And it's a very toxic attitude because by that logic, you would never be able to be a part of a fandom that's not completely new and you're suggesting that those new people (who in TR's case bring more money than the actual core fandom) should be taken less in consideration, which goes completely against any logical business decision.

There needs to be a middle ground in all cases and the devs and the studio need to better balance the franchise by giving us new and exciting mechanics, new stories, new layers to the character, etc, while also trying to give long time fans some cool nods, classic outfits and updated mechanics that would fit the current vision and that would also attract new costumers.

I truly feel like the Reboot era has been great so far (specially in the gameplay department) and I get the feeling that some more nods to the classics (like modernized outfits instead of tribal ones), a little more sarcastic humor for Lara and a more recognizable look (duals and a backpack) would've made the most vicious haters be more positive about it, because honestly, the gameplay has been really good, and the puzzles and tombs, specially in Shadow are top notch.
Quit being dramatic and twisting my words. I’m saying that changing the fundamentals of a game and changing the main character completely for the sole purpose of catering to an audience that didn’t play the game before alienates the audience that the game originally catered too. This says that the casual gamers dollar is valued more than the audience that was already there, the people that supported the franchise are tossed aside and left in the dust.

Of course you don’t see the problem with this because the franchise is currently catering to you, a demographic that the game wasn’t originally created to cater too.
