While some video game developers cough, Ubisoftcough have demonstrated an aversion to putting female characters in the lead role of big-budget videogames, a of top-selling games have celebrated their female protagonists.

In Horizon: Zero Dawn, a girl named Aloy is born into a beautiful land populated with an intricate ecosystem of robot dinosaurs. When adventure calls, she embarks to conquer the wilderness, discover herself, and uncover the mysteries of the past. She's a well-written and well-voice-acted character who dodges unnecessary sexualization, and the game she stars in is worth every minute.

The Metroid series is longrunning—since its inception into 's super-popular Super Metroid, to Metroid Prime 4 probably coming out the end of this year, a constant through it all is the protagonist Samus Aran.
She's a spacefaring bounty hunter in a high-tech metal suit and endures as one of the most iconic characters in gaming. Assassin's Creed Odyssey was a smash hit. Set in the historical playground of the ancient Mediterranean, Odyssey lets you pick your protagonist from Kassandra and her brother Alexios—both tough-as-nails Spartan soldiers. While the game's story suffers from a lack of specificity since it needs to accomodate either Kassandra or AlexiosKassandra seems to indicate a new trend for Ubisoft.

The Last of Us: Part II released this year as the hotly-anticipated sequel to Sony's flagship apocalypse-survival game.

Lara Croft of Tomb Raider fame has been around in some capacity since when technological limitations meant an unfortunately small of polygons where used for her character model. Then, inthe series had a reboot starring a younger Lara supported by more powerful graphics. Through all iterations, Lara Croft remains a resilient and cunning adventurer and one of gaming's most recognizable heroines.
She has some decent movies, too, I suppose. Courtesy Platinum Games. The bullet-slinging witch Bayonetta from the games of the same name is bombast incarnate.
Wearing a suit of her own hair with guns on her hands and feet, Bayonetta uses magic and gun-fu to fight legions of celestial and demonic badguys. Bayonetta 1 and 2 play like a high-speed fever dream, all led by the over-the-top sass of the Umbral Witch herself.

Celeste is a beautiful game about a mountain named Celeste and a girl named Madeline who sets off to climb it. Madeline jumps and climbs with very responsive controls as she learns about overcoming personal challenges and making meaningful friends.
Celeste made waves as an independent game and remains a classic for those looking to try out an indie studio product. Surely, many great heroines have been left of this list. Leave a comment with your submissions! Have you played any of these? Who is the most iconic woman in gaming?
