But...it was her shitty writing of Lara as a character that focused on the father/family issues in the first place

Rhianna wrote Lara to be a whiny, non assertive and just completely different to what people loved about her as a character in the originals and Legends.

I'd like to see a version where she has MORE daddy issues.

Maybe they could write a gentleman's club or two into the story and the plot could explore Lara's journey from exotic dancer to adventurous explorer. I mean right...right?! ;)

Makes sense. That explains the big boobs from the original games. You're on to something there

Maybe she is paying her way through archaeology school

Writing is about homing your identity and threading it through the story. It means that the ready is ready to move on and make Lara behave different.

It’s not bad news, it’s good news.

That’s…not what writing is about.

Seeing as how you wrote it, why are you complaining? 🤣

senorfartcushion800d ago

It is projection. It’s fine to criticise yourself as a writer. You have to.

If she’s ready to move on and make the character different then that’s ok isn’t it.

porkChop800d ago

She isn't complaining. You should probably read the article to understand what she's actually saying.

Never! The headline is all we need on this site.

Bring back the Lara Croft who was a badass woman.

CobraKai800d ago

I wouldn’t be opposed to tiddies and short shorts as well.

That's the one thing that definitely won't happen.
