There are many, but I'll just quote some of them:

1. Aaaaaaahhhhhh....Mmmuch Better!!!
- Duke Nukem 3D.

I still say it sometimes when I take a leak, and somehow feels....really much better while saying it on the act... 🤣

2. Starcraft - Go,go,go! Used to say it while driving and when the cars in front of me are about to move when the traffic lights turn green.

3. "How goes the war against the humans?" And "Soon, the earth will be in my grasp" (while clenching my fist too)
- Kilrathi Emperor in Wing Commander II opening cinematics. In fact, I have memorized unknowingly the whole conversation in this cinematics.

4. "Mwuahahahahahah...." Murray from Curse of Monkey Island.

And many many more, but I might bore everyone.

Popcorn, the melody you mentioned . Was written by Gershon Kingsley all the way back in 1969 , who passed away in December 2019. And oh yeah you are absolutely correct. It would be one that could get on your mind big time. Oh by the way, the version, you are thinking of, when it comes to the pc game is from 1983. Now I feel old.

You know, it's always nice to see fellow old timers posting again in the forum. 😀 I wonder what Great Hierophant, Amigaz, and 5u3 are doing right now.

I'm not that old... I was 5 in 1989. The computer in question was probably older than me. 😀

I wonder too, what Amigaz is doing. Perhaps some "googlefu" could help us some of the way.

Great Hierophant, is at least writing the blog Nerdly Pleasures. 😀 Which I highly enjoy 😀
Joakim, I was born in 1982. The first time I touched an IBM pc compatible was in 1988/1989. And it was a paint program, I played around with. at my first scool, in my "kindergarten class/grade". Now adays that class/grade is called "0. grade". Also the first computer I touched was a Lambda 8300 https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lambda_8300 which was a ZX 81 clone, that my uncle (mothers brother) had.

These are the fisrt that come to my mind:

Scorpion's "Get over here" mostly from Mortal Kombat 4
The price's monologue from The Sands of Time intro. https://youtu.be/6M3hXgQb154 I don't know if my two hands are enough to count how many times I've beaten the game.
The same monologue from the end of The Two Thrones https://youtu.be/qjm5eNlXln4?t=20 It's much easier to count.
The first time you hear Head Radio in GTA III when you get into the Kuruma.
Caleb's "I live again" from Blood.

That one like a lot of Duke Nukem's lines is borrowed from a movie.

"Avatar! Know that Britannia has entered into a new age of enlightenment! Know that the time has finally come for the one true Lord of Britannia to take His place at the head of His people..."

That periodically pops into my head when I least expect it to.

The more I learn, the more I realize how much I don't know.

🤣 Absolutely!

Doom sounds, they are engraved in my brain as Duke3D lines. Every time I see a pole I can hear "shake it baby!", and "hail to the king, baby!" sends me to the Evil Dead series 🤣 🤣
All pc speaker games sounds. Even Alley Cat 😀

And Diablo music in town, "Ahhh, fresh meat!" every time I am at the supermarket 😀
