Skate 2 was far and away the best in my opinion. The ability to get off the board changed the game so much and the physics were the bomb. And the ultimate in any video game ever made....Fun track...so much fun to just chill out with the boys bumping music and just ripping fun track. That level, and spot battle should be on every game, dont know why they took it out of skate 3.
Online shit ruined video games for me, split screen multiplayer defined my childhood and fun track gave the same sort of feel where you can actually get stoked with someone right beside you. Now everyone just sits at home alone talking on headphones.
