Meh to polls. 

I always thought of Master Chief as the unoffical Xbox mascot. But now with the wild success of Gears of War, a new challenger has entered the fray.

Master Chief
Advantage-
Doesn't talk (more on this later)
Cool armor
Established history with the console.

Marcus Fenix
Advantage
Talks
ATTITUDE
Cool armor
sweet-ass graphics.

I think the advantage still goes to the Chief.  Fenix does talk but he has the vocab of a 12 year old.  His lines read like they were written by high schoolers thinking of what marines would actually say.  It's just crass for crass-ness sake.

Yeah, definitely Master Chief.  Fenix was the least interesting character in his own game.

Hmmm.

Chief hands down.  Now...compare the Chief to the Cole Train?  That'd be a tough fight...

Marcus kicks ass.  I think Felix is the 360 mascot.

I actually liked the dialogue in GoW.  It's not Shakespere.  But I thought is was better than 99% of the cheesy video game dialogue I have heard.  I especially liked Baird and Cole.

Still master chief, although I will always have a soft spot for Fenix.

I don't know, the four reoccurring characters from the Fuzion Frenzy 'series' of games are fairly notable.  So notable, in fact, that I only know their colors and not their names.

But seriously, I would still go with Master Chief.  Give us GoW 2 and maybe Marcus can claim that mascot spot.

Don't we need a version of Halo on the 360 before we start talking about GoW2?

How can Master Chief be the 360 mascot when there hasn't been a 360 version of Halo yet?


Just asking.

A whole lot of people will be downloading the Halo 3 beta in a few weeks.  Should the conversation be tabled until then? slywink

Opps.  I was thinking "Xbox mascot."

Why don't you say the same thing about Blinx - that amazing time sweeper furry!?

Just saying.

I think the American Destroyer as depicted in Battlestations: Midway should be the mascot.  Mmm. Heavy Metal.

Hopefully BLINX3 can go back and un-suck the first two games.

Have they had the scene yet where Master Chief takes off his helmet to reveal he is really Gordon Freeman?

Oops, should have used the spoiler tag.

Blinx?  saywhat

The character design reminds me of a puke stain that somewhat resembles a fox.

Mascot?  How about one of those twenty fucking lizard-things that bit my level 7 face off when I was defending Kvatch in Oblivion?

Advantage Marcus, what with there actually being a released Gears of War game for the 360.  For the entire XBox franchise?  Who knows.  But for the 360, gotta be the game that's actually out already.

The Chief, he was the original X-Box exclusive, and despite him not saying much in general, he's had more charactarization than Fenix, even though Fenix had so much more opportunity for characterization.

Besides, Master Chief fought in the open and won, whereas Fenix was always cowering behind from low wall.  Tongue

They hit the "reverse time" button and deleted it from the video game annals.

They sold 6 copies which means they sold ~50% of the disks printed.

Bah.  I have no doubt that in either Gears of War 2 or Halo 3, they'll reveal that Marcus Fenix IS Master Chief.
