Default Did you like Winston's new design ?

I personally liked the old one from TR 2,3,5 better since the one in LAU trilogy looked similar to Alfred from Batman.

I wasn't a so big fan of his new design either...

Its missing the tray, a vital part of his character and he only stands in one place.

To be fair, he does creepily teleport himself from where you've just seen him to places right before you get there.

Unfortunately he is also less interact-able.(In TR 2 you can make imprison him. In 3 they improved it and allowed you to shoot at him which was kinda funny.)

God no.



Then in TRU he looks like a male-to-female-who-changed-his-mind-again-transsexual with threaded eyebrows.

@_Seth: it's not fun to joke about transgender people...


About Winston, I didn't liked his new design either but the worst part is actually his personnality, even in TRU. Knowing Lara since so long and being able to see him talk with her for the first time in 10 years, I hoped he would have been different than that.

I liked him better in Chronicles.

Yes. I like how he's just "there" in Legend's Manor and how he teleports in Anniversary. I also like how he is portrayed as a character in Legend and Underworld. He genuinely cares and looks after Lara and he's more fleshed out. I also liked his personality in Chronicles, or rather the fact that he finally had a personality after three years. I don't like his Underworld update though. While Lara, Zip and Natla look like better versions of their former models, Winston, Alister and Amanda might as well be completely new and uglier characters. For Winston's new model in particular I feel they may have tried to make a mix of Legend Winston with Chronicles Winston.

Winston in TRII and III following you around and making creepy sounds is kinda annoying but not enough for me to lock him in the freezer. That's too much 😂

L / A Winston > Chronicles Winston > Underworld Winston > TRII / III Winston

He looks fine to me. I didn't like his tie in Underworld though: butlers should wear bow ties...

I donít dislike it, he still seemed like a kind old butler like the classic version, but I prefer the original design just because he always seemed like that sweet, old man. Idk, maybe that sounds odd, but still.

One issue in Legend (canít remember about Anniversary) is that he looked like a puppet sometimes around the mouth. Weird.
