The lights are on
Video games are cool. Dressing up is...also cool? People seem to like doing it anyway. With Halloween approaching, which video game icon are you thinking about dressing up as?
In college I knew a guy who dressed up like Pikachu one year. It was hilarious because it was a kid's costume and it didn't quite fit over his burly frame. Everyone laughed because it looked ridiculous, and he was a dork. That man was me. I think that's the last time I've dressed up as a video game character. (I all the pictures from that night were burned, so there is no proof this every actually happened.) If I was going to dress up as someone this year, I would probably go as an assassin from Assassin's Creed, because they show off a lot of ass, and no one laughs at them.
What's your most embarrassing Halloween costume? If you look cool no matter what you wear, then what are you dressing up as this year? If you're not dressing up, what would be your dream costume? If you think dressing up is for dorks and little kids, then get out of here. This is a safe zone! We don't hurt each other by laughing at them.

Well he wasn't a video game character earlier this year, but now I can say "Slenderman" and I won't be wrong! How bout that?
I'll dress up as Tim Turi dressing up as Dr. Wily. THE META WILL BE OUT OF CONTROL!
I would like to dress up as Zero or Maya from Borderlands 2....that is, if I actually celebrated Halloween in the slightest. I'll make that up, though, by cosplaying at a convention next year. >_>
Going to my friend's Halloween party as Ezio.
I've got a Steve head and pickaxe from minecraft.
Idk about embarrassing but an awesome sauce costume was Merlin from Sword in the Stone... I was in a band called "Merlin" and we loved Halloween shows, it was hard to play piano with a long white beard in the way the whole time... Wait, yeah, it was embarrassing.
Commander Keen. I know that nobody will get it, but I pay homage to retro gaming at its finest.
I'd probably go as Haggard from Battlefield Bad Company; I have the gear, it's just not in his color palette, and I'd have to find an 870 to use. (Plus, I really don't feel like growing a beard Ha!)
Human Man. Does whatever a human does.
I have this gas mask that's perfect for a Combine soldier, but nothing even resembling the black armor they wear.
Max Payne! :D I've got my costume pretty much set in stone, just need to make a few adjustments and buy some props. I plan on grabbing a phone, putting the Max Payne theme song on it, and blaring it in my pocket all night.
The spy from TF2. I am putting on a suit, a tie, dress pants, a ski mask, and a cap revolver.
Darth Maul from the Phantom Menace for the PlayStation
My Bane (from Batman comics and games) is almost completed.
