Top Ten Hottest Video Game Guys

Note: This results are based on the votes and nominations of over 500 gamers.


10 – Solid Snake from the Metal Gear Series - 26 Votes

09 – Sir Auron from Final Fantasy X - 29 Votes

08 – Kurtis Trent from Tomb Raider Series - 30 Votes

07 – Vincent Valentine from Final Fantasy VII - 31 Votes

03 – Dante from Devil May Cry Series - 46 Votes

01 – Leon from Resident Evil Series - 57 Votes










10 – Solid Snake: This hunky clone first appeared in 1987 in Metal Gear as a rookie solider working for an organization called Foxhound. After appearing in 6 more Metal Gear games, Snake has snuck his way into our lady gamer hearts with his bad ass attitude and tortured past. When you think about it, Snake is the perfect man; he’s quiet, he follows orders, he’s willing to eat anything and if he dies, you can just clone him again. Perfect, really!

Games – Metal Gear, Metal Gear: Snake’s Revenge, Metal Gear Solid, Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty, Metal Gear Solid 2: Substance, Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater, Metal Gear Solid: Portable Ops, Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots, Metal Gear Solid: Integral, Metal Gear Solid: VR Missions, Metal Gear Solid: The Twin Snakes, The Document of Metal Gear Solid 2, Metal Gear Solid 3: Subsistance, and Metal Gear Solid: Digital Graphic Novel.











9 – Sir Auron: Older can be sexy! Auron first appeared in Final Fantasy X as the mysterious guide to a young Tidus. Even though his arm was damaged in a pervious fight, Auron has still able to swing his big ass sword and impress the hell out of us. Auron is another case of a man with a mysterious, tortured past that makes you just want to hold him forever. Poor Auron, I’ll make it all better.

Games – Final Fantasy X, and Kingdom Hearts 2










8 – Kurtis Trent: This pixilated hottie first appeared in Tomb Raider: Angel of Darkness as the ex-Legionnaire and adventurer that joins forces with Lara Croft to combat the Cabal and Eckhardt. Though some people weren’t too thrilled with having to play this male character as opposed to just Lara in the game, he still managed to raid our hearts. This hunky brunette is so popular, he even has his own online fan club called Kurtis Trent Estrogen Brigade, or KTEB for short, which is the reason I think Kurtis sits in this top ten list. Kurtis thanks his fan for the support! Their website can be found here at The Sanitarium.

Games – Tomb Raider: Angel of Darkness











7 – Vincent Valentine: This dark and mysterious character was a bonus character found in the Final Fantasy VII. Vincent also makes an appearance in the movie, Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children, where we really get to see him in all his CGI glory and damn does he look good. Vincent’s history is a little sketchy, but I far as I could figure he was a member of The Turks, before he was tragically turned into another of Shinra’s human experiments, but as usual we, ladies, love the guy’s with the tragic past and with a lost love mixed in with Vincent’s past, we really can’t resist this dark haired handsome.

Games – Final Fantasy VII, Final Fantasy VII: Dirge of Cerberus, Before Crisis and Ehrgeiz.









6 - Cloud: Okay, so Final Fantasy VII didn’t have the best graphics to justify Cloud as a hottie; I mean how can you get turned on by a guy with blocks for hands, and a huge spiky hair cut, but the newest version of Cloud in Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children is a definite hottie and reminds us why we fell in love with Cloud in the first place. Dark and dangerous heroes will a mysterious past will always grab the attention of the ladies. Plus you gotta love a guy who carries a huge ass sword.

Games – Final Fantasy VII, Last Order: Final Fantasy VII, Final Fantasy VII: Dirge of Cerberus, Kingdom Hearts 1 & 2, Kingdom Hearts: Chain of Memories, Final Fantasy Tactics, Itadaki Street Special, Chocobo Racing, Ehrgeiz, and Final Fantasy Technical Demo for PS3 (Rumor has it: PS3 will have a remake of Final Fantasy VII.).











5 – Sephiroth: This naughty boy first appeared in Final Fantasy VII as the evil white haired hottie that our heroes must stop from destroying the world. Seen as perhaps the best video game villain of all time, you can’t dispute the fact that Sephiroth is a totally hottie and even though he’s killed lots of people and made a lot of video gamers cry (AERITH! NO!), we can’t help but love him and his evil ways. Sephiroth makes an appearance in several other games, but he looks the best in the new movie, Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children, where he is resurrected sporting a new pair of badass wings. What is it that makes a set of wings so hot?

Games – Final Fantasy VII, Kingdom Hearts 1 &

2, Before Crisis, Itadaki Street Special, Last Order: Final Fantasy VII, and in a new game for the PSP, Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII.











4 – Squall Leonhart: Another Final Fantasy hottie on this list! What is it with our obsession with feminine men? Never mind. This wavy brown haired hottie first appeared in Final Fantasy VIII has the first graphically good-looking hero in the Final Fantasy series. Squall, sometimes known as Leon, is a student at Balamb Garden, a military academy, where he is pulled into a battle for the world against the Galbadian army and their leader, the Sorceress Edea. Squall, like most heros is moody, and pushes others away from him. Ladies, we all love a challenge and that is why the hunkie Squall is on our list.

Games – Final Fantasy VIII, and Kingdom Hearts 1 & 2











3 – Dante: Another white haired bad ass, Dante first appeared in Devil May Cry, where he plays a devil/human that must save the world from the return of Mundus, the Emperor of Demons. This is another example of a pastless hero that has worked his way into our hearts. Best of all, he has a twin brother, Virgil, and who doesn’t like the thought of twins. Dante returns for 2 amazing sequels and continues to make us swoon.

Games – Devil May Cry 1, 2 & 3, Viewtiful Joe Red Hot Rumble, Shin Megami Tensei III: Nocturne Maniacs (Director's Cut), Viewtiful Joe (PlayStation 2 version only), and Capcom Fighting Evolution.















2 – Link:
Though Link has appeared in many different incarnations in his games, we all know that this is Hyrule hero will always be the same at heart. First appearing in the 1986 game, The Legend of Zelda, Link has won us over with his tireless efforts to always save Princess Zelda, no matter the time or place. With so many Playstation and Xbox heros dominating this list, it was nice to see one Nintendo hero make it on here. I believe Link was the first video game heart throb and he will always bring us back for more.

Games – The Legend of Zelda, Zelda 2: The Adventure of Link, The Legend of Zelda: Link to the Past, The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening, The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, The Legend of Zelda: Majoria’s Mask, The Legend of Zelda: Oracle of Seasons, The Legend of Zelda: Oracle of Ages, The Legend of Zelda: Four Swords, The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker, The Legend of Zelda: Minish Cap, The Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass, The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess and Super Smash Bros. Melee.















1- Leon S. Kennedy:
This hunk first appeared in Resident Evil 2 as a Raccoon City Police Officer trying to survive the zombie attack and escape the city before it gets nuked. He later made another appearance as the hero hired to rescue the president’s daughter in Resident Evil 4.This hunk has it all: martial art skills, firearm training and a cool bomber jacket.Plus you gotta love a man who knows how to take out a zombie in one shot.

Games – Resident Evil 2, 4 and a non-continuity spin-off, Resident Evil Gaiden

I'm amazed the Prince of Persia didnt make this list...

Melissa Russell said...

. . . Auron's arm wasn't damaged. o.O

Anonymous said...

Oh my goodness, Leon, hell yes!

Faith said...

I'm only going to post this one more time....

If you played the game, you would know that he does hurt his arm when he tries to attack Lady Yunalesca during his first pilgrimage to Zanarkand with Lord Braska. That is why he has it in a sling type thing for most of the time. If you played the game, you would have seen the flashback where this happens. I realize he does still use it, but it is hurt to a certain degree.

Paul said...

What, no Duke Nukem?

Kio said...

Of all the Final Fantasy VII guys that made the cut... you left out Reno?! How could you?! *sobs*

Anonymous said...

How the hell could you leave out Gordon Freeman of Halflife fame? Seriously, that man is gorgeous AND brilliant. What more could you want?

I'm also rather partial to the various heros of the adventure game genre, particularly Guybrush Threepwood, who bears a striking resemblence to Orlando Bloom's character in Pirates of the Caribbean, and Roger Wilco, just because he's awesome. Neither of those fine gentlemen hold a candle to Gordon Freeman, but they can still beat those Final Fantasy girls any day ;)

Did Kurtis die in the end? I mean, you must have seen the ending of TR:AoD! I still laugh at his name though he is hot. I can't wait for Devil May Cry 4 (^_^!!!) I wonder how many crazy fangirls have claimed these guys as their own? The world will never know.

Anonymous said...

i think auron should be out and tidus should be in
eww aurons all old

Anonymous said...

I believe a character from an older Final Fantasy [IV] deserves a mention: Edward "Edge" Geraldine. I mean this guy is a ninja, knows magic, definitely knows how to treat the ladies, is wonderfully arrogant and led by his emotions, and not to mention a very handsome light-haired PRINCE who is not above something petty like stealing!

We all have fantasized about bad boys, royalty, AND extremely pretty men. Edge is all this and more in one hot litte package!

Anonymous said...

Call me crazy.... but this list is about 60% good, 20% alright, and 20% absolute garbage. The good isn't even that spectacular. Caca.

Tsabp Tavoc said...

Call me crazy... but this list is about 45% good, 30% alright, and 25% absolute garbage. Even the good isn't really all that spectacular. I mean come on, Lean S. Kennedy is number 1?

And why is Kurtis Trent even on here? Who cares about his fanclub. Every modestly attractive video game character is going to have fanarts, galleries, and shrines dedicated to them.

And is Sir Auron really the most attractive character we could think up from Final Fantasy X? A badass? Yeah, he's definately a badass. Interesting character overall? Yes, better than Wakka, that's for sure. Completely freaking cool in game as well as a strong melee character overall? Yes.
But sexy?
Come on. I'm surprised I didn't run into the King of all Cosmos on here or something. Yeah, they're all hot, mostly, but for the most part NOT top ten hottest video game boys material.

Anonymous said...

Lol...
Leon Scott Kennedy? I suppose =P
He is cute.

Anonymous said...

Lot of hott guys made the list, But Cloud should not only be number #1 but should be named hottest anime guy of all time!!

Anonymous said...

Very nice top ten! Leon definetly deserves the number one spot- he's glorious ^_^

Anonymous said...

wtf? link? how would chicks think link is hot?

Anonymous said...

oh gosh... vincent, dante, Leon... yum..

Anonymous said...

Tsabp Tavoc: Kurtis Trent is on there because he got voted on. If you give such a damn, you should have been there to vote. Your fault he's on there. :P

Anonymous said...

This is a pretty good list, and leon is definently # 1. But i'd probably put cloud 2nd and vincent 3rd. personally i dont get the link thing, the Zelda games are awsome, but link???

Lovely Loathing said...

#1 should be cloud then sephiroth @ #2 Then # 3 should be Vincent, And # 4 should definately be squall

Anonymous said...

What? Link should be #1 here! He's so scrupmtious and hott!!!

Anonymous said...

Kurtis Trent Estrogen Brigade has over 5000 members all over the Internet. Owe them, and everyone else some respect!

I think he should be at number 1. He's a very passionate, deep guy. His eyes dont lie. He may be pixels, but he's the one that got THE Lara Croft on the edge of her patience...

Anonymous said...

Why the HECK isn't Dante #1?! That picture doesn't do him justice at all! And speaking of Vergil, he's super sexy, too! Much sexier than that Kurtis Trent guy... ugh...

"Poor Auron, I'll make it all better" LOL! Isn't it odd how we think that feminine guys with tortured pasts are hot? hee hee! I want to hold them ALL forever!!

Mark said...

As a guy, I gotta note here that the characters get more and more effeminate as the list goes down, Solid Snake, THE single manliest-man ever! going down towards Link, who personally is my favourite game character ever, always like the Zelda games, but slightly feminine in appearance and Leon too. Seriously though, some awesome choices, not surprised to see more Final Fantasy character than any other tho lol ^_^

Anonymous said...

WTF?! I'm making MY own list of
top ten hottest guys. :P
1. Cloud Strifer (Admit it, in Final Fantasy Advent Children he drove us crazy and we drowned ourselves with
drool!)
2. Tidus ( A true hottie... with a
whiny voice)
3. Leon Kennedy (He's okay.. but
to muscular and manly and friggin'
annoying for me)
4. Squall Leonheart (WHAT A BRAVE
HOTTIE! Got a scar for life by a
fag and still kicks his ass! But too emo and moody)

bka
bla
basha
blah

10 AND 10. LINK AND KURTIS TO BE
KICKED OUT STRAIGHT AWAY. TWO SUCH
ASSES I CRY AT THE SIGHT OF THEM!
A PIXELY UGLY DUDE AND A FAIRY?!

Anonymous said...

Ok being a mature straight male I can say that this list is probably for the most part pretty accurate considering the valid points made about each character, however, how could you omit Agent 47? I mean especially from blood money. Most of these characters can be ranged from their 20's to early 30's but Agent 47 being almost fiftyish I can't belive he did'nt make it. Probably one of the most charismatic, well dressed well groomed male characters in my opinion who can rock the bald head.

Anonymous said...

...Clearly, someone hasn't played their Final Fantasy enough...

Where's Zidane? He was adorable and, in my opinion, the best Final Fantasy protagonist. Sue me.

But no one played IX. It's okay.

Anonymous said...

If I had to make a list...
(UPDATED)

1. Dante - silver hair clashes great with red - the color of love
2. Cloud Strife - spikey-headed blonde bombshell with a big sword
3. Leon S. Kennedy - this guy knows how to protect a lady & with style
4. Vincent Valentine - dark and mysterious, nuff said
5. Ken Masters - he's got all the right moves
6. Squall Leonhart - who doesn't love a well-placed scar?
7. Richter Belmont - who says chivalry is dead?
8. Terry Bogard - a howling wolf with a insatiable appetite
9. Benimaru Nikaido - pretty as a petal but stings like a rose's thorn
10. Jin Kazama - unleashing his inner demons for the angel inside

List runnerups:
Ryo Sakazaki, Vega, Raphael & Siegfried (Soul Calibur),
Solid Snake, Fox McCloud (foxy), Mario (best mustache since Tom Selleck), Agent 47 (bald and beautiful)

Anonymous said...

Leon S. Kennedy as #1? Oh, yes, I approve. RAWR! Leon is teh secks. <3

Anonymous said...

he he. I totally agree with this list. It's nice to know I'm not the only girl with a crush on a Video Game hunk. ;-)

sunom said...

I love Leon Scott Kennedy.HE's hot and cute and I lik his hairstyle.this is for u leon if u are reading this 'marry me'.But u r just a fictional character.That suks.I also like Chris Redfield of resident evil remake, resident evil5, resident evil code:veronica and r.e umberella chronicles.BUT he is not here.

Maria-Eulalia The Sephiroth Ho said...

Either Sephiroth or Dante should have been 1st for me. SEPHIROTH IS MY DREAM MAN! Too bad he isn't real nor will I be able to find a mysterious,intelligent and passionate man with long hair and such pretty eyes anywhere on Earth,seemingly.

Faith said...

2 years later and people are still flocking to check out my list. The boys of gaming are still hot as ever.

Maybe I need to do a new list soon.

ScorpionFan said...

SCORPION!!!!!!! <3 HE'S HOTTER THEN HELL XD

Agnes said...

Max Payne deserves to be on this list! =]

Scout said...

I completely agree with Leon being first, though I wouldn't have complained if Link won instead. It's a shame that a better picture of Link wasn't used for this. This one doesn't do him justice at all. I'm personally partial towards his concept art in TP and SCII (Heh, OoT Link is drawn better for this game than he is for his own). Though Brawl screens shouldn't be counted out either...

Honestly, the people saying Link isn't hot must have never seen a picture of him besides the one on this page.

Anonymous said...

YEAH! Leon!! XD XD XD He's awesomely hot!!

Look at this picture and say that he isn't HOT.

HE'S LIKE, 1000 YEARS OLD!!!!! technically though, he is like 1000 years old cuz in FFX he goes back and forth through time!!! and no offense, but, i serioulsy do think that this list is jacked up. very.

horse100 said...

Girls...
I've played a few games in my life
but...
Leon IS NOT THAT HOT!!!
Snake is a cherry on top of the sundae.
I mean that there is another blonde that is waaaay hotter than Leon.

Anonymous said...

Snake gets my vote everytime ;)

although i must say, Big Boss is my ultimate fantasy man *drools*

Anonymous said...

Whaaaat?!
No Zack Fair? What about Tseng of the Turks? Tidus? Vaan? Sora? Riku? ...Master Chief?! (I can go on forever.)
Well, I'm glad Vince and Cloud(fyi, he appears in Crisis Core) made the list, as well as the others.
Next time, go for Top 50!!!

Anonymous said...

Heck yes, Link! XD

Anonymous said...

Two words: Alex Shepherd, from Silent Hill Homecoming. He was just something gorgeous. Plus wtf is Link doing on there?!?

Anonymous said...

Hey, Solid Snake was ought to be the first! Or at least the second! And Link, the 2nd place!? Puh-lease! ><

Anonymous said...

For some reason all these polls keep leaving out the hottest guy ever. Has no one played Xenosaga? Albedo is so hot, he can even make dismemberment look good :) He can search me for the Y-Data anytime.

Daniw de Leon said...

How could you not include Gordon Freeman? That man reeks sex appeal, seriously.

Casino said...

nice detail...like it

Connie said...

AHHH!!!!

Dante the son of sparda

Leon Scott Kennedy <3

[im a chick]

Anonymous said...

ooh, I can't believe this list doesn't includi Ezio Auditore Da Firenzo from Assassins Creed 2!

Faith said...

@ Anonymous who suggested Ezio

That's because it was written in 2006 when the AC 2 wasn't even thought of. Thanks for coming out.

Cronyne said...

Ugh, what a predictable list.

Anonymous said...

Where is Nick from Left 4 Dead 2? And Frank from Dead Rising?

Anonymous said...

I'd have to say Alec Mason from Red Faction Guerilla. He's my #1 choice.

Anonymous said...

Alistair from Dragon Age. Love of my gaming life.

Also Harry Flynn.

Anonymous said...

Dude, Auron is so sexy!!!!! He should be number #1!!!!! I have other people that I wanted, like Kakashi, Tobi, L, Demyx, Axel, Xigbar and Luxord. But Auron beats them all!!! Auron is so awsome and all others appozing, I have nothing to say to you. Good day.

Anonymous said...

I vote for John Marston

Anonymous said...

Oooooh. Nice list. All the FF series guys here AND Leon are on my "I'd-tap-that" list. Yum.

Violent Idiot said...

Holy shoot. Link and Leon can wet my panties any day of the week. They're just so goddamn sexy. Dante in the manga is frigging hot too. I thought Raiden instead of Snake would make it somewhere though. Not that I like Raiden.

Rose said...

No.. NO. What is with this list?! D=

My top ten list:
1. Cloud Strife
2. Cloud Strife
3. Cloud Strife
4. Cloud Strife
5. Cloud Strife
6. Cloud Strife
7. Cloud Strife
8. Cloud Strife
9. Cloud Strife
10. Cloud Strife

CLOUD STRIFE FOREVER. I LOVE HIM!!! Why is he number 6?! Oh well.. 6 is my lucky number. =P

LOVE YOU, CLOUD. xxx

where is Axel from Kingdom Hearts?!?!

Alexandra Jamie said...

:D Dante!! dayum I'm gettin all flustered ;) he is one sexy ass character! yummy

Coo said...

This list has some pretty sweet guys on it, but none of them's my favorite. Norman Jayden from Heavy Rain has to take the cake for hottest video game character, in my book.

Alistair from Dragon Age is probably the second hottest.

Neither of them are on this list. I am saddened. :(

Anonymous said...

Where is Nathan Drake?
Sad very sad.

Darby said...

Ladies, as a straight preppy male I can't deny I have great taste in men. What about Albert Wesker? What can be more attractive than a handsome, well educated, scientist that runs his own mega corporation? Ah and the stunning Chris Redfield from re 5? Those biceps? My god!

Anonymous said...

I'm agreeing with Darby. Where the hell is Redfield and Wesker?! They are like gods! Do you see those rippling biceps on those men? And also, where the hell is Virgil? I think he's sexier than Dante personally, but eh their twins so what can you do? Anyways I feel as if this list should be extended a bit more.

Malina said...

Definitively Snake is the hottest! He's the only one who looks like a real man and doesn't have the "plastic-barbie-doll" face...plus he's intelligent and has a subtle sense of humor which is very sexy too...Snake's my choice ;)

Anonymous said...

i agree leon is the sexiest guy ever i love his walk it gets hotter every second omfg and his eyes and hair and look at those muscules holy snap man i also like wesker and chris redfield if leon was real id be all over him!! X) leon has a hot name too!!!!

Breeze said...

Oh nice. I'm glad Squall and Cloud are on the list. Those two are my absolute favorite. They're so HOT. ;D

Who doesn't love a guy with a mysterious past? lol.

Anonymous said...

What?! Where's Riku and Axel from Kingdom Hearts I and II??? Shit, guys... Sexy at its finest.

Letiel said...

Oh darn. I was looking for Drake from Uncharted and Ezio Auditore da Firenze from Assassin's Creed!
