Gives me chillz.

How is the most beautiful and best ice track ever not mentioned...

Rise of the Tomb Raider has some great snow levels. Forza Horizon 4 during the winter season is really fun to drive around in!

God of War's crunchy snow is pretty damn satisfying to walk through and marvel at.

Horizon Zero Dawn's Frozen Wilds expansion is the best part of the game imo. It's got a similar level of detail to God of War's, although not quite as good. But the atmosphere as a whole is stronger and there's great use of colour.

Oh wait yeah I might have to change my answer to Ice Cap Zone and HZD: Frozen Wild dlc being tied. Sonic 3 has too much nostalgic love in my heart to put in 2nd hahah

There are many that I have enjoyed throughout the ages. However my favorite will always be Mario 64's Cool, Cool Mountain. First, in 1996 I was 12. Second, I had lived in a tropical Island all of my life and Snow seemed alien and wondrous to me. And 3rd, Mario 64 was the first proper 3-D game that I had played at that point.

It was a magical and endearing experience. The slide was addictive as heck and diving head first into the snow with Mario was an unforgettable experience. 

Far out, how could I forget the Tundra in Monster Hunter Tri? Like almost all the games maps it really looked and felt like a living breathing environment with so much attention to detail. Definitely up there with the very best for me.

Bet with Liquidlaser: I say PS5 and Xbox Series will sell more than 56 million combined by the end of 2023.
