Skate 3: The Final Nail In Tony Hawk’s Coffin

Gaming Union writes, "Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater is one of gaming’s largest franchises, but in the last couple versions the series has been slipping in terms of quality.

Then in 2007, EA introduced Skate, the closest thing Tony Hawk had to a direct competitor in some time. Skate, however, brought a much stronger game to the table. Rather than pressing buttons to do a trick, the player had to coordinate the two sticks on their controller to perform the stunt. The story was also very "back to basics", meaning no "skate ranch" in the middle of LA, no driving vehicles, just skating. Another things Skate did over Tony Hawk was to allow players to upload videos of themselves onto EA's servers to share recorded video between them. A challenger had approached."
