L The List
Worst: 5. Guile – Street FighterI know he’s in the army, but does the top of his head need to be flat as a landing pad?
Worst: 4. Paul Phoenix – TekkenComing off as a poor mans Guile, this hairstyle has no justification, no point and no gravity.
Worst: 3. Cloud Strife – Final Fantasy 7Launching a whole swathe of terrible imitators, this is one truly awful haircut. The only thing worse than seeing this hair in a game is seeing it in real life.
Worst: 2. Amy – Soul Calibur 4That’s just silly. This is a desperate attempt to imbue the character with some personality by giving them a wacky hairstyle.
Worst: 1. John Romero – Doom 2While everyone would admit John Romero’s early-nineties grunge-band locks look awful, he’s not a game character. He is however in Doom 2. His head is stuck on a pole in a secret area, meaning that he totally qualifies for this list!
Best: 5. Crimson Viper – Street Fighter 4C. Viper works as a great, visually distinctive character in the Street Fighter series that manages to stand out amongst a cast of freaks, monsters and dull shoto’s. Her fantastic hairstyle is a big part of this.
