Kinda ironic that you have an AoD avatar and post "negative" things about AoD. Though I totally agree with your points.

- TR I is overrated. Yes, it's the first game in the series, but it lacks a lot of polishing and refinement.
- Keeley Hawes doesn't suit Lara as her voice. Nothing against her, but when she's the VA of Lara the calmness of her voice doesn't match the things Lara does during gameplay and in general she sounds rather like someone sitting in an armchair next to a fire place and telling stories. Though I don't blame Keeley for this but rather the voice over director who seems to have no clue about who Lara Croft is.
- The reboot games are better than the LAU trilogy but not quite as good as the classics.
- Legend is probably the best LAU game since it's the most polished one, though for a TR game it's still pretty bad.
- LAU does a bad job at imitating the classics and feels more like a parody.
- Kurtis is an interesting character who would've deserved to get his own game.
- The Xbox exclusivity deal was bad, but not as bad as some people make it out to be.
- Carter Bell is underrated and doesn't get enough mentions by us.

Never forget: Gameplay is king!
