As an oldtime feminist I always appreciated when games allow me to play a female character who have both a well developed personality and engage in a real story while skipping sexual undertones.

They just happen to be extremely few.

Here's a list I typed down before looking at the website linked. I will only list games with a female protagonist. No "I can select gender" or "I can select a female character" and I will skip most adventure games since they actually tend to have female main characters more often than male.

Jade, Beyond Good & Evil
Cate Archer, No One Lives Forever
Heather Mason, Silent Hill 3
Faith, Mirror's Edge
Chell, Portal
Jill Valentine, Resident Evil 3
Samus Aran, Metroid
Lightning, Final Fantasy XIII
Lara Croft, Tomb Raider Legends (not prior)

A couple of adventuregames:
Kate Walker, Syberia
Nina Kalenkov, Tunguska series
Zoe Castillo/April Ryan, Dreamfall/The Longest Journey
