What Happened to Extreme Sports Games?

395 ratings | 9143 views
Back in the early 2000s, extreme sports games were being released constantly by major publishers. Today, those games are extremely rare to find and one does come around it doesn't get a whole lot of attention. What happened?

On A Roll is a new rollerblading game you can buy on steam. although it's still not complete. it's new and doesn't really compare to previous rollerblading games. Also Aggressive Inline was a flop! The game ROLLING on PS2 and Xbox was the better one.

I am disliking because you said they tried their best to make thps5 a good game, that’s a false statement,

The most popular game in the industry rite now and has been since skate 3 came out is called micro transactions. I'm sure they did a study and found that most people who play these games wouldn't want to ride blank board trucks wheels clothes and have to pay for each little upgrade that used to be free in previous titles.

Personally id say Steep is more like Amped than SSX. Other than the first game, SSX was all about non-realism and wacky cartooney tricks and characters. Amped was focused on realism.

prior to THPS there were a couple skateboarding games such as 720 and Street Skater

An SSX game came out in 2012, actually a very underated and fun game.

Hi men! Love your videos!. I was playing thps3 on ps2 and try messing around the debug mode, where you can explore levels beyond borders and i found some interesting things on Tokyo level ( realy long train bridge with long trains) also on "Suburbia" and "skater island" some mysterious black cubes and "airport" have unfinished same level in mirror look, just below the real level. I just wondering if you are aware off this and maybe would like to make a video about debug mode secrets?

I honestly played Skate 3, I like it but at the same time, it makes me miss the old Arcade styles of controls from the old tony hawk games. Great video once again ice.
Grey God (6 months ago)
I think what happened to extreme sports games is what happened to the racing genre. Arcade style gameplay had its run but eventually realism was more sought after. However the Skate franchise's launch sales figures on all three games weren't good enough to prove that to EA. Hopefully Session is able to spark something over at EA in the future or maybe even something with the Birdman himself and we could have a whole turning point for the extreme sports genre.

Ea doesn‘t look at the skate franchise anymore. They just count for the battlefield and fifa franchise. Activison just count for the call of duty franchise. That‘s make me really sad
Scruggs (6 months ago)
At least Tony Hawk said he would be interested in doing a new game, but I don't think it would be from the same publishers or developers as Pro Skater 5. He should find a new studio to create something similar to the old games, but fresh and actually enjoyable. I remember playing all the Tony Hawk games as a kid non-stop.

You said ssx hasn’t had a new game since 2005, but there was a new ssx game that came out in 2011
haha (6 months ago)
Well what happened to video games in general? Most games that come out today are just sequels or remakes to already established video game franchises
Lavender Llama (6 months ago)
just like Hollywood! it's disappointing
Master Knife (6 months ago)
haha Yeah and most of them are extremely overpriced and only come with like half of the actual game. At least the Japanese don't use microtransactions in video games

If there were quality extreme sports games with solid responsive gameplay and decent levels, more people would pick them up and play. The extreme sport game attempts that have come out in the last 5-10 years have been terrible and deserve a lack of support. Game developers need to stop thinking that being different is the key. Being fun is the key. Focus on gameplay, levels, and an overall enjoyable experience first, then focus on the microtransactions and fitting in new trendy stuff once a great game is complete.

On a Roll! Play On a Roll! It's a blading game, aggressive inline. It's out on PC and it's supposed to come out on console this year.

American Wasteland was the last great Tony hawk game, Tony hawk's project 8 was the last good Tony hawk game, Tony hawk's proving ground was the last okay Tony hawk game. I don't know how a team can just progressively make their series worse. Robomodo couldn't even make proper animations and physics on a game series that had already been good. Skate 2 was amazing and skate 3 was okay but a disappointment. I'm really hoping session actually achieves their goal of making a great Skateboarding game. This current Gen is almost over and we haven't gotten a decent Skateboarding game

"We're not trying to do Skate 4" could also be a legal disclaimer. Also, welcome back!
Icebears4ever (6 months ago)
Highly doubt that, they're simply trying to make their own game.

The most hours I spent on Skate 3 were creating parks. Loved recreating real life spots and wished they had basic themes so that all of our levels didn't look the same every time. Skate 4 (or a Skate-like game) featuring Tony Hawk + expanded level editing so that the players build onto game continuously (best designs chosen by the developer for the final game) would be my ideal approach. Skateboarding is a creative sport and I found the games that gave the most freedom were the most enjoyable. This idea would not required every player to create levels; Some would create, some would just skate. Might save the publisher some investment money too. PS - add surfing as as a side gameplay element.

Definitely look out for bmx streets, hasn't been a good bmx game since dave mirra 2. Basically the skate version of bmx games
baseballlover312 (6 months ago)
Awesome analysis. I miss the games, but you're right. I don't think they can really capture a new audience at this point while still appeasing the old fan base, and neither market is big enough by itself to justify more games.

holy shit you’re not dead.

I might have to disagree with the conclusion of the video, If devs make a game that could win the core audience hearts, It can win the general audience heart as well, a indie/AA studio could make a game that becomes popular for a niche audience, with a budget not as big as a AAA title, so there's not as much a risk for failure, and then when the core audience gets hyped and it could start attracting more casual players "it's great, it's been a while and it's refreshing" Trying to get the attention of the lowest common denominator from the start will end up in a failure because these people are simply not interested in these, they mostly play what their friends are also playing, battle royale being the big thing right now. And I really hope that Session becomes that game that turns mainstream, it's already getting attention from the core audience, and if the final product is good, something that makes you want to share it, it might be perfect. tl;dr: people should chill with the few games we have, but comparing things is not bad, mainstream wont give a shit if there's no core audience to start.

Sad to see extreme sport games become less relevant. As a teen I can say that kids just don’t really wanna be outside as much honestly or more specifically skate

Awesome video ! it's good to hear your analysis again ! I sent you a private message on YT two month ago, try to read it, there's a big review of Tony Hawk's Underground in it, and I'll be very happy if you can give me some feedback about it. And again, Great work !

It will never come back. Late 90s and early 2000s was a perfect time for Extreme Sports Games because whole world was more edgy and Extreme Sports fit in with WWF, South Park, Jackass and other edgy things that were on TV.

It wil probably return in some dope indie way. At least I hope so :-)

You are absolutely right!!!!!!!! i used to be fan of all of those as a 15 year old
Big Sexy (6 months ago)
90s and early 2000s were truly edgy. Punk music, Skateboarding, and ECW were the best. Honestly, though, if that came back today I wouldn't be too into it.
