Its been a while since I did one of these posts and I figured now was a good time to write the next entry. This time, we are taking a look at the games released in 2003 that I loved. Let’s take a look!
I have to admit that looking at the games released in 2003, in the UK, I realised that this was going to be tough. You see, there weren’t that many games released that year that I’ve actually played and most of I wouldn’t say were exceptional or were special to me. I guess I was till playing Final Fantasy X a lot…
Still, I could find one game that I remember playing that I loved, Tony Hawk’s Underground. I suspect long time readers a bit surprised. RPGs are definitely my favourite type of game and are what I play a lot of today but back in the early 2000’s, I was into platformers and skating games.
Underground wasn’t my first Tony Hawk skating gaming, in fact the first one was Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater. However Underground is definitely my favourite in the series. The story of skater trying to make a name for themselves may sound cliche, but the plot has some silly moments, including a scene involving a tank in Russia. The fact that Underground doesn’t take itself seriously adds to the appeal.
I did get to play Underground 2 a few years later but after that I haven’t really played any skating games since then.Since hearing other peoples’ thoughts on the later Tony Hawk’s games, I think I left the series at the right point.
So, that was 2003! Unfortunately, this was a bit of a short post, but there wasn’t many options to write about. What games have you played that were released in 2003? Let me know in the comments below.
Rest assured that next time, when I talk about games released in 2004, there will be a few more games I can talk about, see you then!
