The Best (and Worst) Female RPG Characters
This is a topic that myself a good friend, Kimberley Wallace (who is the managing editor over at RPG Fan) have been discussing a lot lately, especially since the Sexism Podcast we did here at RPGamer. Over at the 'Fan they made a list of all their favourite female protagonists. You can see the feature here: http://www.rpgfan.com/features/Best_Female_RPG_Characters/index.html
What do you guys think? I'm personally thrilled to see some classic heroines on the list such as Celes (!), Alis (!!!) and Alys (!!!!!). I'm also thrilled my two personal favourite heroines made the cut (Lenneth and Mitsuru). I also love that Shirley from Tales of the Legendia was listed as one of the worst (but I'm in the camp that agrees that Senel should have picked Chloe). Also FEMSHEP! She'll mess you up, yo!
So what are your thoughts? Who do you think they missed? All that list needed was some of the strong babes from Suikoden (Kika, Elenor, Lucretia, Cleo, Annabelle, I could go on).
Personally though, I like this list a lot. :)
