Thrasher for sure. I still have my copy and play it on my PS2. I am looking forward to EA's SKATE, it has a sick line up of skaters if nothing else.

Thrasher was the best. Tricks actually looked kind of cool, and you got kicked out of spots. I think I still have it somewhere but no playstation.

I'm glad to see the arcade game that had the board you stand on and pop the tail to do tricks is gaining steam.

Yeah, underground was up there for sure. I still like tony 4 the best. I could go skate San Fran all day in that game and never get bored.

Did anybody ever play the x-games one? I remember seeing an ad for it in an old Transworld, and thought it looked okay.

Thrasher was unbelievably sick.Converse,Forties,Dvs when they were more ghetto and with a better team,Venice,Washington park in NY and all the other NY spots,SF had Embarco,china banks and a sick downhill level,all the super sick old school music,the sick characters like roach the tech skater and my favourite dude with the hood,I forgot his name.The levels were all soo on point,the pushing was sick,all the tricks looked good and you could actually do bs and fs flips,nollie and fakie aswell.best game ever.You could actually have a real game of skate with 2 player aswell.i bought a ps1 and a copy of thrasher again cause i love it.grind session was pretty rad aswell,the skater line up was good,templeton etc and the levels were pretty rad aswell,good physics too.

The Xgames one was pretty shit i thought,then there was a evolution one which was weird had lame levels and stuff but you could put stickers on your board and it had Appleyard and some other pretty cool fools in it.Physics and tricks were good though.

T&C Surf and Skate, no doubt... 'cause you could skate, then you could get to know your roots by hitting some waves, brah.

Plus, Town & Country was way core.

in all seriousness, if i want to get a skating like experience on a video game I play GTA:SA and use either the motorbike or the bmx

you have to find spots and make up your own tricks. i've hit street gaps to back lips on the tops of buildings with the motorbike coming off stairwells and got a 360 over a freeway on ramp into the freeway gap i found on the bmx. it's not like the skate games where everything is done for you and the spots are overly intentional. bunnyhop manuals on walls are fun, all kinds of fun shit to do in that game that to me feels a lot more like what I do on a skateboard than any skate game out to date.

but skate will change that. the controls on that game are sick and i have a feeling that having to practice tricks before you can do them will make all the difference in the world when it comes to feeling like actual skating, more so that smooth physics or likable pros characters would.

i don't know. the video i've seen suggests otherwise. the controls might be cool and all, but the physics still look just like THPS 2 in those intros on the epicly laterd shows. don't get me wrong, i love THPS 2, but for all the hype this is getting it makes me wonder.

just the fact that you use both joysticks to control the feet seems like a huge step in the right direction.

for one thing, switch might actually become a real game play element. you'd have to learn your tricks both ways and you could have a weaker way which would be switch for you. i'm imagining that a treflip would probably be something like a 360 pile driver in street fighter, which would be really hard to get on lock with both thumbs, not to mention that it's just hard to do (like it should be).

I think your hopes are too high for this game.  From everything I've seen, the next tony hawk is looking better.

one of the best things about thrasher is that you could beat the levels doing real tricks. not 720 kickflip indy revert to manual to noseblunt around the fountain 7 times nollie tre out
