I guess because I dislike cinematic driven games and there is maybe much more classic gameplay that I missed than classic Lara.
Well I can like Rise and Shadow, they are alright but I expected more again.

This.

I am really happy with the gameplay now Shadow expanded on the puzzles. I still don't like how they are handling Lara at all so I would definitely say it is my biggest issue with the games. If Shadow had used a classic or LAU Lara personality, style etc then I would have rate Shadow one of my top games of the decade. Instead it ends up in my good but not outstanding pile.

TR was about gameplay, and a perfect balance of Lara's characterization.

With Crystal D, they shifted it more towards her characterization and trying to hard....but end up falling flat.

Not really. It was a nice shift. But the writers and their leads are to blame...

Yes, could not have said it better.

I hope it is not going to continue, I had hope for Rise before it's release but when that scruffy haired protagonist displayed the same antics from TR2013 I gave up.
Shadow was worse, they need to Reboot again and base everything off Classic Lara.

Also TR2013, Rise and Shadow have horrible gameplay.

Very true, Tomb Raider classic was like Super Mario 64. It was all about platforming and maneuvering environment while solving environmental tasks to make progress. Enemies were there to distract the player while they were trying to complete the level.

New Tomb Raider lacks platforming and instead is basically a third person action adventure.

I wish they would add platforming back into the formula and when I say platforming I mean having to calculate distance and have platforms moving or some being deadly.

I don't think the reboot series will continue longer than the trilogy that we currently have. I believe they'll more than likely to decide on re-rebooting the series into the next period that we'll move forward into the future.
