: Well, as I'm also a fan of adventure games, I'd say that that's also nice....however, seeing that Tomb Raider borrowed heavily from the Indiana Jones series.....hmmmmm......I think....*scratches his chin for a minute*......

Well, it borrowed, yes, but I think Tomb Raider was really something new - not an Indy-type adventure at all. How do you envision this "Tomb Raider style" Indy game's gameplay working? Indy doing backflips and firing his pistol at everything in sight? Actually, Indy would freak out if he had to do the things Lara Croft does. Heck, a circus high-wire artist would freak out doing some of that! Lara is obviously insane, but it IS exciting to play. Too bad the Tomb Raider "stories" both sucked chilled monkey brains.... Now that I think about it, to say those games borrowed HEAVILY from Indy is almost an insult to Indy!
