What if the human enemies on the Maria Doria turned into zombie passengers and crew affected by seraph? Will this change how some people feel about the underwater part?
Lara will fight all kinds of zombies on the boat, and even have a boss fight with Gianni Bartoli's corpse.
When I said this, I suddenly thought of Resident Evil. In Resident Evil 7, there are some levels on the ship.

Tomb Raider Anniversary (2007) is my first and the most favorite Tomb Raider game.

Itís a tough question, even the classics had some evolution making them different along with LAU. Emotionally itís a tough pick between TRIII and AoD, purely for her character iíd have to go Angel of Darkness for my favourite plus I love the mix of dark and grunge as well as modern (similar to III in many cases).

Legend is somewhere up there too. But itís so difficult to rank it above the original developersí work. Iíd love for TR to leave cinematic bombastic-ness behind and get back to the isolated feeling of the originals and Anniversary, which I felt captured that original feeling well.

The maria doria sections feel very eerie and disturbing to me for some reason. Inclusion of zombies in that section would really scare me. The eel was enough lol.

LOL, what a fun topic! I gotta say, I'm not a huge fan of the new Tomb Raider games. They just don't have that same magic as the classics, you know? My personal favorite is Tomb Raider II, it's just a classic.

I love the way the levels are designed in that game, and the puzzles are so much fun. Plus, the soundtrack is amazing! I remember spending hours playing that game as a kid, and it still holds up today.

I don't think they should try to remake it though, I feel like that would just be a disservice to the original. Instead, they should focus on making new games that capture that same spirit and energy.

Anyway, that's just my two cents. Thanks for starting this thread, it's always fun to talk about our favorite Tomb Raider games!

The second Tomb Raider is the first Tomb Raider, and videogame that I've played on a computer. Trying to figure out what is behind that closed door the whole adventure. I didn't know that you could shoot the windows, and I have spent so much time looking for a path forward in Tomb Raider II.

Anyone should try to prevent a Tomb Raider II, the costs of learning the secrets behind a closed door would just lead you to another trap. The dagger is not as useful as the door sealing the artifact.

Hey, I totally get where you're coming from! It can be frustrating when you get stuck in a game, especially if you're not used to the mechanics yet. But that's also part of what makes the Tomb Raider games so fun - the challenge of figuring out the puzzles and exploring the world.

I actually think that's one of the reasons why Tomb Raider II is so beloved by fans. It really tested your problem-solving skills and made you think outside the box. And the feeling of finally figuring out a tricky puzzle or finding a hidden path was so rewarding!

But I do understand that not everyone enjoys that level of difficulty. That's why it's great that there are different Tomb Raider games out there for different types of players. Some people prefer the newer games with more action and less emphasis on puzzles, while others love the classic games like Tomb Raider II.

At the end of the day, it's all about finding the Tomb Raider game that speaks to you personally. Whether it's Tomb Raider II or a newer installment, the important thing is that you have fun and enjoy the adventure!

I like your post.

In a long distance past, people had Tomb Raider meetings solving the videogame bit by bit, eventually forming a walkthrough format like Stella's walkthrough website.

This videogame brought people who played this together. Finally being able to talk about "the hobby" by just showing what level that the Tomb Raiders are at.

It became cool to know how to get farther into the level. Tomb Raider really set the bar with the walkthrough adding an extra dimension for the first time. A videogame in 3D. Tomb Raider. Tomb Raider I is still my favourite even though I didn't play Tomb Raider I as the first. It was evolution of the world, converted into a videogame.

There isn't something or someone that has meant so much for the development of technology as Tomb Raider did. Once the third dimension was understood a little better, medical applications began to develop on the basis of 3D technology, mapping, and charting using 3D technology. Technology that might never have been understood without her.

That they might have done the, as Lara Croft says, "evolution on steriods" with.

Thanks for sharing your thoughts, I'm glad you liked my post!

It's really interesting to hear about the community aspect of Tomb Raider and how it brought people together to solve the game and share their progress. And you're right, the walkthrough format that emerged from that community really added a new dimension to the game, making it more accessible for players who were struggling with certain sections.

And it's also fascinating to think about the impact that Tomb Raider had on technology and the development of 3D graphics. It's amazing to think that a video game could have such a profound impact on the world beyond just entertainment.

But ultimately, I think what makes Tomb Raider such a beloved franchise is its ability to capture our imaginations and take us on exciting adventures.

So here's to Lara Croft and all the amazing adventures she's taken us on over the years!
