Ever since Tomb Raider came out in 1996, Lara Croft has been one of the most recognisable icons in video games. Since then the franchise has spawned two separate film series and a number of spin-off games and reboots. Uncharted, meanwhile, started in 2007 and has since become one of Sony's biggest and most beloved exclusives.
Both series feature intrepid, wisecracking protagonists; both take us on wild journeys around the world; and both contain similar mixes of explosive action and inventive exploration. But which franchise is better?
We decided to sit down and have a lighthearted but passionate debate about which series we prefer. Fighting for Lara Croft and Tomb Raider is Tamoor Hussain, who longs for the days of dual-wielding pistols to return. Batting for Uncharted, meanwhile, is Oscar Dayus, who actually bases his own appearance on a young Nathan Drake.
Watch the video above to see how the debate turned out. The discussion begins with randomly selected topics, and the pair argue in support of their respective picks. Alongside the serious analysis of each side, there's also some friendly fun-making and jokes at each other's expense. Be sure to watch till the end to see the quick-fire round, which gets a little goofy.
Last week we put The Witcher III: Wild Hunt up against The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild to decide which of the two is the best open-world game, and Dave Jewitt's magnificent Geralt-like beard helped him defeat Zelda fan Will Potter.
