Tomb Raider vs. Uncharted
I've got a soft spot for Lara Croft. I love assessing new environments and figuring out how to get her to raid whichever tomb she's elected to desecrate. There's a sense of exploration and spatial problems that I enjoy in her games. Nathan Drake, on the other hand, offers a contiguous series of comical leaps of faith. I do want to make it clear that the Uncharted games are distinctly superior to this generation's crop of Tomb Raider releases; they're far more polished and impressively cinematic. It's just that Nathan Drake succeeds by the merits of his heroic buffoonery and stubborn will as opposed to any genuine resourcefulness - and that's part of his charm.
I wish I could get a Tomb Raider game with the production value of Uncharted.
