Although it was Activision's Tony Hawk franchise that blazed the trail for skateboarding video games, EA has jumped in with a quality title of their own. In fact, everyone seems to have super-high expectations for Skate 2, which is scheduled to hit store shelves later next month. We'll be looking for plenty of authenticity here, but when we examine this gameplay trailer, we can't help but think of "Back to the Future." Seriously, who didn't want to do this when they watched the movie?! Boardin' fans everywhere are anxiously anticipating the most fully realized skating experience yet, and we're hoping that EA won't disappoint. Watch out, Tony Hawk!
