The Best Gaming Pumpkins of the Season!

With Halloween just around the corner, what better time is there to take a look at some of the best gaming-related pumpkins out there this year?

I'm sure by now most of you have gotten a chance to cut into a defenseless pumpkin, if you're into such things, and so I bring you the cream of the carved crop!

The fantastic Limbo carving you see above was the work of reader Dennis Cwik. Well done!
