Carl Williams writes, “Lara Croft GO is one of those “chances” that companies sometimes take on franchises. Starting out as a 3D third person adventure game starring Lara Croft, Tomb Raider set new interest in gaming. It could be that the main character was a female and the developers made sure she was scantily clad – maybe to entice the mostly male gaming audience of the mid 90’s into buying it. The character, Lara Croft, has transcended her role as eye candy to something more akin to the action characters she was fashioned after. Square Enix have not kept her tied up with 3D third person action games either.”
