I just noticed that there are A LOT more attractive female video game characters than male characters. Why is this? Isn't it unfair? lol! I can't think of any good looking male characters besides Kurtis. Oh, and Ratchet too of course. http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/tongue.gif ;) There are many attractive female characters like Lara, Rayne, Yuna, Rikku, Lulu, Paine, and that's just to name a few. There are countless more out there. And male characters all there are is Kurtis and Ratchet. Ratchet shouldn't even count since he isn't human lol. Isn't that weird?

HI Mel,

Yes I would have to agree. I think it is because many programmers believe that the video game world is dominated by male players...hence the female allure of a female character. Also guys may try to make a male character look good but wha's 'good' in their eyes isn't always appealing to female gamers ya know. I think it takes a female to know what is attractive to a wide range of female players. Hmmm or maybe a special sort of guy would also know what we like http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/tongue.gif

I know! and here's something even worse.

Have you ever noticed that on a bunch of sitcom shows, the women are beautiful and the men are ugly:

Still Standing
The King of Queens
Yes Dear
Law and Order
NYPD BLue

It goes on forever, and how about female actors not getting jobs much after they are like 40.
Older men will always get jobs like Gene Hackman, or Tommy Lee Jones-they are great, but the female roles always have to be played by a young, beautiful woman-most of the time.

James Bond movies are a perfect example.

I can think of a few attractive male characters:

Raiden from Metal Gear Solid 2 is a cutie. You even get to play him naked (although all you can see is his butt and not the front). Snake is also, if you like the older guys.

Tidus from Final Fantasy X has that baby face look to him. Japanese people love that look, generally http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/yuck.gif . But he's cute in the really good graphics (not the in-game one). But it IS Final Fantasy, everyone is pretty much good looking there.

Dante from Devil May Cry is attractive! lol, very much so. And I'd say Hotsuma from Shinobi, he has a very interesting look that I think is cute. And that guy o nthe cover of Samurai Warriors!! I don't know his name but he's very good looking :D

Oh, and the Prince from Prince of Persia, hehe. Most people don't think he is, but I do.

There are a lot of attractive male game characters, but then again, the females are always attractive too.

Let me also add Blake Stone, Duke Nukem, BJ Blazkowicz (Wolfenstein) of the shooters part, and also the Resident Evil guys (Chris Redfield, Steve, Albert Wesker), John Mullins (Soldier of Fortune), Max Payne of the action/adventure games part, and lots others.

I don't remember reading this here but it's because more young males play video games.... That is why there are more Good looking Female characters than Male. http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/c-3.gif It's what drives the market for Video Games..... You know what.... http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/redface.gif

Young males are just the stereotypical gamer, nobody expects the girlfriend of a jock to be an avid EverQuest player... http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/tongue.gif

Or her mom...
