I've been watching some of the reaction and video reviews of the new Tomb Raider and have come to the realisation that people still... TO THIS DAY... pronounce "Lara" wrong. And these are people in the video games business, y'know, the one group that should know better!
Just for clarification, it is pronounced LAR-RA... not LA-RA or LAW-RA.
I'm not really sure why this bothered me so much, but I couldn't believe that notable members of the industry were pronouncing one of the most iconic names in video game history wrong. I mean, come on, the character's been around for 17 years now.
Feel free to tell me I'm wrong, I'd love to hear an argument from someone who does pronounce it differently.
