All of the Tony Hawk games are great but, for reasons unknown, Pro Skater 2 seems to be the franchise's touchstone title. Maybe its release just coincided with that time in our lives when, after watching enough Rocket Power or Nick GAS, we all thought we could be pro skateboarders. It also helps that the game is fun as hell too. Trade-off on the controller while going head-to-head with your friends to see who can rack up the most combos.
