    I'm further north and have the day off - so I'm going to enjoy our 6-9" of snow...


    Top ten in order would be too messy, so I'm going to pick ten that I think would make a great snowed in grouping... in no particular order:

    1) Alternate Reality: The City (a800)
    2) Yoomp! (a800)
    3) Phantasy Star IV (gen)
    4) Landstalker (gen)
    5) Super Mario Brothers 2 (via mario all stars)
    6) Turrican (amiga)
    7) Wizkid (amiga)
    8) King of Fighters XI (ps2)
    9) Madden 10 (ps2 ... shut up)
    10) SNK v. Capcom: Cardfighters Clash (NGPC)



    ... which I'll probably hit all those tomorrow
    -AB+

    Holy crap. It's been a while.

    Isn't this just another "what's your favorite games" just with a different label.

    Anyways.

    Tactics Ogre Let Us Cling Together
    Arc the Lad 2
    Brigandine
    Wild ARMs 3
    Final Fantasy 6
    Super Castlevania 4
    Xenogears
    Tales of Eternia
    Breath of Fire 3
    Grand Theft Auto 4
    (if my internet was still working in this scenario, otherwise it'd be another game.)
    Everything in the above post is opinion unless stated otherwise.

    It's not snowing and it's not supposed to snow at all in Buffalo, supposedly the bad weather capital of the universe, but if it were Snowpocalypse 2009, I'd probably set up a new game of Civ IV with the hardest, longest settings and sit on my ass until I could leave the house.

    I'd like to see a list of games that feature people being snowed in (I don't mean anything about teh durgz though) or, failing that (most likely), games with a snow theme.

    You know, I think some N64 3D platformers have ice barriers to melt with stuff - possibly one of the Zeldas, a Banjo-Kazooie game, or Super Mario 64, maybe.

    Seeing as how I did this through the last blizzard I was snowed in for (albeit with Civ III), I'm going to have to agree. There's something about just sitting around for a good eighteen hours and just trying to plow through the French with your musketeers.

    Anything immersive would make my list. I know that right now I'm in the mood for The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, and seeing as how I am indeed stuck in a snow storm (albeit not snowed in), it's going to be what I'm playing tomorrow.

    In no particular order...

    1) Dragon's Fury (or any of the Devil Crash games).
    2) Tales of Destiny (it's on my "to play" list).
    3) Dragon Warrior III (ditto).
    4) Castlevania (FDS version, I'm determined to get better at it).
    5) Can Can Bunny Extra (PC-FX, I'm working on writing a walkthru).
    6) Zelda LttP (I've been trying to get my wife into gaming and right now she's playing this, so when I'm tired of gaming, she can take over w/ this one & I'll help).
    7) SMT: Devil Summoner (PS2, I need to play through this).
    8) Paper Mario: Thousand Year Door (currently playing, so I'll probably hit this up).
    9) Panzer Dragoon Saga (also currently playing, but I've almost beat it so I almost didn't want to list it).
    10) If all else fails... RPG Maker!!!

    Not quite, I don't think I could play my favorites all on the same day with endless hours snowed in.

    I'd probably sharpen my skills on fighting games (GG, SF2's, Marvel VS Capcom), or Have a Contra Day (Contra, Super C, Alien Wars)

    You like Comix Zone a lot, eh? It is a good game (",)

    I live in a sub-tropical region myself, so the scenario is unlikely to happen to me...

    If I were snowed in, I'd likely just install Rollercoaster Tycoon 2, and all the expansions...and just play all day and night long. Then, when I got bored, I'd build a couple rides just to see how many people I could kill...

    Since this is the retro forum, I'd fire up my PSX and play Turismo 1 or 2, along with some Colin McRae Rally 1 or 2. I'd most likely play a Squaresoft rpg as well. Actually......I'd sit and complete Soul Reaver. Been looking for an excuse to do that, since it's a game that you can get lost in if you don't play it steadily.

    Where I live, being snowed in also means being a purist of sorts. Like having an obsession with Seattle-based rock bands and being completely uninterested in anything else. So I'm basing my list on that meaning:

    1. Bomberman
    2. Contra
    3. Gran Turismo
    4. Dragon Warrior
    5. Street Fighter II
    6. Puyo Puyo
    7. Mario Kart
    8. Castlevania
    9. Micro Machines
    10. Zelda

    Or am I?
