Tomb Raider teaser trailer gives Lara pause

We've seen Lara Croft submerged, bruised, bloodied, and even do her first murder, but this teaser trailer for Spike's Video Game Awards on Friday is a bit more of a reflective moment. The new Tomb Raider game is all about Lara growing (and hardening) from a typical college student into a strong, confident, shoot-you-if-you-get-between-me-and-my-artifacts treasure hunter. Looks like, before then, she has a choice to make.

We have the sneaking suspicion that craggy mountain faces won't be the only thing Lara embeds that climbing pick in when the game releases March 5, 2013 on PC, PlayStation 3, and Xbox 360. For more VGA reveals as they happen, keep an eye on GamesRadar Friday evening.
