GR - "There are lots of games that showcase great female characters, but a game that casts the lead role to a woman without objectifying or sexualizing her is rare." (Culture, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

Samus Aran is the best and will be
SilentNegotiator  +   383d ago
She had better ask Adam if it's okay to be the best, first.
Venox2008  +   382d ago
she is, no matter what that spin off game made her to be, if not she, our galaxy would be no more :)

IMO Kat is my favorite female protagonist! Kat rules!
dafegamer  +   383d ago
Kat is the best Female Protagonist of this gen imo
Y_5150  +   383d ago
I agree, there have been some great female protagonist spawning from this generation. But Kat is the best! Anyone name a better one, it's your opinion just like mine and dafegamer's. :)

Y_5150  +   383d ago

From all the female protagonist in all the years I can think of are Nariko and Kat from Gravity Rush. Those were well crafted and had something others lacked: Personality
Those characters in their respective games actually made me care about them. They weren't oversexualized, they weren't onedimensional, and they acted like normal humans not this Hero Ego/mentality( I mean you always follow one purpose and dont care about others or never show your own emotions)

They're REALLY reaching there with a few of those... Though top 10s are a pretty lame articles anyways since they are completely opinion based so I can see why there wasn't much effort.

I do find it funny that they chose a picture from Other M for Samus, because that was clearly her best role /s.

Surprised Nariko from heavenly sword and kat from gravity rush are not on the list.

Aya Brea .. WHERE IS SHE !?
TuxedoMoon  +   383d ago
The list was looking alright till I saw Lightning at number 1. NOPE! Just NOPE!

There are just several other characters that could easily replace Lightning on that list. All the characters (except for Chell) before her were simply better written and liked. Weren't there a few other female FF protagonists too?

What about Sheppard from Mass Effect? Just because not everyone used the female version, dosen't invalidate the female version as a great protagonist. She was better than many on the list.
