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!
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.

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.

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.

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.

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?

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
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.

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.

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.
