    I have survived some of this actually, I even had combo's! I burned my arms as a young lad (just learned walking, but not good as this story will show) and we had a fireplace thing with glass plates in front of it. Burned me arms on them, but my father (long story, don't ask) thought it was my head and he drowned me, but in lara's defense, I wasn't trying to survive in a jungle at the time and they say that kids bounce back easier then adults.

    Ha, the ad at the bottom of my page is for Bear Grylls' book. Makes me laugh

    Y'know, I was thinking for the first few "injuries" that Lara could have, maaaayyybe, survived. And then the whole Bear-Trap-to-the-ankle thing showed up

    "The fact that she doesn't seem to notice the cold actually suggests that the problem is more than a minor one, requiring immediate attention." this bit cracked me up lol

    yes game characters often are superhumans, point of this article was?
  • kit07 - June 27, 2012 10:57 p.m.

    a fun read for someone who visits Gamesradar? I know I enjoyed it.
  • gilgamesh310 - June 28, 2012 4:30 a.m.

    The whole point of this game was that they are trying to make Lara more vulnerable and human. They clearly fucked it up by making her superhuman.
  • MasterBhater - June 28, 2012 8:52 a.m.

    She's not exactly superhuman-just a really tough sonoffabitch Of course, if you count in any of the times people are shooting at her...well, then shes like every other character in a third-person action game

    If you read the title, you'd see the point. If someone were to survive ALL THAT, I'd be very impressed that they could still look as good as Lara does in her older exploits. But with wealth like hers, I'm sure she can afford the best plastic surgery and transplants money can buy.

    My exact reasoning for Lara Croft being the most badass character in video gaming. Sure, Master Chief is badass, but he's got that kick ass armor. She's just a regular, slightly acrobatic, all hot, millionaire, tomb raider (wink wink). You also forgot freaking dinosaur attacks. Of all things how could you forget freaking velociraptors?

    You forgot to mention explosions. How on Earth did Lara survive all those times in TR II when I used the explosion code? She was like like Dr. Manhattan since she always came back togeher when I restarted the level, only not naked. Though she could be naked in TR III with the X-Ploder cheat device, which did not make her blow up.

    This kinda article... It's exactly the kind of stuff that made old GR the holy entity it was. Keep it up!
  • hullonotna - June 27, 2012 3:27 p.m.

    Few things to add. There is also exhaustion, the minor scrapes and bruises, punches to the face, and if not treated soon she will die a slow and painful death by infection. Does not matter if it is the bear trap, broken/damaged arm, burns, impale wounds, or a paper cut that she might have gotten. Give it a few days and it will get infected.

    When did Tomb Raider stop being about evil puzzles and exploration with nothing but her guns to keep her company and turn into a masochist's snuff film fantasy? No thanks.
  • KNITEpanda - June 27, 2012 2:57 p.m.

    Have you no knowledge of this new Tomb Raider game? This is when Lara is still young...what basically first started her adventures. If you truly WERE a fan of the series, you WOULD pick up this game.
  • gilgamesh310 - June 27, 2012 1:25 p.m.

    The bear trap alone was taking things too far. Everything else on top of it just turns it into a cartoon.
  • ZhugeLiang - June 27, 2012 1:01 p.m.

    Well, I'm not sure, but since you asked, I'm gonna go try all of these. I'll report back once I've finished.
  • blake-pobst - June 27, 2012 12:42 p.m.

    its ok GR...we all want to see Lara naked..wait, what?? ;)
  • Redeater - June 27, 2012 12:10 p.m.

    Pretty sure I could have survived everything that has happened to her except for Chronicles and Angel of Darkness. Some wounds you just don't make a full recovery from....
