When it comes to dating, some of us base our standards in finding the ideal date from the books we read or the characters we’ve watched in TV series or movies. However, if you’re going to ask gamers, they won’t deny that their standards were quite influenced by the hundreds of beautiful and smart female characters they’ve encounter while playing video games.
Before we got to know any 3D rendered beauty in the world of gaming, there was the 8-bit blonde princess who made Mario risk his life to save from the evil King Koopa. We don’t know why, but we always have been curious to why Mario never gives up on finding Princess Peach no matter how many castles he went into. Maybe it’s because she’s gorgeous, or there is something special about her. One thing we know, though, Princess Peach can make a man go to extreme lengths just to meet her.
From one princess to the other, we’ve got to meet Zelda as the fantastic heroine of the popular Nintendo game series “Legend of Zelda.” Unlike the usual damsel-in-distress, what we all love about Princess Zelda is her wisdom and her courage to help Link in his missions. In Ocarina of Time, she even took the form of Sheik to help Link defeat the evil Ganondorf. And that’s what we want in a woman, someone who supports us every step of the way.
Tifa Lockheart is the brunette stunner from Final Fantasy VII. In an official artwork released by Square Enix, it is revealed that Tifa’s vital statistics are 37-24-35 inches. So just imagine that! But aside from her beautiful face and her sexy body, Tifa is also known to be incredibly strong. She even managed to fight with Loz, one of the three Remnants of Sephiroth. But amidst all of that, she is a kind and sweet woman that we couldn’t help to wonder why Cloud didn’t fell in love with her.
Since the Warcraft III: Frozen Throne mod game Defense of the Ancients was released, one of the most memorable heroes in its roster is the beautiful Crystal Maiden. Rylai Crestfall was introduced in Dota All-Stars as a Mage who can manipulate frost and ice and can deal immense damage by using her gifts. However, in Dota 2, her story was changed, and she is introduced as Lina’s younger sister. Nevertheless, she remains as the lovely Ice Mage who can freeze your heart with one look.
There is just something about mysterious girls that are attractive. Selina Kyle was more popularly known by her alias Catwoman is the professional thief in the city of Gotham. Even the Dark Knight couldn’t help but be smitten by this femme fatale. Another thing we love about her is that her character stands between the boundaries of an occasional hero and villain, adding up to her mysterious charm. Oh, and let’s not forget to mention her leather catsuit.
Ada Wong is a professionally trained spy with a mysterious background. She is known as an ambiguous character in the Resident Evil Series who can be quite cold and unemotional except for Leon, who she seems to have a soft spot. Why do we love her? Well, she is a smart, independent, and can protect herself from a horde of mutated zombies. In fact, Ada Wong was included in our 2016’s list of 10 dateable video game characters.
Last but not the least is Lara Croft, the sexy and feisty British archaeologist who has smitten us off our feet. And have you seen her in the latest reboot, the Rise of the Tomb Raider for gaming PCs and consoles? She is hot as ever! She is just perfect. She’s beautiful, tough, sexy, intelligent, and independent. She is also very resourceful, and since she is an archaeologist, she has a vast knowledge of the history and culture of different countries. She’s the perfect girl to travel with around the world.
