I also like WET, I've got a little story related to the game.

I have deceided to buy it with my father,he was driving me (I was at middle school at the time). So we arrived at the shop and checked out for the game and when we have returned to the car a little surprise was on it, my father received a penalty for unauthorised parking at the front of the school gate oops.

I love exoticism and supernatural.

Bears and jaguars were fun in reboot. Dare I say much more than human enemies.

Jun 9 '19 - "Who's played Tomb Raider II recently?"

I haven’t played the classics, bar TR1, in a few years. I should get on that.

Jun 12 '19 - "Do you think one of Lara's hobbies is gun collecting?"

My headcanon for classic Lara is that she likes restoring/renovating houses, based on her inability to stick to one layout for the mansion. I don’t think she’s that keen on firearms.

Jun 14 '19 - "What's everyone's favorite level of the classics?"

TR1: The Lost Valley, Colosseum, The Cistern.
TR2: The Great Wall, Temple of Xian, Floating Islands.
TR3: Temple Ruins, Nevada Desert, Crash Site.
TR4: Cairo and the one where you scale the pyramids.
TR5: The Sinking Submarine.
AoD: Oddly, the Parisian Ghetto.

Jun 17 '19 - "Favorite of Lara's outfits?"

Think I’ve already answered this one: the blue Casual Explorer from Underworld.

Jul 2 '19 - "What sort of locales does everyone like most in Tomb Raider?"

Asian. Japan, China, Thailand - the ruins tend to have a more dignified, spiritual appearance that I find so atmospheric.

Jul 5 '19 - "What's your favorite weapon of the series, not counting the classic Dual Pistols?"

Mjolnir.

Jul 7 '19 - "Favorite villain in the franchise?"

Natla, Amanda and the Doppelgänger in Underworld. I liked those three.

Jul 10 '19 - "What's your most replayed Tomb Raider game?"

It’s between TR2013 and Anniversary. Rise is getting there with all of its DLC.

Jun 11 '19 - "What's your most memorable moment of the series?"

Might be the entirety of Underworld, starting with its initial reveal with the Southern Mexico stuff. It was dripping with atmosphere, and I’m in the minority that wasn’t disappointed when I played it myself - I loved it.

Jun 13 '19 - "Do you feel that the Save Crystals of Tomb Raider I and III enriched the games, or made them needlessly difficult--and why?"

I don’t really mind it in TR1, but I’ve only ever played TR3 with the PS1 save crystals and those can **** off. TR3 is pretty obtuse and bordering on unfair anyway, but with that save system it’s just made worse.

Jun 15 '19 - "Do you feel like Underworld was a proper conclusion to Legend and Anniversary--and why?"

I definitely answered this.

Jun 16 '19 - "Do you feel that the platforming and climbing systems of the Survivor Trilogy were adequate for Tomb Raider--and why?"

I did like the parkour feeling to stringing different moves together while traversing, though more of an acrobatic flair and moveset would go a long way.

Jun 17 '19 - (From Melonie Mac) "Favorite cutscene in Tomb Raider history?"

Lara throwing a colossal strop on Natla with Thor’s Hammah.

Jun 22 '19 - "When did you first play Tomb Raider: Anniversary?"

Release day.

What's your favorite non-boss enemy?

Tigers and Naga.

Actually, fun fact: Lara was banned by some sort of gunplay club (I don't remember the actual name) in school for showing "too keen of an interest", according to officially released details around the time of TR1.

Nonetheless, I don't think she would have collected firearms as a hobby.

No way? I guess that’s in-character; she is depicted with guns a lot in renders with a huge grin on her face. You can’t take her anywhere.

I don't think her hobbies would be too different to what we see her doing. Outdoorsy stuff, maybe not quite as extreme all the time.

Martial arts as well.

I don't really have a favourite non-boss enemy. I just don't like spiders so they're the worst.

According to her original bio, Lara's hobbies include "Any challenging sports. [...] extreme forms of transport." and my absolute favourite "Has also once admitted to stitching a kind of Bayeaux tapestry of her own adventures while at home". It's so bizarre, I just can't imagine Lara sitting at Croft Manor stitching a tapestry!

She probably intended to put it in her tomb.

We all know she plans to have a deathtrap tomb with all her artefacts in it when she bites it.
