Skateboarding Totally Eats It as a Genre

Whether or not the Skate series is better than Tony Hawk now or in the past is up for debate.

What isn't up for debate is the fact that Skate doesn't sell nearly as well as the original Tony Hawk games did. We all know how Activision has treated the Hawk-ster (don't call him that, only I get to call him that). Things aren't looking good for all us skateboarding posers who call the tricks by their specific button combinations.

Dude, you totally stuck that left + Square button to Triangle button!

John Riccitello, EA's current head honcho, simply told Stephen Totilo that skateboarding is no longer the leader in action sports gaming.

When it comes to action sports, I think that's going to be an an ongoing exciting genre. But at least for the level of excitement out there, skateboarding seems to have run its course as the representative example in that broader genre.

I have to admit, I like the Skate games, but ultimately skateboarding-at-large is not everything it used to be.
