So it is like 1:35 am.. on a Saturday morning.. after completing my Android project for my master program.. listening to some soundtracks and I realized I never talked about my favorite gaming quote.
I’ve played so many games searching for a story that captivates and intervenes with the emotional balance of the human being and I must say that the best dialogues I found in any of these games is present in Amnesia: A Machine For Pigs.
I used to listen to the game’s soundtrack each and every day.. as a background noise.. with all classical music elements combined with terrifying horror music… imagining walking down that haunted mansion.. the voice of the machine and of Mandus getting to me…
And then I remember this line:
“I lay there, and watched the god I had created die. At the end when we were cold as the stone we had hewn his body from. When the lights were nearly all extinguished, we heard in the silent distance, the Manpigs singing to one another. Then, as the last lights were gone, and we lay together in the deep, they drifted away, and all was silent. Such a silence, I have never known. And as the dust settled on my open eyes and we lay together embraced forever, I heard miles above us, the sounds of the city turning over in its sleep. A church bell ringing out. And in that moment, the new century was born.”
My favorite game quote.
