dannyTV's Top 10 Hottest Male Video Game Characters

marioluigimuto.png

It seems that every list of hot video game characters on the internet is exclusively comprised of Lara Croft and various other pixelated boobs attached to blondes. Well the men of gaming have a lot to offer as well: bulging biceps, pecs for days, and jaw lines chiseled from Italian marble. You may recall gogoedward's coverage of the blazing hot Muto Magazine spread that finally did Mario and Luigi justice. So let's give Bayonetta and Zelda the night off and take some time to objectify the men of video games.

Here are my top ten personal favorite gaming guys.

David Wright

10 David Wright | MLB The Show '07
I realize this is kind of cheating, but professional athletes are hot, plain and simple. With so many professional athletes out there, it takes someone truly special to crack a list like this. David Wright is amongst the hottest, even if he is on the Mets. He plays third base and I'd let him go there and farther, as long as he's pitching. It's no wonder he was on the cover of an MLB game.

Yuri Hyuga

9 Yuri Hyuga | Shadow Hearts
Of all the emo, loner, anti-social heroes that JRPGs have to offer, picking the hottest was no challenge at all. Yuri Hyuga traveled the world, battled demons, god and *spoilers* incest, all in the name of the woman he loves. And *again spoilers* what's sexier than a man who is willing to sacrifice his own life to make sure his friends all have happy endings? He truly has it all with his dark, mysterious attitude, and a repressed rage that's practically bursting out of him. Plus, he's good with his fists.

Phoenix Wright

8 Phoenix Wright | Ace Attorney
What isn't sexy about lawyers? They've got power, money, and dominating attitude to lead their way through the most feared beast of all: the western legal system. As gaming's top lawyer, there's no objection that Phoenix Wright could argue my pants wright off.

Kilik

7 Kilik | Soul Calibur
I love a man who knows how to work a pole. Fighting games have left us in no short supply of gorilla juice-heads, just look at the cast of Street Fighter. You must have biceps this big to enter. Kilik, though, doesn't rely on 18 packs, hadouken, or fatalities to get the job done. His bo staff and a strong sense of justice more than meet the task of taking down evil and destroying the soul edge. The muscles certainly don't hurt, though.

Baltheir
6 Balthier | Final Fantasy 12 Squall, Cloud, Lightning; the leading men of Final Fantasy are never harsh on the eyes, but it was a supporting character in Final Fantasy XII that stole our hearts. A gunslinger more concerned with keeping his cuffs clean and making sure you know who's the leading man, Balthier hides a gentler side typically ignored by smooth talking air pirates. I need to change my panties just thinking about him.
Master Chief

5 Master Chief | Halo
Sure, we never see his face, but think about it this way -- underneath Samus Aran's helmet was a beautiful blonde babe. Using that logic, Master Chief must be a bonafide hottie underneath all that bulky gear. Besides, what could be sexier than the man you are whipping up in your imagination with a strong arm and deep voice barking out commands? He's got the moves on the battlefield, and he's probably got the moves in the bedroom.

The Bands

4 The Bands | Rockband
It is scientific fact that being a rockstar makes if you significantly sexier than the average street urchin. Thanks to the kind folks at Harmonix, you no longer need musical talent to be a sex god. All it takes is a game and about 200 dollars of electronic instruments to turn yourself into an instant love machine. Best of all, you get to decide what you look like while belting out your best Bon Jovi to the crowd in your living room.

Alistair

3 Alistair | Dragon Age
Alistair has that goofy yet adorable charm that just makes you melt. He's the kind of guy you want to bring home to mom. Rather than the bad boy we always fall for, he's a goodie-goodie who plays by the rules, and somehow he's still dripping swag. I had to play through Dragon Age twice just so I could romance him. And yes I used some dirty mods on that play through.

Nathan Drake

2 Nathan Drake | Uncharted
I know it's cliche to have him here, but the man just oozes of sex. The way he looks, moves, talks; the man is the embodiment video game sexy. Well traveled, well spoken, and well kept, I think it's a safe bet that this graphic god will be gracing our consoles for years to come. He truly is the male Lara Croft, though his gun is way bigger I'm sure.

Chris Redfield

1 Chris Redfield | Resident Evil
What can I say about this man? He's been a survivor for years and he's the badass boy next door you can't help but fall in love with. Don't take my word for it, just let his biceps do all the talking for him.

Or his leather-daddy gear:

Lmao to leading man: Lightning! I totally agree with Balthier ;) Chris totally deserved that spot and Drake was rightfully the runner-up, Thanks for the list :)

Rosa said:

Balthier, swoon.

bourgtai said:

Time for another exciting game of "Count the number of brunettes with an off-square jaw"!

And the grand tally is... seven! Seven cookie cutter leading men!

Honestly, I know I shouldn't be complaining about how in-demand guys with my exact facial features are right now, but come on. Other than MC, "the bands", and -- very narrowly -- Balthier, there's not the slightest hint of facial variation going on here.

Limeade said:

Balthier, so true. Just look at those rainbow colored rings and bracelets he's got on. ;)

Chris and Alistair are rightfully in the top spots, though I'd put Balthier as third and Nate Drake as a fourth or fifth. I found Nate much more cuter, earnest, adorably dopey and pithy in the first two games. This last one? Didn't really care for him.

Squiggy said:

Aside from Nathan Drake and Chris Redfield, this list makes it even more agonizingly apparent that the choices for male sex appeal in games is slim at best. Anime characters, a real athlete, a fully armored faceless soldier, and hipster caricatures from Rockband. This is the best we have? That kind of makes me sad.

TragicHero said:

I was kinda ho-hum on the list until you trotted out Alistair...

Whoever it was the created the "Free Love" mod, I salute you. It allowed his highness to get a much more proper deflowering. And those completely inappropriate, blood-spattered makeout sessions in the middle of the Deep Roads never failed to amuse.

Kaiden in looking quite nice in the new Mass Effect game. I'm digging the macho makeover

caracticus said:

My new virtual husband: Adam Jensen from Deus Ex Human Revolution (and don't dismiss all those sexy uniformed security personnel, until they're done stripping off their body armor)

My first virtual object of lust: Patrick galloway from undying

I agree only with Balthier and Alistair, mostly because they're not only handsome, but because they're also very charming. I really like Alistair's childish and innocent ways, and also Balthier's confidence. Snow (FFXIII) would be a nice choice from Final Fantasy too.

But generally, I prefer more burly and bearish characters. If it was me to make a list, I'd surely include Barret (FFVII - Advent Children), Marduk (Tekken) or Rock (Soulcalibur) and my dwarf warrior in Dragon Age :D . And though I never played the game, I like Sugoroku (Samurai Shodown VI).

Also, Sam Fisher should definitely be in it.

Not one sexy Bear :( I'm very sad, justice for Barry! (Resdent Evil Barry)

RDM said:

Nathan Drake needs to be my boyfriend.

PJ said:

Balthier and not Basch? Why? Not even Snow Villiers?
And where's gayfan-favourite Jin Kazama?

wohdin said:

Honestly, Balthier is like my second-least-hottest character from FF12 (the last being Vaan, of course). Although his personality has its... charms, strictly in terms of appearance he seems the type to be way too concerned about his, well, appearance, which is kind of a turn off for me. But then again, I like 'em scruffy. Which makes FF12 a smorgasbord of hotness for me.... /swoon

Charlie said:

Love this list, a very nice roundup of some hot game guys. Starkiller as portrayed by Sam Witwer from the Force Unleashed series would be very highly placed on mine.

willmiami said:

why isn't Wanka here?

Kibo said:

What about Altaïr and Ezio from the "Assassin's Creed" series? (Not Desmond, though. Especially because in the first game, the cheezy texturing makes him look like he pooped his pants.)

And then, of course, there's Psycho Mantis...

SomethingElse said:

Yay! I totally approve of Mr.Wright being on that list, wasn't expecting that at all.

but lol trademark chris.

Sami said:

I totally agree with Balthier (although he'd be #1 on my list), but I'd swap Alistair for Anders and Chris Redfield for Leon Kennedy. Yeah, I like my men blonde. ;D

Don't see the appeal of Nathan Drake, either, he just seems like your generic all-American hero you see in every action movie and tv-series out there...

Musard said:

Most of these kinda of suck. Number 1, 2 and 3 are the only good ones. :V Did you even look at a the games out there?

Nexus said:

Why do people always feel the need to fluff these kinds of articles with stupid 'jokey' answers?
Really, you couldn't come up with more hot guys so you put in some nobody sportsguy, a guy permanently in a featureless helmet and the freaking concept of a rockband?
I liked the other guys, but most of them don't make my own top 10.

And girls who like girls who like rumble packs!
