This so much, sure she is dead after the original but i remember NT saying "Dying is not the end of the story in HS universe", damm and that sounded like a sequel.

On topic, as long as the player character isnt meant to represent the player (RPGs for example) i cant play as female, role playing isnt really the same without an avatar that match your gender.

I dont mind playing TR because Lara is meant to be her own character.

Some of my favorite female characters were from Persona. If u wan't a JRPG with great female characters that are believable (have strengths and weaknesses), check out Persona 3 and 4. Chie, Yukiko, Mituru, Yukari, Aigis, etc (you'll learn who they are if u play) are some of the most memorable characters ever, of any gender.

You forgot P1&P2 Mary (P1 most important character and according to Igor the strongest Persona user), Elly , Lisa Silverman, Ulala Serizawa and Maya Amano (Protagonist of Persona 2 Eternal Punishment) are the best females in the series.

I'll take the persona characters over most of the other female video game characters we have in other games. Mitsuru <3

All for it.
I just hope that they employ some talented female writers to make or consult with over over the characterizations.

Not saying that a man can't write believable woman character but I think with the extra input in the industry more depth and nuance can be brought to the protagonist.
-And their will be less focus on the sexy polygons.
-an it may make her more identifiable to the growing female gamer Population.

Anyway,
Samus needs 2 to 3 titles just like Mario.
Metroid 3D, Metroid 2D, and a better Other M.

Im all for it but don't place a female protagonist where she doesn't need to be. If she fits the role and it makes sense then by all means let the female protagonist live.

I would love to be able to choose for a female in Battlefield 4 .Even one of the vg models activision just one hope its in the next CoD.
