Now, since I’m not really very attracted to guys, this might be a bit hit and miss. In no particular order:
1) Basch – Final Fantasy XII
Basch is really manly. He looks like Richard Branson and Thor. He’s awesome.
2) Balthier – Final Fantasy XII
Balthier and Basch make the dream team. Add Fran and you have “Team Carnage” or should that be “Team Sexy”? Balthier is possibly the only guy who looks good in leather trousers. He also looks identical to…
3) Albus – Castlevania: Order of Ecclesia
Sure, Shinoa didn’t make it onto the other list. Castlevania is generally full of guys who look like body builders: ewww. Albus however, is rather dapper.
4) Kratos – God of War
Kratos might look angry all the time, but he is very buff. However, I will be the first to admit that I prefer this version. If you want more manly guys from games, read this comic. The star deserves a place here if he really was from a game.
5) Godot – Ace Attorney
In spite of the fact you never see his face (spoilers: except you do) Godot dresses well and has fluffy hair. That counts as “hot” right? Also, coffee.
6) Greg Kasal – Trauma Centre
This one really counts as two, because he has a twin brother – Sidney Kasal. But Sidney wears his face like a slapped arse on a wet Wednesday, so I’ll leave him. Doctors, yay.
7) Luxord – Kingdom Hearts
Luxord is the most attractive member of Organisation XIII. And he’s British, hooray!
8) Minamimoto – The World Ends With You
My favourite because he is a massive nerd. Yay. So what he kind of looks like a dog.
9) Kyle Hyde – Hotel Dusk
My personal favourite. Can’t beat an ex-cop in a suit, right?
10) Dante – Devil May Cry
This might also count as two because he also has a twin brother. Who if you search “Dante Devil May Cry 3 Topless” in Google, safe search off – you will find loads of nice pictures of them together :D I promise it won’t burn your eyes forever.
11) Cid Highwind – Final Fantasy VII
He smokes dynamite. How can you not love Cid.
12) Shinjiro Aragaki – Persona 3
My favourite character because he’s a douche and swings an axe or hammer around with no problems. Affectionatly dubbed “Beanie Guy”.
13) Joachim Valentine – Shadow Hearts
Suggested by my girlfriend is who I like to call “Superman” because he thinks he’s a super-hero and dresses accordingly. Gay Mexican Wrestler Vampires For The Win.
14) Natan – Shadow Heart: From The New World
Natan is a native American guy whose fighting style is “Gun Fu”. Yeah. Suggested by my girlfriend.
15) Xaldin – Kingdom Hearts
Suggested by my girlfriend, Xaldin is probably the most manly member of Organisation XIII and he has 6 lances. Not sure what that says about him.
16) Saïx – Kingdom Hearts
Again, suggested by girlfriend. Saïx is more for those of the furry persuasion – sure he never actually turns into a wolf but… he’s clearly a werewolf, I’ll leave it at that.
17) Xigbar – Kingdom Hearts
All this Organisation XIII talk makes me want to put Xigbar in. I like Xigbar, he’s cool. And also, kind of lame.
18) Takeharu Kirijo – Persona 3
Mitsuru’s dad, and rolling with the eyepatch theme we have Mr. Kirijo himself. Love a man in a suit.
19) Louis Cyphre – Shin Megami Tensei
Men in suits? What about Louis Cyphre himself? Sure, he’s the devil in disguise but…
20) Duke Nukem – Duke Nukem
21) Larry – Leisure Sui Larry
22) Ryo Hazuki – Shenmue
Suggested by the lovely people at Keyword Eye – Ryo is a cool guy from a game I really want to play.
23) Niko Bellic – Grand Theft Auto
Suggested by Beans, as he is rugged and manly.
24) Commander Shepard – Mass Effect
The guy version of Shepard (and the next 4 guys) was suggestd by @LeoLion who has more of an idea of sexy men than I do. He says “This is the ultimate man for any woman. You can make him look however you like, act how you want him to act, etc! He is any woman’s tool for manipulation! Also, Default shepard with the military buzz-cut is very Murr!!” – haha, AWESOME
25) Ezio – Assassin’s Creed 2
OK, I’ve got to admit, I love this guy’s outfit. “He starts off as a plucky ladies man, but then gets super serious and handsome! Kinda one of those cuddly italians you just wanna share a bowl of SpagBol with!” – wow, it’s like Lady and the Tramp, but video game style ;)
26) JC Denton – Deus Ex
“Sterile, cold, but brave and sexy! Not a guy many ladies would like, but he is the strong silent type, keeps to himself, doesn’t really react to much around him, but he will put up a fight and can do alot of neat tricks. Like, run faster, jump higher, and make espresso with his fingers!” – mmm espresso fingers :)
27) Nathan Drake – Uncharted
“The ultimate treasure hunter! He may be cool, be able to hold himself well in a gunfight and look good doing it, but he is also brainy, good at problem solving and always gets the girl! Want your american dream hunk to cover you with spanish dabloons? Well, look no further!” – Problem solver eh? I like!
28) Leon S Kennedy – Resident Evil
“Ahh, Leon! He has great hair, knows how to kill zombies and survived the Raccoon City Fallout, plus he saved a girl from the zombie hoards too! Now, he may have a crush on his Handler back at the US government, but still, he has awesome hair!!” – Great Hair is always a plus!
29) Vincent Valentine – Final Fantasy VII
After talking to Michael Auty, he pointed out that I’d forgotten Vincent Valentine. Yep.
30) Auron – Final Fantasy X
Which lead me onto Auron, my favourite red-clad Final Fantasy dude.
31) Snow – Final Fantasy XIII
Mike also suggested Snow from FFXIII, awesome choice.
32) Sephiroth – Final Fantasy VII
To quote Sarah from Whimsysaur: “I find your lack of Sephiroth disturbing. Get him on there STAT! No other game character is so beautiful. His androgony makes him elegant and powerful…and he’s just gorgeous.”
33) Axton – Borderlands 2
Also suggested by Sarah, how can you not love a guy wiuth a massive turret?
34) Marcus Fenix – Gears of War
Another addition thanks to Sarah (who knows video game guys better than I do) – Mr. Fenix and his great muscular frame.
35) Genesis – Final Fantasy VII (series)
Genesis, on par with many of the pretty boys in the Final Fantasy series, suggested by Carrana.
36) Nines Rodriguez – Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines
Nines was suggested by Lilith in the comments – who doesn’t love a proper manly vampire?
37) Max Payne – Max Payne
Suggested by someone who would rather not be named, the Title Character of an awesome series. He’s fit and has a good voice and also… addicted to pain killers (when I played…)
I know my tastes are a bit dubious, so please, add your suggestions! I will include a link to your site/twitter :)
