View Full Version : You know you've played too much Tomb Raider when...

24-08-05, 19:42
...you start wearing Lara's clothes! (or something so like them it makes no difference).

I've been out shopping today and GUESS WHAT?? Found a T-shirt (olivey green) that has a V-neck and undershirt-type detail that is white. Quel surprise? :rolleyes: OK, so I don't quite have Lara's figure (or guns, holsters, backpack with flares and masses of lovely artefacts from distant lands etc etc... http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/whistle.gif ) to go with it, but has anyone else some confessions of a tomb-raider persuasion they'd like to share?

Other suggestions of over-indulgence symptons from TombRaider are welcome (keep 'em clean ;) )

LOL Undertaker! How about quoting scenes from the movies! It was a few weeks ago and I opened with the Pharmacist in the morning. and when the manager went to unlock the doors, the Pharmacist turned to me and asked, " Ready for another day of hard labor"? And I answered "Absolutely" LOL, I thought of the first Tomb Raider movie after I said that! http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/smile.gif

I don't know why, but sometimes I say "AHA" when I see something interesting/discover something... http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/whistle.gif

You know when you've played too much Tomb Raider when....
When your alarm goes off to get up for work and you are still playing. Happened several times, even once during AOD! http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/yikes.gif

Can identify with Croft Raider. I too find myself answering 'absolutely' to questions. As yet though no-one has asked if it's time to save the world.

Lets hope (for the dogs sake) UT never gets his gun license!

I found a identical light brown shirt like her Legend one too............and I bought 2 of them. :D Yup, one for my Lara clothes collection, and one to wear.

And in my collection, I have the Antartic outfit, the AOD outfit, South Pacific, original, and half of Nevade. Plus all the extra gear Still waiting for the Catsuit lol. But my fav are the red glasses.

I have long hair too that I like to wear in a braid.

But the wierdest was that I loved the way Lara walked down steps in AOD that I started doing it...yup, I'm psycho.

And OMGLOL!! Neteru! You made my day with that one!

25-08-05, 05:15
Well, I have a pair of boots that are like the ones Lara is wearing with her TR3/London outfit. I swear I bought them without realizing http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/whistle.gif http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/tongue.gif

I bought twin bb-guns after watching Angie on the first film. I can even do that little spinning round trick, though I'm not quite as good as she was at it...

25-08-05, 11:39
When you are a guy and dress up like Lara... http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/redface.gif

I also say "absolutely" and "aha"! :D

25-08-05, 11:46
Lol crux2 and Thorir!

I have got into the habit of walking like she does on "walk" in tr2 and tr3.

25-08-05, 12:22

For me, emmm..let me think..how about a list:

1. I always say "urgh" and "argh" when bumping into things like corners, doors, etc...

2. Saying "ahmmm..." (not exactly "aha") when finding something interesting...

3. Once tried to keep my hand in fists at all time... http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/clown.gif

4. Climbing up and down stairs like Lara in AOD... :D

5. Have an urge to shoot (with an imaginary pistol) anybody who annoys me...

6. Trying Lara's moves (when nobody is looking) - latest is Legend's "run, jump and grab"... http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/jumper.gif

Well, that's about it... I'm influenced by lara's action not her appreance,since I'm a male (I adore it instead) http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/thumb.gif ..but i really have an eye for that hostlers though... ;)

Me too :D I sometimes even moan like Lara when pushing a heavy door or something http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/tongue.gif

4. Climbing up and down stairs like Lara in AOD... :D

LOL, thank god that looks so natural someone will notice http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/c-2.gif

I had my mother make me a Lara-backpack like the original brown one, I still have it http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/smile.gif I had the original outfit too, but not a really good version. I never found many Lara-like clothes here in Belgium, but I would like the new Legend-top http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/smile.gif At least I don't need or want a boob job like Neteru http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/c-2.gif

I got my 2 at WalMart hehe, don't know if they are in Belgium, but I was shocked when I found them.

25-08-05, 17:16
I've seen a pair of boots like Lara's in Mansfield (the nearest town). I'm trying to drop subtle hints at the moment ;) . Perhaps if I took to wearing red, circular sunglasses and saying 'absolutely' more often someone will get the message :D .

26-08-05, 05:45
I've started to mimic her movements from when she's on the 4-wheeler in TR III and I moan and groan and whatnot when I walk into things and such.

There was one day at school, however, when I would only speak in quotes from AOD, and I hugged the wall and walked like she does in stealth mode. Luckily doing odd things like that is standard behavior for me, so nobody said anything.

26-08-05, 06:00
When I hear a dog bark, my first reaction is to roll forward and come up facing backward.

You know you've played too much when you start jumping blocks in your dreams!
And quoting TR movies in normal conversations.... haha - glad to see I'm not the only freak

When something you see or hear in every day normal life that is just small and menial reminds you of an instant movie clip..... or game part.

When you can think of nothing else to be for Halloween but Lara (even when your 23).

And last but not least....


26-08-05, 16:59
>Walk like her.
>Try to see how far i can jump from standing and run-up and do it how she does.
>Climb up the stairs 2 by 2 in the way she climbs vertically.
>Saying 'ahh' when I walk into walls.
>Try to sneak up on people and garrot them with my imaginary wire.
>Put my hands in fists.
I think thats it?! http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/whistle.gif http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/clown.gif http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/whistle.gif

Is Wiston that creepy butler in TR3?
I though his name was jeeves if it is.
P.S. I like locking him in the freezer too!

My dads friend had played Tomb Raider for hours once and he was chopping something in the kitchen and he cut his finger and thought, "Oh that's alright I'll just re-load it." :D
