Today Tony Hawk took part in a Reddit Ask Me Anything. Today I learned a lot of things. I learned that Tony Hawk totally plays as himself in his games. I learned that Tony Hawk game Skate a try, but didn't play it much. I also learned that Tony Hawk has a favourite.
And that favourite is Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 2.
"[M]y favorite is THPS2 because it put skateboarding on the map as a videogame genre," he said, "and many people have said it is the reason they started skating at all."
Personally, I've always thought Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 3 was the best of the bunch, mainly because it added the ability to revert and link tricks, but who am I to question the great Tony Hawk.
As we all know — to our great disappointment — the next Tony Hawk game is appearing on mobile devices only, but as for another console based Tony Hawk's Pro Skater...
"There is a CHANCE of something in the future for newer consoles," he wrote. "In the meanwhile, we are releasing TH Shred Sessions for mobile devices (iOS, Android, tablets) soon-ish. I'm going rogue with information at this point so I better shut up now."
So you're saying there's a chance, Tony? You're saying there's a chance?
