Pixelitis Picks: Our most beloved videogame heroines

"Lara Croft is one of the most iconic videogame heroines there is, and her reboot hit shelves this past Tuesday. That got us thinking here at Pixelitis: videogame heroines are few and far between.

Think about it: Nintendo's most popular characters, Mario and Link, are both male, the Xbox 360 is headlined by the masculine Master Chief and Marcus Fenix and Sony flaunts Nathan Drake and Kratos. Zelda, Cortana and Elena Fischer are all great characters in their own regard, but it's obvious that these women are overshadowed by their male counterparts.

Between this fact and Lara Croft's return to gaming, we thought it would be a perfect opportunity for highlighting our favorite videogame heroines, and what makes them so damn awesome – aside from their physical features, of course."

The Boss is definitely one of the all time best game related female characters.

She actually gained a lot of popularity with gamers without needing to have huge breasts and a skimpy out fit, MGS3 went a long to proving not gamers are prepubescent morons.
