Are there any actually GOOD snowboarding games?

I may be completely off base here, but every snowboarding video game I have played (except for 1080 Snowboarding for 64..that was the tits) is pretty shitty. I haven't played many recently so maybe I'm missing out on a good one? Let me know.

The last snowboard game I played that I enjoyed (and still enjoy) is Amped 2 on original xbox. Some parts of the game are shitty, and its not really realistic, but some of the shit you can do is cool and you can ride however you want if you learn how to do it right. Its mostly a points based game, but you can just freeride and do what you want, and I enjoy it.

Stoked! Big Air Edition for the 360. It's the best snowboarding game I have played by far. It's kind of like the Skate games, only with a snowboard instead. Did I mention it's cheap? It was released at $39.99 and I'm sure you can find it for cheaper if you look.

Oh yeah!? Well, my mom says I'm cool!

Was Amped 2 better than the first? I recently broke out the first one, its still one of my faves.

After I posted this topic I decided to read some other posts and have heard some awesome things about Stoked. I have to wait another week for my local mountain to open for the season, so im definitely gettin this game to keep me occupied while I wait to hit the slopes.

IMO, plenty of them. In fact, I really think that most of the boxes and rails in the game are setup pretty well. YMMV though.

i used to play ESPN X-Games Pro Boarder on my PS1 when i was like 6/7.
it had like morgan lafonte who i always had a mad crush on because she'd ride in a sports bra.
i was obsessed with that game,

Amped 2 is by far my favourite snowboard game to date.. Much more realistic than amped 3 which felt like a lame newer tony hawk..

But something far more interesting that I read today was that a new SSX is in the works and most of the skate team is working on it..
