Some good 3-D skateboarding games are the "Tony Hawk's Pro Skater" series and the "Skate" series. The two series have been well received by both critics and audiences, as of 2015.
"Tony Hawk's Pro Skater" was released in 1999 for the Sony PlayStation, and its success spawned numerous sequels and spin-offs, including the "Tony Hawk's Underground" series. The "Pro Skater" series features absurd tricks and stunts, with a focus on humor and exciting game play.
"Skate" was released for the Xbox 360 and Sony PlayStation 3 in 2007, and was followed by two sequels: "Skate 2" in 2009, and "Skate 3" in 2010. The "Skate" series places a greater emphasis on realism, with fewer absurd tricks, and greater detail on the nuances and challenges of skateboarding.
