As gamers, we’re incredibly devoted to the hardware supporting our hobby. Consoles, graphics cards, peripherals—let’s be honest, we’re kind of obsessed.

Tony Hawk and Neversoft Talk How Pro Skater Changed Their Lives

Tony Hawk and Neversoft Talk How Pro Skater Changed Their Lives

The skateboarding industry, much like the video game industry, is a massive web of marketing, of community, and of money — all with a deep well of young men and women’s aspirations fueling it along.  They’re both massively popular industries now – the International Olympics Committee has finally acknowledged skateboarding’s cultural relevance – but it’s funny to think that, less than a decade apart, both experienced massive turmoil. The great video game crash of 1983, and the early ‘90s crackdown on street skating threatened their lifeblood.. But together, both worlds came together to make something incredible. It helped turn Tony Hawk, a once-down-on-his-luck pro skater, into a living legend, and it turned Neversoft, a humble game studio full of rowdy, young developers, into a household name among gamers. 20 years ago this August, Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater established a legacy that lives on to this day.

The summer movie season may be winding down, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t plenty of reasons to hit the multiplex in the months ahead. The next few months are a treasure trove of promising movies, from epic blockbusters like Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker and Jumanji: The Next Level to creepy horror fare like It Chapter Two and Doctor Sleep to a brand new, star-studded Martin Scorsese flick. Check out our slideshow below or scroll down for a full breakdown of what’s coming this fall and why you should care.

While the young cast of the original film will return (along with Bill Skarsgard’s Pennywise and director Andy Muschietti), the focus this time will be on A-Listers like Bill Hader, Jessica Chastain and James McAvoy.

For '90s Kids, Tony Hawk's Pro Skater Made Games Cool

For '90s Kids, Tony Hawk's Pro Skater Made Games Cool

Update: This was originally published right before Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 5 was released, and we all know how that turned out. However, on the 20th anniversary of the original Pro Skater, we thought it deserved a re-publish.  These days, gaming has entered the lexicon of ‘cool’. Expensive video game trailers set to expensive music blast onto TV screens at primetime, advertisements are splashed across buses in every major city in the world and E3 ‘press’ conferences are modeled after rock concerts. Kanye’s a gamer. Snoop’s a gamer. Mila and Aubrey are gamers. Everybody’s a gamer. Continue reading…
