Hi everyone, I'm currently looking for recommendations for games to try. Platform and genre are not an issue. But, I'd like games with interesting, independent, and progressive-minded main female characters, who are NOT damsels in distress and/or ready to throw herself all over the male lead at first sight. I know there are a lot of games I've never even heard of, so I'd appreciate any suggestions Just to give an idea of what I mean by "interesting" by my standards, here are some examples of those characters: Xiu Ying, Joy - Shenmue 2 (dreamcast) Hana - Fear Effect (psx) Jade - Beyond Good & Evil (xbox1) Nariko, Kai - Heavenly Sword (ps3) Selvaria - Valkyria Chronicles (ps3) Tetra - Legend of Zelda Wind Waker (gamecube) KOS-MOS, Shion - Xenosaga (ps2) Nel, Clair - Star Ocean Til the End of Time (ps2) Lara Croft - Tomb Raider Underworld (xbox360) Liara, Shepard - Mass Effect (xbox360) Aria "Queen of Omega" - Mass Effect 2 (xbox360) Jennifer, Wendy - Rule of Rose (ps2) P.F. the interactive digital assistant - Fragile Dreams (wii) Elena Fisher - Uncharted (ps3) And then examples of characters I'm _not_ impressed with: Fiora - Xenoblade Chronicles Zelda - Skyward Sword so hopefully you see where I draw the line at "damsels in distress" and throwing herself all over the male lead.
