Snow Day Games.

     Recently got snowed in for a day and it gave me some decent time to play catch up on some video games I haven't had time to get to.  I don't know about you all, but as much of a pain it can be to be restricted to your home when the weather gets bad a part of me kind of likes it.  A lot of the games, movies and TV shows I don't get to watch normally get watched during these times and this recent storm made me reminisce about what I've done in the past to avoid succumbing to cabin fever.

That's a car under that mound.
This first snow was no big deal, and only kept me inside for the early part of the day but I still managed to throw down on the third part of the Uncharted series, which seems to be one of the most awesome series in a game I have played.  It's like having a box set of a film series that I  look forward to watching, only this is my first run since my PS3 is only a year old so I'm just now getting into that consoles exclusive games.  But, since I live in an area where winters can be rough and have been snowed in for more than a few days one game I played for most of that time was Fallout 3: Game of the Year Edition (the same year I got it on a really good deal).  I have yet to finish that one and plan on doing it soon but I'm saving it for the next big storm.  As long as the power stays on and the internet is connected when taking a break I catch up on whole seasons of shows I just don't have time for, yesterday I started American Horror Story: Asylum on +Netflix .  I saw the whole first season there so I'd rather just watch them that way when I can.  I still have my list of games I need to catch up on and I know there are probably a couple more storms on the way that will help pass the time.  By the way I don't rely only on video games and streaming entertainment, I have plenty of board games and books should the power get knocked out.  What do you do when you're snowed in?
