No thanx, I definitley do not consider UC to be better than TR or the best sitting where Lara Croft once sat. So No, I have said that i consider UC too ''Inspired'' by Tomb Raider....

I agree. Nate is popular, but not as recognizable as Lara. Many people, even non-gamers know who Lara is.

Uncharted inspired from Tomb Raider.

Tomb Raider inspired from Indiana Jones.

Indiana Jones inspired from Allan Quatermain in Sir Henry Rider Haggard's novel.

End of story. :)

Mostly because of the movie.

The majority of people on this planet:

ME: "Do you like Tomb Raider?"
IMAGINARY PERSON 2: "With Angelina Jolie? Yeah, it's okay."
ME: -_-

Yeah, true, but still she was on so much merchandise back in her heyday. Even all the stuff like Lucozade.

Unfortunately now though, people only know her for the movies.

The only people who know Allan Quartermain would be the people would read/watched The League Of Extraordinary Gentlemen. And frankly, I don't think that's a lot.

I don't think that people know her only from movies... Mostly when I ask somebody if she/he knows Lara, the answer is that he/she played or at least saw a some classic TR title in his/her childhood.

That's the point, you shouldn't compare Quartermain to Lara... Lara is possibly, the most famous gaming character of all time.
