Some things are better to read without a brain, just saying.

I'd add also a supernatural one like Excalibur or Thor's hammer that's helpful both in combat and puzzles.

I personally didn't like those weapons since they were too OP and you just had to mash the attack button.

I agree. It's a good thing we only got to use it for the very end of the game. Although it was kinda tricky to wield properly.
The swinging animations were kinda slow, locking Lara in a direction and making her an easy target for the energy creature.

My position is in an ideal place we as fans should not be influencing decisions by game designers. But on the other hand those responsible for transforming Lara into something completely different, the ones who make out aspects of classic Lara as ridiculous, those people really need to change or take a hike.

Signed.

...but to specify, to me, neither dual pistols nor a braid are essential.
I saw the word "confident (-Lara)" on a lot of posts, and that`s what I hope they will bring back.

Confident. Choosing to go on adventure because she wants to, not because she unwillingly stumbles into saving the world and solving daddy issues simultanously.
Snarky, sexy, kicking ass. And more of a lone wolf who doesn`t bring the whole school class to the party.

I was so sure the point of the trilogy would be to show how she turned into the badass we knew, like a origin story. But somehow she stayed the same insecure teenager throughout. It would actually feel almost rediculous if the next game would still paint her like that.

One point worth thinking about in that context is visual realism.
Classic Lara was basicly a comic heroine, which doesn`t really fit with the realistic style of the recent trilogy. I enjoy life-like graphics like the next guy, but imo it would be worth considering moving to something a bit more stylized.
That might also benefit the environments, which never managed to capture the grandness of the early low-poly games.
Well, just a thought.

I agree, it really looks like it.
