The female game characters who waggled our joysticks.
Jill Valentine, Resident Evil
If you're a member of a group called STARS, you're going to be fit, aren't you? And if you're in a video game all about flesh-munching zombies, you're going to be double-y fit, aren't you? That's exactly what Jill Valentine, the tough-talking, undead-destroying vixen with a virtual gun, was in the first Resident Evil game. There was something ever-so-slightly fragile about her - she took less damage and ran slower than Chris Redfield, but she could pack more ammo, had two extra item slots, and could pick locks. She sure as hell picked the lock to our heart.
