The most important female characters in video games (Part 1)
After our first installment of PC Games history (Water effects in Games), now the female characters in games strike back.
PCGH takes a look back to 25 years of history: Women as leading characters in games, women as a enjoyable sidekicks and now even real models like in the NfS series. From Ms. Pacman and Laverne to Lara and Alyx: You will find 62 candidates in our gallery.
The staff at PCGH tried to make a chronological, almost complete list. We used our own experience in this area, but we also took a look at the internet. Especially one feature article is noteworthy: The one from tomsgames which focussed more on the console part. Our main focus was the PC area.
Some characters have two entries in the list. If so, we thought that this woman deserves a second apprearance. As for the pictures: We really tried to get historical images but sometimes we were forced to use newer material.
So why is this part 1? As we learned from our water effects special, there is no final list with the first try. So please leave a comment under "Alle Kommentare lesen" and then "Anworten", if you miss your favourite female character.
Have some great time with this totally subjective warp through 25 years of video games history.
