Tony Hawk is a legend. It’s a fact. He is one of the most well known and well liked personalities in the sport of skateboarding and for good reason. If you have ever seen an interview with him or any clip of any kind where he is interacting with a person, you will know he is a nice guy and genuinely loves what he does. That is not the problem here. Nothing about the issues facing the Tony Hawk branded games of late has anything to do with the man himself. The issue is simple. Somebody made a better game. At least, a game that people who care about skateboarding consider better.
