The first and third were pretty fun, although I never enjoyed Pro Skater's emphasis on absurd combos and eternal grinds. I've returned to Thrasher far more over the years.

Same. Still do a playthrough of 2 every now and then.

THPS3 is the best game in the series bar none
>>
>>6123045
For me, it's a tie between 2, 3 and 4. Peak of the franchise for sure.
>>
THPS 1, 2, 3, and Underground are great games. And they're cheap too because they're mis-classified as sports games.
>>
>>6123068
why does everyone love to leave out one game?
How can you think 1, 2, and 3 are great, then 4 is not great but then Underground it got great again.
>>
>>6123073
the way that the story mode is set up in 4 is different and I don't like it
I made a conscious choice to skip #4 at the time and was going to be done with the series, but they lured me back in for one last game with THUG. After that I remember seeing project 8 and knowing that the series was more or less done for.
>>
tfw a skate park in a THPS game irl gone for over ten years now. Sad just like the fate of THPS games.
>>
>>6123079
If you were able to deal with THUG's story you'll have no problem with 4. I'd say definitely worth checking out if just for the maps alone.
>>
>>6123082
which one? I heard even stuff like El Toro has been replaced IRL
>>
>>6123095
I bought it for $3 and tried it and hated it just like I knew I would. Then I traded it for SSX tricky which I have no intention of ever playing.

I always thought licensed soundtracks are overrated.
You're essentially paying for a lazy "various artist" CD with all pre-existing tracks, not even new takes. If I'm going to play the game listening to MTV music, might as well choose my own music to listen to while I play.

Cringe 2: Hypercringe.
>>
>>6123386
I can only speak for myself but I was a young kid when these games came out, I didn't know shit about music or how to discover it. It was a different time back then too, you couldn't just go on youtube and listen to any song you want in 3 seconds.
>>
>>6123394
What's cringe about >>6123386?
I'm not shitting on the game, I'm talking about listening to pre-existing MTV music is redundant and might as well play whatever music I prefer instead.
>>
>>6123395
Fair enough. I just think, if I play this game today, why would I want to listen to its licensed soundtrack? That's my point.
Not attacking anyone's particular taste btw. If the bands featured on the soundtrack happen to be ones you like a lot enough to listen to while you play the game, good for you. But I always think the "original" part of the OST is important.
>>
>>6123401
>if I play this game today, why would I want to listen to its licensed soundtrack?
I'm with you on that one, and eventually you get sick of hearing the same songs. These days I mostly play with music off altogether, and just enjoy the atmosphere of the sound effects.
>>
>>6123401
>>6123407
Holy fucking cringe, batman. The THPS2 soundtrack is lit af. If you can't appreciate it you should probably just stop breathing or go play something else. The soundtrack is the fucking atmosphere of the game. And it's not like these songs have been played to death unless you've done it yourself.
>>
>>6123425

>>6123425
>nooo you can't have a different music taste than min! this game redefines my music taste!

>>
I'd imagine the soundtrack is so well loved because of Napster being at it's height when 1 and 2 were out. A lot of people went on to discover an entire catalog of new music from randomly downloading other tracks from those groups.
>>
>>6123431
He's right though, you can't disassociate the game with the soundtrack.

Epicly meme-arrowed. You sure showed everyone how clever you are.
>>
>>6123576
You're just mad someone insults your pleb taste.
You can turn off the music and leave the sound effects in the game if you want, making you able to play whatever music you want.

AND I DON'T CAAAARE WHERE I GREW UP NO MOOOOOOOORE
>>
>>6123583
Based. Nothing like some ITAOTS or Swans while doing sick combos.

The sountrack represented the skate scene of the time. That's the type of music actual skaters were listening to, so they put it in the game.
>>
>>6122539
I KNOW I'VE PLAYED THIS GAME BEFORE WHEN PEOPLE WERE STILL REAL

4 feels like a transitional game. It just doesn't feel as great as the others, but it's surely a great game and much better than say project 8 and everthing that came after.

I like the 3rd one the best I think. Probably because I played it the most growing up. I also really enjoy doing speedruns of THPS1 since the game can easily be 100% completed in less than 20 minutes. Tony hawk 2 annoys me because collecting all the cash can be frustrating. Tony hawk 4 is pretty fun but not as good as the games before it or the game after it. Underground is perfect. American wasteland is a blast. Underground 2 pisses me off because it feels more like a jackass game than tony hawk, still great tho. Project 8 was the last playable one in my opinion. I did not like proving ground when it came out and tony hawk ride made me cry. This is a pic of some of my tony hawk games, I have more for playstations and Xbox. Honestly my favorite game series.
>>
>>6123806
Tony hawk 3 was still in the classic tony hawk style of gameplay and it pretty much perfected the style for the the 6th gen of gaming, it has a nice range of great levels and the best secret characters of any of the games. Tony hawk 4 was the transition to the underground games, as it introduced the free roaming instead of the classic 2 minute timed runs, they didnt perfect this new style of game until underground. 4 definitely feels more like a transition imho.
>>
>>6123106
Yeah It's not as good as the six gen versions obviously, but still a great example of a classic tony hawk game. And the book end to the N64 library of games in the US. Really pushed the n64 to its limits.
>>
>>6123830
Nah, I don't agree. 3 has the same goal structure as 1 and 2, but the actual gameplay is what I consider transitional. It introduced the revert and put a greater emphasis on flatland tricks, both of which were improved and expanded upon with later titles. 4 to me perfected the standard THPS gameplay without adding the off-the-board gimmicks of Underground and later.
>>
I loved playing these multiplayer. Horse and the score attack things were tons of fun. I wasn't really a fan of when they allowed you to keep your combo going anywhere with that wheelie thing though.
I would love some sort of remake that included everything from the first three or four games and tons of options to customize things to your liking. Even if it was possible for them to get all the licenses and everything. I'm sure they would totally mess it up somehow though.
>>
dreamcast tony hawk 2 is best tony hawk 2. no need for as remaster.
>>
>>6124745
Personally I don't like the reworked graphics and lighting of the DC version. PC version with mods to unlock the FPS is the way to go.
>>
>>6123101
Ssx Tricky is a lot of fun, you should play it.
>>
>>6122539
back when THPS2 came out, a friend and I would pretend we were grabbing footage for a sponsor video. we would take turns doing tricks off stuff. we would continue to do this until THPS4 before the series tried to change for the worst.
>>
Yes. Spent countless hours in THPS2 trying to discover all the gaps, didnt even consider it was possible to look them up on the internet. Then one day my memory pack died and I lost everything, never played it again after that.

THUG2 is the peak, don't even at me nostalgiafags. Don't give a shit about your hatred hard-on for Ham either. Those complaints just show your priorities are in the wrong place when it has an arcade mode brimming with content and controls that aren't archaic bullshit.

THUG1 however is bottom-barrel trash.

Yes absolutely. My nostalgic favourite is Thps2, but my favourite game is THUG. Spent a lot of time fucking around in the level editor and just skating in general. Found lots of cool glitches and bugs too.

Fucking awesome games, especially the PS2 ones. So much of my childhood was spent playing the whole series. As a child, the later games felt like a humorous GTA, with shittons of easter eggs and quirky little details. The PS1 games are amazing gameplay-wise, it feels so great busting out combos and hitting a tough gap.

>>6122539
I played the shit out of THPS2 as a kid, and I loved it. But the PS2 games were far superior.
>>
>>6123073
The levels in 4 are great as always but the story mode sucks my balls
>>
>>6128098
Different game. THPS2 on DC is classic formula. The loading times were taxing back in the day, with an SD mod now loading times are non existent. Get an adapter and check it. Widescreen hacks are going on too, they have got it about half way between 4:3 and 16:9, needs some render fixes. It'll eventually happen.
>>
>>6128098

And the graphics are beige and muddy, and the motion blur is crap. The levels all together though are nice but too many changes and slight differences. The graphics on the DC are vivid sharp and great..

Series was good until American Wasteland. Then it went to pieces.

>As the licensing deal between Tony Hawk and Activision was set to expire by the end of 2015, the game was hastily developed within a few months and released unfinished. Upon release, the game was a critical and commercial failure, and was panned heavily by critics, with criticism centering on its graphics, bugs and glitches, controls, and lack of design.

>>6128871
Don't get me wrong, I love Thps2. Some of the best tony hawk levels and being able to play as spiderman is awesome, but as far ass sitting down and playing the career mode and beating it 100%, I'd rather play 1, 3, or underground. Tony hawk 4 annoyingly brought the floating cash back.

Yes but the ripoff that is the ssx series basically made it obsolete.

It’s laughable how a PS4 game can be 100 times worse than the original PS1 game from the same franchise. THPS5 might be the worst PS4 game ever. If you buy the disc version, you don’t actually get a full game. You have to download a 8gb update to experience the game you paid for.

Can confirm. With the HDMI mod it smoothens jaggies and looks even better. THPS1 has complete widescreen working, THPS2 as you say is half done.

Also agree with some here, after the first 2 it was saturated with features. The best tony hawkers definitely.

The animosity of not accepting the dreamcast as a relevant console at all is huge. Like even MK4, the gold edition had 5 more damn characters and most faithful to the graphics and even in MK circles people dont really accept it. Its okay, sometimes a console you didnt have growing up and love has your favorite games in the best version. Youll be ok.

I'll always love the Tony Hawk series, especially THUG, but I had a blast playing THUG2 when it came out.

By the way, how does the PSP version fare? I've read that it's decent, but I'm hoping to hear from some anons here.

Seeing this thread has renewed my interest in picking up the PSP remake since it's quite cheap

In my opinion the original Underground was the best one. Underground 2's story mode was too Jackass-y for my tastes but it's still a good game. American Wasteland is pretty good as well, even if adding BMX was kind of useless.

2 was great, but 3 was better. Without reverts you simply couldn't make insane combos like you could in latter games, you had to rely a lot more on grinding.

I was with it from 2 (N64 and GBA) all the way to American Wasteland. Then Project 8 happened, I rented the PS2 version and was not really impressed, and while sure I played the shitty version of it, playing Proving Grounds just said to me that the series was burnt out at that point. Would I want a good classic THPS game? Sure, I don't even need walking or the super crazy shit of later games. But the Activision of today is basically the real Satan incarnate and Hawk's career is retired now while skating is basically dead, so fat chance of that.

For someone like me that jumped from the playstation to the Xbox it was a nice version to own

The only franchise I can legit say I'm skilled at. I 100%ed the mobile port of 2 using the touchscreen buttons.

Whats the best version of THPS 2 and 3?
>>
>>6144257
>2
dreamcast if you like its graphics, PC if you don't. 2X is neat in itself but not quite the same game.
>3
haven't played it as much but i assume the PC version is the best. none of the 6th gen console versions stick out as looking or running worse so it probably doesn't matter which you play.

Yeah, they're pretty good.

Play fucking thugpro. Thug2 Mod with a shit ton of levels ported in, glitch tech from previous games ported in, older trick animations ported in, custom soundtracks, custom levels, I really don’t know why there’s no mention of it in this thread. There’s a decent sized community around still but I would love more people from the Chan’s to play with.The skill cieling on this series is insane once you go beyond just 50-50ing to kickflipping over and over, it’s the only game I play anymore. Also thug1 was the best mechanically, thaw is my personal favorite but shit like wallplant cooldown and lack of offboard drift control really destroyed high level play. Please play thugpro.

I think that's why 1 and 2 are better. They're not about insane combos. The stages and score models are designed around cool spots to trick on, rather than long lines.

Looks cool but personally I prefer to play the original levels in their original game engines.

>question
second stick = camera control and clicking it in THUG2 onward triggered bullet time (or nail the trick AKA "we want skate's audience" in THP8 & THPG).

L1 & R1 = one of them changed your footing from what i remember and in THUG onward pressing both got you on & off your board while pressing one of them off your board rotated the camera.

it's been a lifetime since i played tony hawk games on a playstation.

>Seems like 4, UG, UG2 has a lot of love on this thread
the underground games are pretty much where the franchise peaked.

THAW was okay but you can tell that they ran out of ideas on where to go with the series.

proving grounds was fairly decent as the last tony hawk game by neversoft but they pretty much gutted most of the features (story & multiplayer are the only modes) tried to be like skate.

THPSHD was a step in the right direction after the board games but it was pretty barebones and there was no create a character.

>>6146634
ill play it when they add the missing THPS2 levels

>>6147034
Probably won’t be coming for a while officially, thaw levels are next on the plate for the thugpro devs as I gather. That being said there are versions available already as custom levels.

Understandable, the online metagame is really the draw for this. Wallplanting and walking in Alcatraz is a pretty surreal experience though.
>>
>>6147606
What is the online metagame/community like? As in what gamemodes and stuff does it revolve around?

>All this shitting on 4 and Underground
I swear you guys don't know what an actual bad game is. I replay the whole original 1-UG2 set almost yearly and I can't say a bad thing about any one of those games. I can't speak for the ones past those though.

That’s a semi big question as the community is somewhat segregated by interest. Your average lobby full of entry level/casual players though is usually going to be a thug1 manhattan lobby cycling through trick attack, free skate, graffiti, koth, and sometimes weirder stuff like firefight or scavenger hunt. There’s also an underrated appeal in just chilling in a free skate lobby and chatting about bullshit and hanging out, so you’ll see that between games a fair bit. Most in these sorts of entry level/beginner lobbies play for score but usually the best player can’t get beyond something like 10 million points. You’ll see a lot of 50-50 to impossible spammed over and over skating predictable level lines and speed manuals used again and again and needless to say it can pretty tiresome to watch post zero if someone is doing that for several minutes. On the other hand though with the game type variety and amount of levels thugpro offers (not to mention the augmented create-park functionalities) means that these lobbies can be a hell of a lot of fun to play in.

Most of the high level players that have been playing since the release of the online titles totally eschew score as it has become a sort of outmoded and mindnumbing to pursue. Dedicated players playing purely for score (known as whoring) are so good at holding combos that a single combo will often go for over 15+ minutes, clear out the rest of the lobby because it’s so boring to spectate, and the score has to be calculated externally as the point engine wraps into negatives after a certain number, as I recall around 2 billion something. It’s a bit of a dying art and the few keeping it alive are mostly polish/Russian. Here’s a random example: https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=6A2kwAAhrrQ

Pt.2
Most advanced players play in a style called improv which is basically just playing for style to look cool and trying to play in as non-linear a fashion as possible. There’s an obscene amount of difficult and stylish glitch tech you can pull off in the thps engine that the base game has no way to objectively measure in terms of a point value (spinouts, buttslaps, wallride bounces, teleporting in combo, getting huge glitch air off walls, midair manuals, etc). It’s pretty autistic but it’s also a lot of fun, and I suppose more in the ethos of actual skateboarding rather than chasing arbitrary point values. Most into this aspect of the game spend their time making videos or doing transfers as the skill ceiling is basically endless. I’ve found it to be more rewarding a pursuit than any other game I’ve played. Here’s an example of somebody that’s highly recognized as a thps god that I really love to watch play.

There are lots of other good videos on that channel but some are better than others.

There’s also a good number of modders, mappers, and custom park creators in the community creating content for the games that keeps things fresh between major mod updates which seems to be around once to twice a year these days.

Sorry for the text dump, I just like to be comprehensive since it’s something i’m very passionate about. There’s a few other disparate tribes but those are the main ones. Please let me know if you have any questions.

>Like even MK4, the gold edition had 5 more damn characters and most faithful to the graphics and even in MK circles people dont really accept it
Isn't that because the gold edition was rushed and had tons of bugs?

Project 8 was pretty fun when I replayed it recently.
Plus they called back to the first Pro Skater by having another Primus song in the soundtrack.

Ya it was but they released an updated version, you could trade in the copy you bought for it. Its a different color and stuff. They fixed almost everything, i think a couple of small bugs still exist. The Pal version is native speed to the arcade, but the US release is like 20% faster. I like it.
