Gears of War 3

Spoiler: Dom Dies?!

Platform: XBOX 360

In Gears of War 3, the battle rages on as Marcus Fenix and his band of brothers in Delta Squad take on the Locust and the infected Lambent. One of the main members of the Squad is Dominic “Dom” Santiago, Marcus’ best friend and right hand man. Throughout the franchise, players bonded with Dom as much as they did Marcus by finding out about Dom’s captured wife and his children who were lost.

Dom is portrayed as a kinder soul, seen at the beginning of Gears 3 tending vegetables rather than his weapons. So it was rather shocking when Dom was killed off in a suicide bombing run that left players with their jaws hanging open.
