There’s nothing quite like a female video game character that can kick ass, take names and make the male characters look like absolute fools. But not all female characters got the memo; there are some characters that are just begging to be saved.

Becca knew that she would be addicted to video games for the rest of her life when she saw the first pixelated zombie shambling across her TV screen while playing Resident Evil 3. She particularly enjoys being scared, laughing until she cries, or just plain crying while experiencing games. When she isn't playing games she loves spoiling her cat Usagi and eating any kind of sushi she can find.
