Snow is falling in Montana this morning, bringing to mind images of cozy things, like blankets, hot soup, and the time I 100%-ed Shadow Complex during winter break two years ago while watching Outlaw Star. This seems as good a time as any to reference a list I did for VG Tribune (though not as good as when it was originally published!). It’s a list of ten gaming winter wonderlands, some of the most soothing and thematically pleasing areas in gaming, especially when wrapped in the aforementioned blankets. Enjoy!
