    Where’s SHANTAE ????



  2. Drew on January 18, 2021 at 5:23 pm

    Why did they not mention Shadow Of The Tomb Raider when it came out two years ago? Also, Lara should’ve been at the top.



  3. Ahmed Al-Ebrashy on January 18, 2021 at 5:24 pm

    There was a fps spy game considered one of the best fps with a woman protoginist, I dont have it currently on mind.



  4. Nichole Howard on January 18, 2021 at 5:25 pm

    Awesome ☝🏼



  5. theryudama on January 18, 2021 at 5:31 pm

    Where’s velvet crowe?



  6. Shaurya Sharma on January 18, 2021 at 5:32 pm

    Lara croft should’ve been on no. 1 according to me, Ada Wong and Faith Connors should’ve been included in honorable mentions + Hey re3 remake trailer was out in 2019 so where’s Jill Valentine?



  7. JESS on January 18, 2021 at 5:32 pm

    Yesss.!!! Couldn’t agree more with #11.!!
    Love Claire Redfield she is the best.!! 😁😁💙



  8. Kx Kross on January 18, 2021 at 5:32 pm

    #1 Claire😊😊♥️♥️



  9. Nichole Howard on January 18, 2021 at 5:33 pm

    😀🤘🏼



  10. abdou Capitain on January 18, 2021 at 5:33 pm

    Lara croft fans drop a like



  11. duxsty duck on January 18, 2021 at 5:33 pm

    Where is the fucking control?



  12. S. B on January 18, 2021 at 5:34 pm

    Jesse Faden from Control.



  13. kee sun on January 18, 2021 at 5:35 pm

    Kassandra



  14. KS on January 18, 2021 at 5:36 pm

    Lara Croft not no 1 = *DOWN*



  15. Zoey Paige on January 18, 2021 at 5:37 pm

    Honorable mention? Kassandra was robbed



  16. MamiMileena on January 18, 2021 at 5:37 pm

    What about faith for mirrors edge👉🏼👈🏼



  17. Wonder Jorge on January 18, 2021 at 5:38 pm

    Excellent list, I think my favorite is Bayonetta but there’s a lot of likable characters in this list.



  18. SubFlow22 on January 18, 2021 at 5:39 pm

    Sweet, 10 more games to scratch off the list. Done with being force-fed unbelievable female protagonists in modern games.



  19. Yussnan84 on January 18, 2021 at 5:40 pm

    No Ellie from overrated of us, nice, very nice.



  20. vertigoshock peep on January 18, 2021 at 5:41 pm

    I don’t know why but I feel like most games have female leads?



  21. JP MB on January 18, 2021 at 5:44 pm

    Lara Croft should’ve been #1, she was the 1st true female lead and paved the way for all the other females on and out of this list



  22. DaBoiJ on January 18, 2021 at 5:44 pm

    I’m surprised Kate Diaz from Gears 5 ain’t make it! And Jessi from Control!!



  23. VSarena on January 18, 2021 at 5:47 pm

    I am playing mk nowadays



  24. PsycoRulez on January 18, 2021 at 5:48 pm

    Now we can change first position… Ellie is here.



  25. PsycoRulez on January 18, 2021 at 5:49 pm

    All when see this video: Wow!
    Ellie: Pffff…



  26. cactusbutter on January 18, 2021 at 5:54 pm

    where the hell is samus?



  27. lady Worrior on January 18, 2021 at 5:55 pm

    My favorite is Ellie



  28. kevin bangs on January 18, 2021 at 5:55 pm

    What to play: Nier atomata is made by "I just like girls".

    Me: uhuh…😏



  29. Riley Groleau on January 18, 2021 at 5:56 pm

    Not even ONE mention of Ellie from The Last of Us: Part 2, so disappointing ;-;



  30. Diana Danilevskaya on January 18, 2021 at 5:59 pm

    How about "Prey" (2017)?



  31. Vinicius Almeida Poço on January 18, 2021 at 5:59 pm

    2B ❤️



  32. Shashwat Verma on January 18, 2021 at 6:01 pm

    This Female List is Good …..😊
    But My and All Time Top Favorites are
    1st – Lara Croft (Tomb Raider)
    2nd – Ada Wong (Resident Evil)
    3rd – Sarah Kerrigen (Star Craft 2)
    4th – Amanda Ripley (Alien Isolation)



  33. Bordo bordo on January 18, 2021 at 6:03 pm

    Im here to make sure that Clem is here



  34. Alessandro Spagnuolo on January 18, 2021 at 6:04 pm

    I like this list a lot, but I don’t think 2B should be there: she’s not the real protagonist of Nier:Automata.
    You were also using footage of A2.



  35. BananaBerry on January 18, 2021 at 6:06 pm

    Aloy should have been first



  36. Elisei Danciu on January 18, 2021 at 6:08 pm

    Who tf wakes up in the morning and thinks "Man… I really feel like playing a game with a female/male lead" ?



  37. Marty Wittenberg on January 18, 2021 at 6:12 pm

    We have not seen a game yet on more recent consoles but i would sure like to see how they would do Rayne from Bloodrayne. Vampire,Sas and bloodlust all rolled into one and sexy to boot. I hope some developer considers that into making. Also voiced by Laura Bailey at the time. And she made her rock.



  38. Bhavya Vardhan on January 18, 2021 at 6:14 pm

    Hellblade will still be my best pc game ever played



  39. Volition Iskey on January 18, 2021 at 6:15 pm

    This video could do without the atrocious commentary.



  40. Otávio Módolo on January 18, 2021 at 6:16 pm

    Sorry… Estelle Bright is the best female lead character period.



  41. Bhavya Vardhan on January 18, 2021 at 6:17 pm

    Nice to see max(life is strange) in this series



  42. Chandan Ramteke on January 18, 2021 at 6:18 pm

    Life is strange also has Maxine Caulfield as female protagonist.



  43. Acidrain82 on January 18, 2021 at 6:18 pm

    Life Is Strange- Max Caulfield(2015)
    Horizon: Zero Dawn-Aloy (2017)
    The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt- Ciri(2015)
    Rise of the Tomb Raider-Lara croft(2015)
    uncharted: lost legacy Chloe(2017)
    Assassin’s creed: odyssey- Kassandra(2018)



  44. whatoplay on January 18, 2021 at 6:19 pm

    Who do you think as the best candidate for the most influential female-lead in video-gaming?



  45. Viola Oliver on January 18, 2021 at 6:20 pm

    XXXXX



  46. V on January 18, 2021 at 6:20 pm

    Miriam from Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night should have made the list with the PS4 version having a score of 8.88.



  47. PlayStation Psycho on January 18, 2021 at 6:20 pm

    I love a female lead



  48. Asif Al Rahman on January 18, 2021 at 6:21 pm

    Re 3 remake



  49. VOAxInsanity on January 18, 2021 at 6:21 pm

    I don’t see Control on this list, so that means something is definitely wrong.



  50. John Mihopoulos on January 18, 2021 at 6:22 pm

    A plague tale is a masterpiece
