That misogyny and objectification of the female form run deep in the culture of video games is no secret. Female game characters, female game executives, and female game documentarians have all suffered the creepy—and worse—attention of a particular segment of gamers.

Which is why the Tumblr Men in the Games Industry is so refreshing, funny, and strangely poignant. It's a simple setup: sexy—and not so sexy—photos of a variety of men who work in the games industry. As the Tumblr's about text reads, "Objectifying men all year round. Why, because, well... MEN! Video games are making as much money as movies. Why not highlight the handsome hunks of the gaming industry, too?" For once, we're invited to drool over the rippling pecs, supple buttocks, and bedroom eyes of game men. It's about time.

Now, without further adieu gorge yourself on ten of the beefiest hunks from the site:

Ben Prunty, Game music composer

Stanlo Slasinski, ArenaNet programmer

Amir Rao, Supergiant Games co-founder

Matthew Wegner, Indie game impresario

David S. Gallant, Game designer

Zach Gage, Game designer

Aaron Contreras, Ubisoft game designer

Brendan Iribe, Oculus VR CEO

Jace Hall, Gaming personality

Josh Mattingly, IndieStatik founder
