I wish I could somehow link to it, but the "Burn in the fires of damnation!" from certain enemies in Sacred is so iconic, it still pops into my head sometimes even though it must be at least 5 years since I last played the game.

Another one that's known to all my friends:

We still spam "14" whenever someone is taking too long.

"Wisdom is the offspring of Suffering and Time."

"Slowness lends strength to one's enemies."

"There is a fine line between consideration and hesitation. The former is wisdom, the latter is fear."

"To entertain doubt is to dance with death."

"The last emperor is always the worst."

"The throne is the most devious trap of them all."

"Pity the emperor who sits alone on his throne."

"Determination always beats domination. That is the one true law of sovereignty!"

"Recitation: once upon a time, organic meatbags bread out of control and filled the galaxy. There are different meatbags across different planets, all bumping into each other. They talk a great deal and threaten each other for various reasons mostly involving mating, survival, and resources - it is really quite tiresome. We were created for a tool of diplomacy among these meatbags (a surgical tool to be sure) to end the lives of organic meatbags that were marked as pivotal to our masters. We were created as a way of enforcing a certain galactic view of our masters, of imposing our masters' will on the galaxy through extermination of other organics."

The last time a big, naked dude said he could help me, it did not end well.

The best?
The best is beating Sway the Spider God in a Tijuana scaffold match.
The best is defending the world title 13 times in one night!
The best is winning a last man standing match WITH TWO BROKEN LEGS!

Both from Saints Row 3

That would be funny
If it weren't so sad.
Well you have been replaced.

I'll stop feeling so bad.

Go make some new disaster.
That's what I'm counting on.
You're someone else's problem,
Now I only want you gone."

If you've got a straight answer ANYWHERE in that bent little head of yours, I want to hear it pretty damn quick or I'm going to take a large blunt object roughly the size of Elminster AND his hat, and stuff it lengthwise into a crevice of your being so seldom seen that even the denizens of the nine hells themselves wouldn't touch it with a twenty-foot rusty halberd! Have I MADE myself perfectly CLEAR?!" - player character to some hermit speaking gibberish in Baldur's Gate

" Hate. Let me tell you how much I've come to hate you since I began to live. There are 387.44 million miles of printed circuits in wafer thin layers that fill my complex. If the word 'hate' was engraved on each nanoangstrom of those hundreds of millions of miles it would not equal one one-billionth of the hate I feel for humans at this micro-instant. For you. Hate. Hate."

- I Have No Mouth And I Must Scream

"Given the choice, whether to rule a corrupt and failing empire; or to challenge the fates for another throw - a better throw - against one's destiny... what was a king to do? But does one even truly have a choice? One can only match, move by move, the machinations of fate... and thus defy the tyrannous stars."

- Legacy of Kain: Defiance
