hey where is Jill ? (og RE1 only) ......probably the most perfect represantation of a female in a video game...attractive hot ,caring , intelligent,dynamic and strong willed without being a ridiculous masculine takeoff of a femenist wet dream (or like every female representation in games developped by western studios ) but instead behaving sentimental toward her partners like every normal human female

Jill is cool but as far as Resi goes I prefer Sheva Alomar.

I would say the representation of any gender is subjective.

I would say the best representation of any character in general would probably be the Joy from Metal Gear Solid 3!!!

This character is as dynamic as I've ever seen.

Aloy is too.

Elissa Steamer-Tony Hawk Pro Skater

Mileena- Mortal Kombat

Orchid- Killer Instinct SNES

Karin- Street Fighter Alpha Max 3 (PSP)

Regina-Dino Crises

Strange comment. If you are not a fan of female character why bother looking at the article and commenting?

Hypothetical bunch of people discussing their favourite piazza's.
1: I like Ham and Pineapple.
2: I like Supreme.
3: I like Margarita.
Nevin 1: Not a fan of pizza. Garlic bread is ok I guess.

Your problem is not female character is it simply how they've been portrayed but that technically can go for any character, my problem is not male characters, it's simply Bad characters in general.

gender is actually irrelevant to your problem.

Might be one of the greatest characters ever presented in a video game.

Elevating the medium tossuch a ridiculously high degree I don't even know if there's a close second right now.

There is no reason why other teams could not deeply Focus their character interactions around something like this.

I usually choose female characters over male where given the option.

Some of my favourites in games are:

Jade - Beyond Good and Evil
Alice Liddel - Alice The Madness Returns
Lara Croft
Emily Kaldwin - Dishonored 2
Amanda Ripley - Alien Isolation
Juliet Starling - Lollipop Chainsaw
Catherine - Catherine
Nilin - Remember Me
Kat - Gravity Rush
Nariko - Heavenly Sword
Ellie - The Last of Us
Elika - Prince of Persia
Dragon Age Inquisition - Female
Mass Effect Trilogy - Female
