Valentine’s Day is around the corner. Some of us will go on dates, while others are probably still looking for the perfect girl. As they say, perfect girls only exist in books, movies, and of course, video games. The world of video games has introduced us different female characters, each with their distinct looks, attitude, and backgrounds. Here are some of my favorites:
D.Va from Overwatch
What a dream it would be if you happen to find a girl who loves video games as much as you do? Hana Song a.k.a. D.Va is a professional Starcraft player and had joined the WCS Korea Code S-League. At the young age of 16, she already became the #1 ranked player in the world and was undefeated in the game for the next three years in all competitions. It makes her the epitome of the gamer girl we all have dreamed of meeting.
Rinoa Heartilly from Final Fantasy VIII
A kind girl who would patiently love you: Isn’t that what Rinoa Heartilly is for Squall Leonhart? Let’s admit Squall’s not exactly the guy who easily falls in love. He’s cold, a bit of a taciturn, and the type who usually pushes away people who care about him. But lo and behold, Rinoa had managed to break down his walls. There is just something about this girl’s warmth and kindness that makes her easy to love.
Zoey from Left 4 Dead
We all love a girl-next-door, but there’s nothing more attractive than a strong girl who can take care of herself. Let alone a girl who can wield dual pistols and a hunting rifle. Say hello to Zoey from the Left 4 Dead series. Zoey is one of the four survivors in the game. She’s fearless, and she can pretty much save you from a horde of zombies. No wonder, I love choosing her as my character when playing L4D 2 on my gaming laptop.
Zelda from Legend of Zelda Series
There is something about Princess Zelda that we all seem to love. Perhaps it’s her regal charms or her soft-spoken attitude, but she has a certain charisma — the perfect damsel-in-distress. Unlike the usual princesses, though, Zelda can fight and is a capable fencer as seen in Twilight Princess. She can transform her Rapier into a Bow of Light to fire Light Arrows in time of need.
Lyralei from Dota 2
Lyralei or Windranger is the perfect dream girl for a nature lover. She’s the type who would take you on nature walks and would love to spend time with you by hiking or camping over the weekend. Aside from that, she’s a stunner with her flowing red locks and large golden brown eyes.
Lux from League of Legends
Everybody needs a ray of sunshine to make it through the day, and that is what exactly Lux can bring you. She’s an optimistic girl that seems to always find good things even in the worst situations. Aside from that, she was born to a prestigious family and was extraordinarily magically gifted. She also has doll-like features with her straight blonde hair and baby blue eyes.
Kat from Devil May Cry
Admit it or not, there is nothing more attractive than a mysterious girl. Kat is a beautiful psychic from DmC: Devil May Cry and a prominent member of the Order, an operation that deals with the demonic forces that control the Limbo City. She serves as Dante’s guide in the limbo and is an ever-reliable confidante who will always be there by your side.
Lara Croft from Tomb Raider Series
Last but not the least is Lara Croft from the Tomb Raider Series. Although born into aristocracy, she chose to be an archaeologist and decided to go on her adventures to save artifacts from different parts of the planet. She’s an independent and smart lady who also happens to be stunning and sexy.
How about you? Who’s the video game female character you’d like to go on a date with?
