Top Five Female Protagonist in Gaming History

For years women in gaming have been taking a subtle back seat to the lime light in respect to gaming, while holding relevance in story line or stature in character. The female protagonist didn't really start to take flight until Tomb Raider, but since then the gaming industry has seen a strong occurrence of kick ass women in gaming, some titles perhaps you haven't even heard of.

@ Raz

Since when does an honorable mention ever get made a thumbnail elsewhere

@ Full

Lmao you’re also a hardcore Velvet fan I take it

Razzer235d ago (Edited 235d ago )

I don’t know man. Maybe cuz she is hotter than the others? Seems to work for cheatcc.

FallenAngel1984235d ago

But here you only see her beautiful face in the thumbnail and not even her attire.

Even though I despise them for shortchanging her like this, I can’t blame them for promoting her alluring steely gaze.

Am I the only one to notice the person who posted this article actually had the nerve to link a Wikipedia page that just blatantly lists female videogame characters with no particular criteria?

"..for years women in gaming have been taking a subtle back seat to the lime light in respect to gaming..."

um, let's see: Samus Aran, Aya Brea Jill Valentine, Claire Redfield, Hana Tsu-Vachel, Joanna Dark, Laura (D1, D2, Enemy Zero), Jennifer Simpson & Helen Maxwell (Clock Tower), Heather Mason, Alice (American McGee's Alice), Rubi (WET), and the list goes on and on.

women take anything but a backseat when it comes to gaming. for YEARS, strong female leads were a thing in gaming.

I agree with some of this list (seriously Capcom, please bring back Jill), but it seems that the author only plays the most mainstream of games. Of all time becomes more and more difficult to justify as time progresses anyways. Besides, entire genres like JRPGs typically include at least three solid female protagonists (give or take). It's not just JRPGs either. The original Mass Effect Trilogy has more than 5 solid female leads, and that's without including Jane Shepard. The Resident Evil series itself could round out a top five female characters list.
