So my article on female antagonists is still a work in progress. I think it says a lot about this category of game characters when they’re actually quite difficult to talk about. I’ve primarily found that they’re either hypersexualized or extremely ugly and wishing they were beautiful. Interestingly, many of the respectable antagonists do not remain evil and end up “going good”. I look forward to fleshing this out a bit more, but as I said, it’s been difficult.
If you have any suggestions as to female antagonists that you have hated or loved in particular, please let me know!
