6 Male Video Game Characters That Will Melt Your Heart

By Intan Mawarni on Apr 5, 2018

The advancement of video game graphics is absolutely breathtaking now compared to what we’ve seen at the very beginning of video games in the 1970s (Pong, anyone?).

I mean, would you just look at Final Fantasy VIII back in 1999 which was considered as the best graphics ever?

I’m glad now game developers are doing God’s work of refining video game graphics to a whole new level of immersion for the players. Better graphics mean better looking characters. Better looking characters means more hotties for us to drool over...

Speaking of, here are some good-looking male characters that will certainly make your heart racing.

1. Link (Legend of Zelda series)

Meet the icon, the legend himself, Link from The Legend of Zelda series. His most recent appearance being in Breath of The Wild which is considered as one of the best games in 2017 and received the full score from Edge Asia. On top of that, he remains one of the most popular video game characters in the history of video games. Keep saving Hyrule, Link!

2. Nathan Drake (Uncharted series)

The Nathan Drake saga came to an end in with Uncharted: A Thief’s End back in 2016 but he’s amongst the best things PlayStation and Naughty Dog have ever made. From a suave (illegal) treasure hunter to maintaining a (now legal) treasure hunting business with his wife Elena, he’s certainly got the adventure blood pumping in his veins.

3. Solid Snake (Metal Gear series)

I know there are a lot of Snake clones scattered throughout the whole series but let’s focus on the hero, Solid Snake. He’s known as the world’s greatest soldier, is highly skilled in combat and espionage on top of being able to converse in six languages. At the end of Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots, he decided to quit smoking and peacefully lives on as Old Snake.

4. Dante (Devil May Cry series)

He’s the son of the demon, Sparda, and a human woman, Eva, and has an evil (maybe… not?) identical twin brother named Vergil. The demon hunter wields the heavy sword Rebellion along with his trusty Ebony and Ivory guns on the side. His favourite food is pizza with every topping imaginable. I wonder if he actually likes pineapple on pizza…?

5. Leon S. Kennedy (Resident Evil series)

From a rookie cop who survived the Raccoon City incident to an agent tasked with saving the president’s daughter, Leon S. Kennedy is the perfect man to protect you against zombie outbreaks. Not only is he a master of close-hand combat, he’s also a skilled marksman. I just have one question though: how does he aim his gun with that flowy, silky hair?

6. Cullen Rutherford (Dragon Age series)

Cullen was a just small-time templar who guarded the Ferelden’s Circle Tower until he was promoted to be the Commander of the Inquisition. His personality seems to change as drastically as his appearance does. Sadly, he’s seems to be that kind of man who just happens to be in the wrong place and at the wrong time. I like his romantic-side the most in Dragon Age: Inquisition. Very romantic.
