For me it's Tomb Raider angel of darkness ending. If i had to spell epic it would be angel of darkness. So sad now they couldn't finish the story! :(

Legend for me -- I actually liked the over-the-top drama and the cliffhanger.

While i dont think it had the best story, i think that TRL had the best ending. i really loved the dramtic scene with Lara and Mandy. it made me crave to know what happens next. it was really good :)

I like most endings. TRII was funny but short īSeen enough?ī, lol. Always makes me smile.
I like the Chronicles ending as well, itīs cool and leaves you with many questions.

I think Tomb Raider Underworld has the best ending. It was nice to see how they got out and ended up in Nepal, and how Lara had to trust Amanda. And of course how Natla got the mighty hammah smashed in her face, hehe. :D
But the true ending of TRU is the ending of Laraīs Shadow, that was epic. :cln:

TR3's is pretty great. Shows how it isn't over until it is over. Even after defeating Williard there are still baddies to gun down! :ton:

Also, reading the manual for Lost Artifact shows that even after the helicopter parts there is still more that happens. It is all pretty awesome.

Tomb raider legend, 4, and underworld(sidegames included). The rest just seem blah to me.

You can't really compare the classics ending to the trilogy's ending, seeing as how the classics were all stand alone and didn't follow on with each other, well except for TLR and AOD, but that's beside the point. The trilogy's all connected and it was all one story, so the ending of Underworld was the real ending for all 3 games that CD gave us..

I myself would have to say that The Last Revelation had the best ending. It was a major cliff hanger because you didn't know if Lara was actually dead or not. You seen her die, but you kept thinking, surely she is not dead.. they couldn't kill her. :D

I really love legends ending, it was a very interesting cliffhanger :)

AOD ending all the way :D

I was really happy when AOD ended.

Having just rewatched them all, AOD is my fave ending I think. People always complain about what a ***** Lara supposedly was during AOD, but what they fail to remember is that by the end of the game, Lara is healed. Her bitterness and anger is gone and she's herself again, which makes it a great ending imo; her character really evolves.

I always liked TR2's as well. Short, sweet, and cheeky :p

The Last Revelation... I was thinking to myself, 'Now we get to take the long way home'. :D I didn't want that game to ever end. :(

I also read on youtube a comment that made me smile. He thought that lara leaving the room and going into the darkness kinda shows like a new ferwell meaning for core. This was truly the end of core's lara croft and the start of something new. :hug:

1.TR1. The bloody hands just made me smile. And the TRA ending kind of ruined it for me.

2.Chronicles Ending also had a cool cliffhanger

3.Legend. It just had so much drama. And she really deserved a whacking across the face. Made me feel good :).

Each ending is pretty nice and special in it's own way.
However, my favourite ending is the Legend one.
The whole drama and seeing Lara almost losing control was great!
Plus I simply adore the voice acting in that scene. :cln:

AOD :D
Ii was like lara thanking Core for all the hard work they did over the years as they knew this would be their last game, kind of thankful but sad in the same way

So yes, AoD for me.

TR4 absolutely :D

Watching them now, again I must say, Underworld is the best in terms of performance and Amanda's interpretation is spectacula:)r, and all the great and the music.
And the final phrase is nod bad after all. Tells us much about the character of Lara and her determination to finish what she begun. On hers strength as a person.

The other endings are quite similar. imo
Except that touch of intrigue upon her death in TR4. Others have interesting things like the mystery of having something, she and her rivals. But no more news.

Also I am with those who think the best best is TR2. :p:D

I like raucous and fun.:o
It makes you feel satisfied with an: "aaaaaaah? Maybeeee???"
But she is exhaustive!!:confused::(:p:D

Perhaps a mixture Underworld-TR2, would be my favorite. :)

I don't think many of the TR endings were anything spectacular tbh. But Legend's was pretty good.

Legend has the best ending. I mean, I had goosepimples after watching that- and I was gagging for the next game already. That's how you do good endings/cliff hangers. Was superb.

StarCroft:AOD
03-11-10, 13:54
Definitely AOD... since it's unfinished, and it left a huge plot hole permanently, it really makes you think your very own ending

Looking at them all tr3 really has the most action packed ending! I just love it too much :D

Lara Croft!
06-11-10, 17:22
I liked the Chronicles ending, cause at that time, I didn't know if Lara was alive.
AOD was very nice as well, but it made me expect of a continuation that never came. Kurtis, were are you???

06-11-10, 17:25
For me it was TR4 because of that cliffhanger as well as TR5.

TR4...

Wow.

Both TR4 and TRL had really nice cliffhangers. I also like the ending to TRU, but it loses a point for not letting me through the hammer at Natla.

TR4 and AoD had the best ending. :)

Legend and AOD. Both were so cool! And the cliffhangers were so dramatic! :eek:

TR2 comes close. "Don't you think you've seen enough?" BAM!

The AOD Ending & TR2 ending is the best endings for me =).

From best to worst:

1) The TR2 ending is my favorite because it's funny and I like the edge it gives Lara.

2) Next I'd say Lara's Shadow because that's just freaking awesome :jmp: If the DLC doesn't count, then just put regular TRU here instead.

3) Then I'd put AOD's ending because it was nice. There were still important unanswered questions which I don't really like in general, but the ending did a good job of providing closure anyway because it implies answers to those questions and everything is relatively wrapped up. (Even if there's going to be a continuation of the story, I think it's better for each piece to feel as self-contained as possible)

3.5) Guardian of Light would go here if it counts. It was a cute way to end the game.

4) Then I guess TR1's ending because it has an explosion.

5) Then TRA because it has an explosion as well, but it loses a place for tying into the neophyte Lara drama with the blood-on-her-hands reference.



The rest I didn't really like for one reason or another.

6) TR5 was a cliffhanger, which I hate in general, but at least it ended on a semi-positive note.

7) TR3 had Lara out of character because she didn't seem that vicious and bloodthirsty in the previous games.

8) TR4 was an awful way to end a game.

9) And Legend's ending I absolutely hate because of how it portrays Lara, ends on a cliffhanger, and abuses Amanda (who I liked more than Legend Lara by the end of the game, so it really angered me to see Lara treat her like that).

The music in the end of TRA is a little much. It almost sounds like they're going for something like Carmina Burana (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qjvqY-U9gV0).

^ i really though that the anniversary ending was better than the 1st games ending even if a better game i like how anniversary showed lara's human nature but not let it interfere with her raiding abilities!

Legend - I love the time twist and Lara's attitude at the end.
