I love Tomb Raider.
I liked jumping for ledges in St Francis' Folly and all the dark space between you and the ground far below. I liked seeing the T Rex emerge from the drawspace; I'd take hours to kill it because I was too scared to go fight out in the open. I liked being frightened out of my wits by the mummy cats jumping out at me from nowhere, the excitement when the game went into a cutscene.
I fell in love with King Midas' Palace. I was terrified of that golden hand.
I was stuck in the Cistern for years - too young to be playing anyway and too scared of Pierre - I went back and completed it later and it was pretty damn satisfying.
Getting a secret you always knew was there but couldn't reach. That fantastic 'brrring' sound effect.
Picking up the shotgun for the first time.
The first three bats, and the music.
Tomb raider was the first game I ever played seriously and Lara's always been my hero.
