This week's contest topic was inspired by a post by GracefulDemon on the Eidos Tomb Raider Forums titled "Who wants to play with Amanda Evert instead of Lara Croft? Me." GD took a lot of heat for suggesting that Amanda star in her own game, but I think she made some very good points. Don't get me wrong. I love playing as Lara, but wouldn't it be cool to wield the Wrath Stone's powers or unleash the Unknown Entity on your foes?
We've had a chance to play as Kurtis Trent in Angel of Darkness and the Doppelgänger in Lara's Shadow. Soon we'll get to play as the Mayan hero Totec in Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light. So who would you like to see as a playable character in a Tomb Raider game?
It could be someone—hero, villain or minor character—who's already appeared in the series, a character from another game, book, movie, etc., or someone you've created yourself. Let your imagination run wild!
For a chance to win a copy of Lara's Book by Douglas Coupland, post a comment below, send me an , post on my Facebook page or YouTube channel, or send me a message on Xbox LIVE (gamertag: Stellalune).
