True, true, true.....
Only add Underworld in there, but thatís hardly unpopular....

Shadowís current unpolished state along with its minor bugs and lackluster gameplay and story ruins it for me. Itís not the proper ending to what TR2013 started, the game of great polishness and storyline.

On PC Shadow has a tendency to crash at random times for some reason. This is especially annoying in a Deadly Obsession playthrough.

Curious as to why you think this.

LAU Lara is the best Lara.

For me she's basically a more mellowed out TR1 Lara and I wish she would come back.

I miss her too for the exact same reasons you just mentioned. I really can't see a big disconnect between her character and portrayal in LAU and the early TR games. Something I unfortunately can't say for the reboots.

• It had the most modest upgrading system of the Reboot games. Lara’s change of arsenal step by step was kinda similar to the Classics, where every weapon’s appearance changed with the games. There just wasn’t multiple kinds of the same weapons unnecessarily (looking at you, Rise and Shadow).
• No side-quests.
• No merchant system.
• No social hubs like Geothermal Valley or Paititi
• Lara actually being alone and accomplishing stuff by herself. No accompaniment of neither Jonah nor Jacob.
• While weak, the return of suspense and dread. At least in your first playthrough, you wondered “What would come through this corner?” This was drastically reduced in Rise and completely removed in peaceful walking sim Shadow.
• No pay-to-know-more-about-the-story DLC.
• Using the dual pistols, even though for mere seconds. ‘Nuff said.
• The happiness of Lara’s parents being missing and there finally being no family drama.
• Exploration in interesting locations (variety, at least). Not just blue, grey, white or green, brown, yellow...

These are all forgotten when you sprinkle in some swimming, sprinting, push-pull puzzles, Classic skins, Croft Manor, and piranhas in your next games...
No judging.... :P

LA Lara for me is the perfect Lara too. They’re one and the same for me (just younger-older).

Underworld Lara can burn in hell with her spoilt attitude and stuck-up expressions....

In Hellheim????

Underworld Lara is a badass, I love her. She had the spine to kill her own monstruous mother after years looking for her, despite how bad the plot was. And the way she left Amanda behind again????? When she got angry at Natla?? When she said she was going to kill a god? Icon, legend, diva, step on my face.
