Gotta cheat a bit.

I love the Arkham games, and I really love the snowy, Christmas Eve setting of Arkham Origins.

It's become a tradition for me to play it through every December.

Definitely the music...

Had no idea (until now) that it was based on an old '80s song! - No wonder why I liked it so much!

That is nice tradition. I never really thought of doing that.

Love the sinister Carol of the Bells rendition in the game, that's essentially Joker's theme music.

Super Mario 64 - Not sure which level I like best, but each one has a "warm", festive atmosphere.

C&C: Tiberian Sun - Various winter night levels: Like the way the (red) lampposts shine in the snow.

Mechwarrior 2 - Planet Dawn: Being a cold planet, your mech dissipates heat more efficiently, allowing you to push it further than anywhere else.

Warcraft II: Tides of Darkness - The human castles always look bigger (and more complex) and the Goblin Alchemist building has Christmas lights!

Goldeneye 007 - The one where you're walking towards the satellite dish: I like the dark, red sky and music.

I'm sure there's some I've forgotten along the way.

I'm gonna cheat a little and put Elysium Alps from SSX. Basically the the longest track in the game (6.3km), and it leaves me an impression.

As a legitimate snow level outside snowboarding games, it has to be one from Serious Sam: The Second Encounter where it had JINGLE BELLS as one of the themes where you slaughter hordes of monsters along the way. Plus, Santa is in there.


Time to bust a move and get it started. Time's wastin'.

Gonna be honest here I like the level design about Ice Cap Zone. Fair and balanced, and rewarding if you get it right.

Music is awesome too

Banjo Kazooie Freezeezy Peak. I love the music in that level, it just fits perfectly.

Skyrim... all levels of Skyrim (except underground levels)

Ice Paradise Zone in Sonic Advance 2 just because the music is extremely nostalgic to me.

Also Cool, cool Mountain in Super Mario 64.

Always loved the sled levels in the third Donkey Kong Country title!

Pretty much all of Dead Rising 4. Frank west rings in the Holiday Season by going back to Willamette and brutalizing zombies with Christmas Cheer.

blizzard buffalo's stage from Megaman X 3. The music and ambiance are desolate and depressing like winter.

Ice Cavern

The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time


After beating the Fire Temple by fighting a MUTHAFUCKIN DRAGON! Next stop is Zora's Domain, which is encased in ice. Not only that, but going to Lake Hylia before this and seeing it dried up and claw marks on a tree is unsettling. Then to Zora's Fountain to see Lord Jabu Jabu. He's not there. He... died? Okay. Well exploring Zora's Fountain there is a cave that you couldn't get to as a child, but now can as an adult. Upon entering it you are greeted with some haunting, but beautiful music and the text Ice Cavern appears on the screen.


Going through this dungeon was a bit odd. It made me wonder why it is here. What is its purpose. What was it before it froze over? As I journeyed through, I came across a White Wolfos in one of the most beautiful rooms in the entire game. Upon defeating it, I obtain the Iron Boots, and Sheik appears to teach one of the best and eargasmic songs in the game, the Serenade of Water. Which is also a great warp song to, because it takes you straight to Lake Hylia.


This precursor to the Water Temple was incredible and I loved it! Which is funny because in video games, the ice level or ice world is usually the one I hate. This is one of my favorite dungeons in the game though.

Just off the top of my head, I'm really nostalgic for Chill Penguin's stage in MMX.

Rollercoaster Tycoon ice maps are so pleasing to look at.

Metal Gear Solid has the Sniper Wolf fight set in a snowed over forest where you need to do a sniper duel (or spamming Nakita missiles) in the middle of a blizzard.

Phendrana Drifts from Metroid Prime. It has an immersive atmosphere and the music had a very arctic and delaying tone.

The snow stages in Yoshis Island. Great aesthetic and so much interaction with the element. Snowy ground felt like actual snow thanks to more resitant physics and sound design, snow fell from trees when you brushed against them and snowballs grew in size as you rolled them around.
