Though new items and finishing combos usually attracted most of your attention, your favorite old-school video game catchphrase always interrupted whatever level you found yourself on to insert a bit of flair to the experience. Like your favorite comic characters' own catchphrases, older video game catchphrases now exist in pop culture on their own outside of the context of their original medium. If you heard one now, you would find yourself thrust back into past quests and challenges as if you'd played yesterday. What was your favorite classic video game catchphrase?
The best classic video game catchphrases instantly catch your attention while also revealing aspects of a character's personality or skills.
