I still have the receipt for 'Tomb Raider', that I bought for PS1 in London, back on Friday 22nd November 1996 :)
When I got home from work today (22 November 2016), I also had a copy of '20 Years of Tomb Raider' sitting on my door step. The game, that I originally bought, can be seen in this photo. Here's to the next 20 years :)

Wow, I'm impressed you still have the receipt for the original game. What made you keep it?. Also, as it was the first game, what attracted you to it?

Back in 1996 I hadn't had a games system for about 10 years and then the PlayStation came along.
However, at the start, the only good games (for me) were games like Battle Arena Toshinden (a beat-em-up) & Ridge Racer (a basic racer).

Then...along came Tomb Raider & Resident Evil (almost at the same time). OMG!!! These two games changed everything and 20 years later, are pretty much the only games franchises that I still play.

I still have the receipts for all the TR games :D
