Mine personally is cole, cause the guy is just awesome with the "eat s**t and die" and goofie comments plus i wouldnt like to be a locust when the cole train running at me : O

Cole's my favorite, too.  "Here comes the Cole train baby!"

#3 Posted by Tamz (26 posts) -

Dom because he's a complete idiot, his terrible AI makes him such a lovable and endearing character, no but seriously - Cole.

#4 Posted by samcotts (2266 posts) -

Baird. He's the most interesting character.

Cole Train Hulk favorite Gears character.  Hulk like Cole Train cause Hulk always use him online.  Hulk change gamertag to Augustus Cole cause Hulk use Cole so much.  Hulk only one that actively use gamertag named after Gears character.  Marcus Fenix, Dominic Santiago, Damon Baird, etc all registered but never used by owners.  Most are registered on original Xbox and never used on 360.  That make Hulk MAD!!

Have to go with Augustus Cole aka Cole Train.

#7 Posted by MadMatr07 (200 posts) -

I would say Baird. He just seems like the guy who trys his best to be the tough guy when really he is a closet homosexual. You know the guy who is always like "I LIKE THE LADIES!!!"

Obviously Carmine, do I really need to explain why?

#9 Posted by Met2609 (555 posts) -

Marcus? They all have a generic tough guy personality, if you ask me.

#10 Posted by Blu_Magic (2021 posts) -

Cole and Marcus are my favorite characters. Marcus because he's a badass and Cole because of his funny catch phrases.

Nothing beats the Cole Train but a lot of people seem to like carmine

Mine's been Baird ever since he said

"There's room for one more, it's a f******* party down here"

#13 Posted by Cleric (286 posts) -

Baird, hands down.

The Cole train baby, wooooo!

#16 Posted by joslop500 (203 posts) -

Dom, because in Gears 2 we'll learn more about his family. Remember that they said that Gears 2 story will start with Dom searching for his wife.

Carimine looks the coolest, so him.

#18 Posted by joshuapohl (43 posts) -

Cole Train is a beast and my favorite character.

#19 Posted by ElectricHaggis (630 posts) -

Cole because he is more frightening than the locust.

#20 Posted by Burns09 (340 posts) -

Carmine. He can get shot in the head and come back to life, clearly the best .

#21 Posted by WorldsFastestShrimpPeeler (458 posts) -

My favorite is probably Baird.

#22 Edited by HistoryInRust (6475 posts) -

I'm going to go with Kim.  He's kind of like the gunner in the Death Star in Star Wars, the one who chose not to shoot the escape pod containing C-3PO and R2-D2. 

Without Kim's actions, his choice, his bravery, Marcus would have been surrounded and the squad would have never rendezvoused with Delta Squad.  It's a wonky example of the butterfly effect in video games.   

Story over, game finished.

Haha, i so agree with that one Burns, He was so innocent... It was obvious what was going to happen, but when was another story!
#25 Posted by DarkLegend (1387 posts) -

Marcus because he is the main.

I agree completely.  Cole is cool and everything but he's just a little typecast as the huge black guy that used to play football.
#27 Posted by twenty0ne (3071 posts) -

Carmine. Who doesn't like Carmine?

#28 Posted by PaperPlain (243 posts) -

Cole. Cuz he used to be a football player and now he's fighting in an apocalyptic war. Awesome.

marcus, he doesnt care about what happens he just does it, and the cole train, i thought they introduced pretty well

#31 Posted by comedy (96 posts) -

Kim, The Screamer.

#32 Posted by Ossi (1231 posts) -

Cole hands down!

#34 Posted by Shadow2K6 (381 posts) -

Baird.  I remember playing multiplayer as baird and I got two headshots in a row and baird said "Plain Talented" and then I said to myself "So true.".

Baird I Just Love His Smart Ass Comments

#36 Posted by xXLunchBox87Xx (35 posts) -

#37 Posted by Conner (86 posts) -

I like Baird and Cole the most. Cole is cool because of his rap.

#39 Posted by RedSox8933 (2428 posts) -

#41 Edited by herviross_2 (88 posts) -

Marcus cause he's just bad@ss

#42 Posted by JoeMarsden (304 posts) -

Dominic. Probably because he's...normal, not annoying, and kicks just as much ass as the rest of Delta Squad.

#43 Posted by zmf (48 posts) -

The Cole Train for simple "awesomeness" reasons.

#44 Posted by Strife88 (225 posts) -

Carmine, how could you not like someone with an awesome helmet like that.

#45 Posted by DorianBlack (311 posts) -

Dom because he actually has "character" and backstory. I like the other guys but Dom is probably the most thought out in my opinion.

#46 Posted by DARKIDO07 (876 posts) -

Hoffman because he reminds me of R. Lee. Ermery from Mail Call who kicks ass.

#47 Posted by Homer (1372 posts) -

Hoffman cause hes old.

#48 Posted by MattDoGG91 (51 posts) -

Dom just because he's awesome.

#49 Posted by Jordan23 (1000 posts) -

Cole, because he clearly tries and keep the group upbeat and loosen up. He should be even more hilarious in Gears of War 2... CAN'T WAIT!!!

None really. They're all airheads.
