The Achievement crabs, as I call them, in Tomb Raider are so petty and insignificant, you’d be forgiven for missing them entirely. However, Crystal Dynamics--creator of the latest game--decided that you definitely need to see and murder the little fellas, so it included an Achievement / Trophy for doing so. It’s called Crab Cakes, FYI. I’d have called it (*straightens tie a fourth, and final time) ‘I fought the claw, and the claw won’.
My question is: what did these poor crabs ever do to Lara? Ok, she butchers the deer at the start because she’s hungry, and fair play: the wolves are just asking for it. But the crabs? Lara doesn’t even eat them. She just guns them down to fulfil some kind of dark, sociopathic urge. She’s drunk on death, and in the absence of any actual humans to perform brutal melee executions on, she spends time on the beach shooting innocent animals. No, don't come near me--I don’t know you anymore, Lara!
