not bad! A game from the "When tony hawk was still good" era

More like the END of the “When tony hawk was still good” era.

I'd argue the the last good Tony Hawk was American Wasteland

After that Skate came out and started dominating while the TH series sort of lost its identity

49. Choose a random page on TVTropes and beat something from the video game section

Prototype

This is a flawed game. That's not to say it wasn't fun, but it was rather disappointing in many ways.

The Good:
- Spider-Man 2: The Movie The Video Game. It scratched that itch of flying around Manhattan and running up the Empire State Building and looking for silly collectibles in obscure areas.
- I also like being able to ride around in a tank or a helicopter and getting a different perspective when exploring sometimes. Found so many landmark orbs from the ease of flying around kind of idly.
- It tried at a decent story. For some reason, I've got Twin Peaks: The Return on the brain when dealing with Web of Intrigue stuff. There are elements of something kind of cool.
- Whiplash grabbing helicopters and hijacking them. I spent a stupid amount of time in later missions catching helicopters instead of just throwing cars at them to destroy them and complete easy objectives.

The Meh:
- Combat is not nearly as cool as it looked in Game Informer ten years ago. Everything feels so samey and the badguys are all either easy fodder or armored tanks you shouldn't be attacking up close anyway that I barely used any of the powers in combat. And since staying in disguise is the best defense against bullet hell, why bother?
- Controls are wonky. A lot of my frustrations came from input lag, grabbing targetting, and camera discoordination.
- The story is kind of a mess. Characters appear for a few missions in cutscenes and then are never seen again. Big bad guys are confronted with little fanfare and disposed of almost as quickly. The twists just seem to be thrown in for some semblance of a story? Revelations don't feel shocking. They just feel like, 'Oh. Okay? Sure.'

The Bad:
- It's really either just the city or a big room. There's nowhere else to go. It gets very samey, and nothing you do affects anything. I spent an hour or so taking down Hives and Bases before realizing it doesn't matter because they'll respawn after you move on and take down another, and then they'll change places haphazardly every time you get a new mission.
- There's a promise of a better game early on that... it feels bad once you realize it's never gonna be more than what it is, but if you just play it like a big, 3D, open world '90s hack and slash arcade beat-em-up... it's not so bad. But that's really all it is and nothing more, and it's kind of disappointing.

26. Beat a game with revenge as a central theme
Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor

This seems like a prime candidate to have its category swapped around throughout the year.
