The phrase 'All Your Base Are Belong To Us' is known as a "Gaming Phenomenon". It origionates from the game 'Zero Wing',with a very bad Japanese-to-English translated intro to boot. It is considered one of the worst translations in gaming history. Commonly seen in Multiplayer Games such as Counter Strike, Call Of Duty ect, usually in team gameplay, when one team totally defeats another (See : Pwnage
), it will likely be said by the winning team, to dictate that 'All your bases' now belong to them.
However can also be used in a deathmatch
gamemode, if one single player stands out above the rest (See also : owned
). Sometimes is also followed up by the line (from the same game) "You have no chance to survive, make your time
Also used when the Terrorists destroy the objective in the de_ (Demolition) gamemode is the line "What Happen?" followed by "Somebody set up us the bomb!".
These are all lines from 'Zero Wing'.
