To all our fellow northern hemisphere people: it's winter. Sucks, doesn't it?

There's no escaping this most miserable of seasons. Unless you have plans to hibernate for a couple of months, or to pick up some cheap flights for a spot of winter sun.

As the rest of us bunker down for the inevitable cold snap, it helps to relocate your mind to a sunnier place. There are plenty of books and movies that will help you do that, of course. But games can help too.

There are a bunch of portable games out there that can help warm your soul even as your fingers and toes turn blue.

Whether you're a Switch, iOS or Android gamer, here are a bunch of games to help you shake the winter blues.
