View Full Version : Why doesn't Lara have any muscles?

Seriously, it looks like she has the muscle mass of an infant. I'm not saying she should look like a Street Fighter IV character or a East German lady shot-putter but her complete lack of any motion or definition in the arms and back makes Lara look a lot less realistic, considering the amount of mountain climbing she partakes in. A little more spring in those khaki-clad glutes and quads wouldn't hurt either.

Don't get me wrong, I still think she's real purdy but if there are any Crystal Dynamics employees reading: please consider giving Lara a gym membership before the next game. And thanks for the great games!

I actually thought they've done a good job of showing emphasis on her shoulders and upper arms being slightly bigger in Rise compared to TR'13. At least I don't think I'm imagining it :p. I think Lara already looks quite athletic, but I guess a little more muscle emphasis wouldn't hurt. Though it wouldn't be visible under her clothes much.

Did we seriously run out of things to criticize, so now we're going to target Lara's physique? We're talking about Lara Croft, not Arnold Schwarzeneggar. Her body style looks fine as it is. Good Lord.

You mean scrutinizing Lara's looks isn't something that has been happening non-stop for the past 20 years? :p

Guess which game appeared at #3?

Or, perhaps a better question to ask is: guess which one appeared at #1? Any "wild guesses"?

Yeah, I don't think the "winner" of this special snowflake **** list will surprise you in the least.

Blatantly misogynistic!? The two most powerful characters in the game are female, and every lackey is basically a stereotypical male!

What an idiot.

He's an SJW, these morons clearly have no clue what they're talking about.
