We love Gears of War. No matter how much people complain about the terrible writing and unrelatable characters, Gears will always hold a special place in our hearts. It’s a brutal game in every sense of the word and that has to count for something. Love ‘em or hate ‘em, we want to know who your favorite COG soldier is. Is it Captain Do-Rag himself? Or maybe you’re more particular to Mr. Frosted Tips. Whoever you vote for, just remember this one thing…. KRILLL!!!!
If your favorite COG didn’t make the list, let us know in the comment section below.
Marcus Fenix might just be the biggest badass in gaming. Very few men can rock a do-rag with such an obvious lack of self-respect. Sometimes you just find yourself staring longingly into his do-rag. He may look like a complete ass, but this man can get the job done.
Cliff Bleszinski, co-founder of Epic Games and head designer of the Gears of War series, is leaving Epic Games. We salute you in your travels into the unknown. Will he continue making games? Who knows. Will he leave a trail of badass-ery in his wake wherever he goes? Most definitely.
