I agree that Tomb Raider didn't get its just dues in the deliberations but it has nothing to do with sexism as much as I think that last generation we had a franchise called Uncharted did almost every single thing that game did only with better characters. The story was forgettable, the action was OK but too frequent, and the characters were archetypal bored. I enjoyed the game a lot but it was nowhere near my top 10 games this year.
Also, stating Lara is some feminist idol is idiotic, at least in this case. Her character is not strong...she's near immortal and virtually indestructible. She has no interesting story besides the trope of "I've crashed on an island full of people who want to kill me." Tomb Raider was fun but the game didn't do anything to move the genre forward but it did potentially lay a groundwork for an actually original Tomb Raider game. How about a game where the developers didn't create a torture porn fun land and are trying to emotionally manipulate me into "caring" for this character?
@cornbredx : Which is an idiotic argument, honestly. Lara is, at best, a placeholder character in that game with no real substance beyond being a punching bag for 8-10 hours while you Uncharted around an island. Stating that TR didn't make it into anyone's top 10 because "Well, men" is a dumb argument and a way to bring up the cliche argument of "men wouldn't understand". This would be like saying Starhawk didn't wind up on someone's top 10 the year it came out because "you know, white people".
