Greetings folks. This is a short movie produced by www.tombraiderchronicles.com (http://www.tombraiderchronicles.com) heralding the achievements in video-game design, innovations and characters Core Design have developed over the years, each of which has left an indelible mark on the video-game industry and the lives of those they have influenced. If these unique ground-breaking projects had been marketed differently, the critical mauling Core Design weathered in recent times might have been avoided, and the true genius in their work acclaimed.

This movie is not officially endorsed by Eidos Plc.

That was nice... even though it showed mostly the graphical achievements (which aren't even that good, sorry).

Let's see... Core gave the video game market Tomb Raider and Lara Croft.

Tomb Raider: New 3-D and action adventure experience. I can think of a couple of titles to do this before and around the time of TR even more effectively: Mario 64 (3-D) and The Legend of Zelda (action adventure).

Lara Croft: "strong" female lead. Brought sex appeal to video games. Well, I can think of a female character created a looong time before Lara that doesn't need big boobs and annoying one liners to keep her appeal: Samus Aran. Samus is not an icon like Lara, but Samus is a true VIDEO GAME heroine.

So I give props to Core for helping expand what was already there :D Plus I haven't played their other games, to be fair. Maybe those games offered something I'm not aware about.
