Beyond the addictive gameplay, Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 + 2’s best feature is its custom park creator tool, which has inspired some great fan-made levels. Skramblez put his world-building skills to the test with a skatepark that looks just like Peach’s Castle from Super Mario 64 – with a few extra rails, ramps, and pools.
Awesome Tony Hawk
One of the most iconic locations in Tony Hawk Pro Skater is the warehouse. We’ve played the level many times ourselves. Now watch the game’s namesake take on a real-world replica of the warehouse, as the 52-year-old skateboarder continues to prove that age is no barrier to his innate talent. The BTS video is worth a watch too.
The skateboarding video games that started it all are getting an ultra-high-def remaster for today’s gaming systems. The bundle of Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 and 2 will offer up to 4K graphics on PS4, Xbox One, and PC. Apparently they were able to preserve most of the awesome original soundtrack as well. Drops 9.4.2020.
Famed pro skateboarder Tony Hawk talks about his sources of inspiration, then performs 50 of the tricks he either created or perfected over the course of his illustrious career. Our joints ache just watching this. Keep closed captions on for trick names and years.
The Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater series introduced skateboarding, its music and its lifestyle to a mainstream audience. Former THPS producer Ralph D’Amato is working on a documentary about the series’ origins, featuring interviews with Tony, Rodney Mullen and more.
YouTuber Mike Boyd wanted to make good use of his newfound popularity, so he’s dedicating all of the ad revenue from this video to charity. Tony Hawk also bet him an autographed skateboard if he can consistently pull off a heelflip. You’re a good man, Mike Boyd.
