Poll requested by Keir. Thank you for participating.

First in ;)

Should be interesting to see the results. I wonder if this has anything to do with those reports of trying to win over more women to play TR - making it more female friendly and such?

Well, according to Minty Mouth :pi:

Not really surprising. There are way more male gamers and the series is aimed at a tween male audience for the most part. :pi:

I usually have men in my avatar and when I first joined the forum, quite a few people thought I was a man :p I added a "gender" note to my location so it said female (and then CroftScionGuard dubbed me "Lady Heretic" after a discussion about Dante's Inferno, so I changed it to that :p)

You are unemotional most of the time. Like a man is supposed to be. :D

In the game you show it, but in here you write like a cardigan clad college professor. But you don't have the whole kit with the monocle and a pipe, that honor goes to aussie500. ;)

And looking over the names of the females in here, only one name surprises me. I always thought ThatNorskChick was a guy... ;)

My father worked for Panasonic for a long time after he left Motorola. The Japanese way is to ask the people what they want, not the American way of "we know what's best".

And tell them that most of the gamers who like Tomb Raider are in the 50 year old range and are male. ;)

And the 20 year old range female demographic agrees with the 50 year old range male demographic :p

It's not scientific. But it'll give a good impression of the facts. It'll be combined with their research (marketing spend lots of time on focus groups and research agencies, so this is our chance to get involved too).

I was thinking that TRU sold somewhere around 2.5 to 3 million copies. Compared to that, a few hundred self-selected people voting on a forum can't possibly be statistically accurate as a representation of all of the fans :o

The forum is almost 10 years old, so there are lots of

inactive accounts
unverified users (registered but didn't bother to activate)
permabanned accounts
accounts which were permabanned soon after their creation


If the number of users in the statistics box reflected only those people who have posted at least once a month in the past six months, I reckon it'd barely reach 500.

No. Maybe in this place (and since I pay no attention to this aspect in this forum or visit the gay threads I cannot even be sure of that), but even then I doubt it. Think about all the TR games that have been sold, not just the people in this forum. If i had to guess at this (and that is all that anyone could do), I'd place the figure almost precisely at the percentage of gays to straights in the world.

I've said it once and I'll say it again here. :) I'm gay and (that's me) like Tomb Raider for the globe trotting experience and because its an excellent adventuring game that's like no other.
There are other similar adventuring/action/puzzling games I love like Resident Evil. Yes, RE is survival horror, but its got a lot of running around, trying to figure out where to go next, finding items and placing them in their correct receptacles, as well as solving puzzles.
So its not just Lara. She's one of the reasons, but she's not the only reason.

Yeah, what is that actually all about? Until I joined this forum I never realised that Lara was such a gay icon. I'm not criticising it in any way, it just seems to me that Lara was originally created to appeal (primarily) to teenage heterosexual males lol. I'm just a bit intrigued as to how and why she's so successfully managed to appeal to the gay community too :p

Cause she looks overdone? Big eyes, small nose, big lips, big boobs, thin waist, big bottom and strong legs. Nearly looking like an overdone transgender. No offense to anyone.

Personally I dont know. I used to love her strong attitude and charm, but now I dont really care about her attitude anymore thanks to the change in bio.

I write this with no ill feelings or bad intentions whatsoever. :)

Enough of the gay Tomb Raider stuff already. So some fans of the series are gay, so what? I'm sure that gays play all kinds of games. People should cease and desist playing up the "gay attraction" that the game supposedly provides. I see (literally) nothing homosexual about the game, and in fact if there were I wouldn't want to play it.

I am bisexual myself and I dont see nothing in her that would make her an gay icon. I only raised the model traits due to her actually looking rather overdone in the past, and even still she manages to look like some manga/anime character.

I am just curious of the amount of gay members here though. There seems to be an rather huge amount.

I actually think a poll would go some way to putting some closure on all this sexuality of a TR fan discussion. Though to play devils advocate for a moment it could be something about TRF rather than TR that attracts such a diverse mix of people. There's something here for everyone and in that sense, it may be that its a gay friendly place to be. I know other TR forums generally have fewer 'non straight' people than here so there may be something to that observation.

The question is, can GC members handle a poll or discussion on such a thing in a mature way without getting hysterical or offended/offensive?

There have been quite a few threads with the same subject. Some of them lasted long without any hatred, some were closed within the first day.

But if it is such a bad idea, then dont make it. It would give a percentage and would perhaps give an closure to the ancient question: Why are there so ''many'' gay fans. To me it doesnt seem like every single person is gay though. Some are just rather vocal about it...

You know, I think most people in here are very tolerant people (I am not speaking for all, just an observation). But everyone has a point where they "break" on a given subject, and regardless of the results of this poll, some will be upset, disappointed, shocked, disheartened, angry, etc.

Have you ever heard the term "white flight" before? If the gays in this forum are quantified, and if it turns out that they make up a very large percentage of the active members, than this forum may be characterized as the "gay Tomb Raider forum". I don't want to be in that forum, and I'll bet that many others would not as well. I like this forum better. :) So, it is best to leave this subject to conjecture than attempt to quantify it.

If the poll is handled with a mature manner, out of curiosity to know what your sexuality is and how do you feel about Lara Croft... I dont see what is so wrong about it? Neither do I see how it would turn this forum to a "gay" one.

But if it would cause so many members to leave the place, then I wont ask a poll to be made out of this.
Please excuse my curiosity.
