No one talks about it anymore, when it used to be pretty popular and talked about. I actually enjoyed what I played of 1 and 2 and am surprised I never bought any of them, since I like SNowboarding and Skateboarding games and it is just fun to mess around in Skate.

I wonder as well. Skate 2 is one of my favorite games of all time, and I probably put more time into it than any game I have ever played. However I didn't enjoy S3 nearly as much. I've been waiting for a Skate 4 with improved graphics for years. :( Please give it to us, EA!

ea dissolved blackbox studio so skate 3 is the last release you will see from them unless another development studio takes the task on.

personally i think they released it too soon from each oter. skate 1 was awesome and mind blowing. skate 2 did good in refining the genre but the city didn't feel fresh anymore....skate 3 was meh

Agreed, and I didn't realize that about blackbox. That is too bad. I hope we so more Skate and even moreso, more SSX. I loved the new one but it did have some issues (pros outweighed the cons bigtime though).

Skate 2 was good, Skate 3 was rubbish. I still have it on my shelf untouched since release now.

Skate 3 was awesome I thought. Freeskating in the city and not having to worry about those annoying security guards and rail blockers was great. I'd love to see a 4th. Maybe next gen?

Different consoles? That could be it.
