So the other day I thought about females in games that I’ve played over the years that I really like and thought it would be fun to do a list. There aren’t any special order to them, these are characters who have stood out to me as I’ve played the games. There are both protagonists, side characters and “antagonists”.
Vote for the one that you prefer in the poll at the bottom.
1: Trip, the tech knowledgeable girl from Enslaved: Odyssey to the West. She is smart, a tech wiz, not a damsel and sexy as hell. Those eyes are hard to resist.
2: Ravel, the deep, many sided riddle that we all love. Ravel from Planescape: Torment have made me think, wonder and be amazed over all the sides of humans.
3: Commander Shepard, the ass kicking, space traveling hero that we all know and love in Mass Effect, especially the female voice by Jennifer Hale.
4: Triss Merigold, the feisty redhead that keeps Geralt, The Witcher, in line, and what a beautiful redhead at that.
5: Aribeth de Tylmarande, the half-elf that has one of the more extreme character arcs I’ve ever seen in any game, coming from Neverwinter Nights.
6: Qara, another redhead that let’s her passion and attitude get the better of the situation, her nicknaming is epic and it is never boring to have her around in Neverwinter Nights 2.
7: Zoë Maya Castillo, the sweet and caring young woman that, in her search for her boyfriend, ends up in completely different places in Dreamfall: The Longest Journey.
8: Jennifer Tate, the fact that she has many demonic sides of herself makes her an real badass woman in Primal, teaming up with Scree, they’re a very lovable team.
9: Jeanette/Therese Voerman, the vampiric sisters of madness themselves, Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines wouldn’t be anything without them.
10: Carla Valenti, the smart cop, dealing with the mysterious happenings in Fahrenheit/Indigo Prophecy, is one that you do not fool. The game portrays her really well.
