The word is out: Lara Croft is apparently going to have a better game than Nathan Drake. The genius predictors cite things like her games originally innovating the genre itself and the beautiful new game she is set to star in, simply titled Tomb Raider, as proof of her triumphant return and domination of the witty protagonist from Sony’s blockbuster exclusive this generation. I agree with everything these people are saying…except for when they say it will be objectively “better” than Uncharted. Of course, just like this theory I am arguing against, this is simply one lone opinion. However, I hope that after reading this, you might see things a bit differently.
I have decided to break down this article into different arguments that people make for why Tomb Raider will be better and answer each of them individually.
