** Some fans point to as early as Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 4 beginning the downward trend in quality, citing its ObviousBeta status and it being an inferior follow up to the much loved third entry.

** A few even point to 3 as the start of the series' downfall, saying that the introduction of the Revert made the game way too easy (never mind that its use is ''entirely'' optional).

** In ''[=THUG=]'', certain hidden double-tap grinds like darkslides reset your balance to the center. In certain levels, like Moscow, you can keep grinding circles around the level forever.
** Also in ''[=THUG=]'', walking. If your balance was weakening or you feared that you were going to bail at a fall, you can simply get off your board to avoid a bail. No matter how high the skater is or where the skater stands, his or her legs will be perfectly fine.

* BrokenBase: It's debated when the series truly began its epic fall from grace which came to an end in the wake of the disastrous RIDE and [[FranchiseKiller franchise killing]] SHRED.

** ''Pro Skater 5'' has been getting this even before release. First is the fact it's being made by the already controversial Robomodo (the company that made ''RIDE'' and ''SHRED'', and if ''Pro Skater HD'' didn't redeem the company in someone's eyes then that gets added in too), as Neversoft has been shut down (it should be noted that Robomodo has been consulting with former Neversoft devs on how to ensure the game has the right "feel" to it). Second, most of the levels shown off in early footage appear to be remasters or combinations of levels from ''Pro Skater 1'' and ''2'' (such as a level that combines the warehouse from 1 and the hanger from 2). A nice nostalgic throwback, or a cheap attempt to use nostalgia to lure in older fans? Third, the use of elements like fire and electricity to spice up moves and complete objectives. A nice small addition that doesn't harm the core skating gameplay, or a bad gimmick that reeks of something more suited for ''Underground''?

** Few can forget the intro to "96 Quite Bitter Beings" by CKY from THPS3.

** Manuals in ''[=THAW=]'', literally letting you get your multiplier into the 50's, by randomly mashing a couple of the buttons. Gets worse when your manual skill gets high, because it becomes STUPIDLY easy to balance.

** The Slam mechanic in ''THPS 5'', which allows you to immediately slam onto the ground if you're in the air. This was designed to be a combo ender, but for whatever reason [[WhatAnIdiot the mechanic was assigned to the same button as grinding]].

** ''Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 5'' infamously went down as the glitchiest game in the series and the internet showed off just how broken it gets. The fact that the day one patch is bigger than '''the game itself''' (7.7 GB compared to the game's 4.6 GB) tarnished its reputation overnight.
