Who’s Your Favorite Character?
“I like the Luteces' from BioShock Infinite because they are a male/female twin, but they have the
same intelligence. The female is portrayed as smarter and more strategic in her thinking. The male
twin is not above her and they are portrayed as equals because they are equal, not because the
designers thought that there needed to be a female character.”
“Sylvanas Windrunner from WoW. She's a woman in a position of power who led her people
bravely both in life and death. She's also a military strategist… I also like GLaDOS from Portal
for being not only a non-sexualized female robotic character, but also for her witty and sarcastic
personality and complete lack of empathy.”
“Glados because she's smart, witty, funny, entertaining, and just the right amount of evil…”
Natalie and Julia from Harvest Moon: Island of Happiness. They are both strong willed… they both
possess confidence and feminine qualities, smart and pretty (which I feel girls usually aren't
allowed to be even in real life sometimes).
“Ghost for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, cause he was the most skilled soldier I've ever had
the pleasure of virtually serving alongside of, and a great comrade, too. R.I.P. Ghost.”
“Glados from Portal because even though she tries to kill you she still loves you.”
