Tony Hawk's Pro Skater Memories
With the announcement that Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 + 2 are going to be remade, I got hit with a tidal wave of nostalgia. Upon hearing the news and browsing the world of Twitter, it appeared that I wasn’t the only one.
For the Love of a Game
Growing up I always loved editing characters in video games, whether it be adding the cast of Friends to the warzone that was Worms 2 or putting myself at front centre for the Vancouver Canucks on NHL 97.
Disclaimer: Before I begin, I just want to clarify that I am in no way advocating piracy. Whilst I look back fondly on this era of my youth, there is no doubt that counterfeit gaming seriously damages the industry, especially those smaller studios and their entire workforce. This is a nostalgia piece on how piracy contributed to my love of video games and how I probably should have known better.
