#1. Leaning over the bright display among the back aisles of a forbidden arcade, rows of other players silent, unnoticed, closing time never announced, playing for nothing but the score itself, the row of numbers, a chance of entering her initials among those of other strangers for a brief time, no longer the time the world observed but game time, underground time, time that could take her nowhere outside its own tight and falsely deathless perimeter. - Author: Thomas Pynchon
Gauntlet Arcade Game quotes by Thomas Pynchon

Gauntlet Arcade Game quotes by Ernest Cline
#3. War, we have come to believe, is a spectator sport. The military and the press have turned war into a vast video arcade game. Its very essence-death-is hidden from public view. - Author: Chris Hedges
Gauntlet Arcade Game quotes by Chris Hedges
#4. One night, walking along 8th Street in the East Village, I saw some adolescent boys, out too late and unattended. They were playing an arcade video game set up on the sidewalk, piloting a digital spacecraft through starlit infinity, blasting everything in their path to bits. Now and then, the machine would let out a robotic shout of encouragement: You're doing great! So the urchins flew on through the make-believe nothingness, destroying whatever they saw, hypnotized by the mechanical praise that stood in for the human voice of love. That, it seemed to me, was postmodernism in a nutshell. It ignored the full spiritual reality of life all around it in order to blow things apart inside a man-made box that only looked like infinity. You're doing great, intellectuals! You're doing great. Much - Author: Andrew Klavan

#6. I love an arcade. I love a boardwalk game. But I also love a rollercoaster. Though I think the rollercoaster love comes from the fact that it took a really long time for me to reach the height requirement, so I promised myself very early on that when I reach that, I will not take it for granted. - Author: Melissa Rauch
Gauntlet Arcade Game quotes by Melissa Rauch

Gauntlet Arcade Game quotes by Ernest Cline
#8. Some days I spent up to three hours in the arcade after school, dimly aware that we were the first people, ever, to be doing these things. We were feeling something they never had - a physical link into the world of the fictional - through the skeletal muscles of the arm to the joystick to the tiny person on the screen, a person in an imagined world. It was crude but real. We'd fashioned an outpost in the hostile, inaccessible world of the imagination, like dangling a bathysphere into the crushing dark of the deep ocean, a realm hitherto inaccessible to humankind. This is what games had become. Computers had their origin in military cryptography - in a sense, every computer game represents the commandeering of a military code-breaking apparatus for purposes of human expression. We'd done that, taken that idea and turned it into a thing its creators never imagined, our own incandescent mythology. - Author: Austin Grossman
Gauntlet Arcade Game quotes by Austin Grossman

Gauntlet Arcade Game quotes by Kylie Minogue
#11. The other video game adaptation I did was Mortal Kombat, and I did that because I loved playing the games in the arcade. I play all of the Resident Evil games because I'm very much immersed in that world. - Author: Paul W. S. Anderson
Gauntlet Arcade Game quotes by Paul W. S. Anderson
#12. If we can realize that life is always happening for us, not to us… game over, all the pain and suffering disappears. - Author: Tony Robbins
Gauntlet Arcade Game quotes by Tony Robbins
#13. I don't think anything in my game has regressed in the last couple years. I think I've only gotten better. I keep wanting to assume more responsibility in all parts of the rink. - Author: Jonathan Toews
Gauntlet Arcade Game quotes by Jonathan Toews
#14. Instead of learned young people we have donkeys with University degrees. Instead of future leaders we have mollusks with expensive blue jeans and phony revolutionaries with ski masks. And do you know what? Maybe this is another reason why our Moslem invaders have such an easy game. - Author: Oriana Fallaci
Gauntlet Arcade Game quotes by Oriana Fallaci
#15. I've stated before that my number one priority as the steward of the Dodgers is winning, and I believe that hiring Ned is a step in that direction. With his genuine passion for baseball, his intimate knowledge of all aspects of the game, and solid leadership skills, I am confident that Ned's experience will help the Dodgers put a winning team on the field, year-in and year-out. - Author: Frank McCourt
Gauntlet Arcade Game quotes by Frank McCourt

Gauntlet Arcade Game quotes by John A. Macdonald
#20. I think, immediately, that there is something wrong with us, perhaps unfixable, if my husband wouldn't think to tell me this. Sometimes I feel it's his personal game, that he's in some sort of undeclared contest for impenetrability. - Author: Gillian Flynn

#25.

Gauntlet Arcade Game quotes by Phil Klay
#26. Introduction!" And yet when a novel goes back to print for a new hardcover edition, there ought to be something new in it to mark the occasion (something besides the minor changes as I fix the errors and internal contradictions and stylistic excesses that have bothered me ever since the novel first appeared). So be assured - the novel stands on its own, and if you skip this intro and go straight to the story, I not only won't stand in your way, I'll even agree with you! The novelet "Ender's Game - Author: Orson Scott Card
Gauntlet Arcade Game quotes by Orson Scott Card
#27. You have to be uncompromised in your level of commitment to whatever you are doing, or it can disappear as fast as it appeared ... Excellence isn't a one-week or one-year ideal. It's a constant. There will be days when you don't feel on top of your game, or meetings in which you aren't at your best, but your commitment remains constant. No compromises. - Author: Michael Jordan
Gauntlet Arcade Game quotes by Michael Jordan
#28. During this pep rally, the cheerleaders would call two members of each class, one boy, one girl, to come down and take part in some embarrassing game--a relay race, or water balloon toss, or singing competition--all in the name of school spirit. Invariably, I was the seventh-grade boy called down. I suspected that this is because the head cheerleader was Rob Cantrell's girlfriend.

No misery I feel as an adult can match what I felt as I carefully stepped my way between the kids down the bleachers to the floor. The high school kids called my name, again and again, in falsetto, "Ves! Vessy!" and made kissing noises. Then I tried to run like a boy in the relay race, or sing whatever stupid song I was forced to sing in a voice quiet and masculine.

[...]

The next year the torture continued, but in a different way. It was less creative, a simple "Fag," as I passed the boys in the hall. What could they do? I didn't give them material anymore. I had swallowed my voice, and my walk was utterly nondescript. - Author: Todd Pozycki
Gauntlet Arcade Game quotes by Todd Pozycki
#29. You win the modern financial-regulation game by filing the most motions, attending the most hearings, giving the most money to the most politicians and, above all, by keeping at it, day after day, year after fiscal year, until stealing is legal again. - Author: Matt Taibbi
Gauntlet Arcade Game quotes by Matt Taibbi

Gauntlet Arcade Game quotes by Blake Griffin
#32. Being rich isn't about money. Being rich is a state of mind. Some of us, no matter how much money we have, will never be free enough to take time to stop and eat the heart of the watermelon. And some of us will be rich without ever being more than a paycheck ahead of the game. - Author: Harvey MacKay
Gauntlet Arcade Game quotes by Harvey MacKay
#33. I strip myself emotionally when I confess need – that I would be lost without you, that I am not necessarily the independent person I have tried to appear, but am a far less admirable weakling with little clue of life's course or meaning. When I cry and tell you things I trust you will keep for yourself, that would destroy me if others were to learn of them, when I give up the game of gazing seductively at parties and admit it's you I care about, I am stripping myself of a carefully sculpted illusion of invulnerability. I become as defenseless and trusting as the person in the circus trick, strapped to a board into which another is throwing knives to within inches of my skin, knives I have myself freely given. I allow you to see me humiliated, unsure of myself, vacillating, drained of self-confidence, hating myself and hence unable to convince you [should I need to] to do otherwise. I am weak when I have shown you my panicked face at three in the morning, anxious before existence, free of the blustering, optimistic philosophies I had proclaimed over dinner. I learn to accept the enormous risk that though I am not the confident pin-up of everyday life, though you have at hand an exhaustive catalogue of my fears and phobias, you may nevertheless love me. - Author: Alain De Botton
Gauntlet Arcade Game quotes by Alain De Botton
#34. Playing the game is far more satisfying than reading the rules. - Author: Bernard Haisch
Gauntlet Arcade Game quotes by Bernard Haisch
#35. For the several thousands of years before they became firefighters and physicians, women were sirens, enchantresses, snares. At times it seems as if female powerlessness is male self-preservation in disguise. And for millennia, this has made for a zero-sum game: A woman's intelligence was a man's deception. - Author: Stacy Schiff
Gauntlet Arcade Game quotes by Stacy Schiff
#36. I don't back down. Like, I don't know how to flop. That's never been a part of my game. For me to know if a guy likes to turn left shoulder or right shoulder in the post, I have an advantage. Or if he likes to go left all the time, I have an advantage. Or if he can't make open jump shots, I have an advantage. - Author: Kenyon Martin
Gauntlet Arcade Game quotes by Kenyon Martin
#37. Michael Horton gets at the heart of this: "The heart of most religions is good advice, good techniques, good programs, good ideas, and good support systems. . . . But the heart of Christianity is Good News. It comes not as a task for us to fulfill, a mission for us to accomplish, a game plan for us to follow with the help of life coaches, but as a report that someone else has already fulfilled, accomplished, followed, and achieved everything for us. Good advice may help us in daily direction; the Good News concerning Jesus Christ saves us from sin's guilt and tyranny over our lives and the fear of death. It's Good News because it does not depend on us. It is about God and his faithfulness to his own purposes and promises. - Author: Matt Perman
Gauntlet Arcade Game quotes by Matt Perman
#38. Charm is the ability to insult people without offending them; nerdiness the reverse - Author: Nassim Nicholas Taleb
Gauntlet Arcade Game quotes by Nassim Nicholas Taleb
#39. I'll never fully shake that sense of absolute impotence when destiny is at work. The feeling will cling to my feet forever, trying to pull me down. Even now if I mess up a pass, that malign force could be to blame. For that reason, I steer well clear of the DVD from the Liverpool game. - Author: Andrea Pirlo
Gauntlet Arcade Game quotes by Andrea Pirlo
#40. I love the game. I think it's a great game because you find out a lot about yourself. You test your mettle every week. There's no grey area, there's instant gratification and there are no quarterly reports. We're not just doing a little bit better. You know every Sunday what happened. - Author: Bill Parcells
Gauntlet Arcade Game quotes by Bill Parcells
#41. I can kick your head off, but I can't, like, play a stupid little video game. - Author: Kelly Hu
Gauntlet Arcade Game quotes by Kelly Hu
#42. My ultimate game - or at least one I would really like to see - would be something where it was like the beginning of George R. R. Martin's 'Game of Thrones', where you're Ned Stark, and you know that one of your friends has been murdered, and you go to the capital city and you have to navigate this web of court intrigue. - Author: Austin Grossman
Gauntlet Arcade Game quotes by Austin Grossman
#43. I'm not really much of a video game player; my son would be the expert in that department. The only game I would really play is golf, the Tiger Woods video game. - Author: Richard Roundtree
Gauntlet Arcade Game quotes by Richard Roundtree
#44. My dad was the force behind me early on. He was just infatuated with baseball. He was the one that basically taught me how to play the game. He gave a lot of his time working out with me, practicing and taking me to a lot of different games. It was hard work between both of us. - Author: Rafael Palmeiro
Gauntlet Arcade Game quotes by Rafael Palmeiro
#45. In the game of football, you can never be too sure of anything. - Author: Jason Babin
Gauntlet Arcade Game quotes by Jason Babin
#46. The sports page told me that the New Jersey Niggers had beaten the Boston Micks. Some player on the Houston Hebes had accused the San Antonio Spics of dropping their last game to get a higher draft pick. The league was expanding to Toronto, and since they had already honored African Americans, Irish Americans, Jewish Americans, and Hispanic Americans, they wanted to name a team to honor Native Americans. They - Author: MariJo Moore
Gauntlet Arcade Game quotes by MariJo Moore
#47. We were playing a game against an unknown and unforgiving opponent. The stakes were terrible - play well or die - but we didn't even know the ground rules. - Author: Nando Parrado
