Even without Elena, Drake would be unworthy. His finds are so insignificant compared to Lara's. Sure he found a lost city or 2, and the proverbial "fountain of youth", but that doesn't compare to Atlantis, Excalibur, Mjolnir, The Dagger of Xian, and Yamatai.
As for TCs question, there's few human video game characters as Iconic as Lara, she's up there with Mario and Pikachu. I don't think there's any VG character worthy of her.
One of the proud people that still plays Mirror's Edge to this day. Not changing my sig until DICE officially announces Mirror's Edge 2
