"it's okay, tell the spartans to go home... WE'RE MARINES WE GOT THIS"

Post your favorite (or most hated) marine moment

On infinity i opted to try the warthog with marines instead of the scorpion. I decided it wasn't working so I got out of the driver's seat and immediately a marine hops in and runs me over. This was after I spent a good 10 minutes driving back and forth to do damage on the ghosts/wraith.

has to be Halo 2... i dont remember the name of the mission, but the one when you teleport from earth to the new installation.

It was nothing special, but fighting side by side with the ODSTs for the first time kicked ass.

I want to get the ODST emblem tattooed on my arm honestly

Just don't ever tell the truth when some chick at a bar asks you what it means.

"Wow cool tatoo, Skull with fire.. what's ODST mean?"

"Oh it means Orbital Dr-err.. I mean.. it's our band logo.."

People don't seem to realize, these Spartan-IV's are marines. The whole legend and myth of a Spartan is out the door.

Remember in Halo 1 and 2 going anywhere as Chief, and Marines and civilians gasping that they see a Spartan and it gives them hope?

Yeah, let's see if they do the same when you have basic Marines in Spartan armor.

Anyone can see the dude-bro Spartans lead by Palmer in Spartan Ops.

Compare them to Chief, Noble Team etc.

We've gone from "I kill the enemy, but I do not hate them" to "Let's go show these freaks who god is, HOO-RAH" etc.

i facepalm myself, when I hear Palmer or Miller talk. Emile was a hardass, but he understood what being a Spartan meant. No fear, honor, respect etc. He manned the cannon first and would have stayed behind had those Elites not ambushed him etc.

I just hate how we've gone from amazing characters like Captain Keyes, Admiral Hood, Liutenant Commander Miranda Keyes, SGT. Johnson, Noble Team to the like of Captain Del Rio, Sarah Palmer, Jim Miller and now Roland.

Well thats the thing though... even the Spartan IVs are like "Holy Crap thats MC" We never got to see a II or III on Earth in Halo 4... yes i do know that when they first come across him in the campaign its no biggie, but those Spartan IVs are supposedly the best that the UNSC has to offer, they were in a tight situation and werent removed from said situation until the ending of the game. So we really dont know what the deal is postgame.

Lasky, Palmer, and the other main guy with a name, they all knew Chief personally and im sure they werent surprised to find him on a forerunner planet giving the Covenant ten kinds of hell

Halo CE:, second level. I always loved being part of a squad in games, and I loved being one of the dudes in this level. There's one part, which I always saved for last, where there are marines hiding among rocks. You go help them then after a while they retreat up a hill to a cliff's edge. There was usually 7-8 dudes and it was so fun fighting alongside them all.


As a kid I thought this was the s***.

Yeah it's so sad how we've gone from generic sci-fi cliches to other generic sci-fi cliches.

Lasky and Roland are okay. I like that they are trying to give an AI a sense of humor, and childishness.

Palmer is pretty awful, I can't deny.

Noble team was never that great btw(besides Jorge).

No Marine has or will ever make me rage as much as Kat trying to drive a hog in Reach.
