3) “Do a barrel roll!” from Star Fox 64

Ahh, Star Fox 64, the best of the Star Fox games… an always enjoyable game. One of the most memorable things about this game is not necessarily the game play. It’s the voice acting and the corny quotes that seem to come out of their mouths. Wolf saying “Can’t let you do that Star Fox!”, Falco’s thick Brooklyn accent, Slippy’s voice of an indeterminate gender, but the most memorable of all the voice acting is of Peppy Hare, Star Fox’s mentor. With his redneck-sounding voice, he commands you to “Do a barrel roll!” (press Z or R twice!) which is basically just doing a 360 degree.

Why this one caught on is beyond me, but I’m not going to argue it. The entire game is extremely quotable, but I always wondered by this one was the most quoted. Perhaps it’s because of Peppy’s voice or because you hear it a lot. Forgive my memory if I’m wrong on the latter.
