10.DiRT 3 (2011, Xbox 360, PS3, PC)

Forza Horizon doesn't have a monopoly on racing in Colorado. The third installment of the mud-slinging racing DiRT series took Aspen -- where the beer flows like wine -- for a spin. Some of the courses show off the town's haughty ski-chalet ambiance, but it's mostly snow, snow, snow. Still, you'll save a fortune on lift tickets.

9.Colorado (1990, Amiga, PC)

Though this Old West adventuring game is vague on whether or not it takes place in our state, the name is a dead giveaway. The internet's die-hard Amiga fans consider this one a classic, but the premise of a lone explorer axing his way through hundreds of Native Americans is a little uncomfortable today. Maybe more than a little.
