The original Tony Hawk's Pro Skater arrived on the scene and did the impossible. Not only did it bring skateboarding to the videogame masses, but it also did so with such proficiency that it immediately became the industry standard—a standard as yet unmatched by its competitors.

To watch any of the skateboarding commercials these days, you'd think that skateboarding was as illegal and immoral as highway drag racing.
