Dom was such a bad ass to me til he became such a suicidal bitch in the 3rd game..
Through out this war he should have assumed the worst had happened.. He was even ready for it. He finished it.
Then when he could have been even more of a bad ass to go on with life despite his suffering, EPIC decides to have him off himself for absolutely no reason.
Seriously, driving a truck into that gas station was absolutely unnecessary. You know what would have worked just as well? A ******* grenade.

Yeah because a grenade is as big of an explosion as a 						*******					 tanker of gas exploding idiot.   
   
Don't hate on a story because you can't understand good storytelling. That was the only way to save Marcus and the others. A grenade would not have done the trick, not even close. Dom went out like a true hero, sacrificing his own life for the ones he loved. He went in there knowing he wasn't going to make it, but he knew it might give the only things he had left on Earth a shot.   
   
If that's not courage, than I don't know what is.

Are you ******* kidding me? The gas tankers in that game are so volatile they'll explode if you tap them with your pinky hard enough.
It was not good story telling, and nothing about that game was good story telling. It was fun as hell to play, sure, but we all know it was all about the blood, gore, and brutal violence. I felt legitimately sad for Dom when he held his wife in his arms, and I felt for him from then on..
But then this scene.. I just sat there thinking "really? THIS is how he's going to die?"
And then I couldn't give a damn about his character for the rest of the game.

A grenade would not be a large enough explosion and the only way to save his friends was for that tanker to blow up. A grenade barely kills one grub you think it would kill a whole platoon of them? No. They didn't have time to set up some kind of trap so the only option Dom had was to drive the tanker into the crowd so it blows. THAT WAS HIS ONLY OPTION to save his friends. He died nobly, and in the way a hero like him should die, to save the only people on the planet he actually cared about.

This is a rare case of an opinion being wrong. You're wrong.

"Suicidal bitch?" The poor guy lost everything. His brother died in the Pendulum Wars. His children died on E-Day, and his wife went missing after going insane. Keeping Marcus alive and the hope of finding his wife were the only two things he had left. When he was forced to kill his own wife, that left only one thing: Keeping Marcus alive, no matter the cost.

The entire point to the scene was that he had just been cut off from the rest of the team. A grenade wouldn't do it because he didn't have any. He ran out of ammo. He knew he was going to be killed either way. Dom didn't want to die, it wasn't as though he was looking for any excuse to get himself killed. But he was willing to die for the one thing he had left... Marcus. And if by sacrificing himself he could save his best friend, he'd do it in a heartbeat. And he did.

Hoffman himself said Dom would " **** his last drop of blood" for Marcus.

They didn't decide to just kill Dom for no reason. And it was a stunt that worked because it kept you guessing. Dom had been a main character, a very important one. We all expected that Dom might die by the end of the game, but then again, they knew we expected it. So when it came to Mercy, all of us were left wondering. It was only halfway through the game, and it seemed so obvious. None of us wanted to believe they'd kill Dom off there.

But they did. They did, and for most of us who'd been playing the games for years, it hit home.

I thought it was a laughable way to kill him off. And yeah, I call him suicidal because of his behavior through out all of the 3rd game as he's alive.
Almost constant bitching and depressed moaning coming from him. This was supposed to be a game about hulking badass soldiers with ******* CHAINSAW guns, then this **** happens.

I felt more when the 2 Carmine brothers died than when Dom died.

You're saying that if you lost everything you ever loved, your entire world was in ruins and ashes, and there was absolutely nothing left for you, you'd be absolutely unfazed? To be honest, Dom takes everything extremely well. Any sane person in his shoes would be in a far, far worse state of mind.

Gears is fun because of the blood, guts, and gore. But that's not why I like it. I like it because (the first three) have a very serious story that's done in a great way. Dom's death was great because it kept us guessing up until the scene where it happened, and he died in exactly the way he needed to, saving Marcus. It wasn't about the Squad, it wasn't about saving the world. As long as Marcus went on living, Dom was happy.

Not that I mean to sound insulting, but it sounds like you don't appreciate the good writing present in Gears.

Me and my friend call him butt 'cause we are sure that he and Marcus are in a homosexual relationship and he's the bottom.
