* SpiritualSuccessor: SSX 2012 is very clearly inspired by the film [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Art_of_Flight Art Of Flight]] with an emphasis on the film's dangerous backcountry riding and heliboarding along with sharing a few songs in the soundtrack. There's even an ad for the film in the game case.

A series of snowboarding games by made by ElectronicArts under the EA Sports BIG banner[[note]]expect for the new ''SSX'' from 2012, which was a ContinuityReboot[[/note]]. It shares some similarities in style and mentality with the ''Tony Hawk's Pro Skater'' games, but places the action on snowboards (and on one occasion skis) and takes even more liberties in realistically portraying the actual sport in favor of a more arcade, over-the-top experience.

* ''SSX 3'' (2003): Took the basic gameplay features of ''Tricky'' and set all events on the creatively-named Big Mountain, thereby introducing a WideOpenSandbox mechanic. As a result, the track diversity suffered somewhat and the general quirkiness of ''Tricky'' was played down a notch, and its remix of the Music/RedHotChiliPeppers' "[[Music/StevieWonder Higher Ground]]" cover is pretty disappointing. However, some fans consider it to be the best game in the series.

* ''SSX Blur'' (2007): A UsefulNotes/{{Wii}}-exclusive title, the general consensus is that this game, while not bad (it still received very positive reviews), is weaker than SSX Tricky and SSX 3 due to rehashed tracks and somewhat inaccurate motion controls[[note]]which, to be fair, can be adjusted for better functionality[[/note]].
* ''SSX'' (2012): Originally called ''SSX: Deadly Descents'', an "[[DarkerAndEdgier extreme]]" ContinuityReboot of the franchise for next-gen consoles, the game plays more like a SpiritualSuccessor to ''SSX Tricky''. The World Tour mode focuses around rival teams of snowboarders competing to be the first to board on the world's most inhospitable places such as the Himalayas and Antarctica. In addition to the new Deadly Descent peaks, the game features traditional Trick and Race modes with online leaderboards and events. This was also the first ''SSX'' game not made on the (now defunct) EA Sports BIG banner. This version also became free to download on the UsefulNotes/XboxLiveArcade Marketplace from December 16-31, 2014.

* '''''SSX'' (2000):''' The first game in the series, and one of the launch games for the UsefulNotes/PlayStation2, being hailed by many critics and gamers alike as the best in the bunch. It started the series tradition of earning boost by doing tricks, thereby requiring a balanced play-style (in the races a least) and included some of the craziest track concepts ever seen in a snowboarding game, like a melting iceberg that's been towed to the Hawaiian coast, or a Tokyo course resembling a pinball machine.
* '''''SSX Tricky'' (2001):''' The second game, ''Tricky'' was arguably the high point for the series. It took its still somewhat modest predecessor and turned the craziness {{up to eleven}} by [[{{Flanderization}} Flanderizing]] the entire cast and including so-called Übertricks, in which boarders pull their board off their feet and use them in suicidal acrobatic maneuvers, ranging from breakdancing to faking an execution.
* '''''SSX 3'' (2003):''' Took the basic gameplay features of ''Tricky'' and set all events on the creatively-named Big Mountain, thereby introducing a WideOpenSandbox mechanic. As a result, the track diversity suffered somewhat and the general quirkiness of ''Tricky'' was played down a notch, and its remix of the Music/RedHotChiliPeppers' "[[Music/StevieWonder Higher Ground]]" cover is pretty disappointing. However, some fans consider it to be the best game in the series.
* '''''SSX On Tour'' (2005):''' Reduced most of the crazy cast to simple cameos and instead included a pretty restrictive Create-a-Boarder mode. Plus, the game added skiers(!) of all things, changing one of the basic concepts of the series. Also, due to an agreement with Nintendo, you can play as [[Franchise/SuperMarioBros Mario, Luigi, or Peach]]. The fanbase was not all that pleased, and it is remembered as the BlackSheep of the series.
