1080º and avalanch are my favourites, snow surfers a close second. Really don't like SSX, irritating announcer, crappy artwork, too much weaving, poor course design, naff music, it seems to be popular though. I miss snowboarding games, a pity the genre died a death.

Sounds like an EA Sports game to me

My favourite is probably SSX Tricky, I think they nailed that one totally, even though I preferred one or two of the original's versions of tracks - the city one for example. I just thought the additions to the gameplay in Tricky were just perfect.

Very close second is Amped 3, its very fun to play with scope for serious scoring, and the presentation style was absolutely bonkers, like it was gently poking fun at the snowboarder culture. Also loved this because I was pretty good at it - one of only two #1 in the world leaderboard positions (along with my brief Golden Axe XBLA rule)... Admittedly it was only on one challenge out of loads, but shut up.

SSX3 for me. The game pretty much had it all and I still play it these days.

1080 Snowboarding was ace, sequel was a bit pants.
Amped was ace, sequel was a bit pants.
SSX was a bit pants, sequel was a bit pants, SSX 3 was ace.
Sean White's has been pants for ever and always will be.
Just in my opinion. I prefer the ones that feel and look like real snowboarding.

Amazingly I was first in the world on Golden Axe XBLA for 1 week only!

another thumbs up for SSX3 from me. I remember enjoying Cool Boarders when it was first released but I picked it up a few months ago and it felt more 'wooden' than I remembered. I liked Snow Surfers on the Dreamcast too.

I really enjoyed SSX 3 - it had a load of really good levels and tricks galore. Definitely the best true snowboarding game. Though I loved Snowboard Kids back on the N64, though that was more 'Mario Kart with snowboards'.

In agreement with SSX3 - MILES better than Tricky (which is far too easy), and better than most games in general.

The three-peak challenge is a killer.

The original Amped was excellent. Couldn't stand the silly 'plots' and 'whacky characters' and narrow runs of any of the others.

SSX Tricky was amazing and keep meaning to pick up the newest installment.
Shaun Palmers on PS2 was cool but its basically Tony Hawks.
I remember going on a French Exchange and destroying the kids scores on 1080 on his N64 :D

Never a fan of Amped or Shaun White and never played Dark Summit or Coolboarders. I was told that Stoked is pretty cool on 360 :?
