Games should delight gamers not only with interesting gameplay, but also with attractive characters. Titles in which women play a key role are especially good at this.
We have already talked with you about the most spectacular companions of the main characters of video games, but did not touch on the topic of the protagonists. In the gaming industry there are many beautiful, attractive and interesting heroines who occupied the main place in the plot and at the same time constantly caught the eyes of the players.

Here’s a selection of ten of the most spectacular video game protagonists!
Jill Valentine – Resident Evil
Jill Valentine is as loved by gamers as she is disliked by critics. They regularly scolded this character for predictability, some kind of angular character and especially for her clothes. However, what does it matter if in these outfits Jill looks really cool which is what we need in this TOP.
This heroine has been on the verge of life and death so many times and has escaped so many times that we can safely say – the developers love it. She even contracted the T-virus, but was cured.
Interesting fact: Jill’s incredible appeal is also dictated by her parentage. The girl is half French and half Japanese.

Eloy can be safely called “the beauty of the 21st century”. There are not many defiant details in her image, but at the same time she remains incredibly attractive. Her bright facial expressions, lively animation and plastic movements catch the eyes of gamers for tens of hours.
In addition, Aloy has one incredibly attractive character trait – curiosity. It is this that pushes the girl to not only save her world from defective AI, but also unravel all his secrets.

Even in fully enclosed armor, November looks attractive. She knows how to capture minds not only with her telepathic abilities, but also with the help of incredible inner attraction.
Interesting fact: for the entire existence of the character, Nova has never had an official lover. It seems that this beauty was literally presented to the players!
Windranger – Dota 2
Windranger or Lyralei – a wonderful archer, the most skillful hunter of the forests. She is considered goddaughter of the wind or windrunner for a reason. It is the wind that helps her become as deadly as possible on the battlefield. Once he took pity on the girl, whose family died during a storm, and brought the baby to the doorstep of the nearest village. After that, the wind looked after the girl and helped her in her studies.

Mercy – Overwatch
Mercy (Angel) is one of the Overwatch heroes who wears a special Valkyrie-type costume. Its main goal is heal allies, strengthen their forces on the battlefield, and even resurrect. However, in her attire, Mercy is so beautiful that her main task seems to be to heal souls, not bodies.
The whole look of Mercy is riddled with cute details. For instance, on her costume, the developers placed an inscription from the Hippocratic oath: “Do no harm”… Such little things related to healing and healing can be seen in all her guises.
Interesting fact: Mercy can only be resurrected on the battlefield. Within the framework of her biography, such an ability is not registered. Small omission for the sake of gameplay.
Bayonetta – Bayonetta
If we single out the TOP of the innermost desires of fantasy lovers, then playable witches will stand on the same step with the game as a vampire. That is why the witch Bayonetta has captivated the minds of gamers since 2009. She is beautiful, flexible and incredibly deadly. The main character of the slasher of the same name fights using magic and pistols, and it looks incredibly impressive.
In the game, Bayonetta wakes up without memory, but the memories come back to her as the game progresses, which adds some charm to the gameplay. However, otherwise this project is – a typical slasher with a high rating, but the main character looks gorgeous in it!

Ciri looks attractive and graceful, but not effeminate. Her image combines femininity and inner strengthwhich attracts many gamers.
Interesting fact: in fact, it is she, and not Geralt, who is the true protagonist of the Saga. Yes, we have been watching the adventure of the Witcher all this time, but it is the fate of Ciri that is fundamental to the history of the world.
Lara Croft – Tomb Raider
Lara Croft is the protagonist of memes and many of the evening fantasies of avid gamers. She is attractive, confident and incredibly brave. The image of Lara was copied from the canon adventurer and plunderer of the ancient tombs of Indiana Jones. However, she has her own special style that attracts players.
The second restart (2013-2018) updated not only the graphics of the games, but also added personality to the girl’s character. She stayed the same attractive and cocky, but at the same time the players were given the opportunity to see behind the game model personality.
Interesting fact: after the reboot, Lara became significantly younger. She became a skilled but aspiring adventurer. Thus, the second restart became a kind of prequel and fit into the overall story.
Raine – BloodRayne
Raine is a child of her time (early 2000s). This girl was born from the union of a man and a vampire, therefore she received the best qualities of her parents. She decided to direct her power to a good cause: a battle with embittered bloodsuckers and the dark occult of the Third Reich.
This lady is not only effective but also incredibly effective as a fighter. She can see in the dark, slow down time, drink the blood of your enemies and kill them with the help of two powerful blades that are attached to the girl’s forearms.
