Someone tweeted me this. He's actually credited as cinematic director, so not a minor role at all. I'm actually speechless that he was involved. I had no idea.

I must say, it's nice that someone has been close to the franchise since the beginning. Although I'm pretty indifferent towards Toby. What's the fandom's opinion on him?

If Toby is to be thanked for Legend Lara's catchy dialogue, then he could stay involved as long as he wants If not, and not knowing exactly what he does and how powerful his direction is...I can't say.

Oh. That's important ?

I'm sorry I don't know my gaming dev positions that well.

I thought that since he wasn't as involved as he seemed to be in Legend and Anniversary this was like a downgrade or something.

I think he was also cinematic director for Underworld too?

I think it's impressive that he's been present for all eras of the franchise but I kinda get a negative vibe about him.

I'm grateful for creating Lara and all, obviously, and for all his work in the franchise over the years but idk. I kinda don't care if he's present or not.

I think the cinematics in both Underworld and Tomb Raider were pretty good so I think he's good as far as that is concerned. As for Legend I think he just redesigned Lara and that was kinda it? Not sure.

Crystal were originally actually planning to continue from were Core left and were in direct communication with them about what to do next but then Toby came in and sort of erased the whole thing

Kinda petty but also kinda iconic tbh. And I love Legend so I guess I have to thank him for that too.

He definitely wasnt the main cinematic director if that's the case. Cory Barlog was.

If he was the one that told CD to scrap that hot garbage and make TR2013 instead, I will forever be grateful to him.

They're both credited under Cinematic Directors. I don't really know who did most of the work but they're credited the same way in the game at least. And Earl said Toby was present when actors were auditioning. He was very much involved in the making of the game, surprisingly. I wonder if he chose Camila for Lara, as well as Earl.

I want a TR level with an artifact that can pause and change time... but like, you have to place it in a hole in the environment, and then go back and change things... like... a puzzle involving time-travel. <3 <3 <3
