Five Favorites: Badass Female Protagonists

Max Level: Late last week, as I browsed through a slew of comments about Ubisoft’s lack of inclusion, I came to subsequent realization that a) I’m tired of arguing about inclusivity, and b) women make the world go ’round. I mean really, without women the entire world would be a grievously less intelligent place; it was also be a frightfully less beautiful place. So why aren’t there more of us in games?

In honor of the badass women who endlessly steal our hearts while beating the living pulp out of the bad guys, this week’s Five Favorites goes out to some of my favorite sassy, classy, and wholly dimensional female protagonists. (Beyond: Two Souls, Culture, Mass Effect, Tomb Raider)

good list, i think i might have put Samus second, but other than that, good choices.

and kudos, for putting it all on one page.
i've had enough of the one paragraph per page crap most sites do these days for lists like this.
