Does anybody know any good games with female protagonists, or where you have the option to play as a female? I wanna get a new game soon and I realised I dont have very many with female characters... I dont like shooters really so nothing like RE, or COD or w/e. I have a PS3, and a DSi. Or even if you know any for older platforms I also have a PS2, Gamecube, and a N64. Or any PC games released before like 2004... So any suggestions?

I was going to recommend WET (http://www.tombraiderforums.com/showthread.php?t=117494), but I don't know if you don't really like shooters. :p

Pandemonium, its old and 2.5D but in both the first and second game you can choose Nikki and it's not a shooter it's a platformer.

It's old though, (PS1)

Maybe try out Broken sword for the PC. You play as 2 characters- one a lovely French woman called Nico Collard. Its a point and click game, but the 3rd one, which is also on PS2, is more adventure-y. Heavy Rain has a female character in, and the game is very exciting and tells a brilliant story. There's a demo on PSN as well.

Yay! I absolutely love the 3rd one- one of my favourite games ever. Heavy Rain has a female character in, and the game is very exciting and tells a brilliant story. There's a demo on PSN as well.

!?:O

Is that one out, or is there gameplay?

Edit: what happened, I'm confused...:p

Bayonetta - GREAT game!
Mirror's Edge
ModNation Racers - You can customize and create your own character(s)
Final Fantasy XIII - If you like RPGS
Dragon Age: Origins - Another GREAT RPG
Heavenly Sword
BloodRayne 1 + 2 - PS2

Beyond Good & Evil - get the GOG.com version so you won't have the nasty surprise of Tages DRM screwing you by not working on 64bit OS :(
Mass Effect 1 & 2 - the female character is voiced by the awesome Jennifer Hale :mis:
BloodRayne 1 & 2
Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic 1 & 2 - no voice acting for the player character though
The Longest Journey & Dreamfall: The Longest Journey - if you like adventure games
Syberia 1 & 2
Portal

Oh man where do I begin? Bayonetta, Wet, Mirror's Edge, Final Fantasy XIII and Final Fantasy X-2, Oblivion, Dragon Age, Mass Effect 1 and 2, Beyond Good and Evil, Fallout 3, Saints Row 2, Parasite Eve, Malice, White Knight Chronicles, Neverwinter Nights, Star Wars; Knights of the Old Republic, Baldur's Gate series, Jade Empire, Bulletwitch, Heavenly Sword, the Valkyrie Profile series, oh and that horrid Charlie's Angels PS2 Game. :D

Star Ocean: The Last Hope and Resonance of Fate have female leads too, these are the ones I currently know of. I'm sure Castlevania has one.

One game, Perfect Dark - This was seriously, in my opinion the best N64 game back in the day, and even now people still play it, if you had a 360 I would have recommended the XBLA version. You need to go out and get this, you will love the game and the story, everyone else who played it did. :p

-Yeah, Perfect Dark X360 XBLA version is cool, but it's a first person shooter too, way better than the dodgy N64 version.
-Primal, excellent game on PS2.
-Drakan, on PS2, very cool.
-Fear Effect 1&2, weird games on PS1, but still high standard.
-Silent Hill 3 of course.
-Haunting Ground, high production standards, PS2.
-Koudelka, excellent RPG on PS1.
-FF X-2, 3 females, what more could you ask for.
-Dead or Alive, on PS2 for example.
-Alias, already mentioned before. A sexy game.
-Dark Angel, PS2.
-Stolen, PS2
-WET, X360/PS3
-Bayonetta, X360/PS3.
-Bullet Witch, X360.
-Bloodrayne, PS2.

Many more of course.

the only way you can play as a female in uncharted is to do a skin swap, and you have to beat the game first. :p

Of the top of my head I can think of Bayonetta and most of the Tomb Raider series. They are the very best. Other games you could also look at are Wet, Beyond Good & Evil and the Resident Evil games ussually star at least one female playable character.
