How 'bout Voldo from soul calibur II, that's a manly outfit?!
*goes to hide*
*twitch*

Soul Calibur has been played to death in school, and everytime someone picks Voldo you can hear spiteful comments and general sounds of agony in the audience.

Anyways James Bond is a pansy and should be taken off, though he gets women he changes age and faces too frequently to be considered a man, that is more of a woman thing.

Bond is obviously a Metrosexual, and in nooo way are they manly. They're wusses.

Metrosexuals can be manly to. Being manly has nothing to do with whether one's metrosexual or not.

James Bond is manly, even if he's a pretty boy aristocrat.

Aristocrats, of the good old right sort, are manly too, but I can't think of any that are in video games.

James Bond is manly because he was in Goldeneye for N64, which is reason enough.

We need a poll on the manliest characters of all times in games, methinks.

So far, the candidates are:

Gordon Freeman
Duke Nukem
Nameless Marine / Doom Guy
Master Chief
Kane
Space Marine from DoW intro
James Bond

More?

Including Kane destroys the competition because there is no competition. No one can compete with the messiah.

... what about James Earl Jones? He's pretty neat.
That's the problem with heroes, really. Their only purpose in life is to thwart others. They make no plans, develop no strategies. They react instead of act. Without villains, heroes would stagnate. Without heroes, villains would be running the world. Heroes have morals. Villains have work ethic.

Well, I'm still thinking Duke can beat him in pure manliness, but if the competition was coolest game character ever, well, there's not much competition.

After playing Gears of War, my top nominations are:

Marcus Fenix & Dom (The other main hero from Gears of War, anyone that picks up their shot up comrade and says "Walk it off pussy!" is a man)


And given thought about the Halo thing, there is a character more manly than the master chief in halo. Sgt Johnson.

Nothing manly about beating a zombie to death with an oversized lipstick prop.

What about Serious Sam?

How 'bout Voldo from soul calibur II, that's a manly outfit?!
*goes to hide*
I had a teacher we called Voldo, because he was so sneaky.

Master Chief vs. Samus Aran. Samus wins. Discuss.

Wins what, exactly? ;)
She gets to stick it in his pooper.
