    Vote and explain, simple.


    I love the Decepticons because they are a great fighting force, they have an awesome backstory and they reprisent the bad guys in ways that are amazing. even though they loose in the show they are still awesome.

    Autobots. As much as the Deceps were the cooler group, I'm a good guy at heart (not that you'd know it if you talked to people I hang out with)

    Autobot. They're heroic and stand for something good, which seems to be lacking in the world we're living in these days.

    Decepticons. I stand ready to help Starscream with whatever plot he has against Megatron.

    I've always been a bigger fan of the Decepticons. But I'm a huge fan of the Autobots too.

    Much as everyone loves the bad guys (and indeed most of my favourite characters are Decepticons), common sense favours the Autobots.

    Maximals, they help protect the past and help secure the future of both Earth and Cybertron.

    Autobots/Maximals. To be evil is easy, but having morals, protecting innocence and safeguarding ideals takes will and conviction.

    Which is not to say I dislike the bad guys, my favourite characters are bad guys, but I appreciate the Autobot/Maximal ideals more.

    Split Lip hit the nail on the head.

    I've tried to live by Arhturian codes of nobility and honor. It's very difficult when immorality and dishonor surrounds you.

    ^This! I have to go with the good guys.

    That doesn't mean I don't like the 'Cons, but I prefer saving lives rather than destroying them.

    I have to agree with SLIT LIP & Ryoku. The bad guys have more fun and look cooler but, ultimately the good guys prevail however short lived. You can't have one force in control for too long. You always need a protagonist and antagonist to make for a compelling story. I have always been partial to the anti-hero. A good mix of traits from both sides. The whole self sacrifice for the sake of redemption, honor, salvation or a number of other reasons can be moving if done in the proper fashion.

    I think I am a good person in real life, but I like me some bad guys in fiction. It's like the more aggressive, callous part of my psyche doesn't get out much in real life so it's fun to exercise it with fantasy. Everybody has a dark side, good is just the ability to control it and to have empathy. The 'cons are free of restraint AND empathy. I think fantasies about being that free from restraint are healthy as long as they stay fantasies. That's why Klingons are so popular hehe. If there were real Autobots and Decepticons I definitely wouldn't be rooting for the 'cons to win, but we're talking about make-believe.

    Remember evil will always triumph over good, because good is dumb. :)

    I chose the second choice but not because I like Decepticons. Predacons are what Decepticons should have been, freedom fighters. 'Cons have hinted at fighting for their rights sometimes, but Predacons really do. And their leader named himself after the antichrist, that is badass.

    Autobot/Maximal by heart or spark.

    The good guys have always been my favourites. Reasons? They protect the innocent and ensure that evil never triumphs! Autobots and Maximals forever!

    Autobots 1000%. They love adventure and know how to have a good time and are an essentially upbeat, good hearted, and noble group. And for the most part they are the underdogs in size, strength, and firepower, but always manage to get victory by determination, wizdom, honor, teamwork, deep moral conviction that freedom is the right of all sential beings, and THE TOUCH! But you gotta love the Deceptichops, if it was'nt for them, the Autobots wouldnt have any tailpipe to kick and who better then Megatron and his gang. They're the villians you just love to hate.:)
