GameSpy's Top Ten Sexiest Babes in Games. I'm sure I'm not issuing a major spoiler by noting that #1 is Tomb Raider's Lara Croft. Still, I think the list cheats somewhat by nominating all the girls of the Street Fighter and Dead or Alive series.
And I consider Resident Evil's Claire Redfield to be sexier than Jill Valentine; maybe it's Claire's motorcycle duds, or Jill's atrocious voice acting in the original Resident Evil, or the fact that Claire chooses to hunt zombies, while Jill has to, because she is a cop, after all, but there you go.
I would also nominate Ridge Racer Type 4's Reiko Nagase, Final Fantasy VIII's Rinoa Heartilly, Devil May Cry's Trish, Tekken 2's Jun Kazama, and Onimusha Warlords' ninja Kaede.
Update: Great googly moogly! How could I have overlooked Metal Gear Solid's Meryl Silverburgh?
