Tony Hawk "Very Proud" Of Tony Hawk: RideS

Tony Hawk: Ride is not only one of the most disappointing games of 2009, it's easily the most disappointing game in a series that for the past 5 years has specialised in disappointment.

But don't tell Tony Hawk that!

The skater is standing by Robomodo's game, both on the grounds that he was involved in it, and that everyone reviewing the game and thinking it's complete rubbish simply weren't willing to give it a chance.

"They were ready to discredit it before they even tried it, and if it didn't play exactly how they imagined it... then they passed it off" Hawk told the Sudbury Star.

"I don't agree with people who say the board's not responsive," he continues. "I think that they're just not giving it a fair shake. And I think a lot of them came into it with an attitude that it's going to suck."

"I know that (RIDE) is super fun, and I think there's a misconception that I just stick my name on a game," he said. "I brought this idea to Activision, and I saw it through, I've been playing it every step of the way and I am very proud of it."

Hey, least there's one satisfied customer!
