Here is my list of the top ten most appealing female video game characters.
List of Top 10 Most Appealing Female Video Game Characters of All Time till 2017
10. Lara Croft- “Tomb Raider” series
Usually much higher on lists, I think that Lara deserves a place on these lists, I do not think she deserves the top spot that she is usually given. This is mainly because of the fact that the games are not as strong as they should be for her to get the top spot. Let us not forget that the games are just Indiana Jones with a buxom woman.
9. Alyx Vance- “Half-Life 2”
Even though you cannot play as Alyx in the second “Half-Life” game, you still get to experience a well drawn character. She helps fight against the alien race called Combine and is a close friend to Gordon Freeman in the games she is in.
8. Maiden in Black- “Demon’s Souls”
She is mysterious and blind. It is said that she was once a powerful demon, one of the most powerful in existence. She can harness and manipulate the souls the player has in a great way. She is matron of the Nexus who gives the protagonist quests to different parts of the world called Boletaria and take demon’s souls for power and so that the kingdom in Boletaria can be freed from the clutches of the Old One. Should the player accept, she can even lull the Old One back to sleep; which actually makes her stronger than him.
7. Tali- “Mass Effect” series
A skilled technician and squadmate in all three games of the “Mass Effect” series, Tali is the daughter of quarian judicial review Admiralty Board. She is quarian, a nomadic alien race who was driven from their homeland. The quarian have a weaker immune system, which is why she wears the suit all the time. The suit also serves to hide her face and her physical appearance.
6. Lilith- “Borderlands” series
A playable character in the first game, but not in the other games. In the first game, she is one of four players that has her own set of special skills. She is of the Siren class, a group of women with great, unbeliveable powers. She comes from Dionysus, and is one six Sirens. This is one of the Top 10 Most Appealing Female Video Game Characters of All Time till 2017.
5. Elizabeth- “BioShock: Infinite”
Sometimes in games, you get stuck with a non-playable character (male or female) that can typically weigh you down. Sometimes, they can make certain sections of the game difficult to pass because they constantly get you killed. There was a part in the first “BioShock” game where you have to dress as a Big Daddy and take a little sister through parts without dying. That was the hardest part of that game, but luckily in the third installment, she has the ability to help the player get through sections in the game and take care of herself. Elizabeth has the ability to tear holes in the fabric of reality. She was so great in the game, she has a starring role in “Burial At Sea”.
4. Chun li- “Street Fighter” series
The first ever playable female character in a fighting game, Chun li appeared in the second “Street Fighter” game as an undercover agent trying to avenge the death of her father at the hands of a criminal. She is known for wearing brown tights, blue qipao, white boots, hair in ox horns, and her very muscular legs and arms.
3. Bayonetta- “Bayonetta” series
Bayonetta is an Umbra Witch whose hair serves as her outfit and she can transform it into monsters to help her take out the bad guys. She has the Left Eye, which oversees the darkness. Bayonetta (whose real name is Cereza) also has great talents in Bullet Arts. Her outfits and glasses, not to mention her sexuality, help make people place her on lists of the best heroes. The way she acts goes against many different conventions in games for women.
2. Jill Valentine- “Resident Evil” series
She is a member of a US special police unit called STARS and when you first meet her, she is trapped in a mansion. She appears in many of the games of the series, and even some of the movies. Jill appears on lists of popular video game characters of all time and is always referred to as a strong woman who is smart and sexy at the same time.
1. Samus Aran- “Metroid” series and “Metroid Prime” series
Why does Samus get the top spot? Well, because she has a long legacy of being in great games and kicking a lot of alien butt and having cool suits and weapons. Some of Samus’s games are the most violent things that Nintendo, a normally rated Everyone or Teen rated company, has to offer. In the first “Metroid” game, many gamers were surprised when they finished the game and found out that they had been playing as a tough (and shapely) chick the whole time.
