View Full Version : It's a tragic day for Tomb Raider popularity

25-11-04, 20:43
They're having a knockout competition on a Final Fantasy forum to find the all time best computer game. In it's Round 1 match against friggin "Space Invaders", Tomb Raider is losing by 8 votes to 3.

Are these people insane?

The vote thread, complete with replies (http://www.awff.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=7542)

Oh, an don't anyone rush over to tip the scales. That would be a bit unfair. I'd rather just wallow in this sad moment.

(I mean, if it was Donkey Kong I might understand, but Space Invaders!)

Can't see the thread in question either, and I really don't want to register there. Could you summarise

BTW the one who compare arcades[that i love to much and i play them for almost 20 years and i am also a mamefan and mame collector],with pc games is probably a lunatic or a moron or an idiot! http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/clown.gif

Elen, Tlr....

Ah, didn't occur to me that.

Ok, well there's not too much to see that you couldn't just imagine anyway. A special "Best all time game competition" forum as been added to the main forums, and each match-up in the first round has its own thread/poll. Just imagine a Results stat at the top of the thread showing Tomb Raider trailing Space Invaders by 8 votes to 3, and you're halfway there. Then come the mostly brief replies, the worst of which says something like "Went for S.I. Tomb Raider sux".

And that's about it.

I couldn't expect more in a FF forum ;)

Well do keep us informed as to how TR fares against Space Invaders in the Hitman forums, Elen http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/tongue.gif

25-11-04, 21:46
You know I don't bother ;) Besides, if we set up a poll here, TR will win. I didn't mean the FF forum specifically. I used it as an example, where this board is a non-TR one. FF would lose here and the fans would say the same thing. Got my point?

im a big fan of FF. Theyre amazing. i see where youre coming from though http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/mischievous.gif

Well, kind of, but...

On a Final Fantasy forum, you'd think Space Invaders and Tomb Raider would be judged in an unbiased fashion, as neither game is featured/talked about on the site normally. The only exception to this theory would be if FF and TR has some sort of rivalry I'm not aware of.

Space Invaders rule. But... think about how all those little green aliens feel when folk on earth play at killing them all. :(
