And so I ask myself… Is winning this struggle worth losing my soul? Can one crime justify the reversal of another? The old Nilin seemed to know the answer. As for this Nilin… She doesn’t have a clue.

NilinRemember MeDontnod Studios
The intrepid protagonist and playable character of the new (and criminally underrated) Remember Me, Nilin comes from a futuristic world where people’s memories are digitized, bought, sold, and forgotten. A former “memory hunter” and an amnesiac herself, she must navigate both the ethics and the enemies of this brave new world.
Thoughtful, empathetic, and believably snarky, Nilin is a pleasure to spend time with. It’s somewhat jarring, even unusual, to spend time with a video game protagonist who firmly believes that killing is wrong - but also quite refreshing. It’s true that Remember Me doesn’t explore it’s fascinating premise in the depth that it probably deserves, but the questions Nilin asks throughout the game are engaging nonetheless, and I’d seriously encourage anyone looking for a great leading lady to pick it up.

Sure, women in video games still have a way to go - but let's pause to acknowledge some of the awesome already in our midst, shall we?
