Ranking the Top Ten Babes of Video Games

Here at Geek Culture we take pride in not only our comic book babes, but also those who got their start in a slightly different format. Though some have crossed genres, these deadly, yet beautiful women are our top ten babes to come from video games. Enjoy!

1) Kitana (Mortal Kombat) - Edenia's favorite princess is also the chick who kicked your ass in Mortal Kombat II. Once labeled the 'unbeatable character,' Kitana goes down in my book as the number one video game babe. 
Choice Actress: Morena Baccarin

2) Lara Croft (Tomb Raider) - This British beauty ranks number two on our list. Probably the biggest solo series featuring a female lead, Tomb Raider has stood the test of time as one of the most challenging and fun action/adventure games for more than a decade.
Choice Actress: Ali Larter

3) Chun-Li (Street Fighter) - Serving as an undercover Interpol agent, Chun-Li has proven not only to be a beautiful asset to the Street Fighter saga, but also a fierce opponent with her killer legs and signature spinning bird kick. 
Choice Actress: Kristin Kreuk

4) Sonya Blade (Mortal Kombat) - The list is bound to be filled with Mortal Kombat babes as the game has spanned such a large time frame and created many memorable characters. Sonya Blade, the original female kombatant, is an obvious choice for our number four. 
Choice Actress: Hudson Leick

5) Princess Peach (Mario) - That's right guys, clocking in at number five is our very own Princess Peach Toadstool from the Mario series. Every young boy who grew up playing the numerous releases from Nintendo no doubt had a crush on this princess. Don't deny it, if you weren't in love, why did you log all those hours trying to save her? Don't blame it on Mario. 
Choice Actress: Alicia Silverstone

6) Rubi Malone (Wet) - A relatively new character to the video game world, this Bethesda Softworks game debuted in 2009 and tried to set a new form of game play. Playing off the grindhouse styled hits from Quentin Tarantino and Robert Rodriguez, this hit featured the deadly assassin Rubi Malone. A Jack Daniel's drinking, foul-mouthed woman seeking revenge 'Kill Bill' style. Ultimately the character proved to be hotter than the actual game play. 
Choice Actress: Eliza Dushku

7) Mileena (Mortal Kombat) - Twin sister or more appropriately evil clone to our number one video game babe Kitana, Mileena is a deadly force to be reckoned with. Her mask may hide a hideous secret but that doesn't stop my personal favorite character of the series to rank number seven on our list. 
Choice Actress: Rose McGowan

8) Ada Wong (Resident Evil) - Though she seemed to have been lost in the battle against Raccoon City in Resident Evil 2, this deadly ally made a shocking, yet much welcomed re-appearance in Resident Evil 4. That should teach us to not underestimate Ms. Wong again.
Choice Actress: Dichen Lachman / Grace Park

9) Cammy (Street Fighter) - Though not the hottest female of the Street Fighter series, Cammy definitely proved to hold her own. In a 2009 poll asking thousands of fans which character they would like to see most in Street Fighter IV Cammy won by a land slide. Apparently someone agrees with me.
Choice Actress: Maggie Grace

10) Eve (Parasite Eve) - Hopefully some of you remember this gem for the Playstation 1 system. Parasite Eve featured horror game play similar to Resident Evil with a rich back story and not to mention a hot female lead. Though Melissa, the villain of the story, was more my taste, we give the number ten spot to the lead character, Eve. 
Choice Actress: Sarah Michelle Gellar
