I don't wanna start a huge debate here, but I really hate the new Lara: she's whiny, she's afraid, she's not the adventurous type and she looks like a Hunger Games knockoff except more violent. The old Lara could easily have been shipwrecked on an island, fighting for survival, looking for her friends, scavenging through ruins, fighting off bad guys... but all without the whining. Yes, she could be horrified to see someone being killed and mutilated (she's not "immune" to that); yes, she could use a bow to kill animals (if she had lost her pistols); yes, she could kill, or better knock down bad guys (without being that violent and bloody); yes, she could scream in agony and pain when hurt (she's still human). But for the love of God, she would at least try to keep it together with logic and quips. She wouldn't say "sorry" to an animal she killed for food and say something like "I hate tombs".
Anyway, end of my rant, love your work, keep it up ^_^
Go easy on the girl. That's why it's called a reboot after all. Plus the old Lara is in her 30s and 40s. It took her a while to become the woman we all know and love. The new Lara is a 21 year old rich girl who's still in college and gets tossed into this psychotic situation where half the people she knows are dead. Not to mention her nutball professor losing his mind trying to keep his tv show. She is put through a lot in a very short time. And again it's a reboot. The old Lara waved bye bye to us. All we have left.of her are people.like Shermie. She's in video game heaven and left behind what I believe is a very likable character, who at the end of her game is definitely on the path to awesomeness.
Hahahaha! I agree with a looot of points! But I still like the new Lara. Hahaha! The old one is the Best EVER, she can't be replaced... NEVER.Of course... But I don't hate the new one. After the new "Dante", I think I can overcome everything. 8D
