Top 5 Female Characters In Video Games

Female characters in video games have increasingly taken on a more dominant and commanding role. It’s hard to imagine now, a good RPG, Action Adventure, or shoot-em up game without a female character. Long gone are the days of Super Mario where you had to save the princess. The proverbial princess has now come into her own and needs no saving.

Seems Samus Aran is missing from the list. When I think of female video game characters, she's really important to women, as she was really the character that made people see women as a real protagonist in games.

Sorry, but Samus lost a bit of her reputation with other M

Samus and Chun-Li need to be on that list.
Otherwise it's just a fail list IMO.

A top female video game list without...

Samus Aran
Princess Toadstool
Chun Li

...on it is full of fail.

Nariko and Bayonetta (Even though I loved Heavenly Sword) were only in one game. I agree with obviously Lara Croft and Jill Valentine is a good candidate, but the 3 aforementioned + Croft and Valentine have stood the test of time and been in the biggest franchises of their genres.

Maybe this is a list written by a teenager that has only been around for this gen and last?

Maiden in Black (demons souls) f*cking LOVE that sexy accent

Juri Han (ssf4)

Jade (Beyond Good & Evil)

Alma (F.E.A.R)

5TH is still up for grabs

She's female. Other than that, what makes her an interesting character?

guitarded771826d ago

@ Sony360

The title of the article is "Top 5 Female Characters In Video Games"... not "The Most Interesting Women In Video Games". That sais, here is why Samus is a must have.

I'm guessing you're young and don't know that Samus was the game that made a female into a strong protagonist... every other female lead in games is riding the wave that she started. In the first Metroid (NES) most played through the game thinking they were a bad ass super soldier, but when they beat the game, they were shocked to find out the hero was a woman the whole time.

Samus has done more for other women in gaming than any single character EVER. So "what makes her so interesting?" you ask... well, that kinda does.

1. Alyx Vance - Half Life 2
2. Samus Aran - Metroid (First Kick but Female
3. Chun Li - Street Fighter 2 ( toughest chick EVER)
4. Sarah Kerrigan (Queen of Blades in Starcraft and the Ultimate Evil "C" word that rhymes with Blunt)
5. Nariko - Heavenly Sword ( Chose her over Lara Croft cause Nariko knew she would die but used the Heavenly Sword anyway)

I just hope you know Mileena was in MK before 9 >.>

omarzy1826d ago

Where is Samus? The original bad ass female.

X-Factor1826d ago

Wow. Not including Samus was the biggest goof...unless she's in the Top 10 List. One could argue she would be in the top 10 but not in the top 5. One could also get one's head bashed in for saying that... :-)
