Best Games for a Snow Day?

Postby VideoGameCritic » March 21st, 2018, 11:16 am

Well it's the first full day of Spring and we're getting hammered with snow in Maryland. It's white-out conditions and they are calling for about a foot. It looks gorgeous outside.

Time to play some games. Any snow day game recommendations?

Ugh, I'm jealous! I love a good snow day! Here in Toronto, we haven't had a good sized snowfall in at least 8 weeks. It's funny, you would think in Canada we'd be getting hammered too, but it appears that the US NorthEast is getting the brunt of the winter.

How about Snow Brothers for the NES? Fun game, (perhaps buy the repro as the original is crazy expensive).

Tried my hand at Frostbite for the Atari 2600. Kind of like Frogger on ice. Man this game is hard!

I don’t know if you’ve warmed to RPGs much, but “I Am Setsuna” on Switch/PS4 takes place almost exclusively in snow/wintery areas. I’ve not played much, but it’s very much a traditional, somber feeling JRPG.

1080° Avalanche is always a blast.
