How do I cite quotes from a video game?

I'm taking direct quotes from what the charaters' scripts within the game.

    Never thought about this one before. I cite a lot of different sources. I would do it like this:


    "the quote." Title of the game. Developer of the game. Date released.

    [edit] Optional parameters

    date: Full date of publication of the specified version, in ISO 8601 YYYY-MM-DD format, eg. 2006-02-17. Must not be wikilinked.

    publisher: Publisher, if applicable to translation/edition

    language: language of publication

    isolang: If language is different than "English", add the ISO 639 code for the language to automatically add a language icon in front of the ref

    version: version, if applicable

    platform: platform, if applicable to the reference. (If citing something that is the same across all versions, this is unnecessary)

    quote: the quote that is used as the reference

    Source(s): wiki
