Then one day, just fired it up, sat down, and completed it in 9mins 54 secs, flawless, never even lost a life. I sort of sat there fo...

It would have to be me AND my mate, after WEEKS of practice on Tony Hawks 3, thinking we were Gods, passing the pad to his 11 yr old son (who we later discovered also owned the game) and then feeling the colour drain from our faces as he hammered our scores into the ground about 8 times over, discov...
