Lara Croft: More Vulnerable, But Stronger Than Ever

Undeniably, Lara Croft is one of the most recognizable characters in all of gaming. Over the course of sixteen years and nine games, her role in the Tomb Raider series has solidified her place in the annals of gaming history. Her renown has expanded to such a degree as to yield two Hollywood blockbusters, a possible third in the works, a theme park ride, and a place in the Guinness Book of World Records as the “Most Successful Human Virtual Game Heroine”. Sounds like the folks at developer Crystal Dynamics have a veritable goldmine on their hands, right? So the logical thing to do would be to reboot the franchise and completely revamp the character that has been along for the ride since day one. As crazy as it sounds, this move makes a lot of sense.
