I noticed whenever I watch a walkthrough of Rise or Shadow on YT, players almost always choose the tribal/armored outfits. a small part of me dies.

The thing that bothers me most with walkthroughs of Shadow is that folks almost always avoid hard exploration difficulty. Those white ledges hurt my eyeballs.

I KNOWWWW!!! the other day a youtube channel that does amazing TR reviews (the game statistics) was doing a stream of him playing Shadow for research for the review and he had the white paint on. so I commented that I won't accept or watch his review if he didn't turn that white paint off.

also the over spamming of survival instinct..they would just enter a room and immediately use survival instinct to know what to do. It's truly tragic.

To be honest, I don't even think it's a preference thing - people just think these outfits are cool and unusual additions, meanwhile, many fans are still hung-up on various aspects of Lara's appearance which they think are lacking, so to them, it's a much bigger deal.

Like, I know for me if it wasn't so important for Lara to look as much like herself as she can - the Sacra Umbra outfit in Rise is awesome, I'd wear it everywhere.

One would think, that with all these options the game would actually be challenging puzzle-wise on higher difficulties. (Not counting Deadly obsession here, since to me this mode is mainly frustrating and not challenging).

wow just wow

Shadow is such a great game once you rush the entire story and do the side missions and quests after Lara saves the world. This is almost as good as AOD. I cannot believe it!

You literally have to mess up the games story and the timeline of the events to find enjoyment in it

Ι think they mean how Rourke and Amaru are still alive in some of the DLC.

But I don't think that contradicts the story because the game specifically tells you that you are returned to the point just before the final battle with Amaru so both of them are still alive at that point. (I've only played the first four DLC at the time of posting this so I don't know about the rest yet)
