Female Protagonist Games That I’m Looking Forward to Play

With so many titles coming out this year very few offer a female protagonist to lead the player through extraordinary adventures.

This list is limited the developers of these glorious commodities promise to deliver some of the most impressive experiences of 2013. (Beyond: Two Souls, Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII, PC, PS3, Remember Me, Tomb Raider 2013, Xbox 360)

It's sad that this list has to be so short.

What about Bayonetta 2?

I don't know when it's releasing.

No one knows when Beyond is releasing either.

Beyonetta 2,
Mirrors Edge 2,
Beyond Good and Evil 2,
Heavenly Sword 2,
Starcraft 2 Heart of the Swarm

are the ones I'm looking forward to playing with a female Protagonist. (Lots of 2's LOL)

Tomb Raider and Beyond Two Souls is too much QTE for me!

Any idea when Mirrors Edge 2 coming? I love the first one.

Alternately, this article could be titled, "Women Whose Asses I'm Looking Forward to Staring At for Hours."

I know, not very sensitive. :(

I don't really disagree with you. Although I don't really care, as long as the story is good, I tend to create female characters in games because I'd rather view something pleasing to my eye over the next hundred or so hours.

So when it comes to games like DC Universe, Dragon Age, and White Knight Chronicles, my characters are female more often than not. When I play Uncharted online, I choose Chloe or Elena(but mostly Chloe... mmm, Claudia Black...).

But I'm not gonna NOT play a game because a character isn't female, nor am I more likely to play a game because a character IS female.

Which, thinking about it, sorta makes this article pointless, in my eyes. I play good games; damn the gender.

... except when I want something to look at.

who cares if it female or male?

Every minority group wants more representation in society; it's human nature.

Just like how you'll occasionally see an article claiming there aren't enough Hispanic videogame characters, or those of African descent, or homosexual, or whatever isn't (in North America, anyway) a heterosexual caucasian male.
