At this point, I'm not really sure it is fair to rank these games against each other. After so much time and so much development, it's very similar to trying to rank athletes without taking the context of their era into account. Is it fair to rate a game made in 1996 against a game made in 2018?

I'm not sure it is. Different facets were emphasized, both by the expected audience of the times, the abilities of the technology, and the historical significance of the franchise.

With that in mind, I'll rate them in terms of their respective eras. I'm not rating the eras themselves, merely each game's place within it.

CORE-Era

1: TR
2: TLR
3: TR2
4: TR3
5: AoD
6: TRC

LAU-Era

1: TRA
2: TRU
3: TRL

Reboot-Era

1: RotTR
2: SotTR (though this may move to #1 as more of the DLC is released)
3: TR

I always have difficulty ranking all the games together, usually have to separate the eras. The following list then may be subject to change

Tomb Raider: The Last Revelation
Shadow of the Tomb Raider
Tomb Raider 1 and Tomb Raider: Anniversary
Tomb Raider 2
Rise of the Tomb Raider
Tomb Raider: Legend
Tomb Raider 2013
Tomb Raider 3
Tomb Raider: Underworld
Tomb Raider: Chronicles
Tomb Raider: The Angel of Darkness.

I was going to do what Ashnod did, but changed my mind. But I agree with their sentiments.

Eh. My top three is the same as ever:

TR3
SOTTR
TRC

The rest, then:

TR1
TRL
ROTTR
TR2
AOD
TR2013
TR4
TRA
TRU

That looks about right, to me...

Honestly, yes. It's a case of what are you most likely to go back to.
