: Why does it always come to Tomb Raider when people are talking about Indiana Jones? I hate that game... it's just an Indy rip off (Indy with big boops). I understand that it sells pretty well as mass market entertainment, but I don't understand why people have to talk about it every time they talk about Indy and the Infernal Machine...
: A while ago someone posted about some Indy book on this forum and he suggested that the name could be "Tomb Raiders" because he was thinking aobut Tomb Raider at the time...
: I also just visited Indy3D.net to check out the latest news and what did I find? "OGR has posted new Tomb Raider 3 screenshots"
: I just don't think Tomb Raider should have a place in Indy fans hearts... What do you think? Does anyone feel the same or do I just need some rest after the long school week?
The fact is that it was the first action\adventure game to have ACTION AND ADVENTURE! It is also the best. Lara's rank still holds to this day, but I predict that Indy in the Infernal Machine will de-throne her.
Yes, I think Tomb Raider does belong in every Indyfan's heart. You may remember, before the game came out, that many similarities between Indy and Tomb Raider was observed. The roots of her adventures (Indy) have not at all been ignored.
