6. Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 2
Don't lie. You know you cried out of frustration at least once when you could score big combos with the manual, only to find out you would bail nearly half the tricks anyway because you couldn't balance very well. Despite that frustration, you were still happy that you could design your own skateparks and skater for the first time. We know you secretly used cheat codes at Skate heaven to get big air to land triple digit tricks into the burning volcano. Not only that, but this game came at the cusp of when skateboarding was the next big thing; so everyone was buying Thrasher magazine and trying to score some new Etnies. It was also cool to see the franchise level out the pro roster with Steve Caballero, Rodney Mullen and Eric Kosten.
