One of the greatest video game openings of all time made somehow even better.

Last week’s contest was to take the dancing hot dog and dump him into your favorite gaming locales. The enthusiasm seemed to be somewhat lacking and for a hot second I thought maybe I’d introduced one of the worst prompts in ‘Shop Contest history.

But then Jacob Lindenmoyer showed up and saved the day. The world feels a little more hopeful now, a little more pure. Jacob will forever be remembered in the pantheon of Kotaku ‘Shop Contest winners for coming through in an especially dire time of need.

As far as honorable mentions go, I also really enjoyed this gruesome display from Phobox.

And of course, as always, here’s a bunch of other entries you all were kind enough to send in.
