Please refer to the Suggested Style Guide (discussion is welcome).

This is a list of video games with female protagonists. Games included on the list are ones where the primary protagonist or co-protagonist is female.

It should be duly noted that the (co-)protagonist is the character that drives the game's story/scenario. The intention of this list is to point out those games that are driven by a female character, as this is a notable exception to the norm. Games that have minor female characters incidental to the plot/scenario should not be included.

That being said, the following types of games should not be included:

  1. All role-playing games. Most, if not all RPGs allow you to select the gender of the character. Otherwise, most all RPGs shall be listed, which would undermine the purpose of this list. An extremely rare exception would be where you are only given the option of a female character.
  2. Games where male and female characters are freely interchangeable (i.e. selected at game start) without any noticeable deviation in gameplay.

Nevertheless, games with male and female co-protagonists should be included if:

  1. Male and female scenarios are notably different; and/or
  2. Play forcibly switches between male and female characters thereby giving the female a rigid plot arc.
