One of the best things about Halloween, aside from it being the only day of the year when it’s appropriate to cosplay at work, is the prolific use of pumpkins. Once fall hits, everything gets pumpkinized: Pumpkin beer, pumpkin coffee, pumpkin butter, pumpkin bread, pumpkin pasta.
Even hollowing out the pumpkins to get their tasty innards can be a treat, especially for those of us who like carve the shells for Halloween. For most of us, however, our limited skills leave us with only a standard Jack O’Lantern with uneven eyes and a lopsided grin. Thankfully, some pumpkin lovers are far more talented, and they’ve taken pumpkin carving to the next level by creating video game-themed pieces of art out of the hollow shells of pumpkins. After much scouring and about a dozen pumpkin lattes, we’ve assembled a list of the 50 best video game pumpkins.
