With today Valentine’s Day, it only seems right that we celebrate the luscious female characters that grace the Xbox 360.

5. Lara Croft – Tomb Raider series

Any hottest babe article that doesn’t include the iconic Lara Croft should instantly be considered in violation of the law. After all, she’s managed to sustain her majority-male audience since the 90’s with her fans drooling over her ample chest and perfectly formed rear.

Even when she dies for the hundredth time – she still manages to do it with the upmost class, sophistication and sex appeal that’s expected of a leading lady.

4. Anya – Gears of War series

Imagine going to war with an alien race; seeing most of your loved ones die; trying to save your father (who inevitably goes missing) and then getting thrown into jail…

That is the tragic story of Marcus Fenix and to him Anya is the colourful oasis in the Gears of War desert of grey. With a dull colour palette, a stunning blonde in a game devoid of any colour makes an impression even more. Rarely seen, Anya guides you through the game via com-link teasing you with her seductive voice.

Thankfully she’s been given a more central role in Gears of War 3 which means players will be able to take in her charms that little bit more.

3. Rubi – Wet

Sadly Wet didn’t do that well. With the sequel having just been binned, this shouldn’t affect your judgement of the Tarantino-eaque Rubi. Chopping people’s limbs off with a samurai sword has never been so sexy and will probably never be again. Confident – we like a lady who’s capable of doing of her own dirty work.

2. Bayonetta – Bayonetta

Bayonetta is certainly an individual that knows what she wants. Some may question her for her lax morals but let’s be serious, would you argue with her? Anyone who’s able to pull off a leather cat suit like that – here’s looking at you Halle Berry – should win space in this converted hall of fame.

1. Miranda – Mass Effect 2

Hot. Hot. Hot. That’s all we really need to say about Miranda, but let’s carry on anyway.  Miranda, modelled after actress Yvonne Strahovski, made the Australian accent sexy in ways we’d never have imagined. Not only that, but Miranda (and Yvonne) have all the right curves in all the right places. What could possibly make her better? Oh yeah, bedding her in the game helps… This is why she is our #1. Pure carnal brilliance – well done Bioware – you satisfied the urges of countless teenage boys around the world.

So we put to you – who are your top 5 female characters? Let us know in the comments below.
