Question Starting Out --Recommendations?

Hello all!

So I just picked up Rise on PS4 and my 9 year old asked me if she could play it. Of course the answer is no as the reboot is far more violent and gory than the previous games. The previous games though are open to her.

So that leaves the question... where to start her off at. Either way, she is going to start with the first but which version? TR1 on PS1 is a classic and will get her familiar with the often thought of as bad controls so she can play TR2 and TR3 eventually without issue. If I start her on TR Anniversary (PS2) everything is improved but it will be more difficult for her to go back to TR2 and 3 controls to play those.

Should I start her on the PS1 and if she doesn't like the controls move her to Anniversary?

I've moved this to gen chat as I feel it's better here as it's not game specific.


I would go with TR1. May as well start at the beginning .

I'd say Legend. It's one of the easier TRs, so I think that one's alright to start out with. Though TR1 is a good one to start too.

I'd say legend. It's very beginner friendly.
Then LAU.

Of course, that might make the transition backwards to the classics a lot harder, so...

I agree with this advice strongly.

Legend definitely. Watching on youtube is harder than actually playing it. Your little girl should have lots of fun with this one. After that she can try LAU, then TRAOD and TR5 and after that TR1-4 as they are the hardest.

TR1 or TR2 Definitely - This is compulsory okay TR1 is more Tombs and TR2 is more of Core's unique exotic environments.

If you introduce her to it, and she likes it, controls might not be a problem, let her be the judge of that. She could make her way up to TRA which will be beautiful

I'd say between TRC-TRL. That's where I started and these are what made me Love TR.
