Welcome back to GameFAQs Competitions!

This month we have some video game quotes, the problem is that someone ran them through multiple language translations. Your task is to figure out what the quote was originally, and what game the quote is from. If a quote is from multiple games, then any of them will work. :P

Again, a disclaimer; This competition is not officially sponsored by GameFAQs or CBS Interactive and all monetary rewards have been provided by the moderation staff.
This month's prize is sponsored by someone who wishes to remain anonymous!

Rules
Do not share information or ask for information from other GameFAQs users that may help you gain an advantage in this competition. Consulting family and friends in real life, who do not plan to partake in these competitions, is fine. If you are caught cheating you will be barred from future competitions and any posts will be moderated with a karma loss.

To Enter
Send a PM to me (AssultTank) with your answers. In your PM, please use the subject line "January Competition Entry"

Make sure to number your guesses, and submit them in the following format;
1) Quote - Game
2) Quote - Game
3) Quote - Game

Scoring & Prizes
You will receive 3 points for correctly re-translating the quote and 2 points for naming the correct game that the quote is from.

Prizes are:
1st Place: One $50 Amazon Gift Card or 40 karma
2nd place: 30 karma
3rd place: 20 karma
4th place: 10 karma
5th place: 5 karma

In addition, two randomly-selected (non-blank) entries that did not win karma will also receive a 5 karma prize. So even if you have no idea what the correct answer is it may be worth participating, as you have a shot at the random prize!

Tied Entries
If there are multiple submissions that rank the same, they will all get that rank's prize, however this will bump down all lower ranked submissions by 1 rank. For example,
2 entries tie at 45 points for first place, 1 at 44 points, 1 at 41 points, 1 at 40 points, and 1 at 27 points.
In this situation, the 45 point entries would both receive 1st place. the 44 point entry will take 3rd place, the 41 point entry will take 4th place, and the 40 point entry will take 5th place.

The exception to the above is the $50 Amazon Prize, if you win this prize, you will not receive the Karma prize.

The Quotes! Sort of...
Note: The number after each quote is the number of translations it went through. The tool I used did 16 at a time so... <.<

I can identify exactly one (maybe two) of these.

Some of them are so generic, they seem effectively impossible to solve.

I've got a few already, at least by game and intuition. Remember you still get points for the right game! :)

Fun fact: several people have turned down prize money for karma.
