimskr - The Unofficial Elder Scrolls Pages

World of Warcraft Hallows' End event:
The Headless Horseman: The bells have tolled! Shelter your weak, your young, and your old! Each of you shall pay the final sum! CRY for mercy! The reckoning has come! Mwahahahahaha! Mwahahahahaha!

Hearthstone: Curse of Naxxramas:


Hearthstone: Blackrock Mountain:
Majordomo Executus: "You think you've won already? Perhaps you need another lesson in PAIN!"
Maloriak: "My failings will be your downfall!"
Nefarian: I have tried to be an accommodating host...but you simply...will NOT DIE...Time to set all pretense aside..and just...KILL YOU!

Hearthstone: The League of Explorers:
Arch-Thief Rafaam:
Spoiler (click to reveal)
"I like your deck. I think I will TAKE IT!"

Rafaam Unleashed: "RAFAAM!!! The Supreme Archaeologist!"

Hearthstone: Knights of the Frozen Throne:
The Lich King: "Lonely hunter, strip away your little friends and what is left to oppose me hmm? Mwahahaha."

Hearthstone: Kobolds and Catacombs:
King Togwaggle: "Is okay. Better to be dying young than to never be dying at all."

Hearthstone: The Boomsday Project:
Dr. Boom: "I didn't get my doctorate in explosives just to have everything I've built blown to pieces!"
Dr. Boom: "Concentrate. CONCENTRATE!...Am I distracting you?"

Hearthstone: Rise of Shadows:
Arch-villain Rafaam: Kalec will summon dragons to UTTERLY DESTROY YOU! Do not worry. I will be fine.

The entire intro to Dracula X: Nocturne in the Moonlight. In Japanese, that is – I can't take the English dub, there.

And some selected few from Metal Gear Solid (also in Japanese), like "I don't need it anymore. My tears have already dried out".

"GUTTER TRASH!" – the victory line from the boxing butler in Street Fighter III.

"Chekku chekku" and "BUAH" – the squeaky voice from the protagonist in Maid to the right, an indie Castlevania rip-off, when she reached a checkpoint and died, respectively.

In my case I feel like it's all memes and famously terrible voice-acting from a long time ago.

Is Adam Jensen saying "I Never Asked for This" memorable in the Deus Ex games? Not really. But it's a meme.

Is Solid Snake saying "Kept you waiting, huh?" memorable in the Metal Gear Solid series? Not really. But it's a meme.

Stuff like "Jill Sandwich" and "Master of Unlocking" is memorable for being deliciously bad. There are whole youtube videos dedicate to hilariously bad VA, most of it pretty old.

I'm not sure I could name a line that was memorable for its impact in that moment.

I don't remember the exact words, but I remember Otacon's dialogue when you get on the elevator after trying to retrieve a stealth suit being pretty epic. Though I suppose that might not count as "for its impact".

For some reason, I also remember Snake's smug "In my stomach." at the start of the game when he's asked how he smuggled his cigarettes along on the mission, though it falls into the bucket of "references nobody will catch if used on the fly".

I also remember a bunch of shouted lines from combat in Valkyrie Profile and Star Ocean: The Second Story, mostly because the US voice work was not great, e.g. "I invoke the power of the glacial blade. Finishing strike: Icicle Disaster!!"

Bloodborne, Father Gascoigne (the first non-optional boss, and one of the hardest in the game):

Papa Gas wrote:
"Ahhhhhhh, oh? What's that smell? ... The sweet blood, oh, it sings to me. It's enough to make a man sick. AhhhHahahahaaaaa!"


When you read it it seems okay, but not that great. When you hear the voice actor deliver it mid-battle (before he transforms; I guess it makes him "sick"), it is amazing. I've fought him dozens and dozens of times, and it still sends a chill down my spine when I pay attention to it.

His speech starts here, about a minute in...

"Pear into Peaches!" is the most famously misunderstood quote from that game. Yeah the voice work in that game is so funny. My cousin and I used to just listen to the voices and laugh when we were young. I can still recall a bunch of them laugh

"Well, that's somewhere around eighty points."

Here's some good Precis and Dias ones:

"Theeeeeere's Mr. Enemy."
"I'm not gonna looooooooooose."

"Waste of time."
"Piece of junk."

Chisato also sounds like a donkey during one of her attacks.
