There’s no way to check, but if I had to guess, I’d say I’ve put far more time into the first four Tony Hawk’s Pro Skaters than I have with any other series of games. Many nights of my childhood were spent sneaking onto the family computer to beat THPS3 for the hundredth time, played on mute so I could hear if my parents were coming downstairs.
They’re important games to me, and I think they hold up better than most. Still, I pine for a worthy new entry in the series. Until that day, I have Crayola Scoot, the Splatoon-looking kids game from Climax Studios.
I do my best to make my case in the video above, and if it gets you interested, the game releases on PC, Xbox One, PS4, and Switch on October 16th!
