For many, the time inside can grow tiresome, as boredom rears its equally frosty head.

Add in a few different gameplay modes and a lengthy story mode and GHL can definitely steal a few hours during a long snowy day.

Pokemon Omega Ruby (3DS): This one works best for the loner stuck in their home. Simply put, for 20 years, the tried and true gameplay has satisfied gamers and kept them inside on the most beautiful of days, so on a snowy one, it’s a great way to pass the time, too. With a story that'll take 25-40 hours to finish, hundreds of pocket monsters to catch and online multiplayer, it'll take you to a world that isn't covered in snow.

Fallout 4: This is another game for the loner. With an immersive story and dozens of hours of gameplay, it's perfect for the couch potato who is content on not going anywhere anytime soon. Creating an environment that you’ll care about, Fallout 4 is tough to put down.

Dragon Age: Inquisition: This game is massive, has a slew of DLC and even a multiplayer mode with an awesome atmosphere and epic story, the hours will melt away while playing. Even stuck in the house for a few days during a blizzard, you’ll just begin to scratch the surface of what the game has to offer.

Super Mario Maker: For decades, Mario has proven to be an icon in gaming and his newest game doesn't disappoint. There is too much to do in this game. The ability to create your own levels, amiibo compatibility, share them with friends and download others make it an investment of time. With no place to go, it's the perfect game to kill more than a few hours. #Video Game
