Tomb Raider star Lara Croft has come up trumps in this year's Guinness World Records 2011 Gamer's Edition. The British archaeologist scores 7th on a list of the 50 top video-game characters of all time, as voted for by readers of the book. Nintendo's Mario was crowned the people's favourite video-game character receiving over 10% of the vote.

"The world has seen so many pivotal characters throughout the history of gaming that asking our readers to narrow it down to just 50 was a challenge in itself," says Gaz Deaves, Guinness World Records Gaming Editor. "Some of the choices on the list are obvious, some less so, but it's sure to get gamers talking about their favourites."

Link (The Legend of Zelda, Nintendo), Master Chief (Halo), Solid Snake (Metal Gear), Cloud Strife (Final Fantasy), PAC-Man (PAC-Man), Gordon Freeman (Half Life), Kratos (God of War) and Sonic (Sonic the Hedgehog) complete the top ten.
