Winter is my favorite season. I love the bone-biting chill of an icy morning, the numerous blankets I get to pile on my bed, and the glittery confetti-like snow that makes even the cemetery next door look cheerful.
Also, Winter has the best clothes.
When it’s cold outside I love curling up with tea and an RPG. Not any game will do, however. Only a few have that true cold-weather vibe.
The best are Dragon Quest IV and Final Fantasy V. I played both of these during the coldest, darkest days of the year and they resonate years afterward. Shin Megami Tensei games and Western RPGs strike me as more summer/fall activities. You want something moving a slow yet determined pace when shielding yourself from the cold.
This winter I have absorbed myself in Dragon Quest IX and it is completely worth it.
