The trailer for the new Tomb Raider film just debuted and I think it looks pretty good.
What are your favorite games/memories in the series?
For me personally, I’ll never forget the first time I played Tomb Raider in 1998. The opening cinematic to that game totally blew 8-year-old me away. It’s a total cheese-fest now but to me, Lara Croft was like Indiana Jones but cooler because she had sunglasses and could shoot two guns while back-flipping.
Playing through the first game I was totally enthralled in the adventure and in the character. I ultimately got stuck and never finished the first game until I was a teenager but I’ll always remember those puzzles, the enemies and the mythology that the first Tomb Raider used so effectively.
I’ve played through a majority of the old games and I really love the two most recent games even though Lara doesn’t wear sunglasses anymore or shoot guns while back-flipping.
What about you? How do you feel about Tomb Raider and Lara Croft?
