Growing up a spent a lot of time playing Aggressive Inline on the Gamecube.

Also, I enjoyed playing MX Unleashed.

The "Skate" games were pretty good too. I never put time into the Tony Hawk stuff unfortunately.

That's tough to narrow down if we can include the super arcadey stuff. I'm just going to have to make a list:

  • Tony Hawk 4
  • Blitz 2001
  • SSX 3
  • 1080 Avalanche (This gets overlooked for coming out the same year as SSX 3)
  • NBA Street 2
  • Virtua Tennis

I miss the extreme sports genre. Midway, Neversoft, and EA Big made up a good chunk of my Gen 6 game collection.

I always liked the Fight Night games, kicking ass as Roberto Duran and Joe Frazier.

The only sports games I liked were the WWE games when I was fourteen years old. I played hours of WWE 2007. But nowdaws I don't play any sports game.

NFL, NCAA Football, FIFA World Cup games. Sometimes, I also like golf and NHL games.

I only play them at gatherings. So, I rarely buy them because I know my relatives already have them at their place.

Fight Night Round 3 was the best 1 v 1 game to play if you was into boxing. Madden 03 - 08 and WWE smackdown. Good times.

Racing games are my bread and butter but I also like the NHL series from EA.

ESPN also did a very good hockey game back on the DC.

Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 4 would be my favorite. I would have picked Aggressive Inline or Dave Mira Pro BMX 2, but the only stage I liked in both games were present in the demos they included on the XBOX magazine demo discs. Heck, the Dave Mira demo on disc 04 (with DoA's Hitomi on the cover) actually controlled better than the final game did.
