To celebrate International Women’s Day earlier this week, we asked you to share the amazing women in games that have inspired you over the years using #PSshare #PSblog. We didn’t just ask for your shares, but it touched you to tell us what these heroines and anti-heroes did. Here are the inspiring highlights of this week:
“Remaining strong after a great loss in her life, Aloy is nothing less than a strong heroine. While projecting kindness towards others. Something I identify with and try to do on a daily basis. “-
“Lara Croft will always be special to me – This character has really helped and inspired me.” – @XxPAGZxX on Lara Croft from the Tomb Raider series
She is a supporting antagonist in Ghost of Tsushima.
She is not a samurai, but she is a born slayer. Strong and beautiful.“- @ azuazu1202luna on Tomoe from Ghost of Tshushima
“Jesse absorbs so much and adjusts his perspective on reality without fully understanding what’s going on. All she knows is that if she doesn’t fix things, the world is in danger. – @MdeavourVP on Jesse Faden from Control
“A unique female character who stuck with her brother and ended up becom ing her savior from Jack the Ripper. She had strength, intelligence and leadership skills. BONUS: We also got to play older Evie! “-
“Seeing Raven overcome her past difficulties and grow as a person was amazing to watch and carries a meaningful message. One of the highlights of the game was her teaming up with Kat in Gravity Rush 2. ”- @Draikin on Raven from Gravity Rush 2
“Not all strong women in video games need to carry a gun. Hailey Cooper is known in East Harlem for her talents in street art and as a community organizer. Although she is deaf, it is her impact on her community that defines who she is! – @BarryPaust on Hailey Cooper in Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales
