Tomb Raider matters to a lot of people, but why tho?

In today’s episode, we look at some of the things that make passionate fanboys and fangirls. We look at the impact Tomb Raider had on the gaming industry, Lara Croft’s contested status as sex symbol and feminist hero, and we tackle the videogame movie, and how Angelina Jolie stands as one of the best incarnations of a character.
