If we're doing remasters or even remakes, I like the idea more of those segments being unlockable hidden mini campaigns for each of their respective games, where you unlock them by say finding all secrets in the main campaign or something. I like the idea of giving Lara new outfits for them though, instead of just recycling ones from the main campaigns.
I really like this idea. That would be one one the most rewarding bonus ever for finding all the secrets and would definitely stimulate the player to look for them.

Yeah I don't mind the disjointed non-chronological format of Chronicles either. I think it worked. I would only understand making them chronological if you're carrying over equipment between each one, as that would get Teen Lara's weaponless bit out the way first.

Yeah exactly. The thing about secrets in the originals is that, outside of extra ammo pick-ups in each individually, there wasn't really a reward for getting them all. It didn't matter if you missed some if you were a skilled player, and there weren't trophies back then.

TR3's secrets do already unlock All Hallows. In a TR3 remaster though, tbh I'd just refine that level and put it in the main campaign between Thames Wharf and Aldwych, then unlock Lost Artefact by finding all secrets instead.

I was happy with TR Chronicles and liked the separate stories all tied into the narrative of Lara's assumed death, and it was a good continuation from TR4, as we did not know if Lara Croft was dead by the tomb cave-in, and TRC continued with her friends believing her dead.

Even players were wondering would there be another TR game after this one

The only downside of Chronicles that players mention is the short levels, but all are very playable, and still have enjoyment playing them again and again.

As for a remake, well I just like it, as it is. Its a classic

Oh yes! they should add a homoerotic scene between them set in the fountains of Rome while they're at it.

Do they have a scene similar to when Lara/Kurtis hold each other up in AOD?

agreed. they need to kiss as well btw. oh and they should lose their shirts, possibly have a scene like when teen lara stops in the middle of undressing for bed (but not as creepy because it's two adult men instead of being a teenage girl)

It is just the whole fact Larson and Pierre had plot holes due to dying or at least Pierre did, Larson could have survived the serpents attack but the fact Pierre fell down a death pit and we heard his bones shatter, pretty much confirmed he died (unless he somehow crawled out of the past timeline back to the present) but it cannot be before or after TR1 as he is shot to death along with Larson on that game.

So it seems Larson and Pierre are just incredibly lucky with near death experiences but they attempted to attack Lara in TR1 which is pretty much a death wish in itself so it would have made sense to have two total new characters for Rome but TRC was rushed and unexpected.
