Default How do you beleive that this divided community could heal?

Given all that has transpired through the years of this franchise in what way or ways do you think this community could heal from the massive divide between it. Is there something the publishers or developers could do? Is there something that fans could do or is there anything anyone could do? We've been through more then enough revisions and reboots to where everyone is really up in arms about several things. Is it possible at all to heal this community to a point where we aren't as divided as we have been this past era of Tomb Raider?

And by bone I mean a nice LC game.

I don't really think its possible that much.

Nothing can really change how drastically different the Core Design Era and the Reboot Era are in terms of well, everything.

plus you have the various already controversial changes LAU made.

I guess make a series (maybe like how COD has two different developer teams.) that's actually like the Core Design Era in terms of game design but I'm not exactly expecting they'll do it.

it's funny you talk about community and the role of the companies because, well, companies tend to talk big about community here and community there, but then they just make games for the part of the world that doesn't give a damn about Tomb Raider anyway, so what's the point?

Pretty much the reason why I'm kinda not hopeful for the series at all at this point.

If a change of Developers AND publisher doesn't happen then I doubt the series will ever return to actually being an adventure game with a high focus on platforming again.

And this.

I guess that returning to the LC brand of games wouldn't hurt as well.

Literally just make a real Tomb Raider game.

Everyone will always (that's always as in always) disagree on things. There is diversity within these individual game universes, which means one prefers the story episode that is Rise while another prefers Treboot. Nobody is killing each other over that difference in opinion, in fact most of you like those disagreements. It's just mind-numbing and gross that there is a deep-seeded misunderstanding allowing the constant degradation of the originals. "They are technologically outdated" says that diversity of video game mechanics is wrong or impossible. It's this idea that there is one objective good thing, it's just annoying.

The subject-matter fans have like totally lost sight of the sole of TR whether they like it or not, and that is the mechanical identity of Tomb Raider. It's... like. Anyways.

edit: "soul"...

It's actually depressing, especially for Tomb Raider. That's why I'd rather them focus more on what the fans/community want rather than putting the general public first.

But then people say Tomb Raider is only successful because the general pubic buys it. Well don't have an extreme AAA budget so you can appeal more to the fans and still be successful.
