1) they're both kinda disheveled & shabby-looking (kurtis in a youthful, rugged way & winston in a stately, shriveled-up way) ...

2) they're both a bit slow & uncoordinated (tho winston does have his age as an excuse)...

3) when knocked down, they both take forever to get back up...

4) they both have a limited variety of in-game sounds (kurtis says 'ugh!' & grunts; winston says 'oof!' & farts)...

5) kurtis seems able to dish out more damage, while winston seems able to take more...

6) they both have special gear, kurtis his magical disc, winston his magical bullet-proof teatray (with the difference being that winston's can be used in-game)...

7) they're both obviously experienced 'ladies men' (giveaways: kurtis's 'frisking' of lara, winston's unbelievably weary facial expression)...

8) lara doesn't really seem to know what to make of either of them...


(in case it's not obvious, i'm in winston's corner...)

So far, the majority seems to think Winston is cooler. Maybe Eidos will take the hint and make him a playable character next game. :D

Imagine it! A level with a timed walk to get tea to Lara in time!

*ROFL*

Winston or Kurtis? Well I know which one I'd rather spend time with ;)
I do like the bit about Winston's magical tea tray though.
I remember a couple of years ago seeing some (obviously altered) screenshot type things of Winston completing the Croft Manor assault course on Lara's quad bike.....highly amusing.

Winston, of course! Don't we all know that it is Winston who travels to all these distant tomb raiding locations before Lara gets there, and litters ammo, medpacks and secret items all over the place? Actually, he beat Boaz with his tea-tray, that's why they had to bring in Kurtis because she simply refused to fight Winston's mistress :D

I think Kurtis is just exceptionally cool. But no one can compare to winston. That guy is the standard by which coolness is measured. Kurtis's coolness level is 0.5 winstons.

LOL! I always assumed that some poor sucker that preceded Lara in the adventure didn't make it, but their goodies remained...:p But, there was one level, (don't remember the game), where a pick-up didn't exist until after Lara shot an animal, left the area, and returned; it clearly wasn't there before, and it wasn't a bug...Could the animal have left it just before dying, as a gratuitous gesture towards a worthy foe? Or, maybe it was Winston, after all!:p

It was Winston. ;) He is also the Cleaner (mind you, not the guy who tried to blow up Lara in AoD). He stole Cate Archer's stash of body remover liquid. :D

Winston is the shady figure responsible for all the unsolved mysteries in computer games everywhere.

Very funny LMAO... Winston of course..

Are they related ?

Raven

Yeah, maybe Winston is Kurtis' daddy!!! He wasn't murdered after all, he's been keeping an eye on Lara, knowing that she would one day be called upon to save his son's life.
The plot thickens.

to all who voted (& especially those who had nice things to say about the webpage), thank you...


it's very gratifying to see the old boy can still more than hold his own when pitted against this 'new' young whippersnapper...
