Top Five Hottest Male Video Game Characters

SFL Chronicle: Ah, video games and hot men: my two favorite things in the whole wide world. There aren’t enough of these lists, to be honest. You could find pages and pages and pages of hot female characters (I’ll do one of those soon enough, worry not!), but of hot male characters? Good luck finding any! It kind of sucks considering that 40% of all gamers are female and even within the male gamers, there’s still gay video game players. So let’s have a little fun with this fairly straightforward top five entry. (Dragon Age: Origins, Left 4 Dead 2, Metal Gear Solid, Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons Of Liberty, Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots, Mirror's Edge, PC, PS3, Resident Evil 5, Xbox 360)

Hmm where's Sam Fisher , Max Payne and Nathan Drake ?? :D

Was this written by a guy?!?

What the frick? I've NEVER met a girl who thought Chris Redfield was attractive. Leon S Kennedy is the heartthrob in the RE universe.

Dante from Devil May Cry is definitely up there too! Where is he at? Sam Fisher? Nathan Drake?
Pozzle  +   1450d ago
Really? I'm a girl and I'd say Chris is far better looking (not counting his monster-arms) than Leon. Eh. Different strokes for different folks, I guess.
AceofStaves  +   1450d ago
It's definitely subjective. I prefer Leon to Chris, but both are fine. But Basch fon Ronsenburg from 'FFXII' is my top pick.
newn4gguy  +   1450d ago
Chris's eyes are like touching though. That's gross.
blumatt  +   1450d ago
lol Is this another article about gay gamers liking male game protagonists?? Homosexuality is a sin, just so you guys know. An abomination to quote correctly.

How could any guy like another guy. It's just messed up. How could you NOT like women?? They're beautiful.

No, I don't hate them. I just disagree with their lifestyle. We're taught as Christians to not hate anyone. Being gay is a choice. It's not some genetic problem that makes them that way.

I'm not gay, but unlike you I don't hate people because they are gay. That's who they are. You make christianity look like a hateful religion.

blumatt, I thought you were being sarcastic.

It's kinda ironic that you have Stewie in your icon, then.

People have made being gay the "cool" thing to do
The problem with the world now is that people have tried to make it "ok" to be gay. It's become the "trendy" thing to do. It's like being gay automatically makes you have more class or style. No, the truth is it's just gross. Not only that, but if everyone were gay, the human race would cease to exist after awhile. (unless everyone were born through in vitro fertilization.)

Oh, I don't know what I'm talking about?? O really? So gay people can procreate?? I didn't know that. lol

You obviously have no idea what you're talking about and never known a gay person irl.

Back to Topic:
I think the picks were pretty on the mark, with the exception that Chris should have been #1 instead of #5. :P (Rather, anything higher than #5)

@blumatt Actually, yes. I know many gay people who have had children either invitro fertilization or by adopting the children that have been abused or neglected by so many other. All you're doing is spreading hate with your twisted logic. For every person who preaches as such, there will be a dozen more to protect them from you.

"but if everyone were gay, the human race would cease to exist after awhile."

That's such a strange argument to make. It's like saying "if everyone stopped having sex, the human race would cease to exist after awhile." It's just...never going to happen.
oldfriend86  +   1450d ago
I'm gay, but frankly I don't care about what people think. There are a lot of dicks out there, and not the kind that I like. But hey, life is too short for me to care. Bigots will be bigots.

And I thought Chris was hot, until he started to punch rocks.
gypsygib  +   1449d ago
I wish more guys were gay, more girls for me then.

Lol @ homosexuality being a choice, it's as much a choice as a person's sex is.....or maybe their gender hmmmmm interesting thought.

Anyways, to the above comments, I hate discrimination, life is short, enjoy.

All these religious people so concerned with the after-life should hurry up and get there, leave the living to people that want to spread love, not intolerance and ignorance.
powney91  +   1450d ago
I'm also gay, and I find your comment extremely disgusting. Clearly you're a very small minded person. Thankfully, it appears the majority of the gamers on here are open-minded individuals.

''Homosexuality is a sin, just so you guys know''

Ok dude, thanks a lot for this spiritual information...
powney91  +   1450d ago
With the disagrees, maybe not then...
dredgewalker  +   1450d ago
No Mario? He's such a ladies man, a lot of women always wanted him to fix their plumbing. :)
Miiikeyyy  +   1450d ago
Y U NO list Nathan Drake? ლ(ಠ益ಠლ)
heyitsmichelle  +   1450d ago
I was gonna say "what?! no nathan drake?!" but you beat me to it lol
NeoBasch  +   1450d ago
I agree with Redfield and Alistair. Everything else is variable. I do like the new Cole from inFamous 2, though.

Rashonality  +   1450d ago
talking about guys, i'm not gay but i don't mind expressing how good looking is another man.
-ummmm the Sam Fisher in convection is totally hot especially with the gray hair so he's the hottest in my book.
-Leon is more likable by teens, he's kinda dreamy.
-Solid Snake has mature charm.
-Chris has a somewhat douchey look cuz of the huge muscles and tight shirt, but facial Features wise he's cute.
-Dante has a cute face but i believe girls would conciser him a jerk for his personality.
Rettom  +   1450d ago
Are there really that many girls on N4G or something?

And gays are weird IMO
CJQNSNYC  +   1450d ago
I think Kratos and Dante are extremely hot as well..not to mention James Vega from Mass Effect 3.

Off topic....

I've always found it funny when people start talking "procreation" and "sin" whenever the subject of homosexuality is a topic of discussion. There are millions of men and women out there who CANNOT produce children no matter how hard they try...I guess their very existence is an abomination huh? Do YOU have sex strictly as a means of procreation? Yeah, sure you do...

As for sin, that subject is far too lengthy to discuss. One good rule though...if you want to call someone a sinner, it's best that you start by looking in the mirror first before you point your finger in another person's direction....something so many pseudo christians are completely incapable of doing.

Educate yourself and own your feelings and stop hiding behind your version of faith to justify the things you say. If you hate, like, love, or support something, do it because YOU feel that way, not because someone told you to.

Love is between man and woman.
KFox109  +   1449d ago
Woah! I had no idea my article had been linked on another website! Thank you so much for that!

To answer a few questions and reply to a few comments:

1. Sorry, Nathan Drake fans! I knew you would have my head on a silver platter for skipping him, but I seriously do not find any appeal in him. I'm sure you guys see something in him that I don't, but for me, he just doesn't do much.

2. Dante and Sam Fisher almost made it to the list. ALMOST. So if I ever do a follow-up list, expect to see them both there.

3. I can't help but laugh at anyone who claims that homosexuality "is an abomination" and then adds "to quote correctly" at the end. I'm sure you also "quote [the Bible] correctly" when you tell your friends to stop eating shellfish, to sell their daughters to slavery, and to not wear clothing that is made of mixed fabrics. Those too are "an abomination" according to your book of religious laws.

Thanks again everyone!
KFox109  +   1449d ago
Ah, almost forgot:

4. There's clear evidence that homosexuality is genetic. Homosexuality happens very often within nature, and I doubt most organisms without culture "choose lifestyles."

5. Even IF it wasn't natural (hypothetically speaking), it's not as if humanity follows all laws of nature. If we did, we would have throw out every single medical and technological advancement made since the beginning to time. The computer you used to type that message about homosexuality "not being genetic" is actually quite unnatural. In fact, let me take this one step further: religion is a lifestyle choice and unnatural as well if we go by the definition of "not seen in nature." You certainly don't see lions praying or zebras building mosques. It's entirely centralized to humanity, so far as we know. I'm guess that means religion must an abomination as well?

I was O.O;; when I saw Alistair.
There was a pic of Squall on the beginning of the article and he's not in the list >_<
KFox109  +   1445d ago
Sorry guys, I have a tendency to make the top banner a related character or game, but not one on the list. It takes away the fun and mystery if I reveal the list too easily. So yes, I think Squall is MEGA-HOT. You can consider him an "honorable mention." :]
