What is your guys’ favorite quote from video games? I personally like the Freespace 1 Ending monologue:
[i]I know why the Ancient ones were destroyed and I know what they knew. I know that if not for the Shivans, they would have perished long before. Without the Shivans, someone would have discovered the Ancients in their infancy, and eliminated them, just surely as they eliminated countless billions of others.
I believe it is only the destroyers who are killed. The Shivans are the great destroyers but they are also the great preservers. That is why when we moved into space, there was no one powerful enough to kill us. Long had we been the destroyer. Our turn had nearly come.
In the Vasudan war, we learned how to adapt, we learned how to study our enemy, we learned how to overcome, we learned how to survive. And so we did.
All the jump points from Earth are gone. But the Shivans can rebuild them. I’m told we can expect them again, but not in my lifetime. Such is liberation.[/i]
