Xfire opines: "There was a time in video games where female characters were just delicate princesses, a damsel in distress, and had to be saved by a hero. I'm looking at you, Super Mario Bros and Legend of Zelda. If not a damsel in distress, they were served as eye candy to please the male-dominant gaming space.
But ever since then, video games have come a long way. The new-age video games have witnessed the emergence of heroines who aren't delicates damsels in distress. Heck, even Princess Peach and Princess Zelda have developed so well as independent characters in their universe.
Today, in the spirit of International Women's Day, we're celebrating the most badass video game heroines."
