Personally I believe that female lead characters in videogames are underrated. While some companies believe that games with female leads would not sell well, there are many examples of excellent games with very intriguing women running the show. Let’s take a look at the top 5 in this category.
5. Ms. Pac-Man
Arguably the original female protagonist. Ms. Pac-man was first released in 1982 and has became one of the world’s most popular arcade games. Although basically the only thing that differentiates her from her male counterpart is some lipstick and a bow, you can’t deny that Ms. Pac-Man started the female protagonist trend. The biggest question of all is why not just name her Pac-Woman?
