The Battle of the Hoodies, with Connor From Assassin’s Creed 3

The hoodie is like fashion’s pie ‘n’ chips (or, if you’re American, hamburger and fries). It’s the tasty fashion treat you go to when you’re not sure what else to do, and that seems to have been the case for a lot of video game character artists. No wonder, you don’t have to have taken a degree in video game design, or have a masters in fashion to see how damn cool a hoodie looks! Just check out Altair, Ezio and Connor from Assassin’s Creed 1 2 and 3.  ..

Yes, the hoodie is awesome, you don;t need a game art degree to see that. But just who are the top ten hoodie wearing games character ever? We’ll get to that in a minute, but first, let’s check in with a guy who couldn’t quite make the list on account of being released a little too late: Connor from Assassin’s Creed 3.

Connor from Assassin’s Creed 3: out by a Technicality!  🙁 

Let’s get one thing straight. In just a few months, Connor from Assassin’s Creed 3 is going to be sitting very near the number one spot on this list. Given that Assassin’s Creed 3 isn’t actually out yet, though, we can’t put him on the list. . ..  sad.  .. but somethings must be so. . . in the interest of fairness n all that jazz.

Altair : Altair would be in this top ten, if it wasnt for the fact that there are already two AC entrants already! There was a time when Altair was the MacDaddy of hoodies, but those days have sorely passed. And as time has slipped away, Altair has made that sad fall down the ranks of hoodie-wearers, to find his place here outside the top  ten.

Top Ten Hoodie Wearing Video Game Characters

#10 : Kinzie Kensington: Kinzie is a computer wizard (nerd?) abd a member o the Third Street Sains in Saints Row: The Third. The cute little red head looks cute in her hoodie, but only cute enough to make it number ten in our list.

#9 Alex Mercer

The protagonist of Prototype and the villain of Prototype 2, Alex Mercer was always at a disadvantage with his image on account of having all these sick biochemical weapons n shizz coming out his body. How the hell can you make up for being a weird mutant freak? Easy, just don a badass hoodie, that’s how!


#8  Kenny McCormick

You knew Kenny McCormick was going to be on this list. And if you didn’t know then, honestly, just slap yourself with a wet cod or something. Kenny McCormick looks like the ultimate in cool-poor-repeatedly-dying-kids. And there’s only one thing cool-poor-repeeatedly-dying-kids wear. You guessed it: hoodie!

#7 James Heller

Protagonist of Prototype 2, James Heller suffered the horror of the death of his wife and daughter, a horror caused by Alex Mercer. Heller’s now turned monster himself and like his enemy, he also sports an awesome hoodie.

#6 Alan Wake

Being a fiction writer, you’d think Alan Wake would have the originality to come up with a more unique image than just wearing a hoodie. Then again, he is suffering from writers block.


#5 Big Chill: An alien from Ben 10, Big Chill is this big, bird-look, zombie-eque alien thing.  . . or something. Hell, I dunno. But what I do know is that this dude looks sick in a hoodie.


#4 Green Arrow: This cat is a billionaire. Seriously. A billionaire! He could afford to wear anything he wanted! But what does he choose? Why, a hoodie, of course. The hoodie, therefore, is the only piece of attire as suited to poor kids (Kenny) and it is to billionaires)


#3 Kessler (Infamous): Kessler is the leader of First Sons and a seriously powerful electropathic conduit. So put that in your pipe and smoke it! Oh yeah, he’s also one of the coolest looking video game characters to ever wear a hoodie.


#2 Solid Snake: There was no way we we’re going to live Snake out of this. Even though he’s old in MGS 4 and his skin is becoming all pasty and horrid looking, he can still pull off a wicked hoodie.


#1 Ezio from Assassin’s Creed 2:

Assassin’s Creed really is putting in a top notch performance with its hoodie usage. Connor from Assassin’s Creed 3 may not be able to place higher than number 10 right now, but that doesn’t mean Ezio can’t! Indeed, the nobleman ofFlorence has gone and handed himself the top spot on this list. But in a few months, will it be Ezio and Assassin’s Creed 2 at number one or Connor and Assassin’s Creed 3? Only time will tell.

So what have you learned about the hoodie, boys and girls? That’s right. You’ve learned that whether you’re a cool-poor-repeeatedly-dying-kid, a billionaire, an old snake-ish dude with pasty skin or even a freaking alien, you can still pull off a hoodie.

It seems the hoodie has save us all. All hail the hoodie!


if you think you could design a better outfit than the hoodie, apply to a video game design school near you!   he he
