No need to go around insulting people's taste my dude. Don't be such a huge butt.

While I understand that the CMs are trying their best, square and or Crystal aren’t really cooperating. They could easily give a small budget to port over the classic games very easily and it would be relatively cheap for them too. But no we are getting a cook book. Which wouldn’t be the problem if it wasn’t the only thing we’re getting. Same can be said about reloaded, its not that reloaded is bad or whatever (its definitely better that the relic run copy pasta) its that*its* the only thing that’s coming.

Like somebody else already said, everything about tomb raider seems really low effort, shadow was such a half assed reskinned rise. Which rise is a reskinned uncharted. Its just in the same loop assassins creed is.
They both come and go and make a quick buck (AC being more successful) and people play them and forget about them when the real games drop.
Thats why not a single CD TR game has ever even been in any GOTY category.

Tomb raider deserves better, and while back then i was a fan of the reboot, im slowly realising both square and crystal have no idea what to do with the franchise as so far they seem to wait to see whats popular only to be late on said trend by at least 5 years.

I mean, that was coming from the guy who’s obsessed with Angelina Jolie. I think we can disregard any statements he makes about people’s bland tastes

Honestly, I'm so sick of fans like you thinking you're above everyone else in the sense that you find no negatives in what's happened so far. If you're excited then that's great - I'm genuinely happy for you. But this is a forum where we are allowed to express our opinions on TR content and if that opinion does not match with yours the correct response is not "you always complain I hate it here".

That's the beauty of a forum. You can choose who to respond to and what conversations you involve yourself in via the quote system... And yet...

i actually think it's unfair to paint Shadow in that way. EM really tried to improve the tomb raider aspects of the game way more than Crystal did in their two games. We don't know if they would have tried in Shadow but I suspect not. The negatives of shadow were things left over from earlier games.

Definitely the majority of issues were there in the first place because of tr2013 and rise so im aware that EM couldn’t do much. But it still doesn’t change that if you remove the snow from rise and add a forest its really difficult to tell the games apart as they play exactly the same. Down to the same action packed scenes in the same exact way.

Not you preaching after literally calling 'these people' 'crazy' a couple of pages ago I stand by what I said and all a select group of people are doing are proving my point.

Also my original post started as a JOKE to another user who made a similar comment that I agreed with. It wasn't that deep, it was an observation. I don't think I'm better than anyone, for starters. I have never said that finding no negatives makes me better in any way. I, like some others, are SICK and TIRED of seeing the same reskinned arguments about why the newer games and Anniversary are bad and why newer fans are evil and aren't fans, especially when there are answers to the complaints already out there for people to see. The only thing up in the air are ports, and even they've been talked about at some point. If you can't accept what answers and information we got, then that's not my problem.

Shadow similarities to Rise are greatly outweighed by the improvements it brought to the trilogy.

This is the part that I don't understand.
Every other studio is releasing rematers, remakes, ports etc for anything under the sun... but not TR.

Also, still no TR games on the switch like , what's going on here?
