Assume you meet someone who has no idea who Lara is.
How would you describe her? (1-3 sentences)
Which picture of hers would you show to this person? (Except for the ones that contain all Laras obviously)


I would say...
"Lara Croft is a videogames heroine, starring in multi-selling Tomb Raider Games.

There have been many games since 1996 when it all began and they still make new ones.

Lara is a sex symbol, she has starred in commercials, many magazine covers and there have been released two films about her starring Angelina Jolie."

Or...

"Google her" :D

And as for the pic...

Most people here know who she is...

Whenever I mention Lara, common responses include:

"Omg, I hate Angelina Jolie!"

(This results in a huge telling off and explanation from me)

Or

"The Graphics used to make me feel sick!"

Or

"OH, The one with the massive boobs?"

Or

"Those games are ****!"

:D

As for the three things, I guess I'll have to think about it. :D

^I hate how people automatically think the films.

Big boobs, big guns.

Lara used small guns from the start.

Strange, I wonder who Lara is.

You can't blame non-gamers for thinking of the movies first. Angelina had left her mark!

Since Angelina jolie won't return for TR no more someone is gonna replace her but we don't know who just yet.

I would best describe her as a mystery wrapped in an enigma. At least she used to be. :pi:

She's a videogame character who has two huge boobs and twin pistols, and goes raiding tombs to steal ancient artefacts.

Easy. And yeah, I've heard of the response "Angelina Jolie" waaay too many times. >.>

Your right, yet it doesn't matter, the point I mean, of big guns.

Hardly any of that makes the game. Take away Lara's bobs and the guns in the classics (something lots of level builders do today) and you can still have a tomb raider game.

Your right, I totally just assumed it was about Tomb Raider, woops. >.>

Still, not matter what that GI article says, there has been more to Lara in the past.

I also get people saying Angelina Jolie to me, but it doesn't "offend" me...after all its not like Lara is my life lol.

I normally just say she's a video game character!

Main character of the Tomb Raider games. :p Obvious, no?

As for the picture, definitely something from the first 3 games as that's the Lara I'm used to.

Lara Croft is the main character from the video game, Tomb Raider.
She's a British aristocrat who travels the world in search of mysterious artefacts.
She's famously recognisable by her dual pistols and long braid/ponytail.

I just did this a few days ago. Because they were complete idiots and never heard about Tomb Raider. How in the hell, I do not know. :rolleyes:

I take it they are gamers?

I don't know anything about these people you are referring to but just because someone hasn't heard of a video game series or character doesn't make someone an idiot, does it? At least I hope that isn't the case because there are many I am clueless about and have zero desire to 'learn of'. :o
