Video Game Characters and Their Real Life Face Models

Compiled via reddit, this is a really cool list of a bunch of famed video game characters and the facial models that inspired them. Sure, many heroes and villains are created from scratch, but with facial mapping tech these days, there’s no reason that a real human shouldn’t be used.

Most of these are from Valve titles, but a few Mass Effect roles slid in as well. You could do it for games like LA Noire I suppose, but the characters in that game essentially ARE the actors to the point where it’s easy to ID them right off the bat.

Any significant ones you think they missed here? Check out the full gallery below:
