Gotta love female game characters, the Guardian has put together a list of 30 of the most 'interesting female characters'. 

I'm ashamed to say I've only played a fraction of the games, but its always a joy to discover a game which lets you play as a girl (as a female myself) or has a particularly great female character e.g. says more than 1 line. 

A Few of my faves;

Hannah Smith - Her Story, 2015

Rosalind Lutece - Bioshock Infinite, 2013 

Midna - The Twilight Princess, 2006

Tetra - The Wind Waker, 2002
