 Kate Walker from Syberia is one of the lesser-well-known characters in our list, but her story and strength of character sees her at number 2. 

2: Kate Walker from Syberia

 

Kate Walker from Syberia is a lawyer who is assigned a mission to France to oversee the financial take-over of a company. She soon gets more than she expected, however, as she is caught up in the mythology of the island of Syberia.

Kate Walker is the quintessential intelligent female games protagonist, solving puzzles and problems as she investigates Syberia. She’s also a great resource gatherer, gathering information important to her case.

Kate Walker also stars in the sequel Syberia 2, which follows the same basic formula as its predeccesor.

 

  Bayonetta is the most empowered of all female games characters and number 1 in our list of the best female games protagonists of all time.  

1 Bayonetta, The Best Female Games Protagonist

In our list of the best female games protagonists we’ve covered all sorts of characters. Some were intelligent, like Kate Walker from syberia. Some were brave, like Lara Croft in Tomb Raider. Others were kind, like Jade from Beyond Good & Evil. Bayonetta, however, is an extremely powerful, ass kicking machine.

Why is Bayonetta number one in our list? Because she, above all other female games characters, show that women can be just as powerful as men. Bayonetta could easily compete with the likes of Master Chief, Dante and Ryu. She is the strongest female in the history of gaming and deserves her place at number one in this list. Besides, if we didn’t give Bayonetta this award, she’d probably kick our asses.
