Tomb Raider has a whole double page in the "Guiness World Records: Gamer's Edition". Check it out here:

Most facts are well-known, others are completely random, but it's an interesting read. :D

Yeah. They've ignored the classic Lara. :mad: But nice that Tomb Raider gets a spot in the book.

gimme it!

I'm not at home right now, but I'll scan them as soon as I get back (2 hours or so)

I just realized TR is in two different places in the book, the games are there for the most successful game with a female protagonist, and the TR movie as one of the most successful in the box office through movie history. :tmb:

BTW I just printscreened the 2 tr pages so I have them big size :p

would you expect anything different??? it's a conspiracy to erase the original Lara from existence :vlol:

Ooooh cool! :D

Some of the forum's members are in the fastest completion time! :D

[The last 2 people definitely are, but I'm not sure about stacy].

Check out the fastest time for TR3!
I took over 18 hours on my last playthrough. :yik:

On a more critical note I thought the spread was very light on its statistics. It would be nice to know exactly how many copies were sold, exactly how they measured Lara's popularity and so on. Guiness World Records should be about measuring the success of something. Something which they kind of failed with on TR.

The Bartoli Dragon is easily way bigger than the Legend Sea-Serpent :eek:

Those legend sypathisers :mad:

I've gotta say the line 'Toby Gard accidentally increased her breasts by 150%' does sound rather suspicious :p

They seriously need to add Legend in at, like, 30 minutes on this list... :p

No, they're speedruns.

They can be found on www.speeddemosarchive.com (http://www.speeddemosarchive.com) and youtube.

The TR6 one is EwilCZ (http://www.youtube.com/user/EwilCZ) on youtube, and the TR2&3 is MMAN2 (http://www.youtube.com/user/MMAN2). (Both members here.)

Although, Mman doesn't have TR3 on his youtube, or TR2, but I remember uploading his whole TR3 speedrun for him about a year ago (Yeah, with permission. :p)

Hey, that's cool! :) congratulations Lara :p

A shame they couldn't've waited until Underworld was out and put that model in.. already now does Legend Lara look less beautiful ;)

Congrats MMAN. I've read it though :) People are right, there aren't any renders of classic Lara :rolleyes:

They seriously need to add Legend in at, like, 30 minutes on this list... :pLook at how fast they go.At this rate, I think Legend willl be like 15 minutes, no 10 minutes. :p
