And to this day are able to rally us behind their cause.
We’ve decided to pay homage to these characters, so that they and all who read this may know that they are loved in all their senseless glory."

Hmmm. When you have to literally reimagine and recreate a character from ground up so he or she can be more appealing, I wouldn't consider it as "stood the test of time". Lara Croft is not the same as she used to be, she most definitely did not stood the test of time.

Fair enough, I see where you're coming from! But most of these character have been reworked to some extent and I don't think any of them are any less deserving of the 'Iconic' title because of it. While Lara has received a considerable visual makeover, her core character hasn't changed all that much, I mostly just think there is more to her than before, she is a more complex character.

The rebooted Lara Croft is no where near the original's personality and character. The reason why tbey rebooted her is because the original did not stand the test of time.

Now I am glad Kratos is still tje same Kratos even though much have changed in his new game.
