THUG2, though...I definitely had fun with that one.
I think THUG had a better storyline. THUG2 was a little over the top, but still better than THAW lol. I also think a lot of people like THUG better because it was basically the first arcade style skateboarding game of it's kind and really allowed players to be creative.
Still, I like THUG2 over THUG because of it's style and no double taps. xD
