Determined by three criteria:
- Ratio (how many female characters are there, compared to male characters, in each category, e.g. playable characters, enemies, non-playable story characters, etc.)
- Abilities (are the female characters' abilities non-stereotyped, and how powerful/useful are they compared to the male characters' abilities).
- Sexualisation (are any of the female characters' roles, demeanor, physical appearance or clothing designed to be sexually appealing. This is NOT the same as them simply being physically attractive, though obviously if all the female characters in a game are attractive while all the males are unattractive this would suggest a gender bias).


Important to note:
- This list and the analysis of a game's female representation is NOT an indicator of how good a game is, or of my own personal enjoyment of it.
- I have not ranked the games - they are listed in alphabetical order
