Tony Hawk Got Bad When It Got Big

Polygon: "The first few Tony Hawk games were nearly a religion in my neighborhood growing up, and that level of worship was made possible due to their design and welcoming nature. Here is your board, there is your playground and this is the stopwatch. Now go do something amazing.

Capturing that feeling, that open door, isn't just possible. It's necessary if the series is going to be relevant again."

The story is too old to be commented.

Yearly releases didn't do it any justice either

WAit you had a psx? Were you living in Japan? Didn't think they released it outside of Japan. Oh wait you are referring to the playsTation 1? Then call it ps1! Sony made a psx it is not the ps1

People were calling the slim PS1 the PSX for years before that japan exclusive monstrosity released.

it is annoying that people are still calling the original ps psx. i mean that adding an extra letter or syllable to ps.

however you didnt really need to catch him out like that and you dont have to live in japan to get a psx. i do agree that we should stop it with the psx though, it was a prototype name.


no one ever called the slim PSone psx, we always called that. PSone. we called the original ps psx because of the codenames it had before. just because we been calling it wrong all these years doesnt mean that we should carry on calling it that.

well, i remember my local gaming magazine called playstation by psx, in 1999 and playstation 2 as psy at its release (i remember it clearly as 1999 was my first time owning a gaming console)

Where i live, everyone i knew called the slim PS1 the PSX. They used both PSX and PSOne interchangably. The original model was just called Playstation or PS.

It was actually best played on Dreamcast. It had the best graphics and also the movies.

Movies? Color me intrigued.

I much preferred the Dreamcast version, 1 + 2 were my favorites in the series.

ive only played 1&2 and wasnt good at it at all.

im guessing that it had to do with level design. as games evolved through the generations, level designs took a more realistic approach.

It got bad when it got Activisioned. Which basically means being run into the ground.
