My greatest memory of Tomb Raider is probably the first time you meet the bear in Tomb Raider 1. I was looking around in the hut near a pool of water only to turn around and see the bear rearing up at me. That scared the life out of me at the time!

And handing the controller back to her dad after dying in Tomb Raider 2. Yeah, I was old enough to drink when that game came out and yes, I remember the dinosaurs and T-Rex from the original Tomb Raider 1. I guess I'm just that old.

@Byshop: Me too, although I don't remember the footage of Tomb Raider (1) looking so good. Must have been the anniversary edition I guess. I played the PS 1 version and the original game when they were released.

@gotrekfabian: The original game supported the first gen 3DFX Voodoo cards, which made a night and day difference in resolution and frame rate.

@Byshop: I didn't get to experience that pleasure, I was way too hard up to own a PC back then. I played the original on the Saturn (okay, my friends Saturn!) and enjoyed it so much I bought when I invested in a PlayStation.

Jess, you never even played Tomb Raider Anniversary when it came out? That would have caught you up on the T-Rex.

Nothing will ever top seeing that T-Rex charging at me, well at Lara, in the first Tomb Raider, I nearly dropped the controller. Unfortunately, he wasn't much of a fight as I accidentally found a spot to shoot at it without it being able to touch me. Oh well, it was still the best.

@ahpuck: I too found that spot. As I recall it was at the front of the valley somewhere on an elevated platform in the rock face. Mother and children were despatched with ease thanks to that!

Jess was only 5 years old when the first Tomb Raider came out,,,,

Now I feel old,,,Thanks.

PS,I still have the original game and the original "The Official Strategy Guide" book for the first game.

I was looking so forward to the game coming out and spent lots of hours playing.

So yes,I do remember the dinosaur and may have to revisit it now.

@homerpyle: It's cool to still have stuff like that of your own, moreso than just having purchased it later as a collectable.

Yeah I was impressed how lara picked up both pistols at the end of the rebooted first game. Made me smile to see the future games.

@sebbysebbseb: That wasn't the first reboot, it was from the latest release: Rise of the Tomb Raider.

I've never played through the reboot but that last moment was definitely top of the top 5. Even with me playing at least 5-6 Tomb Raider games--including 2 and 3 and 4--all the way through.

I swear like a sailor casually so it's not like I have some moral stance against it, but I don't see why this video needs so much of it. "...fucking t-rex", "...you're fucking lara croft", plus plenty more. Just comes off as sophmoric and unprofessional.

@shiss27: If you're a big fan of the swearing methodology of Jess McDonnell, you should definitely check out the old Gamespot House of Horrors episodes on Youtube :)

I would have to include any of the underwater levels from Tomb Raider 2... especially when you're swimming in a tunnel and a giant eel snaps out and kills you in one bite. Totally scares the crap out of you if you're not expecting it! Also, the epic battle against a dragon at the end of Tomb Raider 2.

If I were to list 5 epic Tomb Raider moments, none of them would involve the reboots. Not even top 20 moments.
