Thrasher of course.

Ive e-mailed Rockstar games to try a mix of a GTA City w/ Skateboarding. Replied only saying "thanks, but we are to busy planning for the future."

Skate or Die, T&C, and 720.  In that order.

Demo comes out Tuesday morning for the 360, if you have one.

I never had the chance to buy Thrasher, but I do remember playing the shit out of the demo when I was younger. It was definitely hard to do shit. I think Skate will top it.

the tutorials on the video page where what got me hyped on the game: http://www.ea.com/skate/theater.jsp

i've been waiting to buy a PS3 for the first good game to come out and i've actually decided to go ahead and get one when this drops next month.

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.

cyrus.  thrasher was the greatest videogame ever

apparently the quickest you could skate from one end of town to the other would be about 10 minutes if you don't fall or get lost and apparently the game developers get lost in the city pretty frequently because it's so big.

i had my doubts about the game being unrealistic, but after watching those videos im impressed. how can they seriously cram that much shit into a videogame?

i think it's tight how to do grind and slide tricks there's not button required and the way you do it is by timing your ollie right then rotating your body so that your board is where it needs to be when you hit the rail. huge step up over all other games right there.

You can make online skate videos with the DEMO? Cripes, kiss my social life goodbye. Luckily for us, the word from the official forums is that the expected delay should not last more than a week.

Fuck thats gonna be crazy to see, hopefully a PS3 demo will come out soon

So theres no grind button?  You just turn and hopefully he'll land in the grind you want?

thps2 or thps4. I've never played thrasher, but I think a video game store close to the local shop sells it used.

yeah and I guess the difference between a backlip and back nose blunt would be based on how fast your going, how close to the rail you ollie and how hard you pop. seems to me like it would be more fun than just ollie and push a button to actually have to think about your setup and actually have to try something a few times before you can do it.
