15Impaled – Tomb Raider
2013’s Tomb Raider reboot gave the series a breath of fresh air, bringing the action-adventure franchise back into the spotlight. The game featured a reinvented Lara Croft as fans played as a more vulnerable, inexperienced version of the iconic character. Some of that inexperience comes into play during deaths scenes
found in the game. Aside from trigger-happy bad guys and wild animals on the prowl, the environment itself serves as just as great a danger to Lara on her journey. One of the most shocking death scenes in the game occurs should the player fail to maneuver Lara out of the way of incoming debris. This triggers a short cut scene where Lara is impaled right through her throat, be it by a branch, pipe or whatever other wreckage is lying around – depending on the environment.
