With Valentine's Day fast approaching, what better way to celebrate love and affection for men the world over than to compose a list of the ten sexiest male characters in video games! Whether they are kicking enemy butt or simply just there for the eye candy, I believe these are the hottest leading men that games have to offer. Gents (and ladies), enjoy.
You might criticize me on this pick, but I care not. There's something sensual about the way this blind fifty-year old slithers in battle, and that spiked codpiece? Come on now. He can't sit still...what does that say about other, shall we say...abilities? As he flawlessly slices and dices any opponent who dares stand in his way, I can't help but think about the man he used to be before the insanity and before the outlandish costumes. Okay, I'll be honest. I'm thinking about him at present too.
No, I'm not into older men. Would you kindly put that notion out of your head? I can't help that I found the entire meeting with the king of the undersea city a bit sexier than it should have been...except for the end of said meeting. I'm sure if I had met him in a different light, as a female, I would have been met with an intelligent, debonair, ambitious man with a lot on his mind and a lot to share with me. Perhaps disaster could have been avoided...and perhaps I'd be Lady Ryan of Rapture right now.
This master thief may be a taffer, but he's fine in my book. If he could manage to find his way into my house without alerting me or resorting to using water arrows to douse my...lightbulbs..., then I'd certainly take him out for a nice dinner. Then again, if he came up to me and asked me out like a normal person, I'd likely say yes as well.
(Duke Nukem Series)
Even though I hail to another king already (one of Sam Raimi's ideas), Duke's been with me since I was old enough to hop on the PC and play. Sexist? Quite possibly. Call him a pig, but I'd liken my attraction to that of Rocky from Dr. Frank-N-Furter -- on looks alone. What's behind the glasses? Possibly eyes that shoot laser beams of pure awesome. He's got balls of steel...come on. What more do you need?
Akihiko's maturity, level head in a crisis, and smooth disposition lead me to continue bringing him along on my jaunts to Tartarus even when he was a little too underleveled for the good of my party. That good boy grin, the fact that crowds of women annoy him, and his snow-white hair kept me leaving Yukari along with the other rejected members of my party. I know you feel responsible for Miki's death, Sempai, but I'm here for you. I am!
