Since we all love a little eye candy I present to you our Hottest Guy award.
I always love the voting process for our awards. The volunteers all chat quite a bit and usually, we can guess what each other will vote for in several categories. The hottest guy category (and hottest girl)  is something I always watch a little closer because it is so varied, and I can never guess who will vote for who.
The look of each guy that ends up being in our final 5 is usually quite different, proving our tastes are very eclectic around here. Anyhow, lets jump right into it.

 Phoenix Wright (Ace Attorney: Spirit of Justice)

2016 Oprainfall Awards | Hottest Guy

NA Release Date: September 8, 2016

Platform(s): 3DS


When he isn’t winning his cases he is busy winning a place in our hearts, or at least a place in our “Hottest Guy” award. With that clean cut face, styling hair, and ultimate suite wardrobe, can you blame us for counting him among the hottest? Where would you rank Phoenix Wright on your list?

Gunvolt (Azure Striker Gunvolt 2)

2016 Oprainfall Awards | Hottest Guy

NA Release Date: September 29, 2016

Platform(s): 3DS


I’m not sure if it’s the outfit, that spiky hair, the beautiful weaponry, or the combination of it all, but something landed Gunvolt in the fight for the title. Who can blame us? With an all around sexy look like that, we had to vote for him.

Gladiolus (Final Fantasy XV)

2016 Oprainfall Awards | Final Fantasy XV

NA Release Date: November 29, 2016

Platform(s): PlayStation 4, Xbox One


Those eyes! They pierce right through your very soul and are definitely a reason why he made it into our final five for “Hottest Guy”. Gladiolus looks like a man on a mission, and a man we would invite to be on any mission with us indeed.

Professor Kukui (Pokemon Sun/Moon)

2016 Oprainfall Awards | Professor Kukui

NA Release Date: November 18, 2016

Platform(s): 3DS


Some guys are all guns and fighting or serious and business-like, and then there is Professor Kukui. With his laid back style and super-relaxed look is it any wonder he’s one of our favorites? Way to go professor!

Niles (Fire Emblem Fates)

2016 Oprainfall Awards | Niles

NA Release Date: February 19, 2016

Platform(s): 3DS


In keeping with our theme of drastically different looking men, we have Niles. Niles is rocking some boots that I would totally wear. He definitely has an air of mystery about him with his cloak and eye mask. He doesn’t have to tell us all of his secrets. We will hold him close anyhow.

And the winner is…

Gladiolus (Final Fantasy XV)

2016 Oprainfall Awards | Gladiolus

Without further ado… I bring you the winner of our Hottest Guy Award. Our taste may vary from volunteer to volunteer but it soon becomes clear that the majority of us prefer the darker side of things. I guess at the end of the day we prefer the badass look. Sexy Gladiolus won us over and shall forever be the winner of this year’s “Hottest Guy” award.

Let us know who you would have voted for and who your #1 guy was for the year.
