I thought there had been a reply to this actually, did someone delete a post?

Well if you're curious and you're not afraid of teenage humor, there IS a movie called "The girl next door"!

I think this is an interesting thread. Agree with everyone's points! Even as a nine year old I was relieved to find a main hero who didn't just have big muscles and a machine gun, a normal working marriage and pregnancy (imagine that!), and a woman who could fix a car. In my marriage today too, I can't seem to do anything practical no matter how I try, but my wife can fix mechanical puzzles and then some.

It's worth noting a key original creator of the first Tomb Raider, Toby Gard, left the franchise after the first game (and sacrificed a lot of money in doing so) because of how he saw Laura getting sexualised in the sequels. He went on to make that game Galleon.

Also, Benoît Limare has said on Facebook that that new LBA concept art everyone is upset about won't be used, so nobody needs to worry about that. The newer image represents where they're at.

Shame about Toby Gard, Galleon doesn't seem to have hit that well (of course it's difficult to compare to a legend such as tomb raider)

About the artwork yes I feel like we need to wait for them to actually produce something. I think this artwork was just to show there are new things happening, it was not an advanced sketch of how things will look like

I may go to BDSM parties, but I still do not know exactly what a girl-next-door is...

Haha then not so innocent I see

I would say the girl next door is a sexual fantasy/stereotype of your average girl neighbor

it is a stereotype ofcourse, but you otherwise have to talk about individual people.

it's hard to define really, because i never met a girl and thought 'oh she's type girl next door'. But Tomb Raider presents basically how super models looked like in the 90's, and I often didn't find them interesting, and rather prefered the girls in my class :P

It's not porn jargon!

Girl Next Door is a female character archetype, basically the love interest who is supposed to be down to earth or unpretentious. Natural, is often the main characters closest female friend and the two will have pretended they're just friends for most of their lives until a more glamorous and more worldly woman comes along, a love triangle happens and the main character ends up with the girl next door anyway.

If it's still not clear, TVtropes will have a more in depth explanation and examples.
