Maxim Lists The Hottest Game Babes Of 2008

image

Maxim.com has published its list of the 17 Hottest Game Babes of 2008, and it's everything you might expect from a list made up primarily of women who exist only in the imaginations of horny, sexually-repressed videogame developers.

This year's list of pretend hot chicks is a diverse one, covering a wide range of game genres, and even includes a few real women, albeit women dressed up as ridiculously under-uniformed special forces soldiers. The one and only non-fiction female in the list is tennis star Maria Sharapova, who appeared in 2K Sports' Top Spin 3, and while her real-life hotness is unquestionable the image taken from the game has fallen so far down into the uncanny valley that how it qualifies as anything but creepy as hell is utterly beyond my comprehension.

Some entries in the list are traditional gamer favorites - Lara Croft, anyone? - while the inclusion of Street Fighter heroine Chun-Li is indicative of nothing so much as a determination to include 17 game babes come hell or high water. And while the undead-killing skills of Left 4 Dead's token female Zoey may be admirable, does she really qualify as "hot?"

Personally, I don't see how the guys at Maxim managed to put this list together without including that chick from all the Age of Conan promos, but maybe I'm biased: My internet service package includes real porn. Still, if drooling over cartoon chicks is your cup of T&A, you can have a look at Maxim's complete list of the 17 Hottest Game Babes of 2008 here.

I'd always thought Sophitia dressed a wee bit more conservative than that...That's more Mai Shiranui's sort of costume.

But Maria Sharapova is lush.

..........Maxim are full of pillocks. Where is the Witch from L4D huh?

I looked at this list and I must say that more than half of it is complete bollocks!

Is Lola ever actually seen in GTA:IV

wow, thats the worst list i've ever seen. almost looks like they made it just for the sake of making it. half assed, IMO.

This sums up the entirety of Maxim so well.

Some of the images are actually quite unflattering... Zoey is one that comes to mind; while I do agree she looks nice, she looked worse in their image that in the 'promo movie poster' that players see during the loading scene.

I didn't know Maxim did that kind of thing. PSM does, I know that.

Ah Maxim, I see that you still try uselessly to stay "hip and cool" by trying to cater to every possible demographic...

They picked Hillery Duff as one of the top ten hottest babes.

OUT OF EVERYONE.

Them kids don't got eyes.

What does she even look like nowadays?

Yes Andy, Zoey is hot.

So I take it that nobody at Maxim has played The Witcher:Enhanced Edition?

If they extended the list to 20 they probably would have also included Moria Brown from Fallout 3, Hammer from Fable 2 and one of the zombie Nurses from Silent Hill: Homecoming.

My girlfriend is way better looking than Sharapova :)

they didn't include ivy from sc4? the fuck

Actually, probably not.

I was going to bring this one up too, but since the EE is really just a re-release of a 2007 title, I figured it was a bit borderline. But as far as game babes go, it's a great call - they're not just hot, they're quite happy to show it off, too.

But isn't the Witcher censored in the US?

Meh too few normal looking women in that list (and gaming in general).

Anywho, out of that list I'd say Elika is the most appealing to me personally. Absolute worst would be Natasha Volkova.

I hope not. Regardless her hotness is somewhat diminished by the fact she has six fingers. Seriously. Go look at the drawing again, she has 4 fingers and a thumb-like appendage on one side of the lolly, and you can just glimpse a sixth digit between the thumb and the forefinger.

Is it bad if I find the video game version of Sharapova more attractive than the real one?

*edit*

That was a cold, awful lie.

OF COURSE Lara got in the hottest of 08, she's been a fav for a loooong time.
But I am sooooo glad a Soul Calibur girl got in, 'bout time!

Sigh... They should have went with top 5 or top 10 because half of those "chicks" don't come anywhere close to "hot".

I'll give you that's The Witcher:Enhanced Edition is pretty borderline, but it's a whole lot less borderline than Super Street Fighter 2 Turbo: HD Remix.
At least the orginal Witcher was released this century (and millenium).

nilcypher:

But even with the censored sex cards, or even without the sex cards entirely, I think the women of The Witcher are a lot more sexy and evocative (and sometimes downright filthy) than some of the characters on Maxim's list.

But I suppose Maxim appeals more to the mainstream, console playing demographic than PC RPG players, and this is reflected in their choices.
The Witcher isn't massively popular amongst gamers, so it's not really surprising Maxim hasn't played it or even heard of it. (A quick search on their site doesn't return any results).

how true, how true. used to be a good read, i will give them that. i had a lot of late nights working graveyard at 7-Eleven, where that was some of the funniest stuff I had ever read. Long time ago, though, guess they left that quality behind.

Ughch, I hate these "ToP 20 hOtTeSt ViDeO gAmE bAbEs Of [email protected]^$!#^$" bullshit from these news sites. It's like they're trying to enforce the stereotype that all gamers want are big tits n' asses......wait...

Many game creators have to stop making their girls look like some angel/seductress and more like a normal person. Leave the sexual stuff to fanart, they'll always do that.

Faith > Celeste, imo.

never knew they did this, kinda reminds me of my kid days when i played games to seriously and would dream of being with some of the female characters of some of the video games i played

Reads like a list made by a guy who didn't have a lot of time who used Google as his source.

AGH! Jeez, that's creepy.

Anyway, you never see Lola once in GTA4 (unless you count the initial loading screen), however there's a entry on her in the police database.

Further emphasised by the dreadful quality of some of those pictures.

Funny how they post huge spoilers for the entire MGS series under naomi's entry but somehow miss the fact that

I'm suprised nobody started any riots yet about the distinctive lack of Alyx Vance there.

Also, why is anya(gow, gow2) on that list? she has about 5 seconds of screentime in both games combined.

Overall, this gives the feeling of a list that has been sponsored by ea and konami, as they are responsible for about half the things on there.

lol what the fuck?

Final proof that the guys at Maxim have nothing better to do.

I'd say her "Mossman hands" disqualified her.
