Gaming's famous moustached men: shaved

What links all great men through history? The insatiable pursuit of power? An unwillingness to compromise? Snappy dress sense? Nah, it’s a good old tache, of course. Inspired by the recent clean shaven antics of Final Fantasy big cheese Hironobu Sakaguchi and Adolf Hitler, we’ve decided to shave the soup strainers off some of our favourite games characters.

Warning: the following images may shock and appal the hairy-faced among you.

Gordon Freeman



Niko Bellic

Sergeant Johnson


Chilling, eh? We apologise for what we've just inflicted upon you.

    The Mario picture just looks plain wrong.

    Zangief looks bad-ass! Of course, as a guy who rocks facial hair without a 'stache, maybe I'm biased.
  • Hobojedi - March 19, 2010 12:13 a.m.

    Why do you think they all grew mustaches? SO THEY WOULDN'T LOOK LIKE THIS
  • Cyberninja - March 18, 2010 10:13 p.m.

    my eyes i hope they grow back
  • teke367 - March 18, 2010 9:26 p.m.

    So instead of a nerd, Freeman is some hipster d-bag?
  • crisdace - March 18, 2010 9:16 p.m.

    I must say,Victor Sullivan got ripped off!
  • philipshaw - March 18, 2010 9:14 p.m.

    Great article and Mario looks weird without the moustache
  • Evans05 - March 18, 2010 8:34 p.m.

    We'll i can offically say, Mario without a mustache is one of the most scariest things i've ever seen lol
  • DriveShaft - March 18, 2010 6:58 p.m.

    Mario was not meant to live without moustache O_O

    How's Captain Price not here? He's known for rocking the Handlebar. Or was GamesRadar worried that he'd step out of Modern Warfare and kill them all for messing w/ his 'stach?
  • Xeacons - March 18, 2010 3:40 p.m.

    Niko and Mario don't look half bad. But GOD GORDON! LOOSE THE BEARD IF YOU TAKE OFF THE MUSTACHE!!! I can't stand that! Beards without mustaches! Never made any sense to me. He looks retarded. And I don't mean that in an insulting way; he looks mentally handicapped, like he just lost 150 IQ points!
  • dslayer99 - March 18, 2010 3:02 p.m.

    lol i agree with eenieboy!
  • SoutheastSam - March 18, 2010 2:44 p.m.

    Gordon is the only one that actually affects the character. It made me sad
  • AuthorityFigure - March 18, 2010 11:19 a.m.

    Didn't realise Niko even had a 'stauche till now.
  • AlexMercer1337 - March 18, 2010 10:17 a.m.

    Niko looked more like a church saint than a criminal lord in that pic lol
  • QWERTYCommander - March 18, 2010 8:42 a.m.

    I cannot unsee this...
