Ok one of the many minuses of doom is the marine. Throughout the game the amount of words that came out of his mouth are equal to zero. If u were cought on an alien infested martian base, and survivors were talking to u, and asking u questions, u would answer right?? ya of corse you would. i hate games in which the main character doe not reply to other characters in the game.. can someone tell me why the hell did id and other games companies make the main character dull and boring?? is it really that hard to make him talk??

Moved.

The very fact that the marine is silent throughout the course of the game, slauter, gives him a more mysterious aura and perhaps makes for a more interesting experience of actually playing his role. In my mind, if the man were to consistently exchange converasation with fellow marines and UAC emplyees, he might be endowed with a much more vulnerable image. He is a 'silent hero,' shall we say. :D

He is simply "Our Hero"(the marine's "name" at the ending of Doom 2) :p

exactly. the reason he doesn't speak is you are him, not just controlling him.

In other words, Manslauter, you are dull, I am dull, CorT is dull, Majic is dull... :lol:

eh, maybe Id and the other companies are too lazy to add voices to Gordon Freeman, Samus, the doom marine and possibly other characters. :p

I highly doubt such. id especially is very concerned with the personality of it's game characters and the image presented by them, plus they made effort to keep the game under a classic style. The marine from Doom and Doom 2 never made a sound, unless he was hurt or upon death (if you were joking, I get it).

Yeah yeah. I get that, but it'd be good if there were a few one liners like when you kill groups of enemies and bosses, like in Duke3D . That was awesome.
