Title
Greatest Skate Game
I remember getting this game on launch day, and it probably changed my life not only for the actual gameplay but for the soundtrack, due to it I discovered music that I probably wouldn't of at the age of 10 such as Joy Division, Animal Collective and Pixies and because of this Skate 3 will always hold a special place in my heart.

Title
Probably my favorite skateboarding game that I have played. This is a game that is very important to me because I put probably thousands of hours into it in the early 2010s. Pretty awesome game with awesome tricks. Games like Skate 3 will never die out because of the infinite number of possibilities it provides like different areas to do tricks at and so on. Another reason this game was very important to me was because of its god tier soundtrack. They picked such a wide variety of artists and bands which is awesome and they all fit the whole skater vibe of the game. This game is responsible for introducing me to a lot of great music like the Pixies, Dinosaur Jr, Joy Division, The Thermals, Neil Diamond, and MF DOOM for example. Such a great game and is pretty close to perfect. Only complaint is that sometimes the challenges do not spell themselves out completely so you will have to pause your game in the middle of a challenge to Google "How to do [insert trick] in Skate 3." Other than that it is awesome and very worth your time.

9/10

Average rating is a bit baffling, no? This is vastly inferior to 1 and 2. Stale color palette, awful map design, grinds (especially blunt slides) feel shoddy, toned down hall of meat system, repulsive art direction, and simply not enough new tricks and gear to compensate for all the ways this game downgrades the franchise. Not to mention the whole "build a team" thing in career mode is a total waste of time. I understand people are hungry for skating games nowadays but this about as bottom of the barrel you can get before THPS5.

Title
Which is more important: gameplay or level design? The answer is level design, and that is why the majority considers Skate 3 to be the worst Skate game.
Skate 3 improves upon the core Skate gameplay, and, in a vacuum, it feels better than ever. Unfortunately, a skating game is useless if there's nothing good to skate on. Skate 3's new open world, Port Carverton, is far and away worse than Skate 2's San Vanelona, which was already far worse than Skate 1's version of San Vanelona.

Skate 3 is still better in some areas than Skate 2. Skate 3 removes the no-skate zones from the previous two games and the frustration they caused. Skate 3 fixes the godawful walking from Skate 2, and doesn't require you to push objects to complete objectives. Either way, I'd still rather play Skate 1 than either 2 or 3.

    Lets get this above a 4.00, this is a bonafide classic title at this point and stands higher than the rest of the series (even though I have deep nostalgia for Skate 2 gameplay).
