Worst. Gaming Sweater. Ever.

It’s the Christmas season, and that means there are two things you can count on: a decided lack of gaming news as all the developers take their holidays, and some really bad gifts from folks in your family. Let’s face it everyone has an Aunt Thelma who still thinks that “that Mario fellow” represents exactly what gaming is about today.

Aunt Thelma sees something that’s Mario-related, and she just can’t help herself. The sweater above is a perfect example of this phenomenon.

Seriously, anyone wearing this sweater in a school environment had better settle in for a routine series of wedgies, noogies and straight up ass beatings. This might not be the worst gaming gift ever, but I’d wager it’s one of the more dangerous ones.

Like… wow. Ya know how there were clothes and styles back in the day that people thought were cool, but would get you laughed at/ass kicked today? Well this thing would’ve got your ass kicked in 1985 just as much as 2010. Feel bad for that dude, looks like a dork as it is without help from “Aunt Thelma”.

You mispelled “best”, Ron.

I’d buy that for a dollar!

Nothing wrong with that. Just have the wrong person wearing it. Stick in Megan Fox and you’d be looking at THE MUST HAVE CHRISTMAS SWEATER of this year.

Mario should be hitting the hidden 1-up mushroom. That would make it cool. ;)

As far as sweater vests go, that is the coolest.

Brilliant. Start the bidding at $100.

Such a lie, I don’t have an aunt Thelma.


On December 16, 2010 at 11:49 am

I’d wear it.

Don’t be an idiot. That sweater’s a unique design and hand knitted for the knitter’s husband (so please stop your oh-so-altruistic worrying about those impressionable middle schoolers), and both are done extremely well. (Added to that, if you think that retro gaming is passe, please do a quick google search. I think you’re a wee bit out of touch.)

I’d wear that! I’ve already got a Mario shirt and a World of Warcraft shirt, so why not a Mario sweater? :D

That player sucks. They missed the mushroom on the first pass and had to turn around to hit the block.

I would wear the hell out of that now… back when i was a kid, probably not. that is totally awesome
