before the era of yearly sports games releases, extreme games would provide the entire monster energy fan base the opportunity to do the sickest aerials like their favorite athletic ginger. it’s hard to pinpoint whether these games were most common on nintendo 64, gamecube, original xbox, or playstation, but they surely flooded the shelves of game stores all around the world in the early 2000s.

those days are now over, though, and game libraries of this genre now only consist of your average joe sports. even the xbox 360 and playstation 3 had a noticeable decrease in adrenaline-pumping and pop punk-thumping games. if you like baseball, football, or soccer, i hope you’re happy.

games shown most frequently are 1080 avalanche, aggressive inline, skate 3, nba, and tony hawk pro skater 3
