TA Top Five: Female Protagonists

  • Posted on 16 August 15 at 23:27
    Including Clementine, Aurora, and Femshep (especially femshep, can't imagine playing Mass Effect as a dude) in this list seems appropriate, very nice choices. These other ladies also come to mind:

    Alice from Alice: Madness Returns. Seriously, when you can fight insanity with a pepper grinder and a tea pot, you know shite is getting real...

    ...and Claire Redfield from RE: Code Veronica and RE: Revelations 2. She's a tough person that handled some pretty ugly situations and still came out on top. The same could be said of Jill Valentine, too.

    I think Clem as #1 is a great choice. While it is true that she is basically guided through the story (as, in all reality, all characters are), she is able to handle herself. Having just finished the bridge in Season 2, Episode 2, I get a good sense of how she has grown as a character from Season 1.

    I played through the entire Mass Effect Series as both male and female, and in my opinion FEMSHEP is by far the better character and I would definitely keep her on this list. It is a choice to pick a gender, but that doesn't mean they are equal. I didn't seem to notice any characterization from Borderlands to include them, but it may have been something I missed.

    Lara Croft from the reboot....absolutely awesome!

    - Sheva Alomar
    Clementine annoyed you but Sheva didn't? She is easily the stupidest AI in the resident evil series.

    Basically when it's hard to see the hair it looks more boyish or at least gender ambiguous.
    The season two poster? You saw screens of this but never the first? Haha anyway, I don't wanna detract from my own article. I could've never mistaken her for a boy, and even if I did, she is very much a young girl and belongs on this list for me. To each their own, as they say.

    The Sharkopath said:No Anya (Gears of War series)?Would've been nice but Anya isn't really that much of a badass. She get's overshadowed easily. She was also really only in like half a game since the campaign was split between marcus/dom and cole/baird.

    I played as Sheva whenever I had the chance so the AI was the guy - I also separate the character from the AI those are two different things.
    Life, it's funny that way.

    WHAT!? You don't like Carl either.....do you have a step child you hate or something? LOL!

    I'm curious to see if the teens on fear the walking dead will bother you as well. They look maybe 16-17

    Tripitaka from Enslaved: Odyssey to the West could also be considered. She's not the character you play, but she is there pretty much the whole time and integral to it.
