Remember when Tony Hawk video games weren't synonymous with "wet pile of whale dung"? Neither do we, yet, amazingly, one of them is considered one of the best games of all time...despite a Papa Roach song appearing on its soundtrack. THPS 2 was a pioneer of skateboarding games, introducing Create-a-Skater, the park editor, and a number of popular tricks to perform like manuals, noseslides, and a whole gang of grinds. The game was so popular it spawned a number of ports, most recently for the Apple's iOS, and convinced Activision that Guitar Hero wasn't the only franchise they could run into the ground.
