SSX is the rad-est PS2 game ever, IMHO, because of the characters, the scene it creates, and ability to place your self there in that scene. Whenever anyone says that they hav no interest in video games, I always haul out SSX and even if they don't want to play, they always get into watching at some level. I've also been playing a lot of Need For Speed Underground, and I find the same to be true in many respects.

no

yep.. ssx3 has a nice vibe surrounding it, probably
the radio that does if for me (like it did in gta3)

leveling up is a fun part too.. got myself some nice
baggy pants, shades and backpack, off i go.. woosh!

There have been a lot of great games nailing the vibe lately. True Crime did a great job of making you feel cool, driving around LA in your amped-up ride and kicking some baddie's butt. Def Jam Vendetta and Street Hoops also had great crunchy backstreet vibes. Hopefully NFL Street will as well.
Tiger Woods 2004 took a different approach and has the most impressive character creation I've seen yet (even beating the Tony Hawk series), so you feel like you're in the game and cool - but the music is a bit grating if you're not used to heavy metal on the golf course aside from your putter head.
I spent a lot of time on the weekend playing Project BG&E with an audience - not very viberiffic but an intriguing concept and an engaging, varied story for non-gamer watchers.
Ah the Christmas season... happy days for gamers!

I sympathize...

I'd rather buy the cool clothes than pump my character up with attributes too. That's probably why I prefer Kaori over Zoe...

I can see it. This doesn't count as role-playing so much, but I associate Zoe so much with MJ, that when i'm playing as Moby and go through one of the races, and Zoe and Moby banter as they pass one another, it feels like it's MJ doing the bantering. Crazy.

Besides, the best stuff is earned by golding events. ;)

Why did I let my self listen to you people! Now I'm addicted to this freaking game, and finals start on Monday!

Oh, wait. I don't have finals.

Nevermind, then. And by the way, Kaori's halo is like ten bazillion times cooler than that tiara, SO THERE!

There is a very nice forum for all SSX related stuff on MerquryCity.com:

http://www.merqurycity.com/ssx_forum/index.php

Included are: master video's for all versions, which you can download, a very good FAQ, and help from the best of the best on the planet. Some very pleasant folk, and frequented by some developers and others involved in making SSX, SSX Tricky and SSX 3. Highly recommended!

For those just interested in the SSX 3 movie runs, you only need to look here:

If you're in need of money in SSX 3, and you like racing, you can download my 'Throne' movie run from there. This is by far the quickest way to make money, which I explain here:

Lots of fun!!! :-)

Oh, back in the days of SSX, and then in Tricky, we constructed a story based upon the characters. (In the original, Hiro was the badguy, Jurgen and Zoe his lieutenants. In Tricky, Zoe had been brought over to the good guys by Moby, though he'd gotten rougher because of it, and now JP was trying to.... well, do something, we supposed.) I haven't played SSX3 yet, but with the lack of global touring, or a real villanous character, that seems gone.

More's the pity.
