Today, everyone in the entire world has “Superman” by Goldfinger stuck in their head—a marked increase from the usual 70 per cent on any given day. Why? Because Tony Hawk, famous for being unrecognizable while in airport security lines (and also skating), is back.
Publisher Activision, developer Vicarious Visions, and the beloved board lord himself announced Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 + 2, a remaster of the first two games in the nostalgia-soaked series. The game will include maps and skaters from the original games, as well as songs from the original soundtrack. There will also be “new features” and, of course, thoroughly spruced-up graphics. The internet, which has spent all its life preparing for this exact day, freaked out.

I beat my high school boyfriend at Tony Hawk's Pro Skater in 1999 and shortly after he dumped me & when I asked why he said "just because" but I knew it was because I beat him at THPS

You either never played Tony Hawk, or you bought a skateboard and tried to do it in real life. That's how hype it was.

I'm loving how the Crash Remastered team is doing a Tony Hawk HD remake
Although I hope they have an option for the blue sky Venice beach. The new game at least looks much better than the Surface of Mars style from the previous HD remake pic.twitter.com/oaPdxtXfFf

Fired up for Tony Hawk's Pro Skater collection, but what will it take @EA to lean into a new #Skate4? EA, I'll buy the title from you all and try to get it done if you all are just going to sit on it!
