It took me a while to come up with the list but here you go, my Top Ten Favourite Bad Ass Females in Videos Games.
Take note I’ve never played any Street fighter Story Mode or the original Resident Evils so I thought it would be deceitful to put characters such as Chung Lee or Claire Redfield on this list even thou there popular protagonists. 🎮
10. Maddison Paige
Maybe a controversial choice of characters but I feel Maddison should be on this list. I feel she should be on the list because one, she’s a kick butt reporter who uses her leads to gain clues as to who’s the Origami killer, 2. The extremes she goes to when trying to get these clues such as dressing provocatively to get the club owners attention and nearly being raped to being tied up in an old mans basement and needing to escape. If played right Maddisons loyalty, courage and detective skills are what make her not just another side character made for the male masses but a well rounded individual who’s fun to play.
- I understand this choice of Heavy Rain will have different outcomes and memories for each individual who played the game and each ending will be different based on the decisions made throughout.
8. Alice Liddell
I have always had a fascination with Alice in wonderland since I was a young girl and when I discovered American Mcgees Alice I had to play it and convinced my dad to get me it, this was nearly 10 years ago.
This game is dark and Gothic and shows a dramatised, ominous impression of failing mental health.
Alice is an extremely strong character, we physically see her demons and her battle to gain her sanity and all seems well in the end until repressed memories force Alice to escape once again to wonderland.
The games potray a girl desperately trying to overcome her own flaws and illness whilst trying to survive in a society that doesn’t understand or treat the mentally unwell with any shred of decency. Even when she’s not in wonderland living in Victorian London after her time in the Assylum is pretty bad ass 👌.
Jade is a photographer who joins a group of rebels called Iris who are hell bent on taking down the evil alpha section.
Sporting a mostly green outfit, with short hair and and camera jade doesn’t look like your average female protagonist instead looking more tomboy-ish. She almost single handily took down the alpha section with her photography and wit rather than brute strength, although her fighting with a bow staff was pretty awesome.
Clem had to grow up quickly she’s thrust into a world with flesh eating walkers and no family or guardians able to take care of her until Lee steps up and protects her. When certain circumstances happen she finds herself alone and trying to survive in this now adult world. Her cunning, gun training and size show time and time again why she’s a survivor.
5. Lara Croft
Lara Croft would be higher on this list if I had played more of her games, I was very young when they were first released, she is an extraordinary leading woman and has her own franchise and is an extremely well known character and her games are seen in high regards.
For the 90s I’d said Lara Croft was revolutinary for female representation in video games.
4. Elizabeth Comstock
Get you a girl who can do both spring to mind? Elizabeth is such a cute character and at the beginning seems whimsical and blissfully ignorant of the disturbing city of Colombia she now finds herself in.
Elizabeth was locked in a tower with the song bird being her friend and protector, there she was being held by Comstock as his only heir and there she practised making her tears (wripping tears in alternate realities and the time lines which is pretty bad ass if I do say so myself).
In the Burried at Sea DLC this new alternate Elizabeth is a pretty mysterious, dark dame she’s almost unrecognisable with her attitude and behaviour. She manages to look after herself and does makes some pretty hard calls. She’s one serious bad ass lady who isnt one to be tolled with.
3. Ellie Williams
Ellie is one bad ass teenage girl, she’s one very lucky kid considering she’s survived the infection spreading around the world and turning people into fungal zombies. She was bit by one of the infected and has to go on a journey across country with Joel because her immunity could be a break through in finding a cure.
On her way to the fireflies Base she more than proves her ability to survive, she’s almost molested and saves herself, has to look after and defend Joel when he becomes ill and eventually becomes an equal to Joel even with there age gap.
Morrigan is an incredible character and hard to forget with her quick witt and snarky comments she soon had a special place in my heart. Yeah some people might think she’s a evil malicious bitch but she’s fierce and shuts down any crap, a quality I find very endearing.
As one of the daughters of the great mage Flemmeth Morrigan is extremely powerful and capable of shapeshifting, she’s a powerful ally to the Hero or Ferelden.
1. Tali’Zorah Vas Normandy
Tali’Zorah is hands down one of my favourite characters of all time, she’s intelligent, interesting, loyal and hilarious.
Tali along with Garrus is one of the few characters who stays with you throughout the series. When you first meet her Tali is on her pilgrimage, she is the daughter of Rael’Zorah who’s a member of the admiral board and Tali is also exceptionally gifted with engineering which helps the crew out on many occasions.
Tali goes from being exiled from her fleet to then becoming admiral in her father’s place.
Mass effect 3 was a disappointing, heart breaking game but the Citadel DLC was incredible and Tali’s drunken shenanigans will have you laughing out load.
Well there you go guys I hope you enjoyed my Top Ten Favourite Female 💁Video Game Characters🎮, remember this is only my opinions and preferences and everyone’s is intitled to there own ideas because everyone’s and individual 🎤👏
