OXM UK: "Another one for the boys? 'Bollocks' say Crystal Dynamics."
I disagree. I know women that have been fans of the Tomb Raider games since the PS1. I get the whole "trying not to make her a sex object anymore thing" or whatever, but the severe boob reduction is too much LOL. Making her character more believable has nothing to do with the size of her breasts. There are many women around the world with boobs larger than hers and they're real. Now we don't even need to look at her chest to feel like something is missing. It's out of character!
"trying not to make her a sex object anymore thing" pretty much failed since she sounds like she's having multiple orgasms everytime she's in pain (just check out all the youtube comments).
one thing i don't like is how much attention their putting into how much she gets hurt, in the demos and trailers she's getting flung into walls hitting or landing on her head. It's like "hey we have this punching bag lets see how much damage we can do before the contents spill out" i know it's a reboot but when you've grown up with the previous one who was ex military you want the character to shows those traits.
I agree. It was a bit unnerving to have her get hurt and scream that much throughout the video. I REALLY hope the whole game doesn't play like this.
The only women protagonist I have played and enjoyed...
They totally changed Lara Crofts character....She was much more tough and less frail. Sure this is when she is younger and sort of a reboot but still. I agree that her "Ooooo's" and "Ahhh's" as she was getting hurt was ridiculous. They should tone it down a bit.
I have always been a person who believes that all gamers should have a choice for men or women, black or white, young or old characters in games. And I have nothing against a woman only game and do not think she should be some sexual toy. However I cannot and will not play a female character. I just can’t do it.
