Default Re: space marine worship

A particularly cynical guy by the name of Stephane posted a rant awhile ago about the evolution of Marines from Toughness 3 powerarmor humans, to the soldiers that have superstrength, acid-spitting, and half a brain.

Of course some of it is obviously humor as he quotes people like Kid_Kyoto and Green_Jello, but other stuff such as them being the best-sold etc. is IMO more spot on. The having to tailor an army to specifically take on Marines is one major issue as it makes even those games which are victorious against them feel stale.
