THPS series picked the worst time to fall off

#1seafoamwinterPosted 5/6/2013 8:28:37 PM
Its one of my favorite series' ever, my favorite was American Wasteland. I feel the open-world ideas they had for THAW could've reached it's full potential on an HD system...

Nostalgia is awesome

it was a passing fad. skate came along and made realistic skateboard games popular. now both are in the past, but THPS might make a comeback in a few years as long as they ditch the cheesy gimmicks and cash in on the nostalgia and crazy gameplay.

THPS HD got some hate for being only 30 frames per second and not having all the levels from 1 and 2 (which was an unrealistic expectation anyway), but it got the series a bit back on track from the Ride and Shred games and it sold well for a downloadable game.

They also talked about the possibility of making a fuller THPS game after HD.

As for the open world stuff, Project 8 and Proving Ground did it without loading and it was pretty fun and cool but Skate did their open worlds better. I still loved the crazy gameplay though.

Being a skater myself, I'll never forget when THPS first came out. Up until then all skateboarding games were pretty ***** and obviously made by people that didn't know much about it. There was Skate or Die, 720*....I even had some **** game that had an Ocean Pacific clothing license.

THPS was the first skateboarding game that was authentic....from the actual mechanics of the sport to the style, music.....just the overall culture. A demo came with an issue of PlayStation magazine and my buddies and I played just that hanger level for hours....days. Loved that game.

It all started to fall apart around THUG though IMHO. Once they started to buy into the whole "Jackass" thing (never a fan, but I did subscribe to Big Brother) and the gameplay morphed into some 100X combo telephone wire grinding mess, I got turned off. Too ridiculous at that point.

Most people have an opinion like yours. THAW's mainly my favorite cuz I have a ton of badass memories of me and my cousin playing it

I did like THPS:HD and im currently going through the projectives (which are hard as hell)



Does have a few glaring issues like the framerate, no offline 2player and no creation modes. But i still get alot of old school fun out of it

THPS:HD should be forgotten and never mentioned again, the only reason they released THPS:HD was as a cash cow to bleed the fans out of dlc, i find that as a insult, we wanted a hd collection of the best tony hawks ps2 games and instead we got THPS:HD.

also the tony hawks series has one of the best soundtracks in a gaming series, there was a few hiphop/rap artists i never heard of before i played the tony hawks games.

imo american wasteland was the worst in the series, they removed a lot of the customization from the game, the levels were uninspiring, the soundtrack was not that great, thug was the best in the series imo.

hence my reason why its a abomination, it also feels rushed and empty, most of the moves from the older games were gone too. (revert)
