Lara Croft

Sexist or not? I have just started playing the new game, and whilst I enjoy the game play and adventure aspects of the game, I can't help wondering why they would put an adventure character in the mountains of Peru wearing virtually nothing.

Most computer games are aimed at hormonal male youths and it would be churlish of me to state the obvious. Judging by the sales of Lara C, I would imagine the merchandisers have got it spot on.

Don't know If you have been to Peru,but its very hot and sticky and if you where leaping about from cliff ledge to cliff ledge,you wouldn't want your clothes to snag on a protruding branch etc.

So you can see,when you think it through,Lara is ideally dressed for the rigors of the mountains.

She also,you will have noticed Carry's a lot of gear in her backpack.Thats for balance.

If you don't already work for a PR company I suggest you apply to one immediately.

I've never been to Peru, but in the game, it's snowing and iced up in those mountains!

I've been to Peru and it is brass monkey weather up the mountains of the Cordillera Blanca.

Just go out onto the High Street by the Clubs late on a Saturday night, even mid-Winter, Miss Croft would definitely appear to be overdressed unless my eyes deceive me!

Were you folk leaping from cliff to cliff? No!
My previous post stands.
