Chronicles as favourite? thats a big call

For me it would be

Tomb Raider - The best has always been the original, real tombs, great story and just perfect in every way.

Tomb Raider II - A brilliant sequel that was action packed & brought us some phenomenal levels & arguably the best sections in China & Italy.

Tomb Raider III - Some levels in this game were stunning such as the South Pacific ones and others let it down but as a whole a solid game.

Tomb Raider Chronicles - Decent game which brought decent levels and fun new mechanics but was very short.

Tomb Raider The Last Revelation - An ok game with great levels scattered but i didn't like the level select option you got & some segments were very slow like the beginning.

I’m very glad that there are other people like me.
Only the middle changes:

1) TR5
2) TR1
3) TR4
4) TR3
5) >>> TR2

I respect your opinions (your list in this situation). Can’t you people also respect other opinions?

If we’re at this point, I would like to add that TR2 added nothing to the franchise apart from an in-game ponytail. Urban areas would have eventually appeared and new outfits is nothing to write home about. Also, TR2 contained the worst written Lara ever, with her witty 90’s one-liners and extremely cold attitude.

I do respect everyone's opinion on here im just a little surprised is all & would love to hear why you prefer it to the others? What's its strengths? What does it do for you that the others don't?

I would love to know what levels are some of your favourite in the classic franchise, i'm guessing chronicles ones are definitely up there?

1. Tomb Raider II, Starring Lara Croft
2. Tomb Raider: The Last Revelation
3. Tomb Raider III: Adventures of Lara Croft
4. Tomb Raider, Featuring Lara Croft
5. Tomb Raider: Chronicles

I like the atmosphere and themes present in Tomb Raider II as well as the levels and story.

Love Egypt so The Last Revelation is a close second. It's a bit too long but not necessarily in an annoying way.

I love Tomb Raider III's levels a lot and the story is cool but it's just too intent on killing you 😂 Best Classic Croft Manor though.

This is probably a controversial one but the original's story and level design bore me a lot. Guess having played Anniversary first doesn't help either, though I'm not particularly fond of it either.

Chronicles comes in last because I don't think I'm vibing at all with the theme of the game and I didn't find any level particularly interesting. Like her outfits though.

TR4
TR2
TR1
TR3
TR5
AoD - I dunno why no one else is mentioning AoD, is it not a Classic? It seems a bit weird to leave it out there on its own.

TRs 1&2 subject to switch .

I don't personally consider AOD as part of the classics , it was drastically different to them (as it was meant to be) .

A different engine, different animations, and a new upgraded model doesn’t = drastically different. It was set in the same timeline as the Classics and was a direct sequel to TLR and Chronicles (intended or not, satisfying or not).

With your logic, Underworld is not part of the Legend timeline. Different engine, different animations, a new upgraded model, same timeline, direct sequel...
