Here's an old post I made on the subject,
I always found that Doomguy, in all of his rugged Space Marine glory, did have a certain element of elegance, graciousness, aplomb, and stiff upper lip.
I mean, take a look at this screenshot:
The fluid, nonchalant style with which Doomguy reloads the shotgun after dispatching an adversary, while at the same time keeping a serious face, full of aplomb, as if nothing happened, is also admirable. And let's not even mention the touch of elegance afforded by his gloved hands and the dainty yet firm grip with which he clasps the shotgun's fore-end.
This, my fellow gentlemen, is class.
Too bad that mere screenshots don't capture the graceful, swinging motion with which he trains his Weapon, only to aim forward and shoot true in the face of the enemy, when required, again, with all the aplomb and detachment due of a man who's only performing his duty.
Even in such a complex situation, his aim remains true, his hand steady, and his face completely straight. The elegance with which he's able to store immense quantities of ammo without ruining his elegant appearance and contenance is also admirable, the traits of a great organizer.
For that, my friends, I firmly believe that Doomguy is the finest example of a Battle Butler, if there has ever been one.
