There’s no debating it, the games industry (or the media as a whole, if we’re being honest) doesn’t have the best track record when it comes to female representation. Characters are often designed as men by default just because and plenty of female characters are designed as flailing boob monsters whose goal in life is to titillate the male audience. Like I said; things aren’t great.
The tides are turning though, as those in charge of our games are finally wising up to the fact that half of their audience is female and that featuring playable female protagonists isn’t going to decimate their sales. The PS4 has been the host to a small but brilliant group of female-led games ever since it launched in 2013, so to highlight some of those, I’ve put together this list.
