Best Snowboarding Game?

Post by ZeroCipher » Mon Oct 29, 2012 5:28 pm

I have just been having a discussion with a few friends over skype and we got on to the topic of games as we normally do but it got on to Snowboarding games (one of my mates recently got back from a snow sports holiday)

My vote went with 1080 Snowboarding on the N64, just seemed to have a good mix of arcade and realism. just wondered if anyone was partial to this game or some of the others?

I'm sure someone will say FFVII!

Tbg as soon as I saw the title I thought '1080' on the 64. Tbh I 'm not the greatesst fan of these type of games, but I did get some pleasure from that one.

The only one I have ever played much is Val D'Isere on the Jaguar which is pretty good, never really been that into snowboarding though to bother with it.

it's easily the ssx games for me,i actually prefer the first game over tricky as it just feels more pure.i have played 1080 and it is a good game but no-where near as good as ssx for me.

Never played too many snowboarding games tbh, but i will say that the original Coolboarders on the PS1 really got me hooked for a good while. Dark Summit on the GC is one that i occassionally spend some time with too. The SSX games i never really got on with, as i prefer out and out racing to all the tricking tomfoolery.

SSX is probably the only snowboarding game I have sat down and really played, was brilliant fun and probably one of the best PS2 launch titles along with Timesplitters.

1080 on the N64 but I'm beginning to realise that I post the same things on the same threads, maybe I should try some different ones out (I did play that Shaun White game on the PS3 and thought it was terrible though).

SSX Tricky is the best I've played by some distance. Furlongs better than its successors.

You've just reminded me why I wanted a Wii Balance Board in the first place!

Got one, then didn't get a snowboarding game for ages and its one of the later Shaun White's. Probably poo without the board, it does add something

Amped 3 on the 360 is the best I've played.

I thought the first Amped was pretty good. Shaun Palmers on the PS2 is a good shout too. Admittedly i never got very far on either one though.

A big part of me wants to say Snowboard Kids on the N64 ("Mario Kart On Ice!", as the magazine advert said)...but SSX Tricky is simply one of the best games of all time, let alone in the genre.

In no particular order:

Steep Slope Sliders (saturn)
Snow Surfers (DC)
Amped 2 (xbox)
1080 Avalanche (NGC)
