Independent Ladies: Strong Female Protagonists of Games Past

Jill Valentine (Resident Evil, 1996)

Another great heroine from the Resident Evil franchise, a complete playthrough of the original Resident Evil will see her battling zombies, hunters and Tyrant, all while trying to rescue Chris and dealing with Barry's tomfoolery. Jill also makes a return in Resident Evil 3, where she has to dodge the relentless advances of the smarmy, but likeable U.B.C.S agent, Carlos Oliveira.

Jill would go on to greatness in later titles, but her early roles cemented her as a strong, loyal, and determined protagonist who continues to bounce back regardless of the circumstances.
