Why Lara Croft, Nathan Drake, and Ezio Completely Suck at Climbing

Kotaku: Here comes the boasty part. Over the past two years I’ve become increasingly obsessed with climbing: I train to climb, I eat to climb, I sort of just live to climb. I’ve gotten pretty good (read: average) and that gives me the goddamn right to be an old condescending bastard when it comes to how characters climb in video games.

Today, I am exercising that right.

Lara Croft, Nathan Drake, Ezio. Your climbing technique sucks in various different ways, to varying different degrees. You have little to no footwork. No effenciency of movement. You have no idea how to shift your weight. You have no idea of how to climb statically and you ‘thug’ your way through every single move on the wall. (Assassin's Creed, PC, PS3, Tomb Raider, Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception, Xbox 360)
