Neversoft Never Got a Chance to Shine

Neversoft got a bum rap. They were connected with two of the most popular series of their time, Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater and Guitar Hero, pumping out game after game for series with feverous followings. But that assembly line of skating and music games earned them disapproval from gamers that condemned the lack of improvements and changes to the series’ respective formulas. (Industry, Neversoft Entertainment)

I think had they kept the Tony Hawk series progressing as a yearly franchise without the addition of the stupid CKY stuff, it would still be alive today and well-respected.

Yup, I loved the Tony Hawk series, the original came out when I was 12 and as the series progressively got towards the jackass/stupid stupid, the older I got, I less amusing I found it.

never got a chance to shine? imo they sure as hell where shining from THPS1 to THUG. from then on its started getting a bit gritty, which i kinda did like but overall the games just weren't as good past THUG. i think my last one was THAW
