Re: What are you playing right now?
I'm currently playing the new Tomb Raider. I've never played a Tomb Raider game before, but something about the trailers made this new one seem special. Lara's character seemed genuine and likable, and I was really excited to play through a game in which she slowly made the transition from an unsure girl to a total badass.
Unfortunately, that transition is pretty much complete by hour three. Lara spends the vast majority of the game as an action hero. That's not necessarily a bad thing as she actually makes a surprisingly great action hero, but the rushed character arc still feels like a missed opportunity.
Also, the body count is absurdly high for a game that spends so much effort on characterization.
