Now it has been with us for years, but how did you hear about it? I heard about it from my friend, who when we were in school played the first game and she got me into it when I played it at her house, then I went out and bought it, so I could play it at home:p If it weren't for her, I probs wouldn't have gotten into it. I am greatful for playing it round her house:rolleyes: But she kept scaring me about the T-Rex part!!!!!!!

When I got my playstation, my Dad bought Tomb Raider for himself ; I needed to watch most of the time because my parents were always on it!

Hi, I'm new on this forum, thought this thread would be a nice place for the first post! :)
I was introduced to Tomb Raider in 1999, after TRL was released. A friend gave me a copy, because I just got a new PC but didn't have any new games to play, and he said I'd love it (even though I was more into first-person shooters). Well, he was right!
Must confess that I didn't buy it back then, but when the Collection (1-6) was released in 2006, I picked that up.
I haven't played all parts, but Legend and Anniversary are my favorites.

I never even heard of the game at the time I got it. I was at Home Depot(yes home depot) back in 1996 and its the one and only time ive seen a home depot sell PC games. But anyhow. I was looking through the games and such(heck they even had Descent if anyone else has heard of it) and I saw a game called Tomb Raider in a pyramid type box and asked my grandma(who i lived with) If I could get the game.i was 10 almost 11 back then and she let me buy it and i went home and installed it on my PC.

Long story short. I've been playing the entire series since then :thumbsup:

First time for me was when I saw the cover of a popular science magazine. It said: 'Who is Lara Croft?' with a picture of her. That would be around 1996/7, at the time I didn't know and didn't care.

When I was six me and my sister borrowed my cousin's TR3. My sister played and i watched. Later we played Tr1 from other cousin. I loved it but it was very hard for me to play it.

When Legend was released I was 13, I read about it in a games magazine, bought it and I loved it. since then I'm trying to buy all the TR games, but I can't find all of them.:(

first time i played it was at my cousins, that was tomb raider 2 and 1 (in that order) i found it too hard at the time, so never played it after, and then years later:


my father installed it for no reason. it just seemed to be fun (tomb raider 3), so then my sister (annebelle) tried it out.. and i watched and it was a lot of fun

(her sister (annebelle) would be me;))

My mum and dad were shopping in PC World because they were planning to buy a new PC for Christmas. At the front of the shop playing on a computer monitor was Tomb Raider 1, so while my parents spent and hour or two looking for the right PC for them, I spent the entire time watching this demo. Later, when we were leaving, I said to my dad that I wanted "the running, jumping and swimming lady game". I was 7. That Christmas, I got TR1 and TR2 to play on the new PC. :D

My older sister bought that game around ten years ago, in 1998 (obviously it's TR 3 :) ) when she was still in college. During the term break, she brought that game back home and I was 11 at that time. She installed that game in our PC. I watched her play Lara's home and for whatever reason, I got crazy about it..

My sister kept telling me that the game is to hard for me (she, herself was unable to complete the second level - The Temple Ruins, let alone me, her 11 years old brother.) I insisted on playing... so I would sneak up to the computer and play it secretly for a few months.

And my sister was right. That game proves too difficult for me. It took me two years to finally beat the first level - Jungle, and another two years to complete the Temple Ruins, level 2. I finally completed Tomb Raider 3 in 2004, after seven long years. But in between, I've completed Tomb Raider Chronicles and Tomb Raider Angel of Darkness. Phew!

Let's face it... TR 3 IS one of the most difficult TR series ever!!! :mad2:

I saw the first TR in a store years ago, 1996/1997?? (Aahhhh, the good old days..............) and bought it cause it seemed like a fun game. I had actually never heard of TR or LC before!

Well, it proved to be a nice game alright :D

My dad bought a new computer and we asked for some games. It was a pentium 2. The sales person gave us this big box with the tomb raider 2 game. Funny how games came in boxes back then. I was about 9, 10. Never played the game untill i got older. Those big dudes with the bats really scared me. Not to mention the spiders! Yuk!!!!
And now they're back in underworld
