That was exactly the point that was made though

It feels weird to me that the PS4/X1 era is already ending, it doesn't feel like it actually lasted a decent amount of time.

I'm so ready to see how things are going to look next gen though

Better.
Just not PS1-to-PS2 level of better.

I think the plan for next generation is to make things easier with no loss in graphical fidelity (e.g. going for real time processing instead of baked/prerendered effects) while being able to deliver on the gameplay and framerate, rather than just make the games look "better" (whatever that means).

I really don't get why your so anal about Shadow not being on 360, 360 is a dead console, dead in the water and will never be supported by any company again ever.
I find your honesty, quite refreshing charmedangelin. Some people just don't understand that it would have wasted Eidos or another company's time and effort to port SOTTR to last gen consoles with substantial downgrades when they needed to focus on delivering the game to a certain standard on current gen consoles and PC. If they committed to such an ill advised strategy, it would have been a nonsensical move at best.

But were people really expecting a old-gen version of SotTR? RotTR still came during the transition period (late transition if we are honest) and only because of the exclusivity deal. Feasible or not, a last-gen version of SotTR would be a very bad decision, especially for consoles which stopped being produced two (XB360) or one year (PS3) before the games release.

Now, a Switch version would have been swell, but still, considering the engine probably doesn't natively support the console, and that it would definitely need a lot of proper optimization (especially Paititi), I also can see why we didn't get it in there either. But hey, if Dragon Quest XI S is a success, maybe that will make SE port more current games to the switch, and we can have proper portable Tomb Raider games.

It feels like PS4 and XB1 came out no later than three years ago. How has it already been 5 years??

I feel one of the reasons it's the lowest rated is because simply following the main game without doing any of the optional tombs makes the game feel incomplete. I imagine some reviewers just breezed through it and didn't take part in the best parts of the game, the tombs. This is why I feel those tombs should have been incorporated as part of the main game and not optional.

SOTTR is my fav in the trilogy for sure, but if someone is skipping optional tombs altogether, the first two in the trilogy would feel more complete.

It's really weird, the trilogy feels like the same game and so different at the same time, I think it's that Lara differs in each game but the gameplay feels alike

Because they released a half-baked 2013 game in 2018.
