Ranking the Tomb Raider Trilogy Reboot Games

With all the installments in the Tomb Raider reboot trilogy out, it is the perfect time to rank these great games. They bring back the familiar fun of the series, and each title provides something special and unique. The reboot takes Lara's epic story back to its origins to show gamers how she transforms from the daughter of an explorer to a butt-kicking master of the wild.

I enjoyed Shadow the most due to the focus on exploration.

A bit unrelated rant, but it does involve my biggest gripe with the Tomb Raider series: I don’t like killing people in games just like that in dozens and dozens. Makes me feel like a mass murderer instead of an adventurer and explorer. I wish games had killing only when it’s incredibly significant or there’s no way around it (because that’s how normal people act), and they’d explore the side effects it has on human psyche much deeper. Many triple A games are like the action movies in the 80s. I think Arnold in Commando killed around 190 people in a couple of days. I’m pretty sure Lara did the same amount. Same in RDR2. Normally, a person goes crazy after killing another human being, and starts to get seriously depressed, if they are not psychopaths. Indie games explore this much better, Hotline Miami was a great example (a game where killing makes you feel powerful, yet uncomfortable for a reason.)

I wish they just kept it like the original where you fight animals mostly and humans rarely.

Haha well yeah, I don't know if shooting animals with dual wielding handguns is the better option here. I mean, I'm sure human mind has more creative ways to make one feel interested in a new environment and explore. A great example of that is Disco Elysium.

My personal order would be:

1. Rise of the Tomb Raider
2. Tomb Raider
3. Shadow of the Tomb Raider

I feel like Rise was a solid A, Tomb Raider was an A-, and Shadow was a B.
