Geez, I forgot about the marketing stuff. Forget what I said, the oversexualized Lara marketing should stay in the past.

Yep, it should.

Lara should be marketed as a badass (But still feminine) heroine.

- Crystal saves (though could be cool for a Deadly Obsession like mode)
- Minimal story
- Boss fights with no strategy except just bullets to defeat them

The rest like outdated graphics and controls, I don't define the Classics like that, it's just a thing of the time.

There's a lot of technical things that I wouldn't want to see again (which others have mentioned - the grid system, tank controls, etc), but there's no chance of those things coming back, anyway. There's only one thing I could really think of:

An overabundance of resources. I finished a replay of TR4 earlier this month and ended the game with over 100 flares and at least a dozen small and large medicals packs (though it was probably closer to 20 each). Finished with a crap ton of additional ammo too, although only for specific weapons - crossbow, namely. Thing is, the reboot games are already doing this...it's just never gone away since the classics. I'm talking about "IMPOSSIBLE, I can't carry anymore." Not saying they should makes resources crazy scarce, but when the player is constantly carrying the max amount of resources without even trying, you're missing a gameplay opportunity.

Apart the grid system and some extremely slow animations like climbings I like everything about the classics.

Yep, TR1 was really bad about this (If you find secrets you literally can just use the magnums/uzis for the rest of the game as soon as you finnd them.)

Only TR game to get it mostly right was TR3, but even that messed it up a bit, there was way too much MP5/Desert Eagle ammo and very little shotgun/Uzi ammo.

There is a lot more stuff that badly needs to come back and I don't want to diminish that but here goes
  • The crystal saves would just really annoy modern gamers
  • The precision needed to activate levers, buttons and get pickups just wouldn't work nowadays
  • The harpoon gun mechanics on there as it's useless and too slow.
  • The poison mechanic in TR3

I get the point on marketing but last thing we need to be doing is giving the devs more encouragement to make more of the drab and monotonous attire that we got in Shadow. We don't need oversexualisation but an approach like LAU would be massively better than what we have now.

^ I may disagree on the harpoon gun and poison effect, I want their return.

- controls
- supernatural stuff
- auto aim
- infinite ammo

I would like the backpack to return, or something similar where she stores ammo, maps, relics, and similar stuff.
Because tbh I'm getting annoyed by her weapons disappearing or not.
