Final Word:

With the Uncharted spin-off focusing on two female characters (unsurprising since @Naughty_Dog has long been a Games Developer who values women in games) and IMDB releasing a very female heavy 'most searched stars of 2016' list, maybe the industries at large will finally begin to realise that women can be more than just damsels in distress and the trophy to reward the male characters. We can only hope!
