Many of the best games of the year just so happened to feature some awesome women characters. It not just talking about the prototypical strong woman character although we love them and you will find a few of them are on this list as well, but an assortment of leading ladies who were interesting, fun to inhabit and ultimately human.
Given is the list of the best girl characters potrayed in video games.
Lara Croft from Rise of the Tomb Raider
Lara Croft. Yes, Lara is every bit the action hero that Nathan Drake is in his own adventures as a strong, badass woman who can climb sheer ice cliffs, hunt big game and mow down rooms of bad guys without breaking a sweat. The Rise of the Tomb Raider is a fine showpiece for Croft, with a perfect mix of action, platforming and heady puzzle-solving.
Ciri from The Witcher 3
The Witcher 3 certainly is not bulletproof in its representation of women. Ciri has Witcher training, despite that particular profession only being open to men. She is treated as a young but capable person with her own agency and reasons for doing things instead of merely a motivating factor for dear old dad.
Evie Frye from Assassin’s Creed Syndicate
Evie Frye was significant not just for her in-game contributions, but as a testament to the industry’s overall push toward diversification. This veritable badass serves as a complement to Jacob, her twin brother and fellow playable lead. Evie is logical; while Jacob favors brawn, Evie is more stealth-oriented.
Undyne from Undertale
Undyne has an interesting trajectory over the course of the story. She starts out as one of your antagonizers, a fish-like monster that comes outfitted with armor and a bloodlust for humans. She is frightening and merciless, and she would not stop pursuing you until you defeat her in battle.
