Suns out, buns out! As the weather warms, us gamers should take sometime to get outside and stay healthy. However, we’re kidding ourselves if we don’t think we’ll be spending extended time inside, gaming. Since our time at the pool and beach will be limited, we should figure out which video game vixens can bring the scenery to us. Here are eleven video game women who definitely have rockin’ bikini bods.
Some quick parameters: I’ve limited it to only one woman per franchise and I’ve eliminated furries from the conversation. (Not this time, guys.) These ladies are listed in no particular order.
1. Elizabeth from BioShock Infinite
Despite a small deformity, Elizabeth is pretty much flawless for a woman whose been kept in a literal tower most of her life. Molded after a cross between Zooey Deschanel and a Disney princess, Elizabeth has a quiet yet commanding sexual energy to her. Styled to be any steampunk teen’s late-night fantasy, there is no way that this sidekick wouldn’t look dandy in a bathing suit. That said, if you stared at her too long, she’d probably rattle off some speech about how immoral you were being.
2. Ivy Valentine
No list of sexy game girls would be complete without this Soul Calibur mainstay. She’s one of the few women that could get any dom to consider switching roles for a night, and she kicks some serious ass. Her outfit already leaves little to the imagination, but this ivy blade enthusiast definitely has the body for a two-piece thong. Modesty is clearly not something she’s worried about, and if you’re lucky, she might let you put on some sunblock so she can keep her gorgeous complexion.
3. Sonya Blade (Mortal Kombat 9)
I’m not including the abomination from Mortal Kombat X because I actually have testosterone and a spine. However, Sonya in Mortal Kombat 9 was perfection, and her incredible body would fit amazingly well into a bikini. With those long and powerful legs attached to a nice ass, she’d get all sorts of attention at the beach. Not to mention, those watermelon-sized knockers would sure add flavor to any summer picnic. Sonya Blade’s extreme hotness may have been short-lived, but us true Kombaters will never forget.
4. Christie Monterio
Christie Monterio is from the Tekken series and hails from beautiful Brazil. Graced with undeniable pixelated beauty, she’s as good in the ring as she is on the dance floor. While Christie is almost always donning a bikini top, she is usually also wearing long pants. The look works for her, but I think we’d all like to see her show more skin. Tekken Beach Volleyball, anyone?
5. Sorceress from Dragon’s Crown
The character that got all of the SJWs in the world angry as well as horny had to make this list. With a ridiculous but well-appreciated bust, the Sorceress from Dragon’s Crown has a body that just won’t quit. I’d personally love to see her in Pamela Anderson’s famous one-piece, but anything will satisfy.
6. Lara Croft
Chances are she was the first video game character to make you all hot and bothered. Lara Croft, the star of the Tomb Raider series, has been the unofficial sex symbol of the video game world for decades, so wanting to see her in a bikini is only natural. And while she was definitely better with big boobs, rebooted or not, she’s still a woman we all yearn to see in a bikini.
7. Samus Aran
While the Zero Suit leaves little to the imagination, Samus Aran is still one of the more tantalizing female figures in gaming. Maybe it has something to do with the fact that gamers playing the first Metroid game had no idea Samus was a woman. Regardless, her tall blonde physique, piercing eyes, tight booty and ample bust make her an idea candidate for a itsy-bitsy red bikini. Extra points for being flexible enough that she can roll into a ball.
8. Rikku from Final Fantasy X & X-2
I’ll be the first to admit that I actually enjoyed Final Fantasy X-2, but that was more for dubious reasons. Rikku answers the question “What if Sara Jean Underwood was a video game character?” Fun, bouncy and definitely a freak in the sheets, Rikku has a perpetual summer body. Yuna and Paine are cute in their own right, but Rikku has a body type that begs for summer wear.
9. The Bikini Girl from Grand Theft Auto V
The Bikini Girl from GTA V is literally in a bikini for your loading screen. If you haven’t ogled at this lass at least once, you haven’t truly played the game. Purportedly based on Kate Upton and the cause of a lawsuit from Lindsay Lohan, this bikini girl has become the unofficial mascot of the record-breaking game. If that doesn’t make her one of the best bikini bods in gaming, I don’t know what will.
10. Helena Douglas
You knew that someone from the Dead or Alive series had to make the list. Now, I know some people were expecting “classic” choices like Kasumi or Ayane, but Helena has the true bikini bod. While Kasumi and Ayane have heavier chests, Helena has the total package and also has a more classy look to even her more revealing outfits. Helena looks good in just about everythin, and bikinis are just one of those things.
11. Carley from The Walking Dead Season One
Carley from The Walking Dead video game plays an integral role in your team. She spends the entire game covered up, yet she still fills out a pencil skirt very well. In a game all about deciding when to reveal personal information, I can’t help but wonder what secrets she held under her blouse. She may be an unorthodox choice to some, but there is not enough rule 34 fodder of Carley on the Internet.
With so many beautiful pixelated women out there, I’m sure I missed quite a few. I’m sure we can all think of more, so pull out those imagination caps folks, and grab your joysticks.
