Yes, bagging 17th is reason for celebration. Topping the likes of Fallout 3, Mirror’s Edge and Prince of Persia (the latter two surprisingly excluded from the list), one just can’t help but feel reassured that the franchise’s staying power is set in stone even after more than a decade in the industry. EDGE puts it this way:

From an execution standpoint, Crystal Dynamics has saved the once flagging Tomb Raider franchise with apparent confidence, gathering up all of the strengths established early in the franchise’s life and updating them for modern gamers. Lara Croft’s latest action adventure is one filled with eye-popping moments and a style fit for Tomb Raider.

The UK-based magazine has been notorious for giving popular and generally well-received games such as Mirror’s Edge and Prince of Persia less favorable scores of 5 (out of 10) while giving Tomb Raider Underworld an 8 – a score that has done quite the job of erasing doubts about Lara Croft from the general gaming community.

In at top 5 are Braid, Gears of War 2, Fable II, Grand Theft Auto IV, and LittleBigPlanet (in ascending order). Here’s a jump to the full list.
