3Red Dead Redemption 2
Like most things in Rockstar’s latest opus, the snow in Red Dead Redemption 2 is pretty damn special. The game starts among the peaks in swirling blizzard conditions, and once it opens up, you’re free to go back there anytime you like.
What makes it really great, though, is how it reacts like real snow. Both you and your horse will slowly clump your way through it, and any blood (either human or animal) will stain your pristine, glistening white surroundings. Plus, you can make Arthur slip and fall on frozen lakes like he’s auditioning for The Wild West’s Funniest Home Videos – or at least a new career in silent comedy. Snow might not be the focus of Red Dead Redemption 2, but it’s still one of the best games with snow.
