Most people associate sports-based video games with stuff like Madden or MLB. But for me, the SSX series reigned supreme. Snowboarding games are relatively few and far between, but SSX made its mark in the best way. Gamers in the early 2000s will fondly remember doing Olympic-level jumps and insane board tricks, all set against a gorgeously rendered snow-capped mountain. They’ll also remember the amazing soundtracks, culminating with SSX 3. The great blend of rock, techno, and metal made even the easiest bunny hills into epic jam sessions.

Good gaming, good music.
