In addition to our team-selected Game of the Year Awards 2020, individual members of the PC Gamer team each select one of their own favourite games of the year. We’ll post new personal picks, alongside the main awards, throughout the rest of the month.

I’m not much of a completionist, but I had such a blast with Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 + 2 that I was determined to 100 percent both games when they released this September. Grabbing every collectible and stat point is something that seasoned skaters can breeze through in a few hours, but having only mashed my way through a few levels when the games first released in 1999 and 2000, I had a lot to learn.

While cutting my teeth in the Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater demo a month before release, I could already feel that THPS would steal a good few evenings and weekends away from me, and I was totally fine with it. The best part about getting hooked on a game like this is that every second I spent trying to nail difficult tricks and land gaps taught me something new about the game’s mechanics.
