[ February 4th 2008 ]

British aristocrat Lara Croft has been anointed into the Guinness World Records Gamers' Edition. The Tomb Raider star has scored her own double-page spread packed full of facts including fastest selling Tomb Raider game, highest grossing motion picture, most recognisable female video-game character along with trivia and information for the most ardent of fans.

One prominent entry of note is fastest Tomb Raider competition time, an accolade held by Stacy Corron who managed to finish the original Tomb Raider adventure in an incredible 2 hours, 39 minutes and 30 seconds with no less than two smoking thumbs.

Top tips are also featured, including directions to a secret treasure room hidden in Tomb Raider II. Other hidden gems include Toby Gard's classic "mouse slipped, honest Gov!" rebuttal when designing the finer proportions of Lara Croft, and a revelation that Lara Croft was originally to be named Laura Cruz in order to appeal to a wider U.S. audience.

Guinness is currently recruiting gamers for sensational world records to be included in the new Gamers' Edition, launching in February 2008. If you think your name should be in the ultimate guide to the greatest computer and video-game facts and feats, direct your mouse to the fetching orange hyperlink and stake your claim.
