It definitely did, especially with going on sale soon after release!

Not that I'm complaining, I got a friend who was interested in the series all the games for dirt-cheap for less than a full price game.

But the classics weren't triple A games though. Buying games from the 90's is always gonna be cheap now

....yes I did get that. But why those 2 games specifically I wonder?

They were when they were released weren't they? Even though it was a small team creating them, I'm sure 90% of big games were made by not so big a staff.

They were the AAA games of their time. Reflected by how Eidos decided to handle the franchises success

Ah, the integrity of the video game, of the work, thus the relationship with the fan base, was not taken into consideration or seen as valuable relative to making money, and so there is no Tomb Raider. Hmmm

Creative people making the games, less creative people in other areas, I guess.

Well well well. Square Enix pulled a lot of games off from Geforce now including Tomb Raider triology.
Thank god I was able to play them before that happened. It sucks big time.

I've literally got 3/4 copies of the reboot trilogy on sale

TR 2013 was discounted as a preorder incentive on Steam
Rise was the GoTY edition with all DLC foe 40 on PS4 which to me given the content is still a sale.
I got a free copy of 2013 with Rise
Shadow is literally the only game I bought full price... then it went on sale a week later.


The reboot trilogy may be one of the best selling eras but it certainly has had a lot of pushes.
