It's a pretty dreadful list. These days I don't have much trust in gaming journos anymore.

You can't have the top Tomb Raider game be one that doesn't even include Lara dual wielding her iconography and that caused a massive exclusivity drama cutting off the majority of the fandom. Sorrryyy.

It's obvious a lot of these lists care more about pretty graphics and presentation. When for me it's more about the original gameplay that made the games special.

The author put together a challenges guide for Shadow.

That's enough to write this entire thing off

These mainstream gaming sites that have listed the "top best TRs" in the past years always put Rise and TR2013 at the top simply because they're the most recent games that were successful. Notice how TR1 always follows right after because everyone knows that's the best. But they can't stay current and relevant if they still rank a game from 1996 as the top one.

When the next TR game comes out, if it isn't a total disaster, they'll rank that as the best game just because it's the most recent and relevant.

Plus everyone knows this is the 1000% true and accurate order:

1. TR4
2. AOD
3. TR2
4. TR1
5. TR5
6. TR3
(Bonus: LC: Go)

*great chasms of void open darkness the size of Jupiter*

(Bonus: Guardian of Light)
7. Underworld
8. Legend
9. Anniversary
(Bonus: Temple of Osiris)

*even greater open chasms of darkness the size of Aldebaran*



*even greater chasms of darkness filled with torment and despair the size of UY Scuti*

10. TR2013
11. Rise
12. Shadow

(Bonus: LC Relic Run)
(Bonus: TR Reloaded... probably...)

Most journalism friendly list for those article writers who most likely don't have their own opinions, or have only ever played a handful of titles half way through a couple of years ago:

2013
Legend
Rise
TR1
TR2
*the rest in any order*
Chronicles
AoD

Quite a questionable list when Tomb Raider 4Ö the only game thatís purely set in Egypt and focussed on Tomb Raiding, is put near last place. Not to mention itís non-linear too which allows for so much more exploration, and visually some bits of it are fantastic (like the whole of Alexandria).

Though yeah, I canít imagine whoever wrote the list put any time or thought into it.
