Also I feel like the late 90s-mid 2ks was a killer time growing up as far as those games. Shit was a fad that came and went. Occasional games these days but not many and generally low quality from the ones farther back.
Tony Hawk probably had the best soundtrack. Wave race was cool as fuck and weird. Such a random choice for a game. Skate had the best physics/controls and forever killer playback ability.
