I think the gardian of the galaxy game doesn't use the movies but the comics version apparently

The main problem is this that the last 2 times they used the "tall acrobatic Lara" it killed the franchise the 2nd time and forced them to reboot it.(TR Underworld and Anniversary)

It also doesn't help classic Lara that reboot TR games are far more successful than TR 1-9.(Just by looking at steam global sales you can see that Rise Of TR is always the most successful TR game whenever TR games go on a discount.)

how is Lara's portrayal the cause of those games tanking tho..? Anniversary was rushed and underworld was a buggy mess. Lara's character wasn't the issue, it's the poorly made games. They need to figure out how to make the gameplay appealing to a bigger audience while also not straying too far from what TR is.

Poor Lara isn't responsible for CD making mediocer games lol

Sora was saying they look like porn parody (wich can be said for Avengers) so I was answering to her (but I didn't found her quote)

Lmao. Chan always complains ,says nonsense and acts like he can make better TR game than CD and SE. I've gotten used to it.

Doesn't change this fact that Reboot Lara games are far more successful than older ones.
And this fact that majority of TR fans want action focus TR games rather than exploration focus ones.(So, reboot Lara is a better fit for the action focus TR games compared to classic.)

Edit: also, I didn't say it was Classic Lara's fault that Underworld and Anniversary failed. But obviously CD and SE think it is.
Because they simply decided to change Lara in TR 2013 instead of making her the same character that she was.(They probably found original Lara to be a boring Mary Sue. IDK)

Wow they managed to port Guardian of the Galaxy on Switch !

... Does that mean they can do it with Tomb Raider games.

I know Rihana called her "Teflon-coated".

Also talked about "wanting gameplay mechanics to feedback into the character", which I find hilariously ironic.

Personally, if you want an action title, there's dozens of them out there, if you want a classic TR-exploration game, there really isn't any other games like that right now.

There's a thread in the videogame section devoted to Guardian Of The Galaxy, so there's probably information on that game in the thread. I won't be posting in the thread myself as I know nothing about the game.
