Top Ten Skateboarding Games

The Top Ten

1 Skate.

Nothing better.

This game was the least revolutionary of the series the character development was poor at best and the story was uninspiring and it didn't make me feel like a skaterboy at all

Worst game ever found one so boring

Both Skate And Skate 2 Are Masterful - rjhype

2 Skate 2

Skate 2 the best just every thing about its good mucking around in security zones and secret spot to

skate is good but crap compared to skate 2 skate 2 should be up top the carer is the best

Played the demo. I own Skate 3 but this seems a bit more realistic with rag doll physics when you crash. And The colors are much more interesting. I plan to buy this in the near future

My god why this number 3 even such a good skateboarding game like this even being in number 3 is still makes me mad

3 Skate 3

Played it since I was a kid, super easy to get into and mechanics are solid

Great Game. Has a lot of cool features.

The flick system in the game is just amazing. Nothing else to say. This is BY FAR the best skateboarding game!

Better than skate 2 and skate 1

4 Tony Hawk's American Wasteland

Way better than phonie skate games. You can play capture the flag in thug 2, and that ALONE a better than the stupid skate franchise

I have played every game in the top, but american wasteland is the best, and also Skate 3, they are really great, one of the facts that makes me think that this game is the best is the split screen mode that is really fun

becacse its a really good game and I like it your games are the best tony hawk cool

So much memories.. This game have everything skateboards, bmx lot of tricks places clothes! Etc's

5 Tony Hawk's Underground

I know that the gameplay is no where as good as new games such as the skate franchise. But it was this game that made me want to become a skater! Doing all of the tricks was cool and made me want to be able to do them. However, it was the cut scenes and storyline that really made me want to become a skater. I completed the career mode and then soon after taught myself to ride along on a skateboard. But I thought it was too much hard work. Although around 6 months later I started playing tony hawks proving ground and I wanted to start skating really badly. So I got a skateboard and started to learn how to skate. Now I've been skating for 1 and a half years and have learned a lot of tricks and love skateboarding!

This game is awesome. I played it for about half a year and still barely got bored of it.

Favorite game not 10 and New Jersey completely open was awesome to skate around

I don't even have it

7 Tony Hawk's Proving Ground

Best skateboarding game I have ever seen its rocks!

The story line was awesome best game of tony hawk series
Graphic was brilliant but bad thing is that we cannot make a skate park like thug and thug2


One of the best games ever

Tony hawk proving ground is better than skate 1 and skate 3

8 Tony Hawk Pro Skater 3

This best number 1 games united 3

A really fun tony hawk game

By far the best in the series

9 Thrasher: Skate and Destroy

The game mechanics were odd but realistic, especially when compared to thps streetskating, where you go faster than the speed of sound within seconds.

Thrasher was definitely a ground breaking game. Very fun. I could probably pick it up and still play it today.

A Skateboarding Sim before Skate, by far the best skateboarding game on the original PlayStation

This game is not better than any of the tony hawk games but still a good game

10 Tony Hawk Pro Skater 4

The cover doesn'tlook familiar, but the best game on ps2 - roblist

This game absolutely symbolizes my childhood and is easily one of my favorite video games of all time not just for ps2 but for any game system.

I've played almost every skateboarding game that has been released on PC, and I can say that this is the best one. The second best one is TH Underground, so amazing too.

It is the best!

The Contenders

11 Tony Hawk's Underground 2

It may not be the most real skateboarding game, but THUG 2 will always hold a special spot in my heart. Some of the goals are annoying to do, but still satisfying when completed. The controls can be a bit wonky at times, but it's only when you're trying to pull off something crazy that it really gets in the way. The story is a little weird and goofy, but I feel that's a part of the charm. All in all, I'd say this is a solid 8/10

Such an innovative concept. Lacked in realism but made up for it with arcade-style fun!

This game was the craziest funnest of all of them, with all the destruction, special and guest skaters and the final level you unlock in space, Mayan temple and hell! How is this not #1.

not the most realistic but definitely the funnest and creative - arabhomie68

12 Tony Hawk's Project 8

This should be way up the top, who wants realism when you can get a kickin' free-roam sandbox game like this one, proving ground is good to, but this game is not to difficult to beat and I love everything about it!

Better than skate 3 and skate 1
