At first, I was going to pick a really easy one:

But then I saw that game had already been used in this thread several times, so I thought of this one:

"Last version was better. More bugs. Bugs make game fun."

But that's unfair. Some of you probably weren't even born when that game was released, so I ended up with one (slightly reworded to keep it from being obvious) which should be pretty easy:

"I think this Bumpus goon is overcompensating for his lack of stature. And besides, I've got a lot more trophies than he does."

Hey, that's "Sam & Max Hit the Road" :7:7 (one of my favo(u)rites). You're right: it was easy.

P.S. It would have been a bit tougher if you had omitted Conroy Bumpus. That name was a dead giveaway. :P

You're absolutely right. Yes, I could have omitted "Bumpus", but I decided on just leaving out "Sam". Anyway, I figured this thread isn't just about being difficult, it's about celebrating our favorite games, right? :)

In case anyone was wondering, the other two lines were from Grim Fandango ("What a relief...") and Planetfall ("Last version was better..."). Planetfall was a text adventure written by Steve Meretzky and released by Infocom back in 1983.

Right. :)

George Stobbard in Broken Sword I?

zobraks 06-15-2010 09:04 AM

No, it's not George and it's not any of the Broken Sword games.
The quote is from another popular adventure.

It was not Tex Murphy, was it?

chal 06-15-2010 11:15 AM

Twist of fate?

zobraks 06-16-2010 01:22 AM

It wasn't Tex Murphy (although the character who said those words was also a square jaw detective ;] :7) and the quote isn't from Twist of Fate.

chal 06-16-2010 01:51 AM

square jaw detective?

Discworld Noir?

Alrighty then, this shouldn't be difficult:

"That doesn't need a jawbreaker"

Yes!

I remember when playing CMI, I got really stuck and was using that friggin jawbreaker on almost everything and heard that phrase over a zillion times!

Okay, another easy one then. I'm sure this has been said in several adventure games, but anyone who has played the game I'm thinking of will cringe at:

"That doesn't work."

I've no idea but I thought I'd revive your quote :)

Thanks. I am surprised no one got it yet. It shouldn't be too difficult. If you played the game you ought to have that line stuck in your memory somewhere.
