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.
Best: 4. Captain Price – Call of Duty 4: Modern WarfareWhen other games tried to rip off Modern Warfare, they tried to make dull characters iconic by simply giving them prominent facial hair (see Medal of Honor). This failed as Price was a decent character as well as a fantastic, moustachioed hero.
Best: 3. Kratos – God Of WarBecause sometimes less is more.
