The Tomb Raider reboot brought Lara back in style, Rise of the Tomb Raider gave us a beautiful jungle and many tombs to “raid”. Shadow of the Tomb Raider takes Lara’s journey farther by dropping you into the wildlands of central America.
"The latest GOTY contender!" Yeah, about that...
What about that?
It's not and won't be in contention that's that
It's not even game of the month, let alone game of the year.
Nowhere near goty material period
Really you played it? How was it?
I hope it's better than those 3 games from Microsoft's studios: Sea of Thieves (metascore 69), State of Decay 2 (metascore 68) and We Happy Few (metascore 64).
Chief Not better than God of war Not better than Spiderman Won't better than RDR2 Won't sell better than any of them either Will be overshadowed by other games just like rise was
Any time people think their opinions are facts and try to force them down other people's throats you know you're dealing with an irrational fanatic. When it comes to taste in videogames we all have our own. The game you think is GOTY will not be GOTY to everyone. It might not even be a good game to some people. Shadow of the Tomb Raider has received 9s and 10s from some reviewers. How are you going to claim it can't be a GOTY contender for people that like the game that much?
GOW will win more GOTY awards than Tomb Raider, Spider-Man will win more GOTY awards than Tomb Raider, RDR2 will win more GOTY awards than Tomb Raider,....
Sure you're free to like any game you want but you have to be objective about it yourself. Just because I love something doesn't mean I think it's the best thing ever. I loved Blade Runner 2049 and think it's one of the best, if not the best, sci-fi movies of the last 20 years but I wasn't under any illusion that it would win an Oscar for any category outside of the technical awards.
Yeah about that..don't bet on it.
I’m playing this game right now. I will rate it as 8/10. The controls are clunky. The kill animations are awkward. The graphics are meh. The game does not give pointers on puzzles. Sometimes its hard to find the correct ledge to jump and the death animations are gross. In a sense, this game is just a continuation of the ROTR. This game has QTE’s. I died a lot of times during the jaguar boss fight because of a bug where I can’t target the jaguar with the bow, it will not aim on the animal and aiming is slow. Among the Tomb Raider games, the TR 2013 is the best.
If anyone thinks a game with an 82 metacritic score and labeled the weakest in its series, is going to win GOTY... Then they're out of their minds. I bet it's a great game but let's be realistic.
