#1: Ryu Hayabusa (Ninja Gaiden, Dead or Alive)

When it came to choosing our hardest video game ninja, it was impossible to look past Ryu Hayabusa. The character first appeared on the NES in 1989, before being retconned into Tecno’s Dead or Alive series. He has since gone on to appear in a succession or Ninja Gaiden games across the Xbox, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360; culminating in the obscenely bloody Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2.

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.
