I'm just starting this game again.

I totally forgot how much they overdo the daddy stuff in the opening, like they REALLY lay it on thick.
I mean I never minded all that in LAU but c'mon guys...let the poor thing scavenge some clout for herself.

Also still all this crying out and whimpering. Come on girl, you should be at least a little bit tougher after Yamatai.

I mean it’s right after she figured her dad was right about everything she thought he was wrong for. So of course it would be only right for her to be doing so. Also, it starts off with her using her dad’s research and feeling bad that she didn’t believe him, it then turned to her wanting answers for herself and wanted to find everything for herself, that’s why she became obsessed with finishing her quest. Then the crying out and whimpering she is still new at this, this is her first real adventure. She’s much tougher but not a teflon army tank. I’m pretty sure we’d be whimpering and crying too lol.

I guess you're right. A little "I can handle this, I've had worse" energy would have been nice though after seeing everything she could put up with.

I was at that part where you escape from the Gulag and she bashes a hole in the wall, disappears through the gap and when I came back through moments later and saw Jacob just standing there gawking at Lara the perfect line for that moment hit me.

"...hello again"

That would have been the perfect kind of energy for Rise Lara imo. Far from 100% confident and in control, but a little touch of gallows humor here and there, just enough confidence in herself from the reboot to give her just a little cheekiness from time to time, the little spark of something that tells us that deep down, she might actually be enjoying herself and getting a taste fir this kind of thing.

the one thing that stuck with me since my first playthrough is how out of character this line from Lara sounds.

https://youtu.be/CeJL6igPsNo?t=740

It's like... there's no buildup or context to justify that switch in tone and behaviour. at first I thought wth is she was hitting up on him or something?

just a random thought.

It's a strange thing that Rise despite having the best wardrobe in the reboot trilogy still doesn't have one main outfit to represent the game setting (Even the remnant one which she mostly wears was just meh and doesn't appeal much) while we have an iconic outfit in the 2013 game which represents survival aspect and the tactical adventurer as the main one for shadow. Just an unpopular opinion.
