Best dressed video game characters

Style is very rarely seen consorting with function. Far too often they are foes battling for man's attention as he attempts to navigate the depths of his wardrobe.

It's in the renderings and pixels of video games that the masters of style and function are to be found. The following selection of characters are the very embodiment of the expression "dressed to kill" - gentlemen quite capable of nonchalantly sipping an Old Fashioned one minute before breaking your face the next. Note: we don't advise on giant swords or guns as the ideal accessory.

Think we missed a well dressed warrior? Let us know in the comments below.
