16 Awesome Halloween Gaming Pumpkins

Check out these amazing gaming inspired pumpkins.  WARNING: Some are jealousy inducing.

Halloween.  It’s a time for trick or treating and bingeing on low-budget horror movies.  It’s also the main time of the year when I realise how artistically-lacking I truly am, as I’m hacking away at a pumpkin knowing that at best it will look…abstract.

Not so for these gamers.  Their video game inspired pumpkins are works of art.  Prepare to feel jealous.

Dark Souls/Knight Solaire Gaming Pumpkin

With Halloween coming up, I was reminded of a pumpkin I carved last year. Thought you fellow gamers might enjoy it [Dark Souls] [Knight Solaire]

This pumpkin by Redditor kvothe2033 is brilliant.  It has just enough detail to look exceptional while being minimalist at the same time.

Shy Guy Gaming Pumpkin

I’m not all that talented at carving pumpkins but I’m happy with this one.
byu/AgentSkidMarks ingaming

Redditor AgentSkidMarks reckons they’re not good at carving pumpkins – we beg to differ.  Okay, so the lines aren’t as clean as some of the other efforts in this list, but who doesn’t love Shy Guy?  It’s simple but effective.  It also looks achievable by someone with my ability – though I’m sure that my effort would look depressing in comparison.

Space Invaders Gaming Pumpkin

Who says it needs to be complicated?  This Space Invaders pumpkin is simple but so effective.  The lines are clean, and the design is spot on.

Big Daddy Gaming Pumpkin

My Big Daddy Pumpkin 🎃 Bioshock has always been my favorite game to play when it’s Halloween time

Redditor TrevT2 had a tough task when trying to get Bioshock’s Big Daddy onto a pumpkin, but they succeeded marvellously.  This Big Daddy looks incredible.

Mario and Cappy Gaming Pumpkin

Now we’re talking!  Redditor Cancerianman raises the bar with this effort, using layering to create a pumpkin design that looks like it was drawn on paper.  Stunning.

Rocket League Gaming Pumpkins

Okay, so these are three entries by Imgur’s , but I honestly couldn’t choose just one.  I think it’s remarkable that even a video game like Rocket League can be used to create amazing pumpkin designs.  Kudos.

Link/Zelda Gaming Pumpkins

These pumpkins are simply incredible.  Link, his horse and the Zelda logo look like they could be official merchandise.  The detail is amazing.  It would be unmatched, except…

Firewatch Gaming Pumpkin

I carved the Firewatch cover art into my pumpkin this Halloween

Wow.  The level of detail in this Firewatch pumpkin is astounding.  Redditor epicflyman has worked miracles with their use of layering to create a design with depth and detail.  Mindblowing.

Donkey Kong and Diddy Kong Gaming Pumpkin

My pumpkin carving might be recognisable to some of you
byu/TDAM ingaming

Who doesn’t love a bit of nostalgia in their gaming-inspired pumpkins?  Redditor TDAM has used Donkey Kong and Diddy Kong to bring the memories flooding back and look darn good at the same time.

Squirtle Evolution Pokemon Gaming Pumpkin

Here’s my Squirtle Evolution Pumpkin
byu/PineappleBuns ingaming

This one gets featured for the level of creativity involved.  Redditor PineappleBuns has managed to get all three Squirtle evolutions into one design.  It’s really, really awesome.

Fallout Vault Boy Gaming Pumpkin

My Fallout pumpkin

Who doesn’t love a bit of Vault Boy?  The Fallout mascot looks brilliant in this design by Redditor Sir_Simon_.

Skyrim Gaming Pumpkin

My sister is good at carving pumpkins and also loves skyrim
byu/Ice3001 ingaming

So, the pumpkin on the right is reminiscent of what I can do.  The pumpkin on the left is what I can only dream of being capable of creating.

Shared by Redditor Ice3001, the Skyrim dragon design is without a doubt the most detailed I have ever seen.  The glow of the scales and teeth are manacing.  It’s something special.

Mario Gaming Pumpkin

Finished my pumpkin late last night
byu/Mea05cer ingaming

We had to finish with everyone’s favourite plumber, right?  Created by Redditor Mea05cer, this pumpkin has so much detail that you can’t help but be impressed.  Mario has never looked so good.
