Some Excerpts

Do you run a Tomb Raider fansite or blog? If so, what would you say was your biggest achievement to date?

Yes, I, or should I say *we*, have a Facebook fanpage, Tomb Raider Paraguay, and I guess our biggest achievement was making Lara and her game series better known amongst gamers in my home country.

How has Tomb Raider changed your life?

Wow, where I should start? :) I think when I first saw her I just wanted to be like her: strong, boundless, intelligent, smart. In that moment, I developed some kind of passion and love with history and human behaviour. And, well, here I am today, a social science teacher and a lawyer. The only thing I haven’t done yet is travel around the world. ;)

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?

Maybe when the game was first in development stage it was sexist, but I guess they couldn’t know the impact she was about to make in the video game world. Today we see her as more than simply a sex symbol: we see her as a strong woman, brave, bold and intelligent. I mean, wow! The type of girl you would like to meet in every corner or at least once in your lifetime.
