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.
 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 referenceSource(s): wiki
