1996, I went to my local newsagent and saw a PC magazine where there was a brunette in green top and shorts on the demo cd-rom, that was the first time I saw Lara. When the TR1 demo was released I played it on my pc, which wasn´t powerful enough to run it fluently, so it wasn´t until I rented a PlayStation and a copy of TRII that I got my first real taste of TR (and I fell in love instantly).

When my friend got TR 1 for his birthday and we were round his house playing it.

And before my dad went to Australia we used to rent a game out every weekend, and we rented out TR 1 one weekend, and I kept on nagging him to get up to the last boss! Lol
After I saw my brother and cousin fighting the last boss.

You should get round to it soon.
TR 2 is such a classic.
My earliest memories of TR were from TR 1, 2, 3.
My cousin is a hardcore TR player, he defeated the giant mutant on TR 1 by jumping around with the uzis, and shooting like a maniac.
And my step Dad is a classic TR player as well.

Just about 2 years ago - my cousin gave me his TR3 cd to play with when I got my new PC. I immediately fell in love with the game, and made it my life's mission to hunt down all the games in the series. This quest just ended a few days ago, when I got hold of TR1, the last remaining game for my collection. :D

Do you go back to school tomorrow?
Our school's got an extra week off, stupid, but cool. :D

Anyways, on topic, I think most people either heard about TR when it first came out or just recently.

It was either late '97 or early '98. It was before I had a computer, I know that, and it was also before Tomb Raider III came out, because I remember anticipating it's release; I still have the demo disk for it somewhere! It says "WORLD FIRST: Tomb Raider III!" and has a picture of a woman dressed as Lara Croft on the CD sleeve. I loved that disk, cause it also introduced me to Populous: The Beginning. And I have strong memories playing NHL '99 on Saturday evenings, along with the jungle level of TR3.

But yeah, my first experience with TR was in late '97 or early '98, on my uncle's Playstation. The first time I played it, I got up to the first save crystal. Not bad for a n00b! :D

Even before we had a computer, I loved video games. Perhaps I would have discovered the game in 1996 if the Spice Girls hadn't been taking up my time.

Back in the good old days of '96. A game called Tomb Raider came out. I thought "ooooooh", then i bought it for PC with all the money i had saved up.

And now i've been struck by a wave of nostalgia.

1996 - I think I was 9 years old... I was very young.

EDIT: I got the first game just after it's release. I didn't know anything about it though, I just wanted it because of the pretty lady on the cover :p ...And my dad bought it to me. Since then I've loved it!

In 1997 and it was the demo of tomb raider 2 in a magazine called "pc team".in the beginning,it looked to me so strange as a game but by the time I start loving it and my love to it is growing by the time
I love you lara,rock on girl,you're simply the best:D
BTW,silent hill and tomb raider are the two games that my love to them won't stop growing,It's just like I can't live without thinking,there's a person called lara croft and a place called silent hill...
