The female game characters who waggled our joysticks.
Lara Croft, Tomb Raider
Prior to Lara Croft's debut appearance in Tomb Raider, video game crushes more often than not involved cute girls who barely said two words to the player. Lara Croft changed all that, with an "I'm smarter than you" attitude, dual-wielded uzis, and… ahem… massive mammaries. Let's be honest: we all fancied her because she was well fit, but there was more to Lara than that. Her complete disregard for animal rights turned us on, as did her posh English accent and mouth-watering flexibility. In this video game crush, Lara wore the trousers, and that was absolutely fine by us.
