I remember the main reason that Dante from DMC games has dual pistols was because the developers behind it copied this idea from Tomb Raider.

Now, it's sad that the current owners of TR ip want to replace Lara's pistols with a bow.(Which I think was copied from that Hunger Games main character which had a bow)

The bow made sense in the context of the 2013 game.
But yes, after that I definitely think the duals should’ve returned as the main weapon and the bow should’ve been an option for stealth.

No sane person would do the things Lara with a bow as their weapon of choice. It makes Lara look like a complete moron.

All of the classic outfits they have are based on the “Core Design” era of games. TR2, TR3, heck, even Angel of Darkness is referenced.

How many outfits did they make that reference their LAU trilogy? None.
LAU hadnt really made any major impact. Those PS4 exclusive outfits were to make up for the backlash from the xbone deal

Outfiits don't matter if I don't enjoy the gameplay.

^I agree but, to be fair, this topic is about Lara. But to be fair the topic wanders everywhere randomly.

I personally assosiate the gameplay with the respective Lara.

I think Shadow has a lot of options to make it closer to the classics than any of the other two reboot games.

The option to turn off the tutorials, white paint, underwater exploration, piranhas as well as turning off the Focus vision or whatever it’s called. Whether you enjoyed it or not is obviously subjective but it’s clear that they were trying to bring back the gameplay loop of the classic games.

I wanna get drunk. I'll take the Smirnoff Ice.
SE, not to go on a total political tangent but if she were Jewish, communist and anti fascist that would be kind of a three-way internal contradiction: communism and fascism are two branches of precisely the same philosophical tree (collectivism,) and typically both communism and fascism are virulently anti-Semitic.

For the record, I despise all things collectivist and love all things Jewish, if that helps.

But my comments relate to the stark difference between the original LC's appearance and personality vs. the LC of the present-day production crew - which difference, I maintain, is clearly motivated by external politics, something irrelevant that's been allowed to intrude into the TR production to negative effect. Politics are the causal factor, but the issue here is not that erroneous belief set itself, but what its intrusion has done to the LC character.
