    Jet Set Radio is one of the first skating sports games available back in 2000. Pull tricks, tag walls/vehicles, avoid the police and learn new moves.

    Conclusion:
    Jet Set Radio crashed every time I launched it from Steam because it was automatically launching the setup.exe which didn't work. Something to do with Dotnet 35. I was unable to get the setup to run at all. But Jet Set Radio launches on its own just fine, as long as Steam is already running. Have fun playing with the keyboard or a controller.

    To play in full-screen, just disable the Wine virtual desktop
