Crystal Dynamics on Tomb Raider reboot: “Lara Croft as a sex object isn’t our goal”

VG247: Crystal Dynamics’ art director Brian Horton has been talking about creating the new Lara Croft for Tomb Raider, where she isn’t going to be seen as a “sex object” as far as the studio is going.

The story is too old to be commented.

presentation of lara croft as a sex symbol is one of the most iritating aspects of that series

seriously, it is just a female character, not your possible sex partner - iam not talking to you forbidden darkness, but generally :)

i am glad crystal dynamics got it - it is the first step for new tomb raider game to be serious and potencially good adventure game

This is actually kind of a disappointment.

They should be making her a new type of sexy or something, because Lara Croft IS a sex symbol.

I guess the KEYWORD Though is "sex object", because I never saw her that way. Thats a bit crude and sexist. lol

“Lara Croft as a sex object isn’t our goal.”

Umm.. she always has been. That's how got interested in purchasing this game in the first place. Finding out the game was awesome came a tad bit later.

I miss the days when CORE interactive held the IP.

Well i dont miss it . never was a fan .

But i can understand the feeling .. i would be an hypocrite if i didnt , after complaining (for the right reasons) how the upcoming DmC got nothing to do with the serie

So you would have rather had a couple more Angel of Darkness' then Tomb Raider: Legend, Anniversary, and Underworld? Wow.

Look man, I am a huge fan of Tomb Raider I-III but after that the series really started to show it's age. Some people would argue that happened at II even.

Either you haven't played the CD developed games, or you miss the days of PS1 exclusivity.

good! make the game a success because of its storyline and gameplay, not because the chick has huge polygon bewbies

Well looks like they finally understand.

Awww, I wanted her boobs to be so big that they took up 3/4 of the screen.

Imagine endlessly dying because her massive rack was obstructing everything.
