UK website VoucherCodesPro.co.uk surveyed 1,240 male and 994 female UK gamers to determine who they believed to be the most attractive video game characters of all time.
The study asked respondents ‘From your gaming experience who do you consider to be the sexiest female/male video game character?’ and allowed them to choose from a list of options with photos, which revealed the following results. They were allowed to select more than one answer.
Iconic character Lara Croft tops the female list, with Tifa Lockheart of Final Fantasy fame and Joanna Dark of the Perfect Dark series in second and third respectively.
