Winter is Coming - Games with Snow?

Every year, I find myself wanting to dig-in to games that have areas/levels that resemble real life seasons. So, with Winter around the corner, I've been trying to think of good games to play with snow in them. I'm already playing a few, and thinking about grabbing a couple more. Even though I'm partial to RPGs, I'd love to hear your favorite games with snow! Maybe we can all help each other find a new game to enjoy this Winter.

iOS:
Dragon Quest VIII
Saturday Morning RPG
Final Fantasy VI
Simpsons Tapped Out
Batman Arkham Origins (Mobile)
1112 Episode 3
Puzzle Agent (1 & 2)
Max Payne
LEGO: Lord of the Rings
New Star Soccer
PSF 2014
Pocket RPG
Banner Saga (I haven't picked it up yet because I can't fit it on my phone, and my iPad can't run it.)

Console/Computer:
Indigo Prophecy
Batman Arkham Origins

-Year Walk
-Terraria
-Costume Quest (expansion:Grubbins on ice)
-Pixel People

Not very snowy,but i find The Room moody enough to play in both autumn and winter.

Some beavers are hiding, some beavers are invisible, some are moving and some are just plain elusive and then there are the 'Beavers in Disguise'.

Oh yeah, Terraria and Junk Jack X have snow. And I just finished Costume Quest and deleted it. Play through every year. And, yeah, I loved Year Walk when it came out. Might be time for another play through! Thanks.

Oh yeah, also playing a little Nimian Legends: Brightridge. There's a little snow in that one too.

Roller Polar is nothing but snow. It's a simple game but very fun.

Crystal Siege has a lot of snow

You also have frozen towers, which can be thawed out by your fire spells.
