if in tr8 or tr9 or tr65 lara found her true love and got married, would you think that to be a good move by the game designers? would you be happy for her? or do you see her as being better off alone?

i personally would have a hard time thinking that any potential suitor would be good enough for her.

-oops. meant to put this in general chat. little help?-

No, I think she's better alone... Why does she need a husband? :D

Can mod please move this?

A james bond style marriage where her husband dies at the start of another game.. but.. wait.. he might not be dead.. It was all a plot... a plot to get you confused.. to get you lured in to a trap..

If the series should end someday, I would like not to have to worry about Lara's future :p I mean, once in her life she just won't be able to raid anymore, right?
She'll have to live with that somehow, a partner for life would be a good substitute then I think. What else can we think of? Don't want Lara to wither away... :(

Lara married?!?!?! No way, never, never, never, Lara's an archeologist, she needs no husband, that's why (I know this will sounds childish...) she's my rolemodel :)

What? Actually married in the game? NO WAY! In fan fiction, ok. But she has no need for a husband or kids or grandkids in the game.

27-05-06, 09:32
God no! Tomb Raider is about Lara's adventures, not her love life :cln:

no not really- but maybe when shes nearing the end she meets someone close to her farther and they kinda walk off into the sunset. but not now maybe TR 30 or something

Agnese Croft

Interesting concept to think what sort of man could stand up to her....do you think he would mind being referred to as "Mr Croft"???? http://i7.photobucket.com/albums/y280/ling2c/Smileys/naughty.gif

27-05-06, 10:15
definitley not, Tomb Raider would no longer be the glory that it is now.

Apofiss
27-05-06, 10:17
Nope. Maybe she could have some male supportive person as a very close friend :) ... (not involved in the game directly, just a little show off in a few cut-scenes perhaps)

LOl.

I think if she does end up with somebody and get married it would be a little weird. It wouldn't bother me too much, if they did it tastefully... But if it was Kurtis, i would KILL MYSELF!

sweetPoison
27-05-06, 10:24
Lara married!?!? Absolutely NOT!! But maybe a lover!!:D I wouldn't mind that!! Perhaps our 'man' could be Kurtis, which is most obvious. But, apart from him, she could probably be paired up with Alister!! I can definitely see them together!! Think of Negel and Sidney in Relic hunter!! LOL

Cochrane
27-05-06, 11:04
No way, I'm too jealous for that. I want Lara in my games to belong to me. Imagine you'd make Lara fall of a ledge and then her husband appears and screams "How could you do that? You incompetent monster!"

WOW!!! thats a brill idea!! i wouls love to play that level!!!

and she has to get married to this posh snob because if she does then she will get an artifact that will save the world!And then kurtis comes and gets the artifact and then runs into the wedding and runs away with lara!!!!GOD IM NOT USUALLY GOOD AT IDEAS BUT THAT ONE IS REALLY KEWL!!!!!!lol :D

illuminati30
27-05-06, 11:35
Noooooooooooooooooooooooooooo!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!! Never!!!!!!!!!!!!

I like the game to be about adventure, not the bloody personal life of Lara Croft! Its not sunset beach you know! Although these days it gets more bloody like it!

tha_mattster
27-05-06, 11:41
I think its a great idea for her to get married. There were too many tombs in the last game, she needs a break. Maybe one tomb is ok for the next game but most of it should be about her getting ready for the wedding. She should have to find all the cake decorations, and decide who to invite, like the sims. I think 90% should take place in her mansion, with one level where she has to go shopping for new outfits for her honeymoon. I hope there is not so much violence either, TRL was too gory for me. Lara isnt about violence or action its about dressing well and looking good. we have had 20 games about tombs, its so boring now. Maybe a couple of level as kurtis, he has to find a wedding ring for lara. if you are still reading this thinking im serious then you need a slap!

:D

What the hell! Why dont we just bring in Brad Pitt to the game! Lara's new name can be

'Lara Croft Jolie Pitt' and we can have 100 adopted children running around the mansion. Mansion tasks involve, cleaning up dirty nappies, feeding the kids, and hoovering, or alternativly letting Winston out the freezer to do it all.

Is he the Rutland from Legend or would it be his son? If it's the latter Amanda could be her mother in-law :vlol: !

Oh yeah, I wouldn't want her to get married.

Lara Croft!
27-05-06, 13:49
I don't want Lara to get married,but I'd like to see her with someone...perhaps Kurtis.

Getting involved,raiding tombs together,helping one another and then a crisis point will come where they would fight over the fate of an artifact or which direction to take...Kinda like TR movie II,but with Kurtis and a happy ending!!!!!!!

LaraCroftNo1Fan
27-05-06, 14:08
the one with Amanda...
and yet even tho James is dead I think Kurtis should be back in TR8

I think later on when Lara is a little less hardcore with what she does... like her father... I could see her like that.

Thorn
27-05-06, 16:15
Perhaps in the last game. It might be a great conclusion for Lara once she's done raiding.

Well we can wish that she gets married but truth be told, the producers won't introduce the concept in the game.

To be frank, Lara has become two important marketing symbols that the franchise wishes not to lose with the introduction of a life partner.

a) She has become a videogame sex symbol. Pariing her up with a husband will "kill the fantasy" so to speak; for those adolecents Lol!

b) She represents feminism; A symbol of women who have chosen to spend their lives without marriage.

Ya but Lara hasn't been around for only a few years. It's been 10 years. If Lara kept raiding and never stopped her story wouldn't get much interesting. She needs big events or else it's the same cliche on rerun.

How interesting can Lara getting married be? Maybe if she has a daughter and trains her to be a tomb raider too, lol. I just can't see Lara getting married as being a very big event. I'm sure there are many other events that could take place but still be really interesting.

27-05-06, 18:41
I wouldn't mind that at all really. Sort of like a mr. and Mrs. Smith scenario would actually be really cool. If Lara doesn't wish to be alone then she shouldn't be!

However, Lara being alone is cool too. I'd really be fine either way. Although I've always liked the idea of Lara and Kurtis hooking up. :p

MizzCroft007
27-05-06, 19:22
I think it COULD work, just as long as they really don't bring him up a lot in the story. Maybe have him at the mansion with Winston, Alister and Zip or something.

Preferably not though.

Good point. :)
If she did get married it would have to change the game in some way thereby keeping TR fresh. I don't know how a marriage could do this without turning the game into a soap opera.
But marriage is only one of many options. :D

:D

The game already has!

The game is about adventure, we take Lara on that aventure and we see her personality come through that way. I dont actually care about Lara, her out fits, her friends, her family, her lovers, her private life etc I have sunset beach for that!

Its funny how nobody has a problem with this but the gay marriage in video game thread kicked up such a fuss!!!!!

Maybe she will marry Amanda!

The day Lara gets married is the day i hang up my joypads, and never play a singe TR game ever again! Lara is independent, she needs nobody, man or woman.

But marriage is only one of many options. :D

But that's the problem right there; People don't want the game concept to change. Most of the TR fans were quite happy without the introduction of AOD. Legend tried to bring the old TR feeling back but didn't quite cut it. There is no way most of them will accept a drastic change in Lara's profile; Especially something like giving her a life partner.

I would definately want to see lara getting married in some point..

BUT:

the plot would be like in final fantasy.. no happy ending for the husband... Lara would kill her in the ending...

or her husband would die after a tradegy...

Hey, I'm cool with her searching cityscapes...as long as there's an artifact or info she's going to find. Seriously, I buy Tomb Raider for the adventure in what's most likely **drum role** a tomb of some sort, so I'm just not to keen on the "Wedding Raider" concept. Like everyone else, I have plenty of other games to choose from when I want to experience something different, so with that said, if I want a game about hooking up and getting married, I'll buy The Sims.

And Lara, who is very startled (sp?) by him, she drops the knife and it slices through her fingers! Then she screams loudly, takes out a gun from her holster with the other hand and shoots Alister, then she mutters: "Please Alister, this will take some concentration!" (A quote (sp?) from Legend I know) And that is what would happen if Lara and Alister married! :vlol: :vlol: :p

Have you seen the movie "40 year old virgin?" :rolleyes::D

Anyway I love to see Lara married one day. Just imagine this people. Remember Tokyo level in Japan? The party dance hall?

She can have a wedding ceremony in a church where many people lingers around. She's in a white elegant wedding gown .Then some yakuza or gangster just mob in. She jumps behind the piano and came out with her dual pistols.

And then we have a new costume: Wedding Gown, Ripped

:D :D :vlol: *continues dreaming:cln:
