“Rise from your grave.”

From: Altered Beast

Genre: Video Games

Who said it?: Zeus

The story behind the quote: The quote comes from the “classic” sidescrolling beat ’em up, Altered Beast. The original game was actually an arcade game but Altered Beast only reached prominence when the Sega ported the game over to their 16-bit Genesis console. The game’s plot has Zeus resurrecting two Roman centurions and charge them with rescuing Athena from the Underworld. The game’s main gimmick is the characters transforming into different beasts like werewolves, dragons and tigers.

The quote actually comes from the 16-bit port of the game. When the game starts, Zeus commands the player to… well, you know.

Geek wisdom: We are not immortal and we all have to pass away from this world some time. However, we can still become “immortal” in a sense if we manage to leave a legacy before our time in the world ends.

Don’t let your time in this world be a waste. Make yourself be remembered.
