FEATURED VOXPOP oblivion437 Update: I was unfortunately not aware of Shamus Young's severe criticism of Fallout 3 available here to link in the original piece and I regret that.  It dovetails rather nicely with what I've written and it's much better executed than my piece.  I strongly recommend anyone...

DAILY MANIFESTO

Tony Hawk Has 'Relevance and Tremendous Appeal', Says Activision CEO

Posted on Wednesday, December 8 @ 12:34:54 Eastern by


At this point, bashing Activision for Tony Hawk is boring. Tony Hawk Shred only sold 3,000 units in its debut week... and well... I don't feel like beating something that's already down.

All I have left is pity and sadness, wading through an almost forgotten sea of memories filled with ollies, grinds on helicopter blades, and S-K-A-T-E letters. It's the kind of alphabet soup that warms the soul.

Activision Publishing CEO Eric Hirshberg says that Tony Hawk Shred is a "a great gift", that Tony Hawk the person has "relevance and tremendous appeal", and that the franchise needs to "make some smart moves in terms of innovation to see if we can recapture people's imaginations".

Yes, if there's any franchise that needs a reboot, it's this one. No story, no motion-control skateboard, no gimmick. Just one large, detailed open-world city with floating collectibles, skate competitions, and sick lines waiting to be found. If there needs to be a story, make it about a retired skateboarding veteran who wants to get back out there and show the new kids how it's done... I think I've got just the man for the job.
