1) Fighting a T-Rex
Having dispatched with a couple of troublesome Raptors, Lara finds herself on the run from an oddly polygonal Tyrannosaurus Rex.

Can I do it in Anniversary?

In the last two years, youve done it all in San Andreas. Dove out of planes, ran the marathon and shot Bigfoot. Wait… you didnt find Bigfoot? No, were only kidding. But then again, there may be a lot of things you dont know about one of the greatest and largest games for the PS2. Enjoy.

Late last year we brought you the Platinum Chalice awards. It was a celebration about everything that made gaming too damn cool in 2006. But the sad consequence of having two system launches and more than five actively supported consoles and handhelds on top of that was... a glut. A glut of awesome games, to be sure, but also a glut of utter shit.

It's cool to believe in something, to have an undying passion for your hobby. When it comes to gaming, we'll defend our views to the bitter end. But sometimes we all go a little too far, skating a fine line between fan and fanboy. How close are you? Read on...
Step 1 - Swear that system X has no good games. At all.
The self-proclaimed "hardcore" may read up on every game, discuss every game and spout what we try to pass off as authoritative opinions on every game... but none of us actually
