Might be an age old question but the only correct answer is Lara Croft. She’s flawless in her adventuring skills previous to upcoming release) while Drake will make mistakes.

"...while Drake will make mistakes." which makes Drake more believable than Lara Croft.

Valenka2836d ago

Agreed. Personally, I love them both, but I have been a Tomb Raider fan since the first game and Lara isn't flawless, but she's quite close to it.

MikeMyers2836d ago

This is about who's the better explorer, not who you like more or which series you like better. I like Nathan Drake's character more but Lara is definitely more of an explorer. The Uncharted series is much more linear, and that isn't a bad thing.

I often wonder if people are more likely to choose an exclusive title over a multiplat no matter what the context is.

Pittfall Harry is the best cause he's the one Drake and Lara are created after.

BlaqMagiq242836d ago

LOL!!! He IS the OG explorer after all!

On-topic: This is a tough one. What I would like to see is some kind of crossover between the two. And I mean the OG Lara not the OMG-you're-an-explorer-and -you-can't-****in-swim!? Lara.

Perfection isnt interesting its boring making mistakes is more human relatable and preferable

Nathan Drake

I love Lara I really do but I'm not just going to say her because of nostalgia reasons or because she came first.

Drake is funny, witty and is a likable character. Lara really hasn't been given much character development other then her shown to be smart and sensible when it comes to situations

What does that have to do with exploration though? Lara Croft excels in exploration where Nathan Drake kind of just stumbles upon what he's looking for. Lara Croft is smarter, more cunning, and she handles herself better in situations when exploration is in effect. She's a survivor and Drake is just a hood rat compared to her. I love both of the characters though.

coming from someone that has played both series i gotta say lara croft, she has the skills, the tech, of course she just like drake has the knowledge, and she has more money which opens up the possibilty to get contacts that can inform her about certain artifacts,shes gone up against more mythological creatures, and she has found more mythological artifacts and typically she never needs help, shes a one woman army.

Laura croft for the sex appeal

Snookies122836d ago (Edited 2836d ago )

Sex appeal? In that case, Sully for the great ass. Lol sorry, couldn't help that one. Drake knows what I'm talking about... He knows...

uncharted 2 ...jungle chapter lol

Y_51502836d ago (Edited 2836d ago )


Best line ever in Uncharted series in my opinion, other than "Oh Crap!"

Oh this too!

Enemy2836d ago

Gotta go with Nathan Drake. Even Lara Croft realizes this, hence the new Tomb Raider looks like an Uncharted clone.

EddieNX 2836d ago (Edited 2836d ago )

Uncharted is Tomb raider X indiana jones....

Uncharted is great lol. I'm just saying... You can't say say TR is an UC clone...

Enemy2836d ago

Tomb Raider invented platforming and treasure hunting? More Indy than anything else, which hasn't been turned into an Uncharted type game, by the way. Don't give up, Wii U!

Ezz20132836d ago (Edited 2836d ago )

so why uncharted is Tomb raider ??!!
do you even know what you talking about ?!

Imalwaysright2836d ago (Edited 2836d ago )

"Tomb Raider invented platforming and treasure hunting?" Oh not at all, TR basically set the standard for 3D adventure games more than 15 years ago.

Old McGroin2836d ago

@ Enemy

Uncharted is an evolution of the Tomb Raider template and it's pretty clear to see. But there were games before Tomb Raider as well. Pitfall springs to mind. And there were games before Pitfall, an so on.

Neither Uncharted nor Tomb Raider are totally unique, original ideas.
