-Critics critique video games based on the wrong criteria most of the time. like story and character development.
-Tomb Raider is not a loved series by the gamers and gaming press.
-Misogyny
-Homophobia, most of TR fanbase are gay men, and gaming press are all straight nerds.
-The fanbase is divided and entitled and do not defend the game in the gaming scene.
-SOTTR was ahead of its time.

Here we go with the mysoginy BS, seriously drop the act. Shadow was the worst based on its own merits. The story was weak, had no connection to the previous games, they removed what people liked and did not expand enough on the new mechanics to give something for people to do. The hubs were boring and not interesting at all, especially Paititi slowed the game down to a crawl.

None of that has anything close to mysoginy. Get over it

considering uncharted had the same story for the first three games.
and kingdom hearts released a sequel after 15 years with the same mechanics. and all these games are praised to the moon and back.
then you pretty much have to deal with the fact that it's misogyny. and strive to fight it rather than fight to refute it since your..no OUR favorite gaming heroin is at stake here.

Uncharted had a consistent story where as Lara did not. Heck Shadow wasn't even about Lara and all about Paititi which no one liked. It's really bizarre how you try to shove mysoginy into everything.

you can keep saying this until J Lo can sing but The truth of the matter is that if Paititi was in uncharted it would be hailed as technical achievement that redefined the social aspect experience in video gaming.

I agree. I'm pretty sure SOTTR will be hailed as one of the most underrated gaming gems in due time. It will stand the test of time. They created a classic.

No Suli it wouldn't, because it was something that had been done before and it was something that added nothing, but got in the way of actual development and progress, things that players value the most.
