Plot & Backstory Award

for the best representation of women

Pick your nominees
Women show strength and resolve by giving themselves a handicap in brutal combat. By wearing bikinis.
Dead Or Alive 5 Ultimate
Team Ninja
The Sorceress bares skin and bosom to show the patriarchal society (represented by the dungeon) that she is to be noticed and catered to.
Dragon's Crown
Vanillaware and Atlus
Women as games consoles sounds genius. It is. Every panty shot a damning indictment of gender politics in gaming today.
Hyperdimension Neptunia Victory
Compile Heart and Idea Factory
To say that the women in Killer is Dead were merely objects for the player to conquer is to underestimate the subtlety of Suda51. I'm actually serious.
Killer Is Dead
Grasshopper Manufacture
Long Live the Queen brilliantly subverts the misogynistic Princess Maker genre by removing the gameplay and reducing it to a roguelike/memory game with dress-up and evil lesbians. That'll show the Patriarchy!
Long Live the Queen
Hanako Games
The females in MGQ3 largely take control of their own sexual destiny. The unbirthing scenes in particular show the power of the womb.
Monster Girl Quest: Chapter 3
Torotoro Resistance
Women fight in increasing stages of undress in order to portray the bleak nihilism inherent in the fashion world. Strip off the labels! Free yourself!
Senran Kagura Burst
This title is a bold new representation on the famous Hollywood actress, Ellen Page, with striking accuracy and semblance.
The Last of Us
Naughty Dog
Lara carries a lot of torches, presumably for all the under-represented women out there.
Tomb Raider
Crystal Dynamics
