Seeing as much of what we associate with a famous game character is related to their gender, how would you feel if, say, Lara Croft was a dude? Or Luigi a plumbette?

You can face that bizarro scenario in these pics by David Stonecipher, the same guy who brought us the "game characters with beards" gallery last week.

Strange that, again, Lara Croft is the most terrifying. I wonder if that's down to Stonecipher's art, or how I must subconsciously define Lara by her rack, and not her deeds.
