The best female characters in gaming

Goozernation takes a look at some of the top female video game characters in the last 20 years or so. Characters like Samus, Princess Zelda, Jill Valentine as well as a few others made the list. The big question is why did these ladies make the "best of" list, and why? (GameCube, Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light, Mass Effect, Mass Effect 2, PS3, Resident Evil 5, Resident Evil Code: Veronica, Super Smash Bros. Brawl, The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, Wii, Xbox 360)

Let me guess:Other M changed your mind? Come on, man. You can't let one game suddenly rewrite history to all the other games that showed otherwise to Samus' persona.

I just wish gamers would see game characters and franchises for what they are, not how good or bad the latest game did based on critical and/or gamer impressions.

I can agree with that one. Man, I need to finish that game! -_-

Samsus will always be the best

Lara Croft!

Can't think of anyone more iconic.

Yes Samus is in the Metroid series but I don't think that everyone knows about her. I didn't find out about Metroid at all until just a few years ago. But mention Tomb Raider to anyone and they would know who Lara is in an instant.

Lara Croft to best female character is what J.K. Rowling to Thriller is.

wait you never played metoid and you think its crap? now tell me how does that makes sence so your even less of a gamer then i though tomb raider sucks ive played it u cant even move right its one of the worst games i have actully played the only game to get that style of gameplay right was uncharted while tomb raide still seems toplay like a playstaion one game even when it his ps2 and ps3 an dont know about the new one but yet so i cant say all i can say is that lara never did anything cool and nerd? um your confusing neerd with geeks smart 1 yup im a geek all gamers are thats a fact just like they are sports geeks car geeks maybe you should use the right words? u been playing ever since the 80's and just herd of metroid? uh huh right those who agree with u are dumb just like u cus i rember a bunch of metorid adds back in the 90's oh and FYI samus is more popular then lara just to let you

Not a gamer?? Hahahahaha, that was a funny one. I'm a gamer since the late 80's but that doesn't mean that I play every single game or every single system out there. To be honest, I think Metroid is shit. Also, whatever crap you just said there makes you look like a nerd who has no life. I'll put my money on Lara Croft over this Samus thing any day.

I like Chloe from Uncharted. Mainly for her bum and Claudia Blacks voice.

Lara clearly wins though.

So many iconic performances by female characters in video games. GlaDOS, Bayonetta, Big Sisters, The Boss..
