Twitter Celebrates Halloween With Video Game Inspired Pumpkins
It's 31 October, 2018, and I still haven't carved the ASDA pumpkin that's sat in my kitchen since last week.
Half the reason is because I'm a spooky-Scrooge, and would much rather play Red Dead Redemption 2. The other half is because I'm bored of regular pumpkin designs, and I haven't been able to think of anything better myself.
Thankfully, Twitter exists, and when I eventually got round to researching cool ideas I stumbled upon a Halloween themed Moments thread. Not only did it feature a number of pretty cool pumpkins, but the design were all inspired by video games - brilliant. Sadly, no one made this Gaben masterpiece a reality:
From Fallout 76 and Fortnite all the way to The Legend of Zelda and Pokémon, gamers have cut, scooped, and perfected their way through hundreds - if not thousands - of pumpkins, but only the best were selected for Twitter's dedicated gallery.

I've been absolutely addicted to Mario Odyssey lately, so when carving my Halloween pumpkin, there was only one thing I could do :wink::jack_o_lantern: @NintendoUK @NintendoAmerica @Nintendo#Halloween #Halloween2018 #pumpkin #pumpkincarving #Mario pic.twitter.com/qg31tHSTO3- :spider_web:️ Colesy Cobweb :spider_web:️:ghost::jack_o_lantern: (@ColesyGaming) October 29, 2018
I think I'd have to say Astrela's Vault Boy is my favourite, with the highly-detailed Bowser coming in at a close second. Which is yours?
Make sure you send in your pumpkins if you think they're better, and let us know which character you'd like to see undergo a Halloween makeover.
I'm going for a Red Dead 2 inspired design. Arthur would look smashing as a bright orange fruit.
