    I know this maybe a dumb question to ask but did you guys at all foresee the success of Trials HD or are you as gob smacked as most of us?

    No, that is a good question, I mean all of this after half a year? That's quick progress for this game, or any game really! Good job RedLynx

    Once I lost a whole night of sleep due to this game I was pretty sure they'd pick up a few awards.

    Congrats guys!

    i'm actually surprised they didn't pick up more for it. i don't get truly addicted to many games. over the last few years i've been addicted to Guitar Hero 2 (and subsequent rhythm games, but not quiiiite as much), Gears Of War 1, and now this.

    i'm 33 now and been playing since Commodore 64 days (i had a C16 as well lol!). this game is a defo top 5 of all time for me.

    You're such a young kid... Well... I guess it's on top 5 for me too, at least in time spent on the game 'm counting my time on Trials 2SE too).

    So, I guess you tested THIS game on C64 then?

    sure did mate! i used to love that game. made loads of stupid tracks with just tons of ski jumps and buses on.

    i used to watch the kickstart program that was on the telly at the time as well. it was basically a bunch of 13 year old kids falling off trials bikes and the commentator laughing at them. the good old days. it wouldn't be allowed now

    The amount of time I spent on Trials 2 was almost embarrassing. I had no doubt that this game was going to be a hit. Besides the fact that the physics and game mechanics are awesome, what really got me was how approachable the RedLynx staff was.

    For those that remember.....learning the "Jorma bounce" on the original Inferno was awesome....theres not too many games out there where you can actually say that you were proud to have accomplished leaning how to perform an in-game action.

    Agreed, way too much time in Trials2, Now with THD, i don't have much time to sleep... Redlynx, you've taken over my life, and deserve every medal you got given.

    PLAPS, you deserve one too for being such a long term fan..

    Keep it up!
