Thread: surf videoGames

    surf videoGames

    Anyone know the reason why there are not any video games out there on the market? with the success of skating snowboarding and bmx video games why didn’t surfing catch on? the industry is big enough.

    I’m not So big on video games myself but back in the day I used to play Transworld surf on Xbox. It was crazy fun! Plus the game was so accurate and realistic, compared to kelly slater game and tS 2 which both went more in a tony hawk direction and sucked

    it would be cool with all the new advancement in VG to have some surf ones...the game always got me pumped up to surf.

    The kelly Slater games for PS2 etc were pretty sick. He had a lot of input on the actual game and the fluid moves and tricks in it are pretty good. There are a few other ones that came out aroun 05' that are good too... Nothing "new" that i know of...

    But just FYI, the gaming industry took a HUGE hit these past two years. My brother worked for EA sports for 10 years in their gaming department and he and like 500 other employees were laid off this year. Now he took a job down in Alabama. He just moved. But all the major gaming companies are laying off on really new development. They are only dumping money into the proven games. The shooters and everything else.

    So, im thinking in a few years from now, they will start developing more stuff again, but you should see a big drop going forward still... IMO.

    true i remember hearing how the gaming industry only focusing on franchise games because they sell and lock in custermer and fans, hence the lack of originality in games

    Oh and i found this awhile ago.


    Possibly a new surfing game.
    surf.transworld.net
    Here's the article.

    We get a lot of requests to make another surfing video game like the one we made years ago cleverly called “TransWorld SURF”. And it appears that now, Tony Hawk feels the same way about bringing surfing back to the vidiots. I liked our game and always felt that a game that meshed ours with “Kelly Slater: Pro Surfer” would be a hit. Anyway, we’ll keep you posted on the efforts…
    As reported on kotaku.com
    In an interview with GameSpot, skating legend and video game staple Tony Hawk has spoken fondly, and none-too-subtly, of his wishes to see another Kelly Slater’s Pro Surfer game. Using the Tony Hawk: Ride controller, of course.
    Chatting about what comes next for the expensive peripheral, Hawk says “I think that the first priority, beyond skateboarding, would be snowboarding because that would lend itself [to the board] a little bit easier [than other genres], and beyond that I’d love to do a surfing game. I always thought that Kelly Slater’s [Pro Surfer] was an underrated title for the PlayStation 2. I thought that people didn’t really give it the attention it deserved.”

    Ive thought about this countless of times. I played the **** out of transworld surf, and would love if a surfing game came out for 360 with controls just like skate, where each individual stick controls the surfers ankles/leg. paddling would be the triggers. This would definitely help me a little with flat spells.
