"Once I too was a trainer who had fun during my battles... So you see having fun in battle is foolhardy. A perfect win... that is a Pokémon Trainer's duty."

Gabe: He just killed fifty people with a knife! Okay? That is the last person who should have The Bomb! He's no Modern Warrior. He's a fucking psychopath!
Tycho: He's just doing what works.
Gabe: Yeah, but what about double shotgun dude?

Tycho: Double Shotgun Dude is a dog rapist. On this point, there is consensus.

"You know, playing this doesn't make you cool like a real rock band. Guys? Didn't you hear me?"

"...Stop having fun!"

"And what of the nine-year-old girl? Perhaps she had no business playing in the first place. From Thomas's view, getting her off the machine allowed him to face the opponents he "should" be facing anyway."

"ITT WE'RE HAVING FUN WRONG."

"My review isn't going to convince any 2D fighting game fans, as they probably already have this game and are vehemently writing down where I'm supposedly wrong in my review."

Calvin: This is hard data! It lets you quantify your enjoyment!

Hobbes: I thought fun was supposed to be fun.
"I don't care if it's just a game, there still need to be some standards involved. Filling the Pokedex is an optional part of the game that has no actual reward to it, so the only reason to do it is for personal satisfaction. And if you can be satisfied by having other people do a significant amount of the work for you, then your standards are pretty low. Who cares if it's just a game? Either do something right or don't do it at all."

Internet meme regarding Super Smash Bros. Melee... and Brawl, for that matter.

King Dedede: Brawl, huh? Meh. Too bad it doesn't stack up to a game made in 2001. It's floatier than Melee, you can't combo as well, it's way too easy to recover, they took out wavedashing, the air dodge is simplified and the tripping, come on! Definitely a weaker follow-up to Melee, what a shame. Poor, naive Kirby, you don't have a clue.
