The Tony Hawk series is one of my favourites and personally I can't wait to get Proving Ground BUT there is a big problem with the series now day's and that is "It doesn't have the vibe that it used to have", mainly the older games had so much flair and such because of the awesome "punk" music, the games weren't all about some wannabe poser kid trying to skate much like real life BUT it was all about what skate boarding was back then!
And that was a "punkish" kinda thing, hell I used to skate and I was really good at it BUT!!! I quit because Bam made it the popular thing to do and then everyone started to do it, I mean half the skaters I know don't skate because they like it but they skate because they want to be Bam!!!
It annoys the hell outta me, anyways back to Tony Hawk games, the first 4 games had extremely good music! I mean what's so hard about creating an in game playlist thats like the first 4 games, I don't mean the same songs but songs by the same band and such...it's really a good idea it really is:D
They need to create one that has the level's of Tony Hawk 4(free roaming but there are levels!!!), the gameplay of lets say...Tony Hawk Underground 2 and the music of the first 4 games! BANG you have just created a Game that everyone will be proud to play!!!
