Quality Time With The Classic Video Game Characters You'd Switch Teams For

Total RecallTotal RecallTotal Recall is a look back at the history of video games through their characters, franchises, developers and trends.

Yesterday on #Speakup, commenter chadoban asked which video game characters we'd all go gay (or straight) for. Your answers were as varied as they were enjoyable, so Chris Person thought he'd grab some of the most popular ones and render them into gifs.

Check out the gifs below. Enjoy them. Place them on your desktop, or on your geocities homepage. Embrace the temptation.


Up top, we have Godot from Phoenix Wright. Man, that guy is totally the dreamiest character in Phoenix Wright history. Also: There's a "hot coffee" joke in here somewhere but I'm not quite finding it.

Nathan Drake from the Uncharted Series

Oh man, this one is amazing. See how dreamily he looks into the distance as he holds the side of the traincar! Not only is he looking ultra-handsome in this shot, but it also makes me remember one of the best levels in the entire Uncharted series.


Poison from Final Fight and Street Fighter

Well yeah, I can see what the attraction is about here. Ladies, is she beckoning you onward to a fight? Or does she just want to get a little closer? Who can tell, who can tell…


Balthier from Final Fantasy XII

Aah, Final Fantasy XII. One of the Final Fantasys that I don't know much about. That Balthier sure is a good looking rogue though, isn't he?


The Boss from Metal Gear Solid 3

Okay, this one I get. Her strong demeanor, her troubled past; that sexy headband. Too bad about… well, you know. What happens.
