Last week, YIKES Stay Gooned was browsing Wikiquote, as he often does to have fun and learn things, when he came across the article Fictional Last Words in Video Games. He shared it with the good-timing gamers from SA's Imp Zone forum, and together they highlighted notable entries that will inspire you, take your breath away, and make you laugh. Warning: Contains spoilers regarding character deaths in video games (most of which are pretty old), if you care about that kind of thing.
