With blow-by-blow commentary from my wife

Our friends over at IGN just posted a video comparing Tomb Raider to Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition, along with an interview with with developer Scot Amos. It's a nice interview, but it's a lot of preaching to the choir. 

I was curious about what someone who has no vested interest in being at the forefront of the technological innovation may think of the improvements in Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition --someone who can tell the difference between DVD and VHS picture quality, but who isn't going to necessarily value something more just because it has "more graphics per inch". So I asked my wife to give me some commentary on the differences she perceived between the two versions. See her type-written comments below.

00:20- "It looks like they instagram-ed it"

00:52- "It's a little darker"

01:03- "Her hair moved a little more"

01:11- "It's more shadow-y"

01:31- "The hair is more piece-y, more flow-y. That's pretty cool I guess. It's like when they got that special paint to make Belle's hair go just right, with just the right amount of wispiness, in the cartoon movie Beauty and the Beast."

Me- "What? What are you talking about?"

Her- "They made a really big deal out of it in that movie."

01:56- "I mean, they both look pretty fake."

02:11 Me- "Do you prefer one over the other?"

Her- "No, I mean, her face is more fleshy colored on the right. More living colored, but that's not necessarily better."

02:27- "Oh, she's slouching! She's slouching more in the PS4 one for some reason."

02:35- "She tripped! (giggles)"

2:45- (losing interest, watching The Wrestler on TV, a scene where Mickey Rourke's character is shopping for cheap clothes.)

Me- "How about now? Big difference, little difference, no difference?"

Her- "Uhhhh, a little different? The colors are a little brighter."

03:13- "She's all wet! Was she wet before?"

03:29- "The angle is different?"

3:54 Me- "Anything?"

Her- "... no."

04:02- "Uh, the rocks are a little more defined?"
