Pixelitis Picks: Videogame winter wonderlands

"The year is coming to an end and for most of us at Pixelitis, that means snow. Lots of it.

Despite the amount of time we spend glued to our computer and/or TV screens, we’re not kids anymore, and that means our feelings regarding winter have changed. Snow is no longer for playing but rather for shoveling. It rarely means a day off and instead represents a hectic commute. Thankfully, we can still feel the same childhood joy at the sight of snow in our favorite games. The falling flakes and slippery surfaces make for some great locales and are perfect for destroying friends and enemies alike.

There’s also an interesting clash between the serenity of a snowy landscape and the inevitable carnage that occurs on it. Who would’ve thought we could fix all those terrible water levels by simply lowering the temperature?

So to get everyone in the mood for the chilly weather, here’s a list of our favorite chilly levels." - Pixelitis Staff (Banjo-Kazooie, Final Fantasy VII, Mario Kart 64, Mega Man X Wii U, PC, PS3, Retro, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, Wii, Wii U, Xbox 360)
