Ultimate in manliness is the Space Marine sargeant from the Dawn of War intro:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0cWnuxLbc34

1) he charges even though he has the defencive position
2) He shoots an ork in the face point blank then guts another in one swift move
3) Once he gets blown up, he runs up a hill in power armour that has lost its power supply (so he is carrying the full weight) jsut to stick his flag on the hill to show what a bad ass he is.

Emperor bless that man.

He does however die.

In the manliest way possible!

planting a flag is so amazingly UNmanly. I mean, i guess in a game where that sort of thing matters it might help but all it really means is that you sacrificed yourself so that a bit of fabric could be planted in some dirt for what will inevitably be very little time before the enemy just takes it down again. IF you're going to plant a flag, at least get someone to take a putlitzer-prize winning photograph of it or do it on the moon or something.

Flag is the symbol and army needs symbols. That's why there's uniforms too. They represent everything that soldier stands for, fights for, dies for. No soldier wants to bring shame on their uniform nor their flag. That's why it's important that manly man carried that flag to position where it stands proudly and shines it's everlasting glory to both friendly and enemy troops. Encouraging hearts of fellow soldiers when they are in need for example, striking fear to the ungodly hordes of enemy. If enemy wants that flag they are gonna fight and die for it. They have to build bridge from their own corpses to that flag. I say that he was manly, really manly. Being manly means often being stupid, even more so when word "honor" comes around. But manliness is more than pure heroism.

My vote goes for Duke Nukem. He got big guns, bigger guns and just insane guns. He could make his foes smaller too and crush them under his boots like ants. That's some manliness! He was man of few words and they all were very macho. He was ladies man and encouraged them to ("shake it, baby!") and always had dollar or two for poor bargirls. And when I think about that when he did nice goal-kick of enemy head after using it as... Well... He was just so manly man that I've never ever met such manliness before nor after.

Boobs alllways win.

Manliest game character, to me? Barrett from FFVII. Bad-ass AND loved his daughter, more than anything. That's a man.
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.

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?

Auron, from final fantasty X. He was a badass for years after his death. That's gotta be worthy of something.
(i) There will come a day when nothing you did matters. But it is not today. Here and now, you are alive.
(ii) Live well under your own authority.
(iii) Abolishing suffering is impossible. Lessening suffering is mandatory.

Anyone from FF can't be considered for application, as they don't exude the Badass Aura.

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.
