Tomb Raider Discussion
They only did that because all the butthurt feminists complained that Lara was sexier than themselves. Now they've ruined her to appease those feminazi's who hate men and male sexuality.
This game series won't last under this version of Lara if the gameplay stays the same. The sex appeal of Lara was what put Tomb Raider on the map. Now that they've destroyed that icon with this non-Lara imposter, future sales will be low if the linear gameplay stays the same. Sales might be high for this title because people bought into the hype that this was a survival based game. But it really isn't. There is no survival gaming here at all. It's just a story. You kill one animal at the beginning of the game and that's all you have to do to progress the story. After that, you don't have to kill anymore animals to survive. You don't have to find clean water to drink. Or bandages for your wounds.
It's just a story driven game that requires you to press some buttons from time to time to progress down very linear corridors.

Yeah, I read that. But if they can change the image of Lara then they can certainly change the gameplay as well. In 2013, I expect more from game developers than the same old linear garbage they've been putting out for the past decade. You can put lipstick on a pig - it's still a pig.
And now they're even pushing gender politics into gaming which is dumb as all can be when over 95% of your industry depends on sales from male gamers. I see enough insecure feminists whining about being women in the news, I don't want to see it in gaming as well.
I get it, you don't like the new Lara. That is fine but there are plenty of people like me that do like the new Lara Croft and that she actually has depth and character development.
I don't really care if the game is linear. I like the exploring aspects and finding the relics, documents, and GPS caches. The Uncharted series is pretty linear and that series has sold like hotcakes. What exactly is wrong with a story driven game? If the story is good I don't care how linear it is. I will still play it and enjoy it.
It could be because he has different preferences on what he likes and dislikes like every human does. For the record, I like Tomb Raider more than Far Cry 3 too. Sure, Far Cry 3 was fun but it severely lacked in the storytelling department.
95%? I am fairly sure that women make up a far larger percentage of gamers than 5%. Not every male that plays video games wants the female characters in those games to be sex symbols.
I am a male and I am sick of seeing female characters get used as sex symbols just to appeal to the male demographic. Alyx Vance from Half-Life 2 was a big step in the right direction for female characters and now Lara Croft has also gone in the right direction as well. Every character both male and female needs to have depth and character development.
if you hate the new tombraider so much why don't you just uninstall it and forget you own it and stop complain over it already.. sheeesh...
but the story doesn't call for much free roam.
