It’s no secret that the vast majority of avid gamers are males from ages six to fifty, more or less. Most video games are made by men and are destined to be bought and played by other men and that’s why in most cases female characters are quite rare in the gaming world. However, there have been quite a few female characters that most (if not all) male gamers love and admire more than some of the greatest and most popular male video game characters such as Nathan Drake (Uncharted), Raiden (Metal Gear) and Solid Snake (Metal Gear), just to name a few. All right, we might be exaggerating a bit there, but here are 25 female video game characters that your average gamer will take his hat off to for one reason or another.

Sam, Gray Matter
Okay, just think about all the magic tricks Criss Angel does in his Las Vegas shows but performed by a sexier and more beautiful (from a guy’s point of view) female videogame character. We just love Sam and no, we don’t care that she’s a fictional digital character.
Alicia Claus, Bullet Witch
Bullet Witch is a shooter video game that every female gamer (there are not many, unfortunately) has played at least once. Why? The protagonist is a stunning witch (a good one) who uses her powers and one of the coolest weapons in videogame history to fight evil demons. What’s there not to love?
Aya Brea, Parasite Eve
Aya Brea has nothing unusual or special going on for her and this is the main reason she’s one of the most beloved female characters of the PlayStation generation, according to IGN and various other polls. Aya is an ordinary-looking girl who loves guns and kicks ass in one of the finest action-survival video games ever made.
Shanoa, Castlevania: Order of Ecclesia
Dark, mysterious, and beautiful, Shanoa is the lead character of this game’s group of characters who attempts to kill Dracula. Shanoa is a fearless chick who won’t let anyone intimidate her, not even the Lord of Darkness, and for that alone we became instant fans from the first time we played Castlevania: Order of Ecclesia.
Faith, Mirror’s Edge
If you’ve watched the epic ‘90s German film Run Lola Run then you probably noticed the obvious influence Lola had on this game’s developers. Faith is dressed just like Lola (thank God she hasn’t dyed her hair red, too, though), she’s athletic and even though she started out as a thief she joined the good guys and now serves as a “Runner” who helps to keep law and order in the problematic society portrayed in Mirror’s Edge.
