Hello everyone,

First I would like to thank those who participated. We had ~30 entries for this competition, and the winners are as follows.

First Place with 55 points: $60 Steam Prize
@ChickenBot

Second Place with 50 points: 30 Karma Prize
@Lesm64
@Kelayr

Third Place with 45 points: 20 Karma Prize
@KainWind
@metalslug
@cyko

Congratulations everyone! You'll receive your karma prizes before long. In addition the two random 5 karma winners are @Takato and @zyxomma100 .

As you can see, it was really close this time, the difference between first and third was only two correctly guessed quotes!

Now the correct answers are as follows;

1. Use the boost to get through – Star Fox
2. It's dangerous to go alone, take this. - The Legend of Zelda
3. I used to be an adventurer like you, but then I took an arrow to the knee. - TES Skyrim

12. I won't scatter your sorrow to the heartless sea. - MGSV: The Phantom Pain
13. They played us like a damn fiddle! - MGSV: Ground Zeroes
14. War has changed. - MGS4 (I did accept the Fallout quote: War never changes because when I ran it through the translator tool the same number of times I did get the same result.)
15. Go dance with the angels. - Ace Combat 6
16. Cheers loves, the cavalry's here! - Overwatch
17. Let's mosey – FFVII
18. I never asked for this. - Deus Ex: Human Evolution

tfw you've never played a Metal Gear game.

15 and 16 were probably the two toughest that I actually got.

Whoa, wasn't expecting to be first at all! :D Thanks so much, AssultTank! Had a lot of fun with this one. And congrats to the other winners!

There's a number of these I'd never have been able to get but I'm kicking myself for having missed (11). For the most part, all the Metal Gear worked in my favor. XD

Okay, some corrections for typos in the OP.

Grand prize is $50 not $60. It was correct in the initial competition post.

@metaIslug is the proper spelling not @metalslug. My apologies.

Can't believe I did this good. I really like that line "I won't scatter your sorrow to the heartless sea".

Great contest!

Looks like I ended up with 35 points (got most of the easy ones). I probably could have placed if I had put a little more effort in, but I just didn't have the time.

Congrats to all winners!

Wow what a gigantic turnoff that 25% of the quotes were from the same franchise that I never played. Glad I didn't bother entering.

I kind of agree that that is an absurd number of MGS quotes. >_>
