When it comes to video games, it doesn't take a lot to hook me in. Whether it's got a riveting story line, awesome graphics, action sequences to die for or a soundtrack to party to. But my most favourite reason to play, is the way guys can be depicted in games... So they're animations, so the fuck what?
This post may contain spoilers for the video games mentioned. If you don't want to know about them, don't read. Comprende?

Final Fantasy VIII
Devil May Cry 5 (DmC)
As much as I loved the previous games with Dante and his white hair, I have to say, as it's my favourite game of 2013 at the moment, that DmC with Dante and his short brown hair has got to be the hottest Dante ever.
His one liners probably made him more sexy but I loved the contrast it had compared to his brother Vergil who remained faithful to his white haired ways.
Dante in this game is a rogue loner who has no memories, no reason to live or die or fight and is tormented by it everyday finding solace in partying, killing and women until he meets his long lost brother and his sidekick, Kat. I feel he had to be portrayed and appear as someone who is goodlooking but not exactly pristine. He doesn't care about his appearance because it comes naturally in his rugged, bad boy way. That reflected this massive image change in the game and I think it worked brilliantly.

Resident Evil 2, 4 & 6

Call of Duty
I think I just followed him around in the missions I was supposed to be following orders from Price. When I found out I (Yuri) was partly the reason for his death, I turned the game off. I could not watch that shit and live with the fact the character I was controlling was the reason for this mans death. He's just hot, okay?

So, that's five and although I think a lot more can be added, that's enough for now. I'll do a Part 2 later on.
