the best thing about writing soft reboots is that you don't need to call them what they are.
You just need to ignore whatever happened before and say "that plotline's over".

I can totally picture them doing something this stupid I mean they came up with the Rise/Shadow 'plot' (this post has more of a plot than the ****ing games do)... So it doesn't get any dumber than that.

Really they should remove the whole family drama storyline in future TR games.

Wolfenstein 2 the new Colossus also had the same curse. (BJ was an uninteresting depressed man there)

I played Wolfenstein 2009 recently and that game had far better storyline than TNC.(Alongside having a far more enjoyable gameplay I might add)

A week ago there was a poll about "which era is your favourite ?"
Last time I checked it was Reboot first and Classics and LAU tied at the second place. Maybe not the same community.

It's not just the family drama.

It's the cliches, the deus ex-machina, and the dumb villains making dumb decisions such as not killing the protagonist just because reasons.

As if that was only just the reboot trilogy.

Probably not then

One could try to talk about TR:AE and see how they respond. Just to be sure (?)

TR : AE isn't a good topic imo. Since video game communities always mock the games that are in unfinished states.(I remember the early footage of Tekken 7 gained lots of "the graphics suck" complaints even though that developers already stated that the graphics weren't finished.)

As whole that is the main reason why game publishers never show their games when their games haven't still reached alpha build.

I hate haaaate how this "become the tomb raider" thing caught on. Become a Tomb Raider? I am a Tomb Raider? Did this evolve from Crystals obsession with Batman? "Be the Batman"
Become the Tomb Raider but not really. By the end of the next game some of you will still be saying she's still in her early days of Tomb Raiding

Oh I can definitely see people defending perhaps the lack of confidence, gear, attitude, style etc... on the next game being her "first real adventure" after "becoming the Tomb Raider". So she isn't quite there yet, so criticisms can be excused. No the next game needs to be full on Lara Croft in her true form. None of this mucking about, wasting time trying to be a relatable normal girl, it's old now. There is no excuse for not having the pistols, backpack, braid etc... in the next game. None at all.
