first of all, I wanted to apologize from the title of this post, but I guess it can't hurt to have a few more people looking around the blog, even if it's for the wrong reasons ;)

This choice comes a bit as a surprise for me, because I confess I was expecting to see some kind of close tie-in between Metroid and Metal Gear. Metroid made indeed a nice score, with 5 votes among 23, but Snake didn't get any vote. At all! Well, I'm guessing Lara's dreamy assets and nice adventure setting was more appealing than Snake's Modern Cold War universe. So Lara took the lead with almost half the votes (10 among 23), while the rest of the franchises shared the rest of the votes, with 2 votes for Silent Hill / Dizzy / Jak and Daxter, and only 1 vote for Mario RPGs and Wonder Boy.
Here is the rundown of the titles for the Tomb Raider series :
SERIES D : TOMB RAIDER
|D1 - Tomb Raider||1996||PSX|
|D2 - Tomb Raider II||1997||PSX|
|D3 - Tomb Raider III||1998||PSX|
|D4 - Tomb Raider : The Last Revelation||1999||PSX|
|D5 - Tomb Raider||2000||GBC|
|D6 - Tomb Raider Chronicles||2000||PSX|
|D7 - Tomb Raider : Curse of the Sword||2001||GBC|
|D8 - Tomb Raider : The Prophecy||2002||GBA|
|D9 - Tomb Raider : The Angel of Darkness||2003||PS2|
|D10 - Tomb Raider : Legend||2006||PS2|
|D11 - Tomb Raider : Anniversary||2007||PS2|
|D12 - Tomb Raider : Underworld||2008||PS3|
|D13 - Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light||2010||PS3|
|D14 - Tomb Raider||2012||PS3|
So that's another series with 14 games in it... We're in for the long run, my friends...
|Then again, I can imagine worse company...|
The other poll was what I'd call a zombie success. Almost everyone of the voters went for keeping the Resident Evil series a part of this blog. I'm very happy about this result, because I was worried my first choice of franchise might have been a bad one. I'm happy to see a lot of you guys wanting to keep this franchise among us. Guess I'll be back to killing zombies soon!
Concerning the work at hand, it will be again a few days before I can reinstall my TV set and my PS3, and go back into the dark world of the Legacy of Kain. I'll go for the third game in each of the existent franchises before trying to play the first Tomb Raider, because I think no one want to make A Link to the Past wait more than it should do. You can see the new list of games in the master game list somewhere in the northeastern region of the blog.
See you very soon!
Keep you posted.
