lol wow i completely forgot BMX existed. I had some Dave Mirra game I forgot which system, was pretty cool.

But yea i'd like to see a next-gen BMX game. Hopefully as good as Skate.

i ride all the time, but bmx goes into hibernation every few years and becomes underground. then pops back out and becomes mainstream again for a short time. right now its in a recession. At least its not a fad like skaters.

Basically there was a dispute with Dave Mirra over that crappy BMX XXX game () he didn't want it to be released and it sucked hard) and so they're no longer making the good Tony Hawk inspired ones (Dave Mirra Freestyle BMX).

i think the people who did skate should make the same game, just with bikes instead of boards

No idea about that but Dave Mirra didn't want his name on that game because it sucked and had some stupid XXX material like strippers or something I can't remember since it was awhle ago. The two Dave Mirra Freestyle BMX games were basically Tony Hawks Pro Skaters with bikes but I liked them.

Do kids even ride bikes anymore? I remember BMXing with friends. Back when you rode to a friends house rang his door bell, had to say hi to his parents, lied about going to this place because it was close, but rode everywhere in your city.

because the average gamer is 37 years old and would break a hip if he ever fell off a bmx bike and at this point in his life thinks as much about bmxing as he thinks about how cool teddy ruxpin is.

How young do you have to be to think that 37 is old enough to warrant breaking hips jokes?

Someday, you won't be a teenager.

Because the sport isn't as popular as it was 10 years ago, there is a new Tony Hawk coming though and probably a new Skate.
