Hello everyone, I decided to make something dumb!

The Giant Bomb Quoter is a website that rotates one-off Giant Bomb quotes (out of context) one after another. A quote appears on the page and remains there for ten seconds, after which it is replaced by a new quote.

I pulled most of the quotes from the wiki, but I'd be happy to involve the community in this. If you have a funny quote, I'd love to add it to the list! I'm sure there are others who find this dumb idea as amusing as I do.

Somebody do this for me!

But on a serious note, I kinda wish I could set how often it rotates. Ten seconds feels kinda long for some of these quotes.

Well done sir. Fantastic first post. Also, if you haven't posted it already, "Cunt" - Vinny Caravella is quite a popular quote

These quotes are choice. Needs more Brad, though.

@Video_Game_King: If you're cool with "manual interaction" you can just hit F5.

I have no idea why "manual interaction" is in quotes.

Sadly, there is a dearth of quotes on his page here on the site. Here's a choice one if it hasn't already been added:

  • Once said "There's a lot of pixels in that nipple" in reference to Leisure Suit Larry on the 8-16-2011 Bombcast.

Well, the first one I got was about sensuality and blinking patterns.

The second one was just 'dirty buttholes'. So, yeah, this is about right.

@MrLandmaster: Great work, I really like it. My only suggestion would be that it'd be cool to have a "Next" button so I can just get a new quote without having to wait for the timer to tick down.

This is really good! Though I think that the quotes should change quicker than ten seconds. If it was shorter I would watch all day long.

I don't know if its due to the lack of quotes in the string its pulling from but I've got a few repeats not being on it for long, 'Fuck you Amazon!' and the 'I used to be Mayor but..' quote from Dave have appeared at least 3 times already. Other than that, great job! I kind of agree with @Video_Game_King 10 seconds for some of the quotes seems a little long, maybe if there was a refresh button you could hit to get to the next one?

Wow, moderator seal of approval! Thanks again for all the great feedback.

By popular demand, I have added a Next button so you can now cycle through the quotes as quickly as you want (though as Ravenlight mentioned, refreshing the page achieves the same effect).

Again, feel free to discuss your favourite Giant Bomb quotes and nominate new ones. I'll be adding to the list myself as I encounter new stuff. The only way to minimize repeats is to make this list as huge as possible!

That's what made it so great. He had the best zinger of the night, but he was even able to logically explain it. The previous band played a Meatloaf song that was about 8 minutes long, which basically pissed off everyone.
