    Yay for Malon! \o/ I always had such a crush on her as a kid. >.<'

    I actually made a 9x9 of mah favourite video game ladies, so I'll post a thumb of that:


    (I'd perhaps replace Maria with Heather Mason on there now, though.)

    If I had to rank my top 5 from that selection, I suppose it'd probably be:

    1. Sylvanas
    2. Sniper Wolf
    3. Cortana
    4. Tali
    5. EVA

    No particular order.

    I think it's worrying that I'm picking mostly ambiguous females, but whatever:

    Kazooie (Banjo Kazooie)

    Kazooie is a great counterpoint to the dimmer Banjo, but doesn't come across as overly mean to him as you'd expect of a wise/dumb combo- but she has got a lot of sarcasm for other characters. A funny and feisty character.

    GLADOS (Portal)

    Already a great sociopathic robot with excellent lines, but her femininty becomes even more pronounced in Portal 2, making her almost sympathetic and humane.

    Diana (Hitman series)

    I really like the voice actress, she makes Diana seem practical and businesslike but with some humour. She is a good counterpoint to the slightly OTT genetically engineered barcode bald headed assassin in that she sounds like she has a warm but professional relationship to the character, making the game feel more realistic and relatable in spite of the oddities.

    Tetra - Wind Waker.

    It's nice to have an alter-ego character with a bit more personality and less mystery than in other Zelda games. The link (excuse this worthless pun) is less obvious than in Skyward Sword as well.

    Pauline - Donkey Kong (GB)

    This is a pretty weak choice I know, an undeveloped damsel in distress. But it made a change from saving Princess Toadstool in her pink dresses, and showing that Mario had a real woman to go after rather than some ineffectual fairytale character.

    Ehh, don't really have a top 5, but Samus easily takes this. Why? Because she simply shuts up and gets business done. She's so badass she doesn't even need to utter a word. On top of that she has one mother fucking cool suit. Now in Metroid Other M she was of course a pain in the ass because they turned her into a whiny bitch, thanks Sakamoto, so I won't count that. In all other games she simply blasts everything to pieces, even planets, and still holds it cool. Plus, she has the best games ever made.

    Much of the time I simply find girls in video games annoying because the creators tend to make them whiny or be the ones who needs saving, which is why I can't provide a top 5. Samus says fuck that and goes on to become one of gaming's biggest badasses, which is why I feel the need to mention her in this thread, she broke the barrier.

    That's because most games are made by males, for males.

    The reason I listed the protagonists from TLJ series is because they're strong, independent, and intelligent. They don't serve as support or foils to any other characters. Ragnar Tornquist knows how to write female characters. He did a great job with The Secret World's major female characters, too. Hemitneter was especially awesome.

    Edit: Here's the cutscene where Hemitneter gets tired of everyone's shit and decides to take action. She eventually joins you in her human form and commences to fuck shit up with you.

    I have 6, so it's a really hard choice to remove 1. I also won't number them cause I don't like them in any particular order.



    Honorable mention.

    No particular order.
    Sheena - Tales of Symphonia

    She bind elemental bosses and summon them once she's taken enough damage. Besides that, I always liked her little fox companion.

    Collete, from the same game as above.

    Always clumsy and willing to sacrifice herself for the good of others.

    Black Arachnia, The Broodmother - DotA 1 and 2

    She kicks ass with all her 8 legs.

    Princess Rosalina - Super Mario Galaxy

    Don't know much about her, but I guess this one I like just for the looks.

    Finally, THE PYRO! (?)

    Is it male? Is it female? All I know is that it sets fire to people and can shoot better than most.

    Since this one probably doesn't count, though, I'm adding another one.

    Tali'Zorah nar Rayya/Vas Normandy - Mass Effect 1, 2 and 3

    I've always been curious as to what is her face behind that mask and, even though I already think I know what's behind it, she's still a funny character to listen to, especially considering she still's got her shotgun.
