'2021 marks the 25th Anniversary of the Tomb Raider franchise and the arrival of gaming's greatest heroine. Over the last quarter of a century, 12 Tomb Raider games have been released for the main series along with 13 mobile and spinoff games (including Gameboy Color), and even an interactive DVD game.

My introduction to Tomb Raider was in 2000 and since then I have played every single one of the series, so here’s my personal Top 10.'

Having been a large part of the Tomb Raider fandom since 2000, Ash of Tomb of Ash has curated his favourite games into one list for Tomb Raider's 25th Anniversary. Of course, please be wary of spoilers!

All of the Tomb Raider series can still be played classically on the PlayStation One or Two bought through resellers on Amazon, but if you're in need of a modern day solution, you can purchase even the oldest of Tomb Raider games on PC via videogame marketplaces such as Steam.
