March 8 is a very important day around the world, as International Women’s Day is celebrated. In order to do our small part, PlayStation LifeStyle took a look at some of our favorite video game heroines. From major gaming icons like Lara Croft to recent PlayStation mascots like Aloy from Guerrilla Games’ Horizon Zero Dawn, we found a lot of powerful characters that are worth being praised on this fantastic day.

Since we are a PlayStation site, we had to limit the list to characters that have appeared on a game that was released for a Sony system. So while Zelda and Samus Aran may be the top video game heroines you think of, you won’t find them on our list. This didn’t limit our choices, though, as there were still dozens of awesome characters to choose from.

With those specifics now out of the way, check out our list below of 10 great video game heroines!

We hope you enjoyed our look at 10 great video game heroines. While we only highlighted a few fantastic gaming characters, there are plenty of other great women in gaming. From villains to heroes, we’re seeing a more diverse array of video game characters now. That’s great to see, and while there’s still a long way to go, so many kids now have representation in their favorite medium.

Let us know in the comments below which video game heroines are your favorite, and which one you’d love to see star in another game in the near future!
