In the spirit of this festive holiday season, last week I asked our 'shop-savvy readers to design the most wonderful ugly video game holiday sweater of them all. I'd wear every one of these, all at once, with this Bad Dudes one on top.

Thanks to the magic of putting extra text in the winner image, you can see that GiantBoyDetective came out on top of last week's contest. It was incredibly close between his entry and the Pokemon-themed entry from Sindor, which you'll see immediately below the "Honorable Mentions" header. Ultimately I determined that Sindor's entries were far too pretty. That, and my sister saw GiantBoyDetective's over my shoulder and wanted to know where she could by it. If she wants one, it's gotta be the best of the worst.

But hey, don't feel sad everyone else. You guys get featured too!

This Week's Honorable Mentions
