BeefJack presents a round-up of its top 10 most admirable female characters in videogames.
I was right up with you until you got to Bayonetta. I didn't realize "independence" went hand-in-hand with walking around as the manifestation of a sexually deprived, Japanese pervert's imagination.
Rochelle? Seriously? A character who's from a videogame filled with stereotypical characters (overweight african american coach, underage uneducated redneck repairman and a broke gambler) deserves a spot on 10 most admirable heroines? Pfft.
They should have included Uncharted’s Elena, a normal girl but principled, mind of her own, gutsy and easy on the eyes too. And believable, no inflated body parts or superhuman heroics,
Great list outside of heroines outside Rochelle and somewhat Yuna. Yuna is okay but could be an idiot at times. I am definitely a fan of April Ryan. I loved her on TLJ and Dreamfall.
Aya from Parasite Eve. They sexed her up a bit in the sequels, but she's a very strong character in the original. She kicks ass but not so much she feels inhuman, and she shows human weakness without ever seeming like a damsel in distress. That and, for a while, she was the only Square character who's smart enough to just move out of the damn way of an attack.
what...no nariko or faith?
