Choosing the top 10 hottest video game chicks is not only a hard thing to do, I think its darn near impossible, however, I do have a few choice picks that I would like to mention though. These are ANY women in ANY game on ANY gaming console available to man! Obviously some of these are a given like that of Lara Croft and others? Not so much. I’m not even going to even bother listing these in chronological order because that is simple madness! Video games are most likely tailored to attract boys or the male genre in general. By the video game companies catering to these “men” they have created several different female characters that make these boys actually feel that its okay to play a female role just because she’s a hottie.
Alright so I don’t agree with the sexism but considering it is a game and it isn’t a real person, these video game companies have made even me (a female) play some of these games and think “wow she really is attractive.” Okay so it’s a dumb thing to think I mean these are “characters” but still, it’s a pretty amazing feat to have people drooling over your cartoony self! On to the list, shall we?
Lara Croft – I fought the urge to put this one even on the list but, she is on so many other lists, I had to do it. Okay, we all know Lara’s story and I presume most of you are well-acquainted with the ever popular Tomb Raider video game series. However, there are some fascinating facts linked to this character, which some of you may not be aware of. Before Lara’s origination, Core Design had to come up with a fashionable lead role for their game and several ideas were thrown around. The purpose was to make a “real-time cinematic game” and to appeal to the ultramodern gamer. Although several might differ, Lara is still one of the sexiest video game heroines ever created!
Rayne – aka BloodRayne – In addition to having a killer physical structure, BloodRayne is known for her cutthroat and predatory nature. She was born after her mom was assaulted by her vampire father (which would account for her predatory). Rayne treats some of her foes brutally and without mercy. Sometimes she envelops her legs around them and sinks her teeth into their necks to feast on their blood.
Farah – Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time – When Ubisoft renewed the Prince of Persia character with Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time, a new hot icon was born – a nimble young lady, named Farah. This extremely attractive maidenly specimen is the Maharajah’s daughter and often assists the Prince in his death-defying travels. Whenever he’s stuck some place, Farah is usually there to provide a solution.
Joanna Dark (Perfect Dark Series) – Joanna Dark is the legendary protagonist of the Perfect Dark video game franchise formulated by Rare. In the games, Dark acts as an elite group mercenary who specializes in industrialized espionage. She is working for the Carrington Institute, where she is given the code name “Perfect Dark” in honor of her flawless performance in conditioning trials. Her real name is derived from Jeanne d’Arc (Joan of Arc).
Alice from Resident Evil – A virus has escaped in a classified facility called “The Hive,” turning the faculty into ravenous zombies and releasing the mutated Lab “Animals” that they were studying. The complex computer shuts down the base to prevent transmission. The parent corporation sends in elite armed services unit, where they encounter Alice, who is suffering from amnesia due to exposure to nerve gas. The military team must shut down the computing device and get out, contending past zombies, mutants, and the computer itself, before the virus escapes and infects the rest of the world. Alice must also come to terms with her slowly-returning memories.
Lightning from Final Fantasy – Character designer Tetsuya Nomura was asked to produce a “female version of Cloud Strife from Final Fantasy VII”. During development, he has described her as “not very feminine”. Lightning is a young woman with strawberry-blond hair. She is given an anonymous task by a Crystal. Lightning wields a gun-sword, which can also manipulate gravitation. Lightning is only a codename and her real given name was said to be revealed somewhere with the game’s plot. There is a speculation that it might depend on what the player will name her.
Shahdee (Prince of Persia: The Warrior Within) – is a subordinate of the Empress of Time, appearing scantily dressed with a black, short haircut. She is charged with the duty of seeing that the Prince does not attain the Island of Time. Shahdee departs with the cognition that the Empress will kill her if she fails in this duty, demonstrating that she’ll do everything in her power to ensure the Prince does not make his destination.
Kasumi – also known as “the Kunoichi of Destiny”, is a female ninja skilled in the Mugen Tenshin Style of Ninjutsu. She was to become the 18th Master of the Mugen Tenshin Ninja Clan, but ran away in order to enter the Dead or Alive tournament. There, she hoped to defeat Raidou, the man responsible for crippling her brother Hayate. By leaving the secretive ninja clan, she became a nukenin (runaway shinobi). This means that she must live on the run from her former comrades every day as they seek to silence the “traitorous” Kasumi. Eventually, Kasumi kills Raidou and wins the tournament. She also plays on DOA 2, 3, 4, Volleyball, and DOA Xtreme 2!
Rikku from Final Fantasy – is a playable character in the PlayStation 2 games Final Fantasy X and most notably in Final Fantasy X-2.

She is the daughter of Al Bhed leader Cid, the younger sister of Brother, and younger cousin of Yuna, whom she calls “Yunie”. She speaks English fluently, is mechanically-minded, makes eccentric gestures, and has a tendency to use humor in tense situations.
