I Love 1996

Lara Croft
RealMedia: Lara Croft

Tomb Raider

It was every teenage boy's fantasy - a shoot 'em up computer game starring an impossibly buxom babe in hotpants and a tank top.

The original Tomb Raider adventure game sold over 3 million copies, spawned four sequels and a movie, starring actress Angelina Jolie.

Lara Croft became a cultural icon, discussed by learned academics on Radio 4 as much as by adolescent boys behind the bike sheds.
