Jeff Gerstmann's Pro Skater

Jeff Gerstmann's Pro Skater: 3 - 2+

To finish THPS3 we have to get AGGRESSIVE! We got to get these goals IN LINE and knock them out.

How many benihanas can Jeff land as he plays through all the Tony Hawk games and an assortment of Tony Hawk knock-offs?

As a kid going through puberty when THPS3 came out, I was a huge fan of the Neversoft Girls....

Always wanted to play Aggressive Inline, but that would mean putting down Tony Hawk 3.

Hoping the PS5 is backwards compatible with the original discs so I can pop all these in whenever.

i still blast del unapologetically and enthusiastically

gotta get me some tony hawk/ssx equivalent soon or ima kick a flip

and ace of spades is maybe the most timelessly great rockapunkmetal motorhead songs, rip lem.motorhead, you and del and tony hawk truly was that post-'I play games-I'm still playing games-game bridge of teenage years just burned into my skull, leading to me seeing motorhead's final show many years later. Weird, but cool, rip lemmy live forever motorhead.

Give us good tricking games, 2020's.

While I enjoyed this episode, I think I might be more excited for the next one, if BMX XXX gets introduced...

Dug out my old aggressive skates and they're still in pretty good condition... I feel inspired to break 'em out in Spring and get all Jaren Grob on a park someplace.

Props to whoever came up with Bob Burnt Ends in chat, that was also where my mind went before Ben read it off, for some reason.

I might have to get out my Gamecube version of this game, I remember liking this a lot, even if Jeff wasn't as hot on it this time around.

I never played BMX XXX, kinda hope they check that out next time, I'm morbidly curious about it. Did not realize it was the same studio as Aggressive Inline.

This series and UPF alone are worth a sub to this site! Hopefully we get more frequent videos for this.

I absolutely loved Aggressive Inline, and as someone who would watch the inline events on ESPN2, the pronunciation of the names of the skaters in the game hurt.

Fantastic stream fellas!

I never played Aggressive Inline, but always heard how good it was over the last couple of years that I may have to dig out my PS2 and give it a go.

Anyone else notice that "Sell Out" by Reel Big Fish started playing precisely when Jeff was ragging on The All American Rejects for being sellouts...?

When Ben mentioned Jaren Grob being in a wheelchair, I assumed it was a permanent thing, but in the article he was reading he talks about looking forward to skating again.

I love how all the quest giver voice lines in Aggressive Inline sound like they were recorded on a tin can at the bottom of a well.

This is a good series and I really hope Jeff tracks down a copy of BMX XXX.

I've still got Hoobastank's "Crawling In The Dark" stuck in my head. I didn't even listen to them back in the day. Oddly, of all those songs listed, one of the few I think I had on CD was Boy Hits Car's "I'm A Cloud". I think I originally found it on Napster because it had a weird sounding name and title.

Like birds returning from a long winter, I love when long-form videos come back after a GOTY rest.

Speaking of birds: anyone have a Phoenix Down moment realizing why he's called "The Bird Man" and that it has less to do with him flying and more to do with his last name?

I probably spent more time playing Aggressive Inline than any of the Tony Hawk games. It's super good.

In answer to Jeff's "Sonic Boom" question, the answer is surprisingly none (at least that I could find).

It did lead me to this though:

I had entirely forgotten aggressive inline existed, but hearing that menu and the sound effects brought it back. I played wayyyyy too much of that game. For some reason I never really got into the Tony Hawk series but did play a ton of Dave Mirra BMX and Aggressive Inline.

Shoutout to Aggressive Inline for not having any female characters based on real inline skaters and having to make some up--that's some real gamedev 2002 shit
