Nominations for the Hottest Game Industry Guys.

Cliffy B asked me to post this picture - its his favorite.

Not to long ago, I ran a webpoll to find a Top Ten Hottest Video Game Guy Characters and I found there was a huge response.

When trying to get the official list posted over at different gaming sites, I received an email from the editor of Gamespy.com, Will Tuttle, in which he asked if he was included in the list. (He thought the list was for video game industry guys) This gave me an idea; why not do a list of the Hottest Video Game Industry Guys. I mean there are some hotties out there and how could you not drool over the guys that bring us the best means of entertainment possible.

Below are the names, bios, and pictures of the nominated guys.

Check out the guy and then vote on the webpoll on the sidebar. I will open up the polls each day to allow for extra voting.

The polls will be open till next Wednesday.

To the guys listed amongst the nominated: I hope this little webpoll doesn't upset or insult you in any way. I am a huge fan of each and every guy on this list and I have the utmost respect for your work in the industry. But that doesn't mean I can't stare at your butt as you walk by. :)
