    Not sure if a good thing or a bad thing. I remember the Tony Hawk games, those were some real fun games back in the days on the Nintendo 64. I wonder what this will entitle (Maybe some new ones or something of the likes?).

    No doubt about it. They were really fun! I feel like this is gonna turn out to be like DICE and EA. A great company will be ruined.

    Too bad Infinity Ward lost all of their talent after MW2.
