Apparently there’s been a lot of acclaim for the newly rebooted Tomb Raider game at this year’s E3, showing a more mature (read: less boob-centered) direction for the series through an origin story with a younger, survivalist Lara Croft.
Except, well, this looks at least a little familiar…
Now I’m not saying this is a bad thing. Instead, I think Lara Croft emulating Katniss Evergreen is actually pretty cool in a progressive, stronger female character kind of way. Unless, of course, the game just has Lara Croft shrieking the entire way through it, like she does throughout what I swear is a five minute cutscene in some game demo footage I saw shown at E3. Worst case scenario, it could be a decent holdover until they make that inevitable Hunger Games video game.
