We reached out to our listeners to ask one of the most important questions in the history of ever, and that is "Who are the best Video Game Waifus?" We ask our readers on Twitter, Facebook, and other social media and this is what they came up with.
10. Sonya Blade
From the famously brutal Mortal Kombat series we have Sonya Blade hitting #10 on this list. Descending from Austin, Texas, Sonya is part of the US special forces, trained in the most deadly of martial arts, pulling a crowd with what readers noted as "sexy and strong legs". We are assuming there was heavy breathing going on as they typed that.
Shanoa is a popular character In the gaming community, starting in the hit series Castlevania. She's the main character of Castlevania: Order of Ecclesia (3DS), appear in Castlevania: Judgment (Wii) and Castlevania: Harmony of Despair (Xbox 360 & Playstation 3). She is not just a pretty face as she has the gift to make weapons magically appear from her hands, using them to fight the evil forces of Dracula. Must be noted, that because of her special powers, hand jobs are pretty much off limits.
8. Sniper Wolf
This Hot Blond appear in Metal Gear Solid (PS1), and Metal Gear Solid: The Twin Snakes (Gamecube). Born In the war-torn country of Iraq and was rescued by none other than Big Boss himself, she grew up to be a highly skilled sharpshooter and loves Wolves so much she kept one as a pet. She will aim for your heart, in more ways then one.
She's a wonderful princes from Super Mario Galaxy & 2, living on the Comet Observatory in space. Her responsibility is protecting the cosmos(no pressure right?). She made her appearance in Mario Kart Wii, 7, 8 and the Mario Party 10. Here kindness and responsible nature make her a beloved Waifu to many.
The sexy undead leader of the Forsaken in the Warcraft series, making many MMO fans the world over feeling a bit necrophiliac. Fans' hopes and dreams to have a powerful yet lovely Waifu like her(maybe with a little less rot but I ain't judging) who has the power to lead an army of the living dead at her command giving her the #6 position on this list.
From the Persona 4 franchise, from Okina City, Japan, she is a first-year student at Yasogami High School, and an ex-popular idol who works at her Mom and Pop restaurant. She is cute, flirty, funny and also a little bit crazy. This was also extremely recommended by Intern Matt, and Intern Matt knows a thing or two about Waifus, so be sure to ask him about it on twitter.
You knew she was eventually going to make it on our list. From the Tomb Raider series witch hit the PSone in early 90’s, Lara Croft smashed expectations when it came to protagonists in early 3D gaming. Coming to us from the UK, she has a positive attitude, loves archaeology, in an adventurous spirit, armed with dual pistols, and acrobatic skills that would put Indiana Jones to Shame, that's why Lara slides in at #4.
Appearing in many of the Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney series games, hailing from Los Angeles, California, she was born into a prominent family of spirit mediums known as the Fey Clan. Friend's with Phoenix Wright, it's a marvel that she is still single, bringing excess amounts of kawaii to the hand held scene.
Bringing a tightening to the pants of many, Tharja appear in Fire Emblem: Awakening from the land of Plegia and is a powerful Dark Mage that can destroy your enemy’s with a look that can kill. She may appear to act cold hearted, but deep down she is a caring and loving person who flaunts what she got. You know her Beach Body is always ready.
From Xenosaga Trilogy for PS2 the wonderful Kosmos, who has superhuman strength, speed, and can morph her arms into weapons. She may be a machine, but deep down she has a good heart and is trying to protect humanity from evils that are trying to destroy the universe. This mix of moe and machine has struck the hearts of many making her Number 1.
