I like lot of Underworld scenes, actually. Meeting the doppelgänger through the glass, finding Amelia and the subsequent doppelgänger fight, Amanda fending off the yetis, and the melancholic ending. How a lot of people feel watching AoD Lara disappearing into the shadows is how I feel about LAU Lara walking away into the ruins in Nepal. Always feels like the end of an era.

Honourable mentions to “I’m not going home”, the post-tsunami scene with Jonah, and Lara accepting the role of Ix Chel.

I generally enjoyed the flashback cutscenes from the Classic games where they try to provide some backstory of the artifact. To be more specific, I like the flashbacks from the first 3 games - flashback explaining Natla's imprisonment (TRI), the monks destroy the Dragon and sealing the Dagger of Xian in the Temple of Xian (TRII), and Darwin and his crew discovering the meteorite artifacts (TRIII). Out of all three of them, I like the TRII flashback the most since I thought it was really cool to see the final moments of the Dagger of Xian being locked away before Lara gets her hands on it centuries later.

My favorite in-game cutscene is the conversation between Willard and Lara at the end of the Antarctica level. Some of my favorite Lara Croft lines were from that scene -

"At home?! I just met a man that might has well been Brundlefly."
"Not everyone here wants to be guinea pigs, multi-appendage or not."
"Your perception of good timing is... bad!"

(Probably mixed up some of these quotes since I'm phrasing from memory.)

I also like how she was disgusted with Willard's attitude towards his own employees turning into mutants.

I agree. I always feel that scene most fully shows Lara at her best all round. She has some action, though not over the top as she clearly struggles to beat the guy in a fight and she shows her dry humour and intelligence too.

It’s hard to choose but maybe the Jeep Chase from
TR2. The end of the Tibet levels.

It’s evening, snowing, she wanders out of a cave with just the sound of her boots crunching snow.

Slips into a Jeep and finds the keys.
The chase with her losing the attacking Jeep and then taking out the driver while Marco is on her heels as she makes a jump across a ravine.
Driving back to where it all began and entering the Temple of Xian.

Very cool!

so many.............the beginning (cg) of the maria doria set of levels with lara in the ocean, the ending of angel of darkness, the finale scene with amanda and lara in legend when lara uses to stones and you realize what's going on, the scene with lara and natla in underworld when she breaks the glass with the hammer, the ending of TR2013 and lara saying 'im not going home', lara losing it in shadow and coming out of the water are a few. its impossible to pick one.

Probably the Caves FMV from TR1 and the Bartoli scene in the Temple of Xian.
