Generation Tony Hawk

“Generation Tony Hawk” is a long-form piece of writing investigating how the genre-busting PlayStation game Tony Hawk shaped the UK skate scene. Involving primary research, speaking to skaters featured in the game, skaters from before the game was released, and skaters who skate because of the game, plus a review of the relevant literature, this article looks into the potential sociological impact of games, and one game specifically. Commissioned by Read Only Memory, with illustrations by Gabriele Brombin.
