u mean a conversation between the characters?? A tough one.. Though it would be between Mona Sax and Max Payne where they end up having $e* :oops:.. Other than that it would be between AGENT 47 and diana just before he was betrayed by the assosiation in HITMAN 4 :) and also where agent 47 confesses to the church father in HITMAN 2

Manny Calavera and Celso Velasco at the beginning of Grim Fandango.

I could probably think of better ones, but that one stands out for some reason.

Almost every conversation in the Metal Gear series is epic

I like the dialog in GTA 3 and GTA VC a lot, lots of quality writing right there. I love the dialog in Mass Effect, especially when Shepard is pissed. Kotor has some good conversations too. I enjoy talking to Bastila and Carth, emotions and accusations flying between walls... Dreamfall has very good dialog-sequences too. Can't say that one conversation really stands out in a game though. Well, there is one in Kotor, but I can't write which, since it's a major spoiler.

im not gonna lie...i still havent had an epic moment in conversation... all the games i play are pretty much like watching bad actors...(or its a game with no conversation at all...)

I don't know, but all of them are in the No One Lives Forever games. I'll give a bunch of my favorites.

Deaf Administrator

"Excuse me, sir, do you have the time?"
"No, sir, I do not have a dime, and I don't have much use for beggars."
"No, not a dime, the time."
"Don't get snippy with me or I'll have you arrested!"
"Are you deaf?"
"How daaare you threaten me!"
"Oh, nevermind." *walks off*
"Coward!!"

-

I Don't Want a Monkey

"You look like you need a monkey."
"Excuse me?"
"I have a very fine monkey for you. Only twenty dollars, American."
"Sorry, I don't want a monkey."
"What do you mean?"
"I don't want a monkey!"
"Ten dollars."
"No! I wouldn't want the dreadful thing even if it were free!"
"Free?! You want my children to starve?!"
"If they're hungry, I suggest you feed them the monkey."
"This is a valuable monkey! My wife would kill me if she knew I was offering it to you so cheap!"
"You don't seem to understand! I DON'T WANT A MONKEY!!"
"...Infidel."

-

Rusty Spoon

"Mr. Volkov said the girl will be here soon."
"How will we recognize her?"
"You didn't see the photograph on the bulletin board?"
"What photograph?"
"Mon Dieu!"
"I'm sorry, nobody told me."
"Mr. Volkov was very specific at the meeting this morning. He said 'Be sure to study the photograph on the bulletin board. If you fail to recognize her, I will assume something is wrong with your eyes and remove them for you."
"I missed the meeting, I had to drop my daughter at school! ...I don't want him to scoop out my eyes!!"
"I have no sympathy for you. You knew this was an important mission. You should have made other arrangements for your daughter."
"Can you describe the girl for me? What color is her hair?"
"Why should I tell you? It would serve you right to have your eyes gouged out with a rusty spoon. You need to learn to prioritize."
"Please, I beg you, is she young or old, how does she dress?!"
"Sheee's 50 years old and wears a suit of armor."
"I don't believe you!"
"She just turned 14 and she runs around in a bath towel."
"Curse you!! May all your sons marry camels!!"
"If you must curse someone, curse yourself. There are a lot of people who would kill to have this job. You should take your work more seriously."
"Please... Just tell me color her eyes are? Blue? I'll kill every woman with blue that I see! Brown? Green?"
"I have to get back to my post. See you later... If you have eyes."
"Ahhhaagh!"

-

Horse-puckey

"I haven't seen you around. I'd definitely remember.
"What did I tell you about flirting?"
"I wasn't flirting. I was just making an observation."
"Oh, horse-puckey..."
"I'm serious. Come on, honey. You're the only flower in my garden."
"I'm not fallin' for that. You're sleeping on the floor tonight."
"What? Why?"
"I'm not speaking to you."
"Oh, come on, don't start that again!"
"I'm not listening to you."
"Fine, have it your way. A little silence might be refreshing."

-

Idiot

"Keep your men out of sight. We don't want to spoil our trap, do we?"
"Yes, sir! I mean, no, sir! I mean, yes to the first part and no to the second part?... Sir!"
"Shut up! Just do as I say, you idiot."

-

Criminal Sociology

"What's in all those kegs, anyway?"
"Beer. We supply H.A.R.M.'s entire staff with the finest Deutsch brews."
"Really? That must be a lot of beer."
"Indeed! Our studies show that criminals drink three times as much alcohol as law-abiding citizens."
"So beer turns people into criminals?"
"A correlation doesn't imply causality. Just because criminals drink a lot of beer doesn't mean that beer causes crime. It's possible that people with criminal tendencies enjoy beer because it helps to soothe their conscience. Or perhaps criminal behavior is caused in part by a genetic predisposition that also, coincidentally, makes criminals like the taste of beer more than the average person. Who knows?"
"You seem very knowledgeable about these things."
"Criminal sociology is a hobby of mine. I think it's important to understand not just the individual psychological roots of one's behavior, but also the social circumstances that foster that behavior. Whether we like it or not, we are shaped by our environment."
"Surely you're not suggesting that individuals aren't accountable for their actions."
"Oh, no, of course not. Just because we are products of the societies we're born into doesn't absolve us of personal responsibility. Our religions and laws teach us what is right and what is wrong. Frequently, the right choice is the more difficult path to take. It requires sacrifice, self-discipline, patience; virtues that many of us find somewhat lacking in our natures."
"But what if you're born into a hedonistic culture?"
"Look across history. The reason hedonism is discouraged by most religions and governments is that it weakens a civilization. It breeds sloth, petulance, degeneracy, and selfishness. A divided nation is a fragile nation waiting to be conquered. Unity is strength! Humans instinctively fashion order out of chaos. It is a natural, probably genetic impulse. Therefore, even an individual born into troubled times has the capacity, and even the duty, to behave in a manner that promotes unity, however difficult it may be."
"Then what about us?"
"I can only speak for myself. I am a product of a broken household which introduced a general lack of self-confidence in me at a very early age. These feelings of inadequacy blossomed into anger as I matured, that the rigors of adolescence with the teasing and abuse and akwardness tha we must all endure only exascerbated. But even though I've identified the source of my problems, I'm still too childish and petty to become a responsible, mature citizen."
"Well, admitting you have a problem is the first step, I suppose."
"I like to think so."

Fickle Bastard

"Hey, Phil."
"Yes?"
"You bought that Bentley yet?"
"No, I've decided to go with a Jaguar."
"I thought you hated Jaguars."
"I never said that."
"Yes, you did. You said you'd rather stick a knife in your eye than buy a Jag."
"You're confused."
"I think you're just a fickle bastard."
"Sod off, I'm not fickle."
"Oh, sure you are. Remember that bird you real smitten with?"
"Tracy? She's disgusting."
"You see? You thought she was a fairy princess of some kind."
"Liar!"
"And remember when you said you'd never use an automatic pistol because they were unreliable?"
"I've always used automatics, revolvers are for half-wits and old ladies!"
"You know what the worst part is? Not only are you a whimsical bloody bastard, but you're also a belligerent ass."
"Shut up if you don't want me to clobber you."
"Waaaiiit a second, tough guy. We both I know I could reach down your throat and pull out that flimsy spine of yours, so don't go shootin' off your mouth at me."
"...I'm not fickle..."

-

He Tricked Me

1 - "What were you doing down there?"
2 - "Vacation."
1 - "You must take me for a fool. No one would come to this place for a vacation!"
2 - "I come for hunting."
1 - "Admit it. You're a spy."
2 - "Why would I come here to spy?"
1 - "Because you know that a top-secret project is being worked on this base!"
2 - "It is?"
3 - "Igor..."
1 - "What?"
3 - "You just told him about the project!"
1 - "He tricked me!!"
2 - "How did I trick you?"
1 - "Eghy-y-you got me to tell you about Project Omega!"
2 - "Project... Omega?"
3 - "Igor, you fool!!"
1 - "Damn it!! This prisoner is too devious!! We'll have to torture him."

And many, many, many more.

Its not really so much a conversation really since the main character doesn't talk. But the ending to portal. I don't know if that would count, but that whole game was genius.

A conversation in a game is just that. A depicted conversation, taking place between any two beings. "Conversation" doesn't inherantly imply it's taking place with you, the personal character.

Sam (Reading a Sign): Don't Feed The Submarine

Max: What do you feed a submarine?

Sam: Nothing, weren't you listening?

Sam and Max ftw!

Some conversations in The Witcher

the conversation between gunther and anna in Deus ex 1 where gunther thought the there was a conspiracy about denying him his orange soda. he kept getting lemon and lime soda. poor guy :P.
#22 Posted by BlackAlpha666 (2614 posts) -

I guess RPGs where you have to read the text usually got the best converstions, because you can use your own imagination to create the scene however you want.

The text conversations aside, I think Giants: Citizen Kabuto has some of the funniest conversations. For example the one where Delphi finds out who her real father is.

Half life 2 Episode Two got many conversations, you don't see that much in shooters. Some would call the amount a soap opera, but I like it. Other games that got good conversations are Neverwinter Nights 2 Mask of the Betrayer, KOTOR 1 and 2, The Witcher. But I can't recall a particular conversation that I think is the best.

#23 Posted by Nikalai_88 (1755 posts) -

It lasted more than 10 minutes, was filled with major twists and revelations and came from the game that arguably had one of the best stories in a video game with writing that was the top of the class. The Ravel revelation scene from Planescape Torment.

Ok...hands down..no contest...the drunken insult battle in Escape from Monkey Island 2...(i think it was 2)
#25 Posted by lenson (2515 posts) -

I think I want to change my answer to Armed and Dangerous.

The Rhino scene in it was pretty funny.

#26 Posted by mechwarrior_bob (1789 posts) -

some of the Conversations in Kotor 2 were pretty good...mainly between your old hag and that pistol jockey (can't remeber names it's like Kreia and...?)

#27 Posted by filmography (3202 posts) -
my vote is for the conversation in kotor when revan is about to face malak on the starforge.

Oh, yeah, that game is really funny. It has some hilarious cut-scenes, the game itself is as mediocre as they come, but the story and the vids between the levels were worth it. Seems like there's about 200 people that played it, lol. I never hear about it.

BTW, people, why write so many spoilers? It's a really bad thing to do against fellow gamers, you ruin the plot-twists and the ending of a great game.

i agree, i played the game,, awesome :)

also in SWAT 4,, when the boss orders the officers to open and clear " get it open, and clear it, go when ready"

and when he says " fall in and prepare to move " " get behind me, i'm on point " " these dynamites could send us to the high heaven "

That was my first reaction to this thread, too. Nothing else comes close. ;)

Monkey Island 2 had a drinking contest, but no insult fighting, iirc. Are you thinking of the insult sea battles from the Curse of Monkey Island?
