Pop Quiz: William Shakespeare or Legacy of Kain?

Awhile back when we were talking about actors who are never going to get their due, we mentioned the incredible work that was done by the writers and voice cast of the Legacy of Kain series of video games. Today we thought we'd put our money where our mouths are since we so often pontificate on the premise that video games deserve to be recognized as art. Below you will find ten quotes. Half are from plays by William Shakespeare (which we hope we can all agree count as art), and half are from the Legacy of Kain series.

Follow along on a piece of paper and guess which ones are the product of the most influential English writer of all time, and which ones comes from a sprawling tale about vampires. Each question is worth ten points. Note: We have used modern English stylings on some of the Shakespeare quotes to make it fair.
