In a recent survey conducted by the team at “Tomb Raider: The Live Experience” (based in Camden, London), Lara Croft was voted as “the most iconic female gaming hero” of all time in the UK with 63% of the votes! In second place was Princess Peach with 34% of the votes and 31% going to Princess Zelda.
