How obsessed are YOU with tomb raider??? post your other stuff down here:

I have all the games, play some type of tomb raider everyday i can, save the game boxes, have all the strategy guides, and I'm able to quote from them, I have Lara's Book, the Lara Croft Files, and other misc. books, I have the Special Editoin DVD and on VHS.
I could beat any level off the top of my head, and I play levels in my head to pass time or fall asleep. I listen to Tomb Raider music on Windows Media Player, and I could not imagine life w/o tr. ;)
Lara's book mentions the movie The Stepford Wives so I had to watch it. I'm really obsessed, are you?? :D

I really love Tombraider, I have all the games, plenty of magazines, the movie on DVD, and my Ericsson mobile is the Tombraider promoted version which plays TR ringtone!!! I have a replica TR key and numerous other bits and bobs. I am always playing one of the Tombraider games and could play them all day long!!!!!!!!!!:p

:o Now this is what I call going to the edge (and one step from crossing the border). It sounds like you want to marry this girl. I don't mind playing the Tomb Raider games or watching the movies but may I remind you that they are, after all, just games. They are designed to be entertaining and a good escape once in a while from daily stress. So, take some words from the wise, Get real! :o

Right now I'm glad Lara isn't alive because if she was and she read this she would probably come shoot you guys. ;)

I'd say I'm really obsessed. I play TR a lot, I have the DVD, I have a mobile with Lara (lol), I spent a lot of time in this forum... what can I say i'm obsessed! ;)
I don't play the games all the time but I play them a lot! And if you take a look at my desktop you'll see Lara 4 sure!

Well, it occurred to me, just before I voted, that I am just obsessed enough to spend a lot of spare time here, chatting with you folks about TR. LOL

I do intend to replay all of the games - just finished playing 2 for the 2nd time recently and am was working on Chronicles for the 2nd time w/my best friend - but she took it home to work on it herself for awhile.

But I don't own any Lara paraphernalia...I bought my friend the DVD and I only own TR1 myself.

Im not obcessed whatsoever. Tomb Raider is a great game, i enjoy playing it, and Lara is the best. But if AOD were to be suddened cancelled for released i would just move on with my life.

Before I read the poll, I thought you meant "which level am I most obsessed with".
That would be The Cistern - just can't get enough of those sound effercts.
Then the Train to Alexandria. Because, well, it;s a TRAIN!

Anyway, I suppose I'm generally obsessed, not a big deal. Heh.

I guess you could say I'm sorta obsessed, but not to the point where I need to have Lara Croft pictures everywhere in my room. I saw a guy who had pictures posted on the net about his "Lara Croft shrine". :eek: It was pretty dang scary.

I'm obsessed but I haven't beaten all the games yet. I do own then all, mind you. I like to get the TR action figures and stuff. Now I just need to get the TR lunch box...

I wouldn't neccessarily call that an obsession. That's more or less recognizing something new, and comparing it to something that you're familiar with. lol My Freshmen year, we would get so bored at lunch that we would play word association games. They can actually be quite fun, lol, if around a certain type of people, immature too! :p :D

one I live on this forum two if I don't have something to do with TR/Lara croft I get withdrawal. So I guess I'm OBSESSED! Yes it's only a game but it's a one in a million! :D

tombraider is a great game, but i saw a certain connection to my oldest grandaughter, and got a kick out of that. we have played all the games several times, i have some Lara memorabilia and dolls, i love comming to these forums, and oh Gandolf, a lara lunchbox?, boy, i have to get one of those! too cool,:D

Actually to be honest my raiding obsession really only started to go over kill since I've been on the forum talking to you folks I feel we bounce of each other and it keeps us going. I love it and Lara Croft is just totally so Cool and sweet as a button!

Indeed, a TR lunch box. I should have gotten one when I had the chance. Can't find one now:o

A little off topic: Didn't they make Smurfs lunch boxes? I want one of those too:)

Well, come to Belgium; we're still selling them I guess (since The Smurfs are a Belgian invention)

Damn, they think the same of Jean-Claude Van Damme and Audrey Hepburn (she was born in Belgium, you know)

They're all from Belgium originally ... don't take away the few things we own! :mad: :p

I would've thought any self-respecting country would do their best to dis-own Jean Claude Van Damme?

Van Damme: "Is this chair busy?"
Dennis Leary: "No...if it were covered in plaid it would be busy..."
Van Damme: "What...? Is not in my diction...."

I love Tomb Raider, I'm slightly obsessed, but not as much as I used to be. It has greatly influenced me. I'd only be more obsessed if my parents had more money, so then I could buy all the Tomb Raider merchandise I wanted.:cool: :p
