Independent Ladies: Strong Female Protagonists of Games Past

Sherry Birkin (Resident Evil 2, 1998)

Despite being overly sexualized in Resident Evil 6, Sherry made her first appearance in Resident Evil 2 as the sorely neglected daughter of scientists Annette and William Birkin. Through this, she has learned to take care of herself and proves to be resourceful and quick-witted.

Even when faced with a rabid pack of zombie dogs, she continues to plow on and even helps Claire secure the Clover Key after running through said dogs a second time. Sherry's quick thinking, resolve, and autonomy are a role model that whiny kids the world over can look up to!
