MGS4 Act 4: Twin Suns (Shadow Moses). Not only for the graphics, game play and scene. But the return to Shadow Moses. Man, I got goose bumps the very first time I played this. So many memories from many years ago. This is just a small part on why this game is legend to so many including myself.

MGS 4 was THE first game I thought of. Loved seeing SMI again.

Lost in the snowy mountains in FFVII from start to epic snowboard scene was a memorable moment.

For some reason the lack of The Last of Us in this article is lame. That was by far a more thrilling time than even Uncharted.

When I replay TLOU, I do it with a nervous anticipation/fear because of winter. It was SO TENSE. Lol my heart beats out of my chest every time.

Where is Shadow Moses Island from MGS1 and MGS4 or the snow level from TLoU with the snow storm? Also I`m rather certain Silent Hill was not snowing but that it was ash.

Yes, Silent Hill was ash

I would say UC2 is at the top of that list. I remember it actually making me cold when I played it.

For me, MGS 4 is my favorite snow level. Shadow Moses, need I say more?

Second would have to be The Last of Us. I love and appreciate Winter because it's as if the devs are saying, "Oh, you're a badass? You're getting used to the game and the amount of supplies? YOU THOUGHT." They flipped me off and I friggin loved it. They weren't afraid to take you back to your roots.

Third would be Uncharted 2's level(s). Why? Don't truly know, I just had a lot of fun. That big shootout was tense.

After that, it's Killzone 3's snow level. It was really fun, and the snow was beautiful.
