just playing tony hawk 1/2 on the kid's switch and it's fun as hell.  takes me back to wasting so much of my life playing this shit.  skate games have always been the funnest for me but curious if i missed anything.

I’m not a video game person, but nothing recent. IMO amped/2 are still best. Keep hoping for someone to make one that’s actually like skate, but it’s all been off.

best thing we’ve gotten in recent years is the Mark Mcmorris one, it has skate-like controls but still off the mark a bit. there’s a skipjack surf in the game which is pretty cool to see. I thought Steep and riders republic were pretty rough. 

SSX, Amped, and that weird X Games snowboarding for PS1 game were some of the best. Shit, Cool Boarders too

i see. dont play many games either. looks like infinite air is not available on switch (probably not powerful enough) and amped was a microsoft thing so they probably wont port it.

I have fond memories of getting a big cream cheese kringle and playing Cool Boarders until I hated myself. Sometimes with friends too.

X Games one was great for the PS1

 

it had Terje, Peter Line, Jim Ripey, Todd Richards, and Jamie Lynn 

 

the riding in it was pretty realistic compared to the other games out there

Soundtrack for it was solid too (foo fighters pennywise nofx etc)

The best I’ve found is simply titled:

‘the snowboard game’.

But the new ‘shredders’ game coming in February looks pretty awesome. It’s basically a continuation of ‘the snowboard game’.

I played the steeps beta and it was solid but unremarkable.   

The one I played the most was ssx tricky on xbox 360 .  My gf and I played that for hours after a few edibles.
