We've already had our fair share of Game of the Year awards, now it's time to find out what everyone has just been dying to know: Who were the hottest video game babes this year?

A crack team of qualified and highly intelligent researchers at Maxim put together their list, which features the likes of Zoey (Left 4 Dead), Celeste (Mirror's Edge), and Elika (Prince of Persia). But while this list isn't ranked per se, if I had to pick just one I would most certainly have to go with Jenny McCarthy from Red Alert 3. Not because she's real or that I've seen her naked, but because she's 36. Yes, 36! I'll even argue she looks better now (in a more mature way) than from her days on MTV's Singled Out.

Anyway, I feel there were a few omitted, like Shanoa (Castlevania: Order of Ecclesia), Kaoru Sayama (Yakuza 2), and any one of the girls from Persona 4.

Any others?
