Their is an actual website out there, called www.dateagamer.co.uk and they have been conducting a poll for 18-35 year old males in order that they may create the perfect girlfriend. Nearly 2000 took part in this and voted on favourite parts of female gaming characters.
The end result was Lara Lockhart who is apparently the perfect virtual woman, she has the hair of Joanna Dark from Perfect Dark, the of Lara Croft from Tomb Raider, and body of Final Fantasy VII’s Tifa Lockhart.
A spokesman for Date A Game said “Lara Tifa combines the best of each to give the total package: beauty, intelligence, and confidence. The only drawback is she doesn’t really exist.” Um and I think its a good job she doesnt, for one thing, she would probably walk with a stoop due to the size of those boobs and frankly she looks scary.
The full list comprised Lara Croft from the Tomb Raider series, Street Fighter character Chun Li, Tifa Lockhart from the Final Fantasy franchise, Catwoman from Batman: Arkham City, Joanna Dark from Perfect Dark, Faith Conners from Mirror’s Edge, Nintendo icon Princess Peach, Jill Valentine from Resident Evil, Alyx Vance from Half-Life 2 and Asari researcher Liara T’Soni, from the Mass Effect trilogy.
Lara Croft picked up 53 per cent for her legs, beating Chun-Li’s 44 per cent, while the famously top-heavy Tifa received 45 per cent of the vote for her face and also beat main rival Lara with 38 per cent for her pixel-perfect body. Joanna Dark’s red hair was a hit with 36 per cent of respondents, Catwoman’s lips received 33 per cent of the vote, and Faith Conners’ eyes mesmerised 41 per cent.
When it came to personality, the ‘girl next door’ appeal of Alyx Vance won out with 31 per cent, followed by Princess Peach, who got 26 per cent of the vote for her “warmth and ability to bake a good cake”. So good to know then kitchen jokes are still popular then, smh.
Top tip, if you are a single gamer, looking for your ideal woman, I would suggest avoiding taking part in ridiculous polls and just try talking to women, be it the woman next door or someone online, as that’s generally the key to starting a relationship.
