Were a fan of Tony Hawks pro skater back in the day? Good
Don' know about you guy's but THPS 2 was one of the childhood games for me. Still remember playing it through with all the characters, just to unlock their new board-arts and videos. And the song on the soundtrack (Lagwagon - May 16th). The whole trailer just brings back so much memories.
And say what you will, video games in your youth were always cooler than they could be now, in adulthood. :p

Awesome! Yeah the first game was a huge part of my childhood. Will definitely be getting this, getting some mates round with beer and pizza and collecting all the Skate letters :D

I played this to death with a few friends as a kid. I used to be heavily into skateboarding, so we played this all the time, only turning it off to go skating ourselves or to watch Rocket Power.

I'm pretty close to downloading this. Be nice to bring back some childhood memories.
I remember working with my dad when I was about seven and earning about $50 (huge money for a seven year old) then making the video store guy an offer he couldn't refuse for this game. So many hours spent on it. Come to think of it, where the hell is my original copy of this game?
I just picked up Skate 3 the other day so might wait a little before getting this.

I've spent way too much time with THPS in my childhood. I understand playing it through with a few skaters but all of them (the roster was sth like 12-13 + the bonus characers). All that just to see new 2 minute long clips. Every single playthrough felt like the 1st one.

Just saw this thread but man I loved these games. I played a ton of them. 1 to American wasteland. I still remember unlocking Officer Dick and Private Carerra in the first one lol. Awesome games for sure.

Spiderman was my favorite in the 2nd one. Playing Spidey on PS1 and receiveing him in THPS2 in the same time was gold. (Both games were Neversoft/Activision products).

Yeah spider was pretty sweet. I liked the first thps underground as well. They started getting kind of old with the newer ones though. The only skating game I have played in the last few years is Skate which is pretty awesome.
