Sexiest Female Video Game Characters Ever
Video games have always been a way to go explore all sorts of worlds that could only otherwise be imagined in our wildest dreams.
With a wealth of video games being released each month, it’s easy for some to get lost in the mix, regardless of how good they may be, and at one point curvy, well-endowed women were used to sell games in the form of sexy and strong female lead characters.
One might think that it was a gimmick, but these games held their own, and in addition to the pretty, computer generated faces — from the 8-bit days of Nintendo’s Samus (Metroid) to the over-inflated Lara Croft (Tomb Raider) — these leading ladies of video games have stood the test of time, with many being adapted for the silver screen and others ported over to comics and novels.
The sexy looks of several of these women won the hearts of many gamers both male and female, as can be seen at comic conventions around the world, with women gamers dressing up (cosplaying) as there heroines
Strong and bold looks won many hearts and are considered some of the hottest female videogame characters.
Lara Croft – Tomb Raider series
Alison Carroll was named the model for the character in 2008 for the release of Tomb Raider Underworld.
One of the hottest video characters of all time, this sexy character was portrayed as strong, intelligent and risk taking. She was not only loved by men around the globe but by women as well. With the movies based on the videogame, Lara Croft has gained even more recognition. She was generally seen wearing a white camisole and shorts, which complimented her well toned, athletic frame.
Karima McAdams played Lara Croft in a documentary about Tomb Raider (the game) and the character.
Angelina Jolie played Lara Croft in both Tomb Raider feature films.
Chun-Li – Street Fighter series
The story of Chun-Li revolves around her trying to avenge her father’s death. Her clothing has been changed several times but her signature brown tights and combat boots stayed.
With strong and toned body and her impeccable personality, many guys sure have the hots for her. She has been ranked in top 10 lists of hottest female video game characters several times.

Ming-Na played Chun-Li in the first Street Fighter movie. Jean-Claude Van Damme and Raul Julia starred.
Samus Aran – Metroid series
When Samus Aran, the metal-bodied character from Nintendo’s hit Metroid video game series turned out to be a woman, it was a complete shocker for video game fans.
She is seen as one of the hottest and sexiest female video game characters ever since her big reveal at the end of the original 8-bit game.
Soon she was featured in a blue form fitting zero suit and with her beautiful blue eyes, she looks gorgeous. It is still a debatable topic among gamer guys over whether or not she looks better with her helmet off or on. Many of us would surely prefer her helmet off — after all who would want to hide such a beautiful face?

Cosplayers as Samus from Metroid and Link from “The Legend of Zelda” video game series.
Bayonetta, known for her sex appeal, has always been quite famous with gamers. With her slender yet curvaceous body, long hair, skimpy clothing and glasses, she is a dream woman. The mole and the leather suit add to the hotness quotient and who wouldn’t love a badass girlfriend who kills demons. Her creators sure know to grab an eye or a two keep it there.
Yuna – Final Fantasy series
In Final Fantasy X, Yuna was seen as more focused and dedicated warrior, who was walking down the same path as her father.
She would fight all the monstrous creatures that terrorize Spira. In Final Fantasy X-2, a new and transformed Yuna comes forward. With her new look and clothes that barely cover her, she gained a lot more attention.
