The VideoGamer podcast has a segment called, "Who am I?" which features an intro sequence made up of famous soundbites and sayings from games. I was able to identify most of the games and characters from the clip but not all of them.

You can hear the intro here:

The intro is at 38:39.

From my own knowledge and some research I have identified the following games and characters from the intro:

  1. "You were almost a Jill Sandwich" - Barry Burton - Resident Evil
  2. "Itsa me, Mario! - Mario Mario - Super Mario 64
  3. "Would you kindly..." -
  4. "Listen" - Zavi (I think) - The Legend of Zelda: not sure which game
  5. "Let's go bowling" -
  6. "This is my favourite store on the Citadel." - Commander Shepard (male) - Mass Effect
  7. "War never changes" -
  8. "Snaaaaake!" - Roy Campbell (not sure) - Metal Gear Solid

Can anyone identify the games I don't know and confirm the ones I am not sure about?

(and correct any I got wrong and identify any references I missed)

  • @RalZarek for 7, "War Never Changes" is heard throughout the Fallout series. I would also say that all of your assumptions though are correct.

  • The edit has missed the time stamp to the intro, it is at 38:39.

I believe you have everything that you knew correct, and for the ones you're not sure about, the complete list is:

  1. "You were almost a Jill Sandwich": Barry Burton from Resident Evil
  2. "Itsa me, Mario!: Mario from Super Mario 64
  3. "Would you kindly...": Andrew Ryan from Bioshock
  4. "Listen": Navi from The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time
  5. "Let's go bowling": GTA IV as said by Roman
  6. "This is my favourite store on the Citadel.": Commander Shepard (male) - Mass Effect
  7. "War never changes": The Fallout games (more specifically, Fallout 1 which you can hear in the beginning of that video).
  8. "Snaaaaake!": Hal "Otacon" Emmerich from Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty

Corrections of the original list:

  • You had Zavi incorrect, as the fairy's name is Navi in the game.
  • Andrew Ryan is the Bioshock reference, who famously would always ask the protagonist "...Would you Kindly..."
  • Roman, from GTA IV was Niko's cousin who also famously always called you and asked to go bowling.
  • The "War Never changes" reference can be heard in all of the fallout games, but more specifically, it sounds like Fallout 1's.
  • The Metal Gear solid reference sounds like Otacon from Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty.
