What is a line of dialogue that always makes you laugh?
Keeping with the spirit of April Fool’s Day, what better time to think about funny lines of dialogue from games? I have three that always make me chuckle. One is from Dragon Age: Inquisition and the other one is from Remember Me.
In Remember Me, Nilin snarks out a couple of really great one-liners. But I really loved when, after a particularly long sequence of fighting, she clips,
This Little Red Riding Hood’s got a basket full of kick-ass!
Little Red Riding Hood’s.
Got a basket.
Full of kick-ass.
It was badass, hysterical, and unexpected, and makes me laugh. I find myself saying it to myself when I play other games, as well. I think it really encapsulates the gravitas of battle scenes.
The second one is, unsurprisingly, from Dragon Age: Inquisition. Cassandra and Leliana have a number of really excellent dialogue with each other, with Cassandra’s bluntness always in stark contrast to Leliana’s more nuanced way of dealing with things.
But my favorite interaction that legitimately made me Laugh Out Loud was not a line of spoken dialogue at all, but a silent moment that said so much without any words whatsoever:
There is just so much that is said in that moment, and when I first played the game, my friend and I burst out laughing. It’s not even that funny but… well I suppose humor is in the eye of the beholder, right?
What about you? What’s the funniest line of dialogue that you’ve ever heard in a game? Let me know in the comments!
