As there was so much interest on my post about my secret crushes on female video game characters, and because it was specifically requested, I present my male video game character crushes (in no particular order).
Sephiroth (Final Fantasy VII)
My first ever video game boy crush. The hair. The sword. The outfit. Just all kinds of hotness. Plus chicks always dig a bad guy! And don’t forget, he had his own awesome operatic villain music.
Kratos (God of War series)
He’s not really that attractive a guy despite his impressive muscles, but there’s just something about him that would make me totally okay with him throwing me over his shoulder and taking me back to his lair to have his wicked way with me. And then stride off into the night to kill yet another god. Swoon.
Alistair (Dragon Age)
I don’t really need to say because I’ve said it all so much better in a previous post. Oh, Alistair, our love will burn eternal even if you married someone else (at least in my run through of the game!)
It wasn’t until the first time he unleashed his fae ability that I saw him for the phwoar-worthy guy he was. It’s been a while since I played that game, but I haven’t forgotten the elevated heartbeat at the sight of his bare chest and lightning eyes! You know what I mean, girls. And if you don’t, play the game INSTANTLY.
Nathan Drake (Drake’s Fortune series)
He’s witty, good with a weapon, and wears his jeans really well. Also, he’s like the boy version of Lara Croft, and you know how I feel about her! Nate also looks good dirty. Nothing like a blood-stained t-shirt and dirt on your face to make a girl’s loins quiver! Just ask fans (i.e., me) of the explosion scene at the end of Con Air. Best Nicholas Cage scene, ever!
Ezio / Altair (Assassin’s Creed)
My preference has always been Altair, but recently I’ve come to quite enjoy Ezio’s company, especially as he got older and more rugged looking. Essentially they are the same guy in looks, as is Desmond, but I don’t go much on old Des. His outfit is too boring. I quite like a man in a hood and cape, it seems. Also, how can you go past someone both pretty and agile, vengeful and resourceful? Plus he was really sweet (if a bit stalkery at times) with Cristina.
Snow (Final Fantasy XIII)
The trench coat, the beanie, the unkempt blonde hair, the clean-shaven chest. Oh and don’t forget the Shiva motorcycle. Why are you with that boring little child-like Serah, Snow? You need a real lady! Ditch the kid, and get with someone more your style – maybe Fang?
