Geeky Goodies: Girls in Games

Mar 13, 2017

Happy Monday, friends! I've been sick and miserable for the past couple of weeks, so I haven't felt much like blogging lately. To be honest, I haven't been doing much of anything aside from falling asleep on the couch surrounded by used-up tissues every night.

I started feeling much better over the past weekend though, yay! I went to a beer festival on Saturday, since even though I'm sick, the tickets were expensive and non-refundable soooooo obviously I still had to go. It was crazy fun and I even woke up feeling really good the next morning. Go beer!

I'm a few days late on this, but I wanted​ to chat a little bit about International Women's Day. Like many women, I couldn't afford to take a day off of work (especially after taking so much sick time), but it was definitely on my mind. Watching so many women stand up for change was such an inspiration, and I was thrilled to hear about Sony backing Girls Make Games, so I decided to devote a Geeky Goodies post to my favorite women in video games.

Over to you! 

Who's your favorite female video game character? Unfortunately, video games with women protagonists are still in the minority, but I feel like the industry is slowly but surely making strides in the right direction. Let me know your thoughts in the comments below!
