Tony Hawk's Pro Skater
This isn't Tony Hawk, but a serious sim-approach to a sport often defined by sandbox games.
'Tony Hawk's Pro Skater' inspired a generation of young kids to pick up a board. Now, skater Nyjah Huston is one of the leaders of the sport.
After a series of middling and bad entries in the late 2000s, Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 1 and THPS2 are coming back in September.
Without Tony Hawk's Pro Skater, Grand Theft Auto, and Dave Mirra, my music library would probably be a near empty vessel.
The year 2000 was a beautiful time to be a kid. Tony Hawks Pro Skater 2 was on Playstation, Scary Movie was in the cinema and "Heaven is a Halfpipe" was on the radio.
Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 5 looks a little too much like the original.
