    skate.

    Game » consists of 6 releases. Released Sep 14, 2007

    Skate is probably the most frustrating game I've ever played.

    It all started last week when I was bored and decided to dip into my unplayed/unfinished list of games. 
    I thought Skate would be a fine choice, little did I know that this would be a real test of my patience and sanity. 
     
    Now let me just say, Skate is not a terrible game, it's just really frustrating. 
    I can't tell you how many times I've lost a challenge simply because some random skater decided he wanted to grind the same rail I was grinding, AT THE SAME TIME!
    I'm currently finishing up the Thrasher mag challenges and I have one more X-games challenge left. So far, It's been a rollercoaster ride of anger and fist-pumping. 
    ( the fist pumping is for when I NAIL THE TRICK DUUUUUUUDE.) 
     
    Am I the only one with these feelings for this game?

    Yep, totally agree. Skate 2 lessens the frustration a bit but it's still rage inducing at times. I haven't played Skate 3 yet but I hear it pretty much cures the issue.

    @Milkman:
    Yeah, I played the Skate 2 demo yesterday and I think it feels a lot better.

    The first Skate was fuckin annoying at times, all the people on the streets messing up your tricks. Fucking people man, shit!
     
    It was fun though.

    I got a slight since of anger from some challenges in the Skate 2 demo and figured it wasn't for me (I couldn't stand the camera angle and didn't care to find out if there was a different one as well) but the Skate 3 demo really impressed me and I had an amazing time with it, I definitely want to pick up the third one.

    I went back to this game this weekend and am pulling my hair out.  The place is populated with so many clueless pedestrians and vehicles, not to mention the worst idea ever: no skate zones.  Whoever thought it would be a good idea to have people run up and push you off of your board in a skateboarding game needs to have a lobotomy.
