Call me a sucker for celebrity, but I thought Shaun White Snowboarding was going to be awesome. The world's best snowboarder was working in "close collaboration" with the development team, attempting to make a serious snowboarding game that moved the sport away from the typical arcade-style games like SSX and Cool Boarders. Who better to create a snowboarding game then the man who helped popularize the sport and give it credibility? Sitting there in June, I could see myself in 2013 happily playing Shaun White Snowboarding 5. And who knows, I might be playing that in 2013. I hope I am. But in the meantime, I'm stuck with Shaun White Snowboarding and I'm not sure I want to play it all that much anymore".
