EL 250 How far is too far Ms. Croft?
In one depiction we see Lara Croft as a sex object, in the other we see her as a strong female. The role of Lara Croft is characterized as a contrast. Being built as a strong woman may gain the female community while as a sex object gains a male perspective. Gender roles in video games are of designation. I can see what graphic designers go through in order to get an audience. I can remember playing the first Tomb Raider, the lead character, Lara Croft, was built and sexy as most of my friends saw her, but I saw her as a video game character. One that had the role of taking on certain adventures. I guess that's what they mean in the saying "sex sells". Ses sells video games as well as it does anything else.
