    Default Games with high mountains?

    I brought this up in two other topics then decided it deserved one of its own.

    Ever since the coming of 3D gaming, one thing I wanted was a game where at least one area was a tall mountain. Like one where you could take hours to reach the top, and then look down at the world and marvel at how everything is so tiny from up here. Then jump off and feel the thrill of air rushing past you (yeah I'm kinda weird like that).

    Also like I said in the JRPGs topic I feel mountains--and tall structures in general--are underutilized as settings since, you know, they could have cave structures or innards that lead back out into walkways that spiral up (think Darm Tower from Ancient Land of Ys, but if it were in a 3D space and continuous as far as system limitations allow).

    So anyway, what games do you guys know that have very tall heights? And among those, what are your favorites?

    My husband often scales ridiculously tall and steep mountains in Skyrim just for the heck of it, usually while still on horseback, no less.

    Super Mario Galaxy has that one very memorable mountain covered with purple coins.

    And Getting Over It With Bennett Foddy comes to mind, though I'm not much inclined to try it. It is "aimed towards 'a certain kind of person, to hurt them.'"

    For "jumping from high places", there's AaAaAA!!! - A Reckless Disregard for Gravity and its sequel.

    And there's https://store.steampowered.com/app/313340/Mountain/ , but that's a different kind of high mountain.

    I think I remember Mystical Ninja for N64 having some kind of mountain you had to climb. Obviously you take what you can get with N64 graphics, but I'm pretty sure it was in there.

    Let's you do exactly what the OP wants to do, particularly when you climb Mount Doom... *cough* erm... Death Mountain
