The Evolution of a Tomb Raider

Lara Croft is one of the earliest female protagonists in video games and has been held up numerous times – for both right and for wrong reasons – as a gem of the industry. Like it or not, Lara Croft has become synonymous with video games. While her most recent exploits haven’t been game changers, and have allowed more modern franchises to take her crown, Lara Croft remains strong in my heart as one of the few characters to be held up as a shining example of how video games have evolved. (PC, PS2, PS3, Tomb Raider, Xbox 360)

I really enjoyed Tomb Raider on PS1 with all the fun puzzle/adventure gameplay

I actually liked the oldschool grid based controls. I just wish we could have a new Tomb Raider with those controls or at least similar!

People would just call it dated control mechanics, but I think it helps balance the game.

Um...eww?
I loved the old games, but fumbling for 20 seconds to pick up a flare is just irritating. Go back and try to play them...really, it's not as fun as it used to be.
