Every year, the TC Candler YouTube channel honors the 100 most beautiful women and men faces worldwide. For the first time, Ellie from The Last of Us 2 also features a video game character and takes 82nd place.
What kind of a top 100 is that? The annual Independent Critic List has been around since 1990 and is viewed by over 100 million people worldwide. The list is not a popularity contest, rather it is intended to be a very international list that includes many cultures, lifestyles, occupations, and celebrities.
For the first time, a video game character is included
This is so special: For the first time in 30 years, there is a video game character among the 100 most beautiful faces of women. Ellie from The Last of Us 2 ranks 82nd in 2020.

Ellie, 19 years old, a digital survivor of the apocalypse, loves throwing bricks. A funny anecdote about one of the game’s features.
The choice of Ellie could cause a stir in the gaming community because The Last of Us 2 has been overshadowed by harsh criticism despite its popularity with fans and the press. Many gamers would also see Tifa Lockhart or Aerith Gainsborough from the Final Fantasy 7 Remake or other female characters in the ranking.
What do you think of the matter? Did Ellie deserve this spot, or do you think it’s bullshit to place a video game character in a ranking dominated by real people?
