Tomb raider legend is called the seventh game, but when I look at the main forum page, there are 7 games before it, so why is it not the 8th?

"The Lost Artifact" was not a game, it was just an expansion.

There was something i always wondered about, and that was why does The Lose Artifact get its own little section, but The Golden Mask and Unfinished Business doesnt?

Because The Lost Artifact was released as a stand-alone game and you don't need the TR3 CD in order to run it. It is not a Gold edition of TR3 like Unfinished Business (1) and Golden Mask (2). When we had the old software (Infopop), the forum descriptions of TR1 and TR2 included the Gold editions too. So, since EIDOS released it as a stand-alone game, it became more popular than the two Gold editions and it was given a separate forum.

However, it is considered as a TR3 Expansion (first by EIDOS and therefore by the fans), since it was built using the same engine. So, it hasn't got a "number".
