One of the skater stars of the first Tony Hawk's Pro Skater talks about what the game has meant to him in a new video.
Chad Muska, one of the iconic skateboarders from the Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater series, is returning for Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 + 2, and in a new video he has talked about the series’ legacy and impact on both his life and skating culture.
Muska, who was 21 when he appeared in the first game back in 1999, says that “the games influenced my life in general,” and was very important for the skateboarding industry. “To this day, people come up to me and they’re like, ‘Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater, I picked you! If it wasn’t for you I wouldn’t have started skateboarding!'”
You can watch the short video below, and compare 1999 PlayStation 1 Muska to 2020 PlayStation 4 Muska.
Muska first appeared in the original Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater, before appearing in the next five games in the series, through to Tony Hawk’s Underground 2. Activision recently released a similar video for another skater from the series’ history, Steve Caballero.
Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 + 2 releases September 4 for PS4, Xbox One, and PC. Check out our preorder guide to make sure you’re ready to roll on day one.
