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.

Gahh, I always make plans to dress up as some gaming icon, but never do. =(
Since I'm a male, I would not be able to dress up as Tali very well. So I want to dress up as a Male Quarian. Maybe something like Kal Reegar. But there is no way I'd be able afford that.
Definitely dressing up as Salvador. I'm not as short, but I am stocky and my hair is long enough for that spike at the front.
Some one from the Assassin's Creed Series.
Baird from Gears!
I don't know if he's in a game or not, but i'm looking at going as Archangel from X-Men.
If I had to chose I'd probably chose to be Ash from Pokemon ... Legends never die , kid.
There are 5 different video game characters I want to go as. 1. A Quarian from ME. 2. I'm now interested in going as Claptrap, thanks people above. 3. Logan from Dead Island. 4. Leon S. Kennedy, RE. 5. Malcolm Reynold, from firefly. Firefly needs to be a game, people!
I guess im weird i don't dress up for halloween <_<
I'll be going as Alice (American McGee's Alice) this year. So excited :D
Well, I'm dressing up as Finn from Adventure Time, so I don't know if that counts (Adventure Time 3DS game).
If I could dress up as a video game character though, I think I'd dress up as The Joker, Link or Nathan Drake. Hell, if I had an Isaac Clarke Engineering Suit, I'd go with that, too! I can't wait to see everyone's costume!
I can't dress up because I don't have the cash to spend on the right props, but I would go as the 11th doctor. Technically he is in a video game!!!!!
im actually dressing up in my own rendition of an assassin. it was kind of a last minute decision, but i think it's come together well.
I've been working on my TF2 Sniper costume for almost a month now (in short stints). It looks awesome!
My dream costume is a complete replica of Master Chief. Then I'd dress up in my World of Warcraft character with every piece of armor right, and complete with lights and mini fog machines for my shoulder pads.
Cactus Jack from WWE 13 if that counts?
