I would like to announce that Lara Croft has been nominated for the Walk of Game! If we all vote, we might be able to get Lara Croft enshrined in her own Star in the Metreon!

Excerpt from the Walk of Game website:
"Walk of Game is the first-of-its-kind landmark honoring the icons and pioneers of the videogame industry.

Walk of Game is located inside Metreon, a 350,000 square-foot entertainment complex at Fourth and Mission Streets in the heart of downtown San Francisco.

Every year, gamers worldwide cast their vote on www.WalkOfGame.com (http://www.WalkOfGame.com) to induct the next set of honorees to receive a permanent 24"x 24", customized steel star on the Walk of Game. Inductees to date are: Nolan Bushnell, Shigeru Miyamoto, Halo, Link (The Legend of Zelda), Mario, and Sonic The Hedgehog.

The list of nominees is compiled from a survey of industry members and technology, entertainment, and gaming media. SCA Interactive, a leader in online promotions, powers the Walk of Game voting interface.

Check www.WalkOfGame.com (http://www.WalkOfGame.com) regularly to keep informed about upcoming events including voting for the 2006 Inductees!"

Looking forward to the opportunity to vote for our favorite heroine! The competition may be stiff, but I am confident Lara will receive her due.

I don't mind about the registration at all, but why do we have to choose 4 characters no matter what? Anyway, the other three I chose were the ones I never heard before :D like Frogger :confused: Our Lara is second. We need more votes!!!!

Since Tomb Raider (one) was the best game ever, I voted for that. ;) Tomb Raider Two and Three are also in my top 5 Best games ever, so I wish I could have voted three of the four spots for Lara Croft. She's also the best character in a computer game, because she can be anything, just like a real girl.

I also really liked Civilization and Sim City. The original Final Fantasys on Nintendo were great. I have played so many games, on so many platforms, but Tomb Raider was the one that was most innovative and such a sheer pleasure to immerse in, that it makes most other games pale in comparison.

That's why I am here. I love this game! :D

I just checked, you can register with as many email addresses you can think of. No limit, no validation.

So if you are bored ...

I voted yesterday; for Lara of course, and (because I had to) for Fox McCloud, Castlevania and Final fantasy. Then to Peter Molyneux and Sid Meier's for lifetime achievement. The competition is rough, but at least I'm Lara's man. :cool:

tombraider is winning again now but Peter Molyneux is behind, and populous is a great game.

If Lara wins then Eidos will definately have to hire a model.... to pick up the prize. :) Just checked the results.. Lara is winning by 1.5% Maybe the key is to wait until the last minute and vote like crazy making it impossible for the Sims voters to catch up. ;)


YAY my 1000th post!!! :D Only 1400 more to go to catch up to CS&P. :)

Just make sure you check the ranking before you vote for other games. ;)

I was wondering about the same thing. I vote every day, and Lara is still second :(

The Sims is an online game, so the players speak to each other more consistantly than with any single player game. I think that fact alone should have made two catagories.

I can't see an option on that website to view the rankings until after you vote, could you point me in the right direction? :confused:

You are right. It won't let you.

But we can park the link here:

Last time I checked, Lara was even behind STARCRAFT in like 5th or 6th place. We need to keep voting, people. :mad:

EverQuest 37.1%
Final Fantasy 28.1%
StarCraft 24.8%
Lara Croft (Tomb Raider) 23.8%
The Sims 23.6%

I think she's doing pretty good since all those other games have some sort of online componant. She's the only one in the top who's making it by herself.

But we all know she needs to be Number One....so keep voting. :)

Maybe everyone was started out with 10%, just so they would not get any sympathy votes???? I don't know.

I didn't check, but I think it adds up to 400. 4 Votes, you know. It is not correct, but certainly a way of looking at things. :D

Maybe at the last second other games' fans got the Starcraft voting script, or maybe even though they said "vote every day", they meant not to? :rolleyes:
