Honestly, I didn't like Brick and Mordecai in the original, but now I'm having a hard time deciding which of the two is my favorite character. Assumed Lilith was a badass 'cause of powers, and dunno why, but I always thought Roland was the man --- The things some people say...
I played as Brick in the first game. I liked where they went with him. A crazy berzerker butthole who likes to punch and kill people became king of the bandits. Make sense to me. --- I'm an aspiring author, and here is my blog: http://johnpaulroth.blogspot.com/
Not sure I appreciated how much they seem to have played down strength/ability wise concerning stuff like Wilhelm and getting held hostage, etc.
I mean, these guys killed The Destroyer (who I can only assume is close to or on par with The Warrior), defeated the Atlas army and General Knoxx, and slew Crawmerax (evidently cannon seeing as Mordecai mentions in one of his conversation idles to you). Not to mention all the crap they killed between all that. They basically got played out as bumbling incompetents JUST for the sake of peddling the fact that the new 4 are more powerful. I know 'plot', but still.
Other than that, I quite liked their characterisation bar Mordecai. Though that's most because I imagined him as a cocky, somewhat sarcastic snarker from his kill talk in BL1. Wasn't expecting an alcoholic has-been in BL2, but it worked, wasn't bad by any means. --- | Xbox 360: Atrabilious | PS3: Jazzy_Bones | Currently Frequenting: The Dark Souls, DmC & Dead or Alive 5 Boards.
