Anyway, Lara Croft's big boobs were not an exploitation, nor did they necessarily represent a "sexualization" of the character. Nope... Lara's original, voluptuous figure simply added another dimension to the character, which can never be a bad thing within a work of fiction. Sex appeal, when handled adeptly, can produce a character who is far more complex and interesting than she would have been otherwise. And it is guaranteed to sell more units of the game.

Given the documented reason why Lara Croft's boobs grew that big, that's a somewhat bold claim to make. It was, in modern speak, the "sex appeal" slider being mishandled, after all. Not adeptly, but ineptly, so to speak. And I'm not exactly sure how bigger boobs make a character more complex and interesting. Particularly not as compared to all the of other female pop culture characters that have complex and interesting big boobs.

Still, Lara Croft was a late 90s Western action heroine. Quite a bit like Buffy and Xena. Anyone who thinks sex sells wasn't part of the marketing concept for these three is a fucking moron. But so is anyone who failed to notice that for the most part, so was their usually being kick-ass in control (okay, Buffy's crawling back to her vampire boys was a bit cringeworthy at times, but that's a different story). That was pretty cool and way ahead of its time. I mean, the Noughties gave us fucking Bella Swan. That's what the PC age tells young girls to be like!? FUCK THEM!

As for Lara's breast redux because PC, that's not something I'm into. It is a highly transparent marketing ploy to garner positive PR with a clientele that, from my experience, doesn't much care about games. Or, in choicer words, it simply tells us Square Enix management are cheap publicity whores. Yeah thanks, I'd rather be old-school Lara than them.

That said, uh... some of the posters here certainly sound like extremists on the other end of the spectrum. Now I remember why i only check in here every couple of years. Entirely comfortable, I don't feel.

I guess she was not part of the Wonder Woman age circa  late 70's and all of the comic books thats out there were she is big and short shorts.

I'm sorry you feel that way. I am quite certain that everyone here has always
been very kind and polite toward you, so perhaps you have other issues.
