Agreed. It imho wasn’t a reference to anything. Not trying to sound bitter or anything, btw. But it definitely was handled better than Rise’s opening...

If there was any indication, I'd say it was in RoTR, the engine on the mountain peak... who knows.

I doubt it. There was a reference to that in Rise when we learned Amelia died after a plane crash in the Himalayas.

I mean, most of Amelia's backstory was basically a nod to classic Lara's.

But yeah, I think the plane crash in Peru was just to the new "excuse" to have Lara lose her gear (which she basically recovers in full in like 10 minutes), I think it was unrelated to her previous backstory.

I hope your overall experience with the game gets better once you play a bit more.
After the plane crash I'm enjoying it a lot more: exploring this beautiful area and being the first to discover that ancient temples. It's a really good atmosphere. That should have been the start of the game (maybe with that mansion mini-level as a tutorial).

WHO approved this game's outfits 2 years later and I'm still wondering how these abominations could possibly make it in the game thank god for the AoD skin

Good to hear!
The last big hub in the game has a similar vibe to it, only a bit different. I‘m sure you‘ll enjoy that part too.

There, I felt like your post could use some fixing

But yeah, it's pretty mesmerizing how any of this sounded like a good idea to the devs

Still far better than Shadow's whole outfit selection. Wish it had Rise's detail, but apparently the Rise outfits got worse too not just the classic skins. This game butchered the Syria outfit and the leather jacket outfit completely, especially the latter which is weird considering it's an actual canonical outfit within the game. (The Nightmare and post credits)
