Top 5 Frozen Levels in Video Games

"This year has been unseasonably warm, at least in America. The temperature’s barely dipped past 50* where I live, and beyond a few snow storms, the north has had pretty warm weather itself. Here are five wintery levels that might cool you down and help you pretend global warming isn’t a thing." (3DS, GameCube, Mega Man, PC, PS3, Star Wars Episode I: Racer, Super Mario 64, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess, Wii, Wii U, Xbox 360)

Oh, they included Mario 64's Cool Cool Mountain, good job!

Nobody deserved how good that game was http://www.youtube.com/watc...

I was hoping to see Phendrana Drifts from Metroid Prime. Loved specially its music. Classic.

There is something about frozen levels that I like so much. Can't put it exactly in words but it's like no platformer or adventure game would be complete without one. Been like that since the old NES games(except Hudson's Adventure Island, for example, which is set on a tropical island, even though I can't remember well, correct me if I'm wrong but maybe it even has a frozen level in one of its games) In any case it's something that we instinctively love to see for some reason.

I love the ice locations of Wrath of the Lich King. So damn good. Metroid Prime, MGS1, Uncharted 2 and many more have brilliant snow levels. Snow levels are actually my fave to play through because they are snow aesthetically pleasing. I hope one is included with Dark Souls 2.

Oh and Journey was amazeballs :-)

Northrend is still a beautiful place to visit. Uncharted took snow to a new level, but nobody seems to appreciate how awesome the snow level was at the end of MGS4. I know i'll get some shit for this, but MW2 campaign had some nice snow levels.

Sonic 3 Ice Cap Zone. To this day I still play that level countless times.

Shadow Moses off MGS should be on there

Metroid Prime, Uncharted 2, and Halo 1&3 also have fantastic snow levels. Also that ice/fire galaxy in SMG1 is incredible.
