Gamers love to hate on EA, but the fact is that they do manage to publish some great games. Skate has changed the way skateboarding games should be designed and played. Hopefully this is a wake up call to Tony Hawk developer Neversoft to be more creative and less complacent. In fact, everyone on Xbox Live playing Skate seem to have no intention of going back to the Tony Hawk franchise. Whether that happens remains to be seen, but going back to Tony Hawk will be a hard pill to swallow for most gamers.
