Drake vs. Croft: Who Would Win?
With all the hoopla surrounding Rise of the Tomb Raider and the exclusive deal with Xbox, it got me thinking:
Back when Uncharted was first revealed, Naughty Dog was accused of copying Tomb Raider and basically creating a male Lara Croft. Of course, as far as I'm concerned, Nathan Drake's adventures have been head-and-shoulders ahead of just about every other game available, and that includes any game Lara Croft has ever starred in.
But anyway, even though RotTR is just a timed exclusive for Microsoft, there are sure to be plenty of PlayStation vs. Xbox wars started by Uncharted 4: A Thief's End vs. Rise of the Tomb Raider. That's not always the most productive, though, as rampant immaturity typically takes hold. How's about we make it more fun? Who would win in a one-on-one fight? Nathan Drake or Lara Croft? Who has the edge? I suppose in terms of brute force, Drake has the advantage just 'cuz he's a dude, but Lara might be more agile. Remember, as evidenced in most of her games, she's basically a freakin' acrobat.
So, who wins and why? What do you say?
