My mind is blown! It’s been several days and I STILL can’t stop smiling just thinking about how much fun I had livestreaming Tomb Raider Definitive Edition at the Crystal Dynamics office. Lara Croft has been my biggest role model ever since I was a kid, and as cheesy at it sounds, she helped shape me into the person I am today. I can remember throughout my teenage years especially, I looked up to Lara Croft as my inspiration – someone I wanted to be like, even though she wasn’t “real.” One thing is for sure, she will always be real to me and continue to be an inspiration in my life forever.
I could go on and on, and frankly, some of you might think I am crazy for letting a game series and fictional protagonist influence my life as much as they have, but hey… that’s me. Life is what you make it, and I honestly feel I would be a completely different person had I never stumbled on Tomb Raider. Pretty amazing how a video game can be such an inspiration, but I personally find it a testament to the magnitude of greatness creativity can achieve. I will always be grateful to Core Design, Eidos Interactive, Crystal Dynamics, and Square Enix for both creating and continuing the legacy that is Tomb Raider.
Now that I’ve got all the sappiness out of my system, I want to share this video with all of you showcasing some of my favorite moments during the Tomb Raider Definitive Edition livestream. I truly had one of the greatest days of my life at the Crystal Dynamics office that day, and I cannot thank both the team there and YOU GUYS enough for all of your support and making this dream a reality.
