Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 5
It had been eight years since the last entry in the series, and fans were dying to see more of the Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater franchise. Back in the day, the series was easily the best and most popular set of skateboarding games ever. However, times have changed since then, with the release of the Skate series and a few disappointing Tony Hawk’s spin-offs, but if anything this just had fans wanting the Pro Skater series to make a return to form even more.
In 2015, it seemed like that wish would be granted. Pro Skater 5 was on the way, and although in development by a different studio than the previous main entries in the series, things looked promising. Sadly though, upon release, the end result was a buggy and broken mess. Physics and environmental issues were aplenty, with players getting stuck inside rails and ramps. It became increasingly obvious that this game simply wasn’t to be the return to form fans had hoped for. Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 5 is easily one of the absolute worst games in the generation.
