The top 10 most 'fancied' game characters

I don't normally pay much attention to polls conducted for the sole purpose of generating self-promotion, but this one from is kind of interesting, so what the hell.

The site asked over 1400 men to look at a selection of images of female game characters and pick out the ones they were most attracted to. This is how the top 10 turned out:

1. Rubi Malone (WET)
2. Jill Valentine (Resident Evil)
3. Lara Croft (Tomb Raider)
4. Chloe Frazer (Uncharted)
5. Sheva Alomar (Resident Evil)
6. Lighting (Final Fantasy)
7. Elena Fisher (Uncharted)
8. Farah (Prince of Persia)
9. Bayonetta (Bayonetta)
10. Tifa Lockhart (Final Fantasy)

In case you're not familiar with her game, this is what Rubi Malone looks like:

The site did the same study with women. Nearly a 1000 of them. This is how the ladies ranked the men:

1. Nathan Drake (Uncharted)
2. The Prince (Prince of Persia)
3. Leon Kennedy (Resident Evil)
4. Sam Fisher (Splinter Cell)
5. Jin Kazama (Tekken)
6. Desmond Miles (Assassin's Creed)
7. Chris Redfield (Resident Evil)
8. Max Payne (Max Payne)
9. Squall Leonhart (Final Fantasy)
10. Solid Snake (Metal Gear Solid)

Here's a picture of Nathan Drake, just to be fair:

And before you say that being attracted to a games character is tragic, please don't forget this. Thanks.

    I vote for Jill in Resident evil I did not think we had the technology to make a virtual ass that perfect I want to frame it on my wall.

    I thought Vanille from FF13 was sorta cute... except for the accent.
  • CH3BURASHKA - May 8, 2010 7:17 p.m.

    Wow, I didn't expect Max Payne to make the list, though he most definitely deserves it.
  • linkganon - May 8, 2010 6:21 p.m.

    take that raiden, you're not even on the list you dumb shit, and the funny part is he's intended for women... oh wait i forgot, they must have mistaken him for a woman just like president johnson did when he grabbed raiden's crotch and said "you're a man?" in metal gear solid 2.

    @GR Eric Bratcher - "Not one blonde among the ladies?" I'm not a gentleman, so I don't prefer blonds, but Jill Valentine did go blond for some (no) reason in RE5. Also there's Elena from Uncharted in the list as well. Though I prefer Chloe myself. Unless you're inferring that Elena and Jill aren't natural blonds.
  • Ravenbom - May 8, 2010 7:27 a.m.

    I wonder how women would rate game voices, because Nolan North is on that list twice.
  • TanookiMan - May 8, 2010 7:20 a.m.

    Yeah, I was hoping to see Alyx on there too...nothing hotter than blasting head crabs :)
  • Elemental - May 8, 2010 3:08 a.m.

    Soul Calibur is the number 1 game for hot game chicks. Ivy, Taki, Sophitia or Tira. Ok so in game they look like dolls, but damn hot dolls all the same...
  • JamesT - May 8, 2010 3:04 a.m.

    Agree with Vitoruss1.
  • NearNRiver - May 8, 2010 2:40 a.m.

    I would say GLaDOS (From A-game-that-everyone-should-know) and Aegis (From Persona 3), but I guess I'm just odd and into AI...
  • thephntm - May 7, 2010 11:46 p.m.

    Whaaaaa?! No Samus Aran? The survey was rigged!
  • Jacko415 - May 7, 2010 11:08 p.m.

    No Alyx Vance?
  • EricBratcher - May 7, 2010 10:42 p.m.

    Not one blonde among the ladies? I call BS. I'd also suspect no Dead or Alive characters were shown. We're obviously being superficial here, and they're about as superficially complete as they come. Also: what suicidali said about Cammy.
  • TheJackOfHearts - May 7, 2010 10:17 p.m.

    Can't believe Chun-Li isn't on there.
  • paganpoet - May 7, 2010 9:52 p.m.

    @Skykid, I don't think they're falling out of favor, people still remember them fondly. It's's hard to fancy a sprite 25 pixels tall. And Amano's artwork, while stylish and iconic, is also hard to fancy.
  • Skykid - May 7, 2010 9:01 p.m.

    Shows that the retro Final Fantasy games are starting to fall out of favor. Not suprised that the ladies love Nathan Drake. He's a modern Indiana Jones, without the crappy sidekicks; but there are still the dumb villans, and Indy movies are chock full of 'em.
  • pinoklin - May 7, 2010 8:15 p.m.

    the game characters that i have fancied the most have been: 3)rikku 2)vanille 1)Aurica (from Ar Tonelico) idk maybe i have a weird sexual attraction towards most jrpg women lol. ReCptcha: clump in
  • AgentHonor - May 7, 2010 8:09 p.m.

    Im kinda shocked the most well rounded and realistic characters arent at the top (Chloe and Elena). Kinda sad too theres no Naomi Hunter.
  • Xplosive59 - May 7, 2010 7:58 p.m.

    good to tifa made this list, but its still a pretty bad list
  • paganpoet - May 7, 2010 7:57 p.m.

    Well, gay male here (don't we get to vote on polls like this???) and have to say I quite agree with the women's choices. ESPECIALLY Chris Redfield...sure his pecs and biceps may be a little out of control, but no more than the breasts on Tifa or Lara Croft!
