Some Excerpts

So, tell us a little about yourself.

Hello, my name is Ivan and I’m a 20-year-old IT student in Zagreb, Croatia. In my free time, I like to play games, spending time with friends, and watching movies. I also like collecting TR merchandise and am proud of my small collection, hopefully it’ll grow. Last year at college, I finally met someone who likes Lara as much as I do, but I wish I knew more TR fans here in Croatia. I would like to organise some TR gathering here in Zagreb, so all fans can discuss games, comics, movies, and just hang out.

What are your thoughts on Lara’s image? Is she simply the product of a sexist gaming industry or can she be seen as a positive role model?

Lara is a GODDESS! I don’t like her just because of her looks but also because of her personality. She is a true survivor and anyone who plays games should know about Lara Croft. She inspired me to never give up and taught me that there is always a way to succeed. So in my eyes, Lara is a positive role model. :)

If you could change one thing about the Tomb Raider franchise, what would you change?
