just a list of ridiculously muscled characters (not in order) feel free to comment with some more

1. Batman from Arkham Asylum

2. Chris Redfield from Resident Evil 5
Image

3. JB and Rios from Army of Two the 40th Day
Image

4. Any male character from Gears of War
Image

5. Kratos from God of War 3

seriously game developers? why? i mean some of these make sense like kratos but Batman makes no sense don't get me wrong i love arkham asylum but if Bruce Wayne looked like that everybody would guess instantly that he was batman. Anyway add anymore you can think of.

Well I guess they could say if you're rich you won't have anything better to do than hit the gym... I feel like pretty much every video game character is unrealistically muscular, its just about idealizing the human body.

It's kind of like how all the women have giant boobs... Simply ridiculous. I agree with Bob about idealizing the human body.

the biceps aren't that big considering the rest of their muscles (i.e. shoulders), they have to make them proportional otherwise it would just look ridiculous

but I do agree that video games tend to make everyone look incredibly jacked which isn't a terrible thing just unrealistic.

The Chris pic doesn't work but I've always felt he looked ridiculous especially in comparison to Leon. Why doesn't Leon get big muscles too :P

It's all a matter of proportion. Artists want the characters to look powerfull and sturdy.

I agree about the proportion statements. All these guys and girls are how we normal people would wanna be, buff or voluptuous lol

First game characters that came to my mind that were rly buff is Gears of war lol

I would not like to look like Arkham Batman there.

The guy looks like the guy from the Hulk series.
