All gamers have personal apexes of their gaming history. For me, one of my personal favorite games of all time was Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 2 for PS1. When I first got immersed with the game, it was a culmination of both video game enjoyment and a larger burst interest in skateboarding.

As far as features, THPS2 was a HUGE leap from the first Pro Skater. The levels were bigger, there were more characters, more codes, and you could even create your own pro skater. But essentially, the aim was still to unlock all spotlight videos of the pro skater roster. Personally, I thought Steve Caballero’s was the best. It showed how versatile a skater he was (and still is) by highlighting some of his gnarliest moments from flying down massive handrails to shredding swimming pools. Plus, his video had the best song of the game's soundtrack, "No Cigar," from the pop-punk band Millencolin.
