As I constantly lament the death of the Tony Hawk franchise (and get excited at the prospect of it coming back every chance I get), the spirit of the series still lives on through fans everywhere. Or something like that.
It definitely lives and breathes in this clip from bennyfastfeet, who posted a "totally intentional" video. The clip begins with the player showing off their sweet shredding skills, then jumping board-first into a Mountain Buck. Yes, totally intentional.
Back to Tony Hawk. Did you know that a documentary was filmed that chronicles the history of the series? The project, Pretending I’m a Superman, is still planning a general release "soon." Skater XL, a game that honors the legacy of both Tony Hawk and the Skate series while doing its own thing, is also currently in Early Access with a July release date. There's options if you still hold water for Tony Hawk like I do.
