Default Narrative problems with Shadow

I saw this video and thought you guys should see it. It basically sums up every single thing I found so wrong with the story and how it's a complete mess and how the reboot trilogy just didn't work at all.

Also rants quite about about that stupid tag line "become the tomb raider".

"The tomb raider she's destined to be" joke

While I think that everyone is entitled to create threads for whatever they want to, personally I agree with you. This subforum is flooded with negative threads, which is also perfectly fine if that‘s what people feel like, but the unappreciation thread is made for stuff like this.

I really enjoyed that. He has a very attractive accent.

I thought to open a thread specifically about the story. I can see where this would fit in that other thread also.

I could go on all day about this game's narrative mishaps, especially that stupidly unearned "climactic" moment in the oil fields.

He doesn't say that much honestly for a video about more than 10min there's a lot of emptiness.

Anyway there's a lot to unpack from this trilogy and it's not like there's a clear sign of what this game is about (I'm talking about Shadow) it's opened to different interpretations from the players. Personnaly I have tried to connect the dots by myself but someone could have another explaination about why Lara is doing what she does like Late Raider for exemple.

Finally I'm not even surprised by who made this thread it's like beating a dead horse at this point... it's tiresome.
I get it you dont like Shadow, can we please move on ?

The guy has nicely elaborated how the game just doesn't feel right in the end regarding Lara's evolution into a Tomb Raider. Also, i really don't like how the games are set in single locations each. The classics had globetrotting which i really loved. The reboot needs to apply this too.

Just as much as others, me included, are allowed to express how much they enjoy Shadow and the Reboot in general, Charmed and others are entitled to express their points of critic. Sure, the relevancy of this specific thread is questionable since there‘s an existing thread to discuss topics like this but even that is up to Charmed to decide. If you don‘t agree with his point of few or are annoyed by him „beating a dead horse“ maybe you should just move on and ignore this thread and his other posts.

I really don‘t mean this in a rude or sassy manner, it‘s just the easiest solution in my opinion.
