The event was a massive success! The original target of £100 (we're all small streamers) was thrashed immediately, so we upped it to £200, then £300, then £500. The current amount is £1052.99

It turns out he's got no willy.

So who has the hands-on opinions for THPS? I'm still feeling weary about the franchise, stemming from the THPS5 debacle so i don't want to throw my cash down just yet, but I trust most (okay, some) of the voices on this board. I'm really wanting it to be great but I also realise that it's modern gaming and has every chance to be sabotaged and shite.

Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 1+2 is fantastic. 

I'd recommend treating yourself to THPS.

I don't know, what the fuck is is? Can we put a moratorium on abbreviations if you haven't said what it stands for in the first sentence, to help out thickos like me? This isn't the Transformers thread. 

I mean, THPS is a very common online abbreviation for Tony Hawk games, but if this were real life I'd definitely be referring to it as "Skatey skate ska-punk".

Cheers! Saturday night is sorted then. Phat air.

It definitely takes some getting used to.

I'd use the d-pad if I was on PlayStation but I'm using an Xbox controller with my PC so its nubby little stick - which I find too small anyway - is still better than its negligible d-pad. 

I'm pretty much used to it now, but I did find that I was only busting tricks in the four main directions quite a lot. 

My only minor gripe is that they included the revert - which wasn't introduced until 3 - but didn't really tool up the classic maps enough to make vert skating that useful. 

But virtually everything else about it feels fantastic. I'm doing what I done in the old days, just booting up a map to free skate and then realising I've been hypnotically doing lines around it for the better part of an hour. I feel like getting a bit of green to round out the nostalgia.

There's a setting that limits the moves to THPS 1 or 2 moves, so you can play it in a much more old school fashion. Otherwise it's pretty much the engine from 4.
