Lara Croft from Tomb Raider might be one of gaming’s most attractive female characters, but she’s also one of the most positive
Tomb Raider’s Lara Croft: Sexy AND A Role Model
Lara Croft is one of those truly exceptional games characters who manages to be both sexy and a positive representation of women.
There was a time when Lara Croft was definitely just a sexy object, a time when Tomb Raider profited off of the size of her breasts. That time, however, is passed.
With the new Lara Croft Tomb Raider reboot, we see a much more realistic and more positive representation of Lara Croft. The Tomb Raider reboot shows Lara’s more compassionate side (where she struggles to come to terms with her first kill) as well as her bravery and kindness (in helping other characters in the game).
If Lara Croft was once a sex object, she is now a genuine role model; smart, sexy, compassionate and kind, Lara Croft deserves her spot at number 8.
