Default Rank the plot of every Tomb Raider game

Probably done a hundred times in different threads but I felt like making one solely dedicated to your rankings of the stories in the Tomb Raider series!

I'm talking structure of the plot, quality and pacing of the story arc, writing, characters, dialogues, world building and lore, that kind of stuff.


Here's my ranking:
12) Shadow of the Tomb Raider
11) Tomb Raider: Chronicles
10) Tomb Raider III: Adventures of Lara Croft
9) Tomb Raider: Anniversary
8) Tomb Raider
7) Rise of the Tomb Raider
6) Tomb Raider II
5) Tomb Raider: The Angel of Darkness
4) Tomb Raider: Underworld
3) Tomb Raider IV: The Last Revelation
2) Tomb Raider 2013
1) Tomb Raider: Legend

From favorite to least:

1. AoD
2. TR3
3. TR2
4. TR1
5. Legend
6. TLR
7. Shadow
8. 2013
9. Anniversary
10. Rise
11. Chronicles
12. Underworld

Other than the bottom two, this list interestingly enough hardly reflects my thoughts on the games overall. I don't need a good story to consider the game great.

I can't disagree with this, I was contemplating putting it on the bottom since that game didn't even have a real plot to go off of. At first it was going to be about something else, but then they forced and dragged the Legend plot to continue in one of the worst and most boring ways possible. I especially hated how they brought back Natla in that game as she wasn't very memorable at all.

I mean I didn't really care much for Legends parental mess, but did they really have to continue that storyline? They could have did a spin off where Lara finds her mother in Avalan and made Underworld a new game with a brand new story.

I just don't like Underworlds story that much at all, but it was a struggle for me compared to Shadow. Maybe I should switch Shadow in my list, but I don't know.

Edit

I just did, as much as I don't like Shadows story I think over all Underworld just really disappointed me when it came out story wise.
