I've said it before, I really miss Croft Manor and the last time we had it properly was in 2007. I just wanted it back already no matter if it finally got here with Shadow. I wouldn't like Shadow more just because it's the game that got the manor

Anyway they're pretty much forced to touch on more Classic stuff after all the backlash from Shadow and its dlcs. The duals for example are likelier than ever

The thread title should be fixed : had*

Reboot Lara may not had as much impact as Classic Lara, but thereís still hope.

Well it's not a competition we aren't in Rurupaul Drag Race there's a place for everyone and Lara's (core/crystal/movies) legacy will remain anyway.

Post the source. Otherwise it means nothing. Not that I think you did, but you could have written that yourself.

But congrats, I'll give you that someone occasionally mentions the reboot. However, most gaming media doesn't and it's more often overlooked. Out of all the top lists I've seen on YouTube during this past month, the reboot trilogy hasn't been mentioned once.

Adding to what already has been said about the character herself, I've been thinking about the possibility that Reboot Lara is only part of the gaming community, hence why she's not very talked about.

I'm saying that with Classic Lara, even people who never played the game knew about the character. Ok, I guess word from players would spread and be loud, since a character like her would be a big deal at the time, but there's also the marketing for products that didn't have to do anything with the game, like beverages and cars, that featured Lara, which would reach the general public. Then there would be the references of her in other shows/movies/games.

The most Reboot Lara had to reach the general public was the movie, which did okay for what it seems, but will mean that the general public will forget about it in the long run. Other than that, who else knows about reboot Lara? Gamers.
