Or maybe she wanted a clearer shot, she was moving closer all the time and not just standing idle afterall.

Yeah I yelled at Lara to shoot him. But she just listened to his madness or aimed her arrow and did nothing. The scenes with Sam over his important organs I can sort of get, maybe she was afraid of accidentally shooting Sam but that scene where Mathias and Sam are at that pyre and she aims just to shoot that useless dude behind him does not make sense. What are the solarii going to do without their leader? They are going to go into panic or a catatonic state. Then again she might have to free Sam and fight her way out of geothermal caverns and I forgot that's too ridiculous for this reboot. There were other chances to retrieve Sam though.

If he was a goner then that whole sequence where we chased his ass was a waste of time, both in narrative and real time. He wasn't a goner until that Solarii showed up and Lara just let him die. Anyway you slice it to me that was just...that whole situation was clumsily written and dumb and I wanted to express that.

Well it was obvious to me the way he gurgled that he was a goner, dunno about you. I watched the cutscene again and still don't find anything iffy. Funny how things seem totally different to different people. The purpose of that sequence was to get Lara separated from the rest and into the Chasm monastery I guess.

i'm pretty sure lara shot that guy because he was about to light the pyre that sam was tied to.

Let's not forget the time when Lara casually greeted Sam, after struggling to survive and hadn't seen each other since their ship crashed, and then told campfire stories with someone who was clearly a creep. :p

here is something quite interesting

Don't know what to think of that... It can't be bad, can it?

So just a larger and more public focus test type thing. I don't think anything good ever comes out of that methodology to be honest.
