THPS Documentary
« on: March 15, 2017, 08:51:12 PM »
I was in high school and had been skating for a few years when my buddy got the demo disc, but we played that thing to death.  Killed so much time on the the one with SF. I think it was 2? Pretty cool idea for a doc.

Could be cool, as someone who started skating after vivaciously playing through THPS2 and THPS3 I'm definitely interested in this. I have a real issue when documentaries don't have any falling action, though, and I'm curious as to how the game's eventual downfall will be broached.

I want to know if they will talk about the THPS online clans and nerd communities.

I was always really good at THPS, but dorked the fuck out on it when I started playing it online. There were so many clans, and different "ways" to play the game, like it was skateboarding. Styling, improving, whoring (getting the most points), doing "transfers" (imagine tech tricks), and glitchers/hackers. I even won a contest before with some prizes from Activision.

God, I'm kind of embarrassed now. haha

two of my friends got really big into the first underground game online and playing the game with them wasnt even fun. one of my friends could just go forever in the moscow level.

ill definitely watch it. the first THPS was a huge influence for me and why i started skating. i played them all up until the one called american wasteland i think, and besides GTA vice city, the only games i had on ps2 were the tony hawk games. theyre still fun to dig out and play now.

wouldnt be skating if it wasnt for this game. (thps4) seems like it would be a great idea.

Tony Hawk was actually in my neighborhood two hours ago. I would of had him autograph my copy of Tony Hawk's Underground but I think he left town already.

Ahahahah, I remember clans in THPS 3 online, even tried to start my own with a buddy. Never really got into that borderline cheating stuff though. Was the one back and forth at 3rd and army called the 'robot line' or something like that? Mannnnn, good times back then using 56k to play THPS online haha.

I also had the demo disk before it came out and played the SHIT out of it. Ah, good times with THPS. Anyone remember Grind Session? I always thought that was a fun game too, maybe because Ed Templeton was a main character...

Cool idea for a doc. I've never donated/funded any crowdsourced ideas but think I will contribute to this one.

Played them all to death...I think THPS2 got the most love tho.

Was fortunate enough to work on THP8 when I worked at Activision; I was so stoked.

This could be cool, i'd check it out. Personally THPS 4 was always my favourite, at my old house i had a playstation hooked up so i could still play it.

Isn't THPS 5 just over a year old? It sucks so bad it's the only skateboarding game for the current generation of consoles. It's like $9 on eBay and I can't bring myself to buy it.

I paid something similar for THPS HD. It's not bad and certainly isn't going to be as much of an abortion as THPS5 was / is.

Tony Hawk's Downhill Jam was a direct jab at one of our infamous slap posters: nick jedi sk8boarder. The game was created as Jedi was developing train racing by Tony sending his crony's to monitor Jedi on the mountain sides of Mornington.

That bitch Tony spoke with his lawyers on how to avoid a lawsuit from the world's number 1 sk8boarder and so they changed the title from Tony Hawk's Train Racing to Tony Hawk's Downhill Jam. The game was supposedly nearly finished and costed nearly two million to change the game from train racing to downhill racing which is why the finished product wasn't well received.

Two million to change the game? Two million is owed to Jedi? Two million thrown away? Two million woman sucks Kelly Slater's dick?

The numbers are there, Tony and Kelly must pay Jedi. This indigogo is just another one of their scams. Don't fall for it, better to send your money to slap og: Jedi.

Thanks,
