Two variables that determine a snow type are temperature and moisture. Snow has 5 general types: graupel, plates, needles, columns, and dendrites. Winter-themed video games offered us exploration in the outdoors, without falling a victim from the daring temperatures. SSX 3, Skyrim, Burnout 3: Takedown, Batman: Arkham Origins, and Mario and Sonic at the Olympic Winter Games, have winter-based themes. Even Rockstar Games’ Bully has a winter-theme and you know there is already rumors about a Bully 2.

 

Rockstar Games’ introduced snow in Red Dead Online and Grand Theft Auto lacks a snow feature. How about Visual Concepts (the developers of the WWE 2K series) allow there to be a snow feature? In fact, include a rain feature in the WWE 2K series as well, because it is not fair that the Madden NFL series has some of the best weather features in sports video games. 5 of the best winter-themed video games in 2021 are?
