Who is your favourite woman in gaming?

I haven’t even played the metroid games and I think she’s dope as fuck lol. Very iconic for sure. Also, Zero Samus, that’s all I gotta say.

It’s always been Lara Croft ever since I was a child. Pretty much one of the reasons I love playing video games.

No doubt, Samus Aran.


If we’re talking real women, then that list becomes quite long for me and I know I’ll forget dozens upon dozens, but here’s a few that are incredible:

  • Bonnie Ross
  • Kiki Wolfkill
  • Amy Hennig
  • Kate Raynor
  • Sarah Bond
  • Shannon Loftis
  • Jade Raymond
  • Kim Swift
  • Louise O’Connor

These women, and so many more, own their roles (as diverse as they are) and bring a much-needed diversity to the industry. It cannot be overstated how many more obstacles are present systemically for women, people of color, and the LGBTQ+ community, so it’s a wonderful sight when these awesome people succeed in spite of adversity.

Agreed 100%. we were discussing similar sentiment earlier on discord. Its only a step but its wonderful to see so many getting into positions to create the change in diversity that the industry sorely needs.
