A VETERAN gamer has admitted he found Lara Croft sexier when she only had 250 polygons.
Nathan Muir believes Croft, who celebrates her 20th anniversary today, was far more attractive on the original PlayStation before she got all fancy with curves and multiple light sources.
He continued: “What can I say? I like my women blocky.
“For a few years there, while Lara still had that innocent painted-on smile and those beguilingly ill-fitting arm joints, she was my perfect girl.
“She’d dance to my sensitive touch on the controller, her body responding in ways the laws of physics would make impossible in this world, never complaining when I sent her to her death.
“But then she got more sophisticated, started to talk instead of just grunting, developed individually separated buttocks instead of a single mass, and the magic was gone.
“I’m sorry, Lara. I’m just a 32-bit guy.”
Muir added: “Also, I preferred your breasts enormous and ending in a sharp geometric point.”
